Live Work In Camberwell - Empress Mews, London, SE5
Guide Price £995,000
A rare live work in Camberwell this end of terrace mews house of 1317 square feet – with direct access to a walled south-facing garden, plus a demised secure gated parking space.
Interior-designer owned and curated, stylish space is delivered ‘turn-key’ and ready to go and delivers two reception spaces (the lounge area a cool mezzanine level), three double bedrooms and three bathrooms; one to each of the three floors. Long leasehold of over 900 years.
Enter through the security gate, which has a remote button on the vehicle gate, the front door opens to a generous lobby area with a built-in coat closet. Stairs lead up to your left.
Turn right through double doors and find a glorious double-height kitchen/dining room which stretches 20 feet from the front double doors to rear ones. The amount of glazing is just brilliant – the house boasts great natural light.
Gorgeous herringbone parquet hardwood flooring features to the ground floor and you have an incredible Italian-made and installed kitchen by Oikos Cucine – with central island, and Carrara marble worktops and splashback. The appliances are Bosch and built-in: fridge/freezer, super quiet dishwasher, fan oven, fan oven/microwave, induction hob (and there is a gas connection present to enable a change of kitchen appliances). There is a whole-house water filtration system by Aquatiere (which can be bypassed if desired).
An immaculate shower room sits off this room, and next to the door to this is a large built-in cupboard (there’s good, well-planned storage throughout the house: all built-in). Open double doors out to the garden. This is a real sun trap – with an awning in place if it gets too sunny – and it has lawned and paved areas, plus a built-in BBQ/bar area, and a large shed that’s staying. There is a fixed water irrigation system for all back-garden planters.
The mezzanine reception is a stroke of genius: a cool and carpeted space, with exposed steel work plus glazed panels, that’s well-lit and the perfect spot for relaxing day or evening.
Up to the first floor and you have a south-facing double bedroom of over 10 feet by nearly 9. It’s currently enjoyed as a double office. The generous master bedroom is also on this floor: a luxurious room with a defined dressing area (built-in mirrored wardrobes work really well here), and beyond this you access a flawless shower room.
It’s up to the second floor for the third double bedroom (note the hidden storage set behind the bed area) with Juliet balcony, and a full bathroom with both a free-standing bath and independent shower. The sanitary ware and fittings are high-end and contemporary in style – as throughout.
Central Camberwell is really close for pubs, handy shops, banks and a Saturday Farmers’ Market on Camberwell Green. It’s also got some great restaurants, special mentions to The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road and Theo’s for pizza. In the opposite direction – down Coldharbour Lane – you’ll find Brixton – with more and varied options like Brixton Village, Tim Anderson’s Nanban, and Three Eight Four cocktail bar. You’re but a mile from Brixton tube and also The Ritzy cinema. For more options, Peckham and Herne Hill are also a short bus ride or cycle.
