An absolutely stunning, unique apartment extending to over 1,500 square feet and spanning the entire first floor of a converted, detached, Georgian villa with a garden to the side. It was built around 1779 for Col Henry Smith, next to Grove Hill (the villa built for Dr John Coakley Lettsom which has since been demolished.) Henry Smith was a shipping merchant and a friend of Lettsom who was a physician, philanthropist, founder of the Medical Society of London and a keen botanist playing a major role in the distribution of new plants and seeds in Britain. There is a gravel driveway to the front with well maintained flowerbeds, mature trees and hedges around the front and sides of the building. There are delightful views over Lettsom Gardens and Camberwell Guild allotments to the rear.
Grove Park is an attractive road in a conservation area off Camberwell Grove and ideally situated for the amenities of Camberwell, East Dulwich and the increasingly popular Bellenden Road which is 0.4 miles away. Both Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye stations are within easy reach, with services to Victoria and Blackfriars as well as Overground services to Clapham Jct, Canada Water (for the Jubilee Line) Whitechapel and Shoreditch. Lettsom Gardens, to the rear of the property is a semi-private communal garden that was originally part of Dr Lettsom's extensive botanical gardens. The gardens can be accessed by joining the Lettsom gardens association and becoming a key holder.
