An opportunity to rent a delightful 3 bed detached house which was formerly the Lodge to the larger Bell House in Dulwich Village. Available unfurnished from 1st. May 2021.
Bell House is a magnificent and historic Grade II Listed family home set in grounds of just under two acres.
Originally built in 1767 for a former Lord Mayor of London as a Georgian country villa, and named after its architecturally noteworthy bell tower, Bell House is an extremely rare and beautiful property that has been a family house for over 20 years, and before that belonged to Dulwich College.
The Lodge may have been designed by, and is certainly in the style of, George Tappen the Dulwich College architect and surveyor, who was active on the Dulwich Estate from 1804, so this could have been a later addition.
Renovated, modernised & decorated some 4 years ago the property has a living room on the ground floor with a kitchen consisting of a one and a half bowl stainless steel single drainer sink with mixer tap, a range of fitted cupboards & drawers with melamine work surfaces & tiled splashbacks; Lamona electric hob & oven, an extractor hood, a Hotpoint fridge/freezer & a tiled floor. On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms (one of which is accessed via another) and a bathroom with separate W.C.
The house is set in an excellent location right in the heart of sought after Dulwich Village with the leafy delights of Dulwich Park, the famous Picture Gallery and Dulwich and Sydenham golf course on your doorstep along with all the varied amenities that SE21 offers. Families with children will note that Dulwich College and Dulwich College Prep school, Dulwich Village Infants, Alleyns and James Allen's Girls Schools are all a short stroll away.
For those that enjoy a walk, Sydenham Woods, part of which is a nature reserve, is close by while you are also only a short drive to the fabulous Horniman Museum popular with children and adults alike, with it's pretty gardens and grounds that offer green space galore along with stunning views across London. The Museum itself has an amazing mix of eclectic anthropological delights, a musical instrument exhibition as well as an indoor wasps nest, a cafe and a large aquarium!
