Beltwood House, 41, Sydenham Hill, Camberwell SE26 - Southwark

Large mid-Victorian villa, possibly by Banks and Barry, Dulwich College architects. The house was remodelled in the neoclassical style in circa 1895. The building contains fine interiors, but is currently partially occupied by live-in guardians and suffering from the effects of water ingress. The curtilage buildings (stables, lodge, two cottages and animal store) are in a very poor state of repair. Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent have now been granted for conversion to flats, with development in the surrounding gardens. Works are due to commence in 2018.
