Amott Road, Peckham Rye
Fine four double-bed, two bath Victorian double-bay-fronted terraced home of 1442 square feet (excluding the handy cellar).
The handsome home has spacious proportions and lots of great features, including stripped floors and doors, built-in storage and shelving, bespoke shutters in the front bays, and period fireplaces. You’ve got extension potential too: a number of houses on the road have extended into both the side return and the loft.
Amott Road is a tree-lined residential street with permit-parking, very near to good schools, and the cafes and boutiques of Bellenden Road. Peckham Rye Station is just eight minutes away and it’s 12 minutes to East Dulwich Station. You’re also a short walk from a number of parks, including Peckham Rye's 113 acres and Goose Green (both with much-loved playgrounds). East Dulwich's main high-street, delightful Lordship Lane, is also under 10 minutes by foot.
A neat walled front garden with tiled path fronts the house. From the hall, your through-reception is set to your left. The front room is over 14 feet by over 12 feet, and the second reception space is over 11 feet by over 10 feet. Tall French doors open out here to the side return area of the garden.
Follow the hall through for the large and double-aspect kitchen/dining room, which has smart floor tiling throughout. It extends over 19 feet, with large glazed modern double doors beyond the dining area onto the garden (which is in two main zones - one paved and one lawned).
On the half-landing, there is a double bedroom to the rear, of over 13 feet by 10 feet. Next door is a neat windowed shower room with contemporary fittings.
The high-ceilinged master bedroom sits at the front of the house, with bay and additional window. It’s 16 feet by over 14 and has stripped floors, custom-made closets to each alcove, and an attractive central fireplace.
Adjacent is another double bedroom (this time, carpeted) of over 11 feet by over 10 feet, with built-in wardrobe to the near alcove.
On the second floor, there is the fourth double bedroom (over 10 feet by over 9 feet) with feature fireplace, and next door is a slick sash-windowed bathroom with contemporary sanitary ware and fittings, plus large profile tiling.
Local schools include St John’s & St Clements, Bellenden Primary and The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust). The extremely popular Little Jungle nursery is a few doors down on Amott Road, and the Villa pre-prep school (ages 2 - 7) is also nearby.
The independent shopping/dining/drinking opportunities of Bellenden Road are a short stroll away. You needn’t go far to socialise in style! Local cafes and restaurants include The Begging Bowl, Pedler, Banh Banh, Miss Tapas, Ganapati, Peckham Bazaar and Artusi.
Local pubs include The Gowlett (which does great pizzas), The Montpelier, The Victoria Inn and The White Horse. In the warmer months, head to the trendy rooftop bars on Rye Lane.
Rye Lane is a good spot too for high street essentials, banks and big supermarkets, as well as Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex plus The Market Building. It’s all going on in SE15 and there’s even more to come - including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line.
