Anstey Road, Peckham Rye
Fine four bed, two bath, bay-fronted Victorian terrace with a sunny west facing garden, on a tree-lined residential street that's just a six minute walk from Peckham Rye Station and Bellenden Road. The handsome home delivers 1383 square feet over three floors, and has been tastefully extended both up and out. Permit-parking is on-street for residents.
Move-in-ready; the property's been sensitively renovated to a really high standard. In your front door and the double reception is on your right, extending over 24 feet. Welcome features include stripped floors and bespoke shutters to the windows and door. And you’ve got generous custom-made alcove storage (shelves and cupboards) in the front reception space.
At the foot of the hall, open the door here to reveal your swish, double-aspect kitchen/dining room, of over 18 feet by over 9 feet. Twin skylights sit over the dining space, and double-glazed doors fold all the way open to the low-maintenance (paved and lawned) garden with modern-style fencing. Pleasingly, the garden has a spire-view, and faces west with a twist of south - you’ll enjoy loads of sun when it’s out!
The fitted kitchen is a classy timeless Shaker-style number (Harvey Jones), in navy, with a big Butler sink and slick stone counters.
Up to the first floor, from the half-landing you’ve got a rather luxury full bathroom, with both a cast-iron roll-top bath (painted in F&B’s Railings) and an independent walk-in shower. Fittings are all traditional in style, and the beautiful Neptune sink unit is topped with marble, natch.
From the landing proper, the first double bedroom is set to your left. It’s over 10 feet each way and has stripped boards to the floor. The deep-green master bedroom’s next door; this takes the width of the house - it’s over 15 feet by over 11 feet. Tall and deep built-in closets grace each alcove. Old school style radiators sit under the room’s two sash windows, and you’ve got stained floorboards underfoot.
Up to the second floor and you’ll first find a third double bedroom (of over 10 feet by over 9 feet), and then finally, the fourth bedroom - with a large skylight window plus Juliet balcony to garden vistas. The room’s over 17 feet by over 10 feet, with useful accessible eaves storage. Next door is an immaculate shower room (with skylight), in a contemporary style. Both of the top bedrooms have pale carpets and recessed lighting.
Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is a short walk for regular and Overground services.
Green space? Warwick Gardens is close, and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres and Goose Green are closer still.
The independent shopping, dining and drinking opportunities of Bellenden Road are a short stroll away; you needn’t leave the neighbourhood of the evening or weekend! It’s a wonderful social hub. Local lauded restaurants include The Begging Bowl, Levan, Larry’s, Forza Wine (rooftop!), Pedler, Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Ganapati and Artusi. Local pubs include The Montpelier, The Gowlett, The Victoria Inn and The White Horse.
Recently-pedestrianised Rye Lane is close for high street essentials, banks and supermarkets, as well as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex. It’s all going on in SE15 (as recent press coverage continues to attest!) - and there’s even more to come, including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
East Dulwich is a short stroll too - for delights such as Terroirs, Franklin's, William Rose and Chener Books. North Cross Road's foodie Saturday market is a winner too. A Picturehouse cinema and M&S Food Hall are fairly recent additions to The Lane.
Local primary schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust), Bellenden, and St John’s & St Clement’s. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School (for little ones aged 2-7) and Little Jungle Nursery are also close.
