Brunswick House is offered to the market for the first time in a generation and this remarkable detached Victorian house, which dates from 1871, comes with a separate three bedroom coach house, beautiful secluded garden with swimming pool and sits on peaceful corner opposite one of South London's best kept secrets, Myatt's Fields Park.

Steeped in local history, Brunswick House sits proudly in The Minet Conservation Area and is arguably one of the most important houses to come to the market in Camberwell for many years.

A discreet gated entry to the property leads past the front garden to the front door. Once you step into the entrance hall the grand staircase and period detailing are immediately evident. The ground floor is the real hub of the house, being of grand proportions, filled with space and light courtesy of superb ceiling height and large windows. However, it is at once homely, relaxing and well lived in, with the beautiful kitchen providing dreamy views towards the park. The living room sits off the kitchen to the rear of the house, with French doors leading out on to a huge terrace that spans the width of the house and suddenly you are transported to another world, as the huge garden swings into view. There is also a peaceful study room looking out to the garden.

The garden itself is exceptionally large for such a centrally located private house and along with the shrubberies, trees and mature lawn features a fabulous outdoor swimming pool, which is now being prepped for the Summer months ahead. There is also a useful workshop.

The lower ground floor currently consists of two very large double bedrooms and a single room plus two bathrooms. It is also has its own side access, which could be of interest to those looking for a teenager's hangout or staff flat within the main house. The front room would make an excellent games room or cinema room.

The beautiful staircase sweeps you up to the first floor where three bedrooms, a study and bathroom await you, with the principal bedroom having an en-suite bathroom and stunning views towards the park. There is scope here to create a very substantial and self-indulgent principal bedroom suite, if that is a requirement.

The second (top) floor has an additional three double bedrooms and family bathroom.

Brunswick House also comes with The Coach House, an attached and sizeable three bedroom freehold house, with off-street parking. Currently rented out, The Coach House could continue as useful rental investment property, or could offer a number of potential uses to those who are perhaps looking for a creative home studio space, be it an artist, gallery owner or collector. It would make a fantastic home recording studio, or house a small classic car collection.

A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire this remarkable property, in an area of London that has always been home to those in the media and creative arts world and is now attracting a wide variety of people for its quiet yet buzzy atmosphere and independent spirit. Camberwell and Brixton are now gastronomic destinations in their own right and yet The South Bank, Central London and The City remain easy to reach from this trendy corner of South London.
