KALMARs can also confirm that 90% of units at Lordship House were sold prior to practical completion, and that 50% of buyers made an offer following their first viewing of the property.The prices at Lordship House started from £450,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £575,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, with homes available through the Help to Buy incentive for first time buyers. The buyer demographic at Lordship House has been purchasers between the ages of 25 to 31-years old, with the development’s penthouse sold to a company Director.Lordship Lane is one of the most sought-after streets for South London buyers. Painted in 1871 by French impressionist painter Camille Pissarro, Lordship Lane serves as the local high street and hub for East Dulwich and is one of the oldest streets in the region, dating back to Tudor times and predating the Victorian buildings that line the lane. Lordship House and other buildings on the street were originally constructed between 1865-1885, creating a local suburban-village which is now a sought-after London address.
Behind the retained Victorian brick and white-render façade, Lordship House provides new apartments over ground and three upper floors. There are four generously sized one-bedroom apartments, either 512 sqft or 546 sqft in size; three two-bedroom apartments, up to 786 sqft in size; and the two-bedroom penthouse which provides 977 sqft of living space opening onto a circa 400sqft rooftop terrace.With interior designs by Josh Stone of design house Caroline Peterson Interiors, who have been voted one of the UK’s top 100 interior designers, the apartment’s high specification included engineered timber flooring to the living and dining area and a bespoke-designed kitchen with sleek white base and cupboard storage units and integrated appliances.A selection of the larger apartments, including the penthouse, benefitted from a master bedroom suite with luxurious ensuite bathroom. The stylishly appointed bathrooms and ensuites had underfloor heating, marble and stone effect Minoli Tiles, fitted mirrors and white cantilevered sanitaryware. Marc Faure, Head of New Homes at KALMARs said, “Lordship House is a charming addition to the East Dulwich area, so the success of this development comes as no surprise to the KALMARs team. The scheme’s exquisite retained Victorian façade, together with the impressive design and specification of all the apartments provides residents with the best quality homes in Dulwich.”
