DescriptionEnter Hopewell Yard, a distinctive property redeveloped in the 1990s, through the electronic gates. There's parking in the cobbled courtyard with allocated parking for one car. There is a car park pass that you could give to guests if you are not using it.
When you enter the first floor property, the first thing you notice is the striking stripped wooden flooring that runs throughout the flat. On the left is a white modern kitchen with metro tile wall, adding a touch of Scandinavian minimalist style The kitchen and lounge are semi-open plan, ideal for having friends over for dinner parties.
The lounge is large enough at 18' x 15' for an L-Shaped 4 seater sofa and a table that dines 6. It is filled with plenty of natural light from a south facing window and a Juliette balcony with double doors which overlooks the communal cobbled yard/car park.
The master bedroom has in-built cupboards and a lovely curved shape. A south facing window lets lots of light stream in. The second bedroom or office is very slightly smaller but still a good sized double bedroom with storage space. The bathroom features a shower-over bath, sink, WC, and a newly installed boiler feeding a central heating system.
Transport links are fantastic - you're a 15 min bus ride away from Elephant & Castle, Brixton, and Oval stations, and a 10 minute walk to Denmark Hill station. Camberwell is close to central London but has a village feel.
It's very much a foodie, culturally vibrant village. There are several restaurants that have had excellent reviews in national newspapers including: the Camberwell Arms; Nandine serving the best Persian food in London - a favourite of food critic Jay Rayner; Theo's incredible sourdough pizza; Good Neighbour which has the feel of a New York bar serving great cocktails and sharing plates; and a brilliant, traditional old boozer The Hermits Cave.
Camberwell has a weekly Farmers Market on the Green every Saturday and several independent food shops. Irene's on Denmark Hill bakes great bread and pastries - ideal for a weekend breakfast. Gladwells' Supermarket sells the best of British fruit, veg and meat as well as interesting ingredients from local producers and the kind of wine you will definitely not usually find in a high street Supermarket.
The Peckham Theatre is 5 minutes from central Camberwell and the South London Art Gallery is a little further down the same road. Camberwell Arts Festival, London's longest continuously running arts festival, happens every year with events, performances and exhibitions in all kinds of venues.
Camberwell has plenty of green spaces - Burgess Park, Brunswick Park and Ruskin park - there is plenty of space for joggers and Burgess Park has a number of tennis courts.
