Amott Road, Peckham Rye
Search over! Enhanced and immaculate three double bedroom Victorian terrace of 1322 square feet, with an on point architect-designed rear extension - which leads directly onto a delightful south-facing garden (with cool timber-clad shed too).
Welcome features throughout the house include sash windows, custom window shutters, old school style radiators, beautiful built-in storage, tiled and parquet flooring detail (in the hall and through-reception rooms respectively), and underfloor heating to the kitchen/dining room and bathroom.
Find the dreamy turnkey home on a residential street which is close to Peckham Rye Station and Bellenden Road (walk just eight minutes to each). You’re also a short walk from Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres, and from East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane - both are also eight minutes by foot.
In your front door and you have two formal reception rooms to your left. Connect or divide these with the original doors (in a classy navy hue). The rooms are over 13 feet by over 11 feet, and over 11 feet by nearly 10 feet. Beautiful traditional twin fireplaces feature in both rooms - with cast iron inserts and marble surrounds, and the alcove nearest the big bay window has built-in storage; perfect for the TV, entertainment bits/wires and book storage/your fave framed photographs.
Enter the huge kitchen/dining room from the second reception, or from the hall. Before entering from the hall, there’s a neat under stairs w.c. to your right. What a room! Your very-C21st rear room runs over 27 feet by over 14 feet - taking full advantage of the plot - and incorporating a full kitchen with island with a generous dining area beyond that; with wall-wide sliding glazing onto the sun trap garden. Large format square tiling runs through this space, and the former side-return area is artfully-glazed - giving you loads of light and sky to enjoy both day and night.
The fitted kitchen is a slick modern affair with simply loads of cupboard and counter space, and high-end integrated appliances as well. The island provides for breakfast/bar seating for four comfortably, too. It’s all a bit glorious.
Beyond the natural dining area, the garden has both paved and lawned areas, with smart well-stocked borders, and contemporary timber fencing which makes the space really private. Cleverly, a useful timber-clad shed has been incorporated seamlessly onto the plot; accessed at the rear of the garden.
Dragging yourself out of the sun and upstairs - from the half-landing you’ve got a full and dishy windowed bathroom to your left (contemporary fittings and sanitary ware here and a free-standing bath plus independent shower), and your first double bedroom - set to the rear, with pretty garden views.
From the (skylit) landing proper, find your second bedroom to your left - it’s over 11 feet by 10 feet with built-in alcove closet, and your large master which takes the width of the terrace - at over 15 feet by 11 feet, and with a wall of bespoke built-in closets.
