Kennington Park Road, Kennington, SE11
Winkworth are proud to present this exceptionally renovated, three-bedroom Georgian House, situated on the south-side of one of Kennington’s most prestigious garden squares. EPC Exempt.
This property has gone through a top-to-toe renovation of the highest quality and benefits from the maximum one could extend at the rear, making it one of the most exceptional houses on Cleaver Square. No expense has been spared and this is obvious from the moment you step through the front door.
As you enter the house on the raised ground floor, you are greeted by an extremely spacious dining area with dark wooden flooring throughout, a beautiful stone working fireplace, and a glass balustrade providing a view down into the reception room below. Ahead of you is a stairway leading down to the kitchen/breakfast room and reception room at the rear of the property. Before reaching the kitchen, you will find a guest loo tucked away under the stairs.
The kitchen is immaculately finished with marble worktops and an abundance of storage. There is a large island unit in the centre, a Britannia range cooker with gas hob and extractor fan above, an integrated dishwasher and additionally two built-in Miele combination and steam ovens. This room is complimented by double French doors, which can be opened out onto the front garden. Between the kitchen and reception room is a breakfast area, with space for a dining table and chairs.
The reception space at the rear of the property can be accessed either from the kitchen/breakfast room or the dining room upstairs. Benefitting from a sizeable rear extension, this room is a fantastic space for relaxing or entertaining and it enjoys views out onto the pristine garden, accessed through glass bi-folding doors.
The first floor provdes two double bedrooms, with the large bedroom at the front and a smaller, at the back. The front bedroom has lovely views of the square and benefits from fitted storage, as well as space for free-standing storage and a double bed. The smaller bedroom also accommodates a double bed and free-standing storage, with views out onto the garden below. Between the raised ground and first floor is a family bathroom, in the rear addition. Finished to an extremely high standard with Carrera marble throughout, this room also benefits from additional storage space incorporating a washing machine, a bath with shower above, basin with vanity mirror above, W.C. and a heated towel rail.
The top floor is truly a breathtaking space, which immediately reflects the uniqueness of the house. The ceiling has been vaulted, providing unrivalled ceiling height; this, combined with the south-facing skylights, creates the brightest of spaces. The bedroom has an abundance of fitted storage and plenty of space for a king-size bed. This bedroom also has the advantage of a cleverly designed en-suite, with a W.C. and walk-in shower.
The garden is deceptively large with a hidden vegetable patch at the far end. It is a charming green space with mature flowerbeds around the perimeter and a beautiful lawn extending almost the whole length. It also has the enviable advantage of being south-facing.
Cleaver Square is set in the heart of Kennington between Kennington Park Road and Kennington Lane. The attractive garden square is known for petanque and as a meeting ground for the locals; you might find them in The Prince of Wales Pub.
