Viewings commence Saturday, 3 April 2021.
Characterful and flexible Victorian bay-fronted end of terrace townhouse of 1852 square feet, over three full floors, with five bedrooms (four generous doubles and one big single).
Find it just a three minute walk from Queens Road Peckham Station - for both regular and Overground rail services. Parking is unrestricted on the street.
You’ve got so many boxes ticked with this house: loads of square feet to play with (plus potential to extend to the rear), two entrances, side access, an independent utility room, and a sunny west-facing part-walled garden of circa 60 feet.
Up the front steps, open the original front door into the high-ceilinged hall. The huge double-reception room is on your left. Both rooms have pretty period fireplaces, ceiling roses and high skirting boards. The hero though is the big east-facing bay window with beautiful box-work. Double-doors provide the house’s first access point to the garden.
At the rear of this floor you’ve got the modern-in-style kitchen, with double-glazed window and two cute original picture windows too. Open shelving, recessed lighting and blue ceramic metro tiling are further welcome features.
Downstairs (with a second front door under the front steps) you’ve got two double bedrooms which sit under the reception rooms. Both are of a good size - over 16 feet by over 13 feet and over 12 feet by over 11 feet. The front bedroom is blessed with a big bay window, while the second has built-in alcove storage and an en suite shower.
At the end of the hall you’ve got the property’s windowed utility room (with plumbing of course), and beyond this is a handy downstairs w.c. plus back door onto the garden.
The garden is largely laid to lawn with shingle and paving nearest the house. Being west-facing you’ll enjoy loads of delightful afternoon sun.
Up to the first floor and first you’ve got the sash-windowed bathroom with twin sinks and an over bath shower. From the main landing, find two further large double bedrooms, and a large single - of over 9 feet by over 7 feet (or use it as a home office/dressing room).
The whole of SE15 is enjoying regeneration and will soon welcome an exciting linear park connecting Peckham’s two stations: The Peckham Coal Line. The QRP area has a restaurant/evening scene in its own right now; Kudu and Peckham Cellars have even picked up a Bib Gourmand each! Smoky Kudu cocktails are sensational and a Kudu tapas place opens soon as well. Well & Fed, Beer Rebellion, Mamma Dough and Blackbird Bakery are all popular and local.
QRP Station is your closest and two stops drops you to London Bridge. Further down the line, the Bakerloo line should be sliding open its doors - from nearby Old Kent Road - in 2029. Peckham Rye Station is a 17 minute walk.
Peckham's library and leisure centre are a 13 minute walk - here find the canal path through to Burgess Park (really popular with cyclists). Walk 15 minutes to Peckham’s high street: Rye Lane - for handy high street shopping plus fruit and veg stalls, alongside trendy destinations such as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building (and their respective rooftop bars). Bellenden Road, Blenheim Grove and Choumert Roads are also close for great eateries and drinkeries such as Artusi, The Montpelier, The Coal Rooms, Levan and Ganapati.
You’re also close to New Cross, for Goldsmiths University and Telegraph Hill’s pretty Victorian parks. Nunhead, Dulwich, Camberwell, Greenwich and Brixton are also close for more options. Nunhead has a great bakery and fishmonger.
Schools? Local primaries include Edmund Waller, Haberdashers' Aske's, John Donne and Kender. Nell Gwynn Nursery is also local.
