Landcroft Road finds itself conveniently located within the East Dulwich area. The road offers a diverse number of properties, the vast majority of which were built in the Victorian era. As such, the street sees predominantly family houses and period conversions.
This house is one of a small number on Landcroft Road benefiting from three full floors without an extension. Due to this, it offers much more space than the average Victorian terraces within the area. The ground floor has a double reception room with two fireplaces, a kitchen and downstairs guest W/C; there are high ceilings and period features throughout. The reception room has French doors leading out onto a large patio and south west facing garden, which can also be accessed via the kitchen. There is potential to carry out a large side return and still have plenty of garden space left over. The neighbouring property has carried out a similar side return so although it would still be subject to planning permission, precedent has already been set to carry out this work.
On the first floor, the property offers two double bedrooms, one of which is a good size, the other being huge. There is also a large family bathroom with a unique original fireplace. The second floor offers an additional two double bedrooms, again one being a good size and the other being very large. The larger of the two on this floor benefits from stunning views of Canary Wharf, The Shard, The Gherkin, to name just a few.
The property has just undergone cosmetic improvement throughout. This includes new kitchen worktops and tiles, a full re-paint, new carpets, new radiators and new bathroom fittings.
The property also offers potential to carry out a loft conversion and create a fourth floor, again something which has already been done by neighbouring properties on Landcroft Road but would still be STPP.
The surrounding location is very attractive, particularly to families. Both Heber and Goodrich Primary Schools are highly rated schools that are within short walking distance of the property. The prestigious Dulwich College, founded in1619, is only a 7 minute journey away by car, or approximately 15 minutes by bus. Alleyn's School, rated 'outstanding' by ISI, and James Allen’s Girls’ School are also close by. All three schools can be reached via a pleasant walk.
The house is parallel to Lordship Lane, which offers residents a wide variety of historic pubs, popular restaurants, brunch spots, an independent cinema and boutique gym, as well as boutique shops, so the area caters to a wide variety of residents. Dulwich library is just around the corner and Dulwich Park is a short walk away. There are good transport links, with East Dulwich and North Dulwich stations being within easy reach and numerous bus routes can be accessed from Lordship Lane.
Currently tenanted, the house is in a condition that's ready to move into but would ideally suit a buyer who wants to put their own cosmetic stamp on what is already a fantastic house.
