Camberwell’s wide, tree-lined slopes are the first high point reached when travelling south from central London. The lack of a Tube station has, to some extent, helped to preserve the area’s identity. Away from the small and busy “Green” are delightful Georgian and Victorian houses, popular with doctors, barristers and media high-fliers.
Grove Lane survives virtually intact as a splendid street of late 18th-century houses, justifying its conservation area status, and a meticulously designed and built new terrace fits neatly into this setting.
Fittingly, too, this year marks the 300-year anniversary of the dawn of the Georgian era. “Not everybody wants to live in a glass tower overlooking the river,” says Sebastian Kelly of developer Shaw Building Group, whose other projects include bespoke houses for renowned architects.
“We have worked painstakingly with the Camberwell Society and local amenity groups to make sure their neighbourhood is preserved for future generations.” Behind the façade of 64 Grove Lane are eight large and thoughtfully designed apartments, comprising six three-bedroom homes and two four-bedroom duplexes. A five-bedroom end-of-terrace house is also for sale. Prices from £695,000 to £1,399,950. Completion is scheduled for spring next year. Call estate agent Caddington Blue on 020 7407 9427.
