Smart and charming two bedroom, two reception, flat-fronted Victorian terrace of 1000 square feet, that's complete with a south-facing (hello, sunshine!) part-walled garden of 36 feet. Find it on one of Peckham Rye’s finest tree-lined streets within the Holly Grove conservation area, placing you mere strides from Peckham Rye Station, Bellenden Road and Rye Lane. Freehold.
A neat front garden sets the house back from the pavement. From the hall, swing a right into the through-reception with stripped wooden floors, French doors onto the wide-side-return, and an on-trend wood-burning stove. The second reception space has an original decorative fireplace, and both rooms enjoy built-in storage (in shelf and cupboard form) to their respective alcoves. At the end of the hall is a thoughtfully-extended and double-aspect kitchen/diner that extends 21 feet. Slick white matt units topped with marble counters are both pleasing and practical choices. At the foot of the room in the dining space you have folding double-glazed doors (taking most of the wall) onto the garden, and two double-glazed skylight windows as well.
Up to the half landing and you open into a study/dressing area (or both!) with built-in cupboards to one wall, before opening into the windowed bathroom that’s a neat white affair with swish contemporary fittings, over bath shower and large profile tiling. Up to the landing proper for the two double bedrooms. The first to your left is 11 feet by over 10, with pale carpet, old school style radiator, original fireplace and built-in cupboard, and to the front of the house is the large master - of over 16 feet by over 10 - with two sash windows onto leafy street views, and another decorative period fireplace.
Walk just a couple of minutes to Peckham Rye Station (zone 2) for Overground and regular train services. Buses are also local on nearby Rye Lane (you can cut through Choumert Grove Car Park). Shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants of high repute are all within easy reach. We like Petitou, Anderson’s and Small White Elephant for coffee and people-watching. Local restaurants include some of the tastiest and trendiest offerings in London. Check out Artusi, Levan, Peckham Bazaar, Ganapati, Pedler, Mr Bao and Miss Tapas, for starters (and mains, puddings and cocktails!).
Independent shops are a big thing on Bellenden Road and environs, examples are Gather (plastic free!), Flock and Herd butchery, Review book store and The General Store. Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex are a short walk, as is Peckham Plex Cinema (films for a fiver).
For more options, central Camberwell and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane are close. Local schools? Include The Belham (run by Dulwich Educational Trust) and Bellenden primaries, also The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. On Lyndhurst Grove. Your closest green spaces are Warwick Gardens and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. Continued...
