Alpha Street, Peckham Rye
Viewings from Saturday 28th May.
Architecturally-treated and extended mid-C19th link-detached house of 2024 square feet. Its plot is supersized (the sellers purchased neighbouring land in 2011) and seriously-sunny, with access.
Walk just four minutes to Peckham Rye Station. You’re also close to Rye Lane, and to Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres.
A generous entrance hall is a delightful welcome, in a cheerful yellow hue, with a cute circular window. A downstairs/guest w.c. sits to your right. To your left is the double-aspect double-reception - of over 23 feet by over 13 feet. Welcome features here include two working fireplaces (one has a wood-burning stove), wooden floors, and sash windows; delightful box work and wooden shutters to these.
On theme, another large room follows - the huge kitchen/reception room - which stretches over 30 feet by over 14 feet, with huge double-glazed sliding doors (onto decking/the enormous garden). It’s a real ‘heart of the home’ space, which is as equally well-suited to parties for many, as to day to day life with your happy few. The generous fitted kitchen is a timeless Shaker-style in two colours, with smart counters and open shelf detail.
Beyond this room - completing the tour of downstairs - you’ve got a bedroom/play room (of over 12 feet by over 10 feet), an independent utility room, and a downstairs shower room. You’re catered for many a setup. There’s also an additional door to the garden from the lobby area.
Up to the first floor and in the original part of the house you have two good double bedrooms, and two sash-windowed bathrooms with white traditional-style sanitary ware (one is an en suite shower room to the master bedroom at the front of the house).
A cool glazed gallery landing space leads to the final bedroom with large window - it’s a roomy double, of over 15 feet by over 10 feet. All the bedrooms have pale carpets, and the master bedroom has deep custom-made alcove closets.
We'll let the pictures do the talking on the large, lovely, mostly-walled garden; delights here include both plum and cherry trees.
Peckham continues to be rather an epic place to call home. The restaurant, bar, shop and cafe offering is particularly strong, more often than not independently-run, and welcomes all ages. We particularly rate Artusi, Review, Ganapati, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Miss Tapas, The Begging Bowl, Mr Bao, Peckham Bazaar, Forza Wine, Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex.
Lordship Lane in the other direction (walk here in under 15 minutes) has great spots and shopping and socialising as well. We like Franklins, SMBS, William Rose, Mons, Chener Books and the Picturehouse cinema. North Cross Road puts on a lovely Saturday market too.
Useful handy high street shops and banks are found on both Peckham’s Rye Lane and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane. Nunhead’s fairly close too - for its village-feel high street and its glorious Victorian Cemetery.
On East Dulwich Road - walk a few minutes - just before you get to lovely Goose Green, you have a handy Tesco store and a parade of shops with classy ice cream parlour and a Hop Burns & Black bottle shop. East Dulwich leisure centre is also on this stretch.
Local schools include The Belham, Bellenden Primary and The Villa (Nursery and Pre-Prep.).
