Astbury Road, Peckham
Delightful three-floored and three-bedroomed Victorian terraced house of circa 1200 square feet, on a pretty street that’s close to Queen’s Road Peckham Station (a four minute walk) for regular and Overground rail services.
You’re also just a 15 minute walk from Nunhead Station and Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2), Nunhead’s high street area, and Rye Lane.
A neat and walled private courtyard garden is accessed via double doors from the kitchen/diner; this faces east with a big twist of south. Parking is unrestricted on-street. Freehold.
A neat walled garden sets you back from the pavement. Open the front door and you’re welcomed by a smart tiled floor and lovely high ceilings. The double-reception rests to your left, with beautiful herringbone flooring, and stretching over 24 feet to part-glazed French doors. In the front reception area you’ve got a big bay window with bespoke windows shutters, a central fireplace, and generous custom-made alcove shelving plus under-TV cupboard.
Access the smart tiled kitchen from the second reception or hall (if entering from the hall you’ll note the handy under stairs cupboard for coats and such). Enjoy under floor heating, recessed ceiling lights, industrial-framed French doors and window, and a big roof light. Timeless shaker-style fitted wall and base units are in navy, and these are teamed with brick-style ceramic wall tiles and slick stone counters. Dishwasher and washing machine are integrated. The room’s over 13 feet by over 11 feet.
Up the stairs and to your right is a larger than average bathroom with contemporary white sanitary ware, an over bath shower (with oversized shower head) and on-trend monochrome fittings. Adjacent is a generous carpeted master bedroom of 15 feet by over 11 feet. A big bank of closets runs down one whole wall, and you also have an immaculate shower room with space-sensitive sliding door.
Up to the second floor and you’ll find your two further double bedrooms - of over 14 feet by over 11 feet, and over 11 feet by 9 feet. Both are carpeted and the rear bedroom has window shutters to the double-glazed sash. Loft storage is accessible from the landing space.
The Blackbird Bakery - in one of the arches by the station - is a popular spot for coffee, cake and pizza nights. Mamma Dough, Peckham Cellars, Well & Fed and Beer Rebellion are also popular (all of a few minutes away on foot), as are Kudu and at Smoky Kudu - the latter’s a dreamy cocktail bar. And don't miss Pedler, for an excellent brunch.
Bellenden Road and Rye Lane offer up more options (we highly-rate Ganapati, Levan, Artusi and The Begging Bowl), and Peckham Bazaar is nearby on Consort Road - for beautiful pan-Balkan cooking and an excellent wine list.
You’re a short walk from Peckham Library and leisure centre plus canal path through Burgess Park, and you’re also close to New Cross - for Goldsmiths University, Curzon cinema, contemporary art gallery (Goldsmiths CCA), and Telegraph Hill’s pretty Victorian parks. The Peckham Coal Line is a thrilling, crowdfunded project that’ll link Peckham’s two stations with a linear park.
Nunhead, Dulwich, Camberwell, Greenwich and Brixton are also close for markets, parks, and more places to eat and drink.
Kids, or thinking of? Local nursery and primary provision includes The Villa, Nell Gwynn, Kender and Edmund Waller.
