The Old Bakery in East Dulwich SE22 is currently on sale with The Modern House for £1,250,000 (Freehold)
This fantastic property, formerly a bakery, is arranged over two floors, with in excess of 1,700sq ft of internal space and a courtyard garden. The entrance is via a pair of tall wooden gates that lead to a courtyard garden. The front door, on the other side of the courtyard, opens onto a large entrance hall, used by the current owners as a library and general living area. On the ground floor there is a main bedroom, with attached dressing room, as well as a second bedroom, WC and utility room.
The stairs leading to the first floor area are one of the finest features of the house as they display the original white bakery tiles and metal framed windows. The first floor is largely taken up by a wonderful reception room, into which light floods in through a large roof light. There is also a kitchen / breakfast room on this floor and a shower room with WC. The second floor includes a small storage room with access to spectacular rooftop views across to Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge. Permission has been granted to add a third floor and remodel the current interior to designs by the renowned architects Waugh Thistleton.
The property is a short walk from Lordship Lane, one of London’s best local high streets thanks to its outstanding range of shops, cafes and restaurants (and a new independent cinema in the pipeline). East Dulwich train station is a ten minute walk from the house, and buses into central London are plentiful.
