The property is can be manipulated into a variety of forms, with this room currently being used as a second lounge and office area

The open-plan lounge is pictured from a different angle here, and includes a table and chairs. There are also large dividers which can be drawn or opened depending on what you wish to use the room for

The property is also fortunate enough to have a garden area, where residents can go outside and enjoy the summer sunshine

    The semi-detached property, which boasts ‘sleek oak doors, white wash wooden flooring, brushed steel fixtures’, also come with a separate self-contained flat with its own private entrance.    

    A listing for the property, marketed by Wooster & Stock, reads: ‘Boasting an impressive architectural remodelling, this incredible 1960s Camberwell Grove property, supplies bright, spacious and versatile accommodation.

    ‘The finish is bespoke and elegant throughout – you’ll spy sleek oak doors, white wash wooden flooring, brushed steel fixtures and top notch Scandinavian double glazed windows. 

    ‘Laid over four generous floors, the property has been designed with maximum flexibility in mind.’ 

    In the kitchen, there are Quartz counters which run the full width of the room. While appliances include an integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer.

    Elsewhere, the property offers a great deal of flexibility. The top floor can be used as two bedrooms, or one room can be reconfigured as a stunning bathroom with tree top views. 

    The listing continues: ‘The house sits confidently at the end of a terrace half way up the eastern side of Camberwell Grove. 

    ‘There is plenty of mature greenery and surrounding period charm with an inimitable mix of Georgian, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century architecture.’

    The office area opens onto a small garden area and patio. It is located on the ground level of property, which stretches across four floors

    The property currently contains five bedrooms (one of which is pictured), but a bedroom on the top floor could be reconfigured as a stunning bathroom with tree top views

    Another of the five bedrooms is pictures, and offers views onto the Georgian, Regency, Victorian, Edwardian and 20th century architecture of the area

    The property is spread across four floors (pictured), with a large kitchen and reception room occupying the first. The total approximate floor area is 1,756 square feet

    Comedy legend Mr Jones only lived in the property for a short while, but anyone who snaps up the property will live in a property once owned by two media legends.  

    Mr Jones often used property gags during his time on Monty Python. In Monty Python and the Holy Grail his character, Prince Herbert, questions his father, the King of Swamp Castle, whether his inheritance is curtains.

    It is all a misunderstanding however, and the King actually means the land through the window. Not the curtains. The comedy troupe’s Four Yorkshiremen sketch also made light of property – with the reminiscing characters describing their increasingly diabolical accommodation.  

    Mr Finney, who played Ebenezer Scrooge, Sir Winston Churchill and ‘Daddy’ Warbucks in Annie in a long and extraordinary career, owned the property after Jones. 

    He was known as British cinema’s original ‘angry young man’ and starred alongside Liza Minelli, Audrey Hepburn and Julia Roberts. He died in February after a short illness.
