Set within a run of pretty Victorian terraced houses in East Dulwich, this two-bedroom flat spanning two floors provides a beautiful canvas for future owners to put their stamp on. A sizeable front garden and well-kept facade invite you into this graceful home, replete with original features such as sash windows, stripped kitchen floorboards, and an ornate bannister winding all the way up.
The east-facing kitchen catches the bright sun in the morning, making it the perfect spot for morning rituals while overlooking the trees in the gardens behind. The living room, with three large windows, occupies the front of the house and is flooded with natural light. There’s also a double bedroom on this floor and a handy guest cloakroom. A further bedroom, family bathroom and access to huge loft storage can be found on the top floor.
