Bellenden Road, Peckham Rye
Five double bedroom modernised Victorian house over three full floors, of 1573 square feet (excluding the cellar and loft spaces). Further to this, you have a gloriously-sunny south-facing garden of 70 feet, and obvious potential to extend to the rear.
Walk just eight minutes to Peckham Rye Station, and 10 to East Dulwich Station (both are Fare Zone 2).
The independent-shopping section of Bellenden Road, and The Belham, Bellenden and St John’s & St Clements primaries are all a short walk. Warwick Gardens is your local park. SE22's Lordship Lane and Grove Vale are close too.
A neat and hedged front garden make a smart welcome. In your front door and you’ve got the stripped-floored double-reception to your right - extending 25 feet. Welcome features here include a big bay window, a wood-burner, a modern vertical radiator, and a (working, gas) fireplace too.
A panel-glazed door leads from here to a natural dining space (formerly the side return area). Access the kitchen here or from the hall. The kitchen - of 17 feet by 10 - has attractive green wall and base units paired with wooden counters. A sash window looks out to long garden views. Large profile floor tiling runs through both back rooms.
Double doors open out to the paved area of the garden. Beyond is a shingled area (ideal for al fresco entertaining) then a smart lawn with established plants and birches. The garden is big enough to put in a home studio/office or extend from the house onto - or both! - you’d still have loads of outside space.
Up to the first floor and you’ll first find the bathroom with smart white sanitary ware and both (free-standing) bath and independent shower. Twin-sinks are a pleasing feature, and the main (sash) window delivers garden vistas. As throughout the house, you’ve got white walls and recessed lighting.
From the landing, the first bedroom to your left is over 11 feet by over 10, with a built-in alcove wardrobe. The natural master bedroom sits to the front of the house with a big bay window as downstairs, plus another sash. Built-in wardrobes are in each alcove.
Up to the second floor and you’ve got a double bedroom to the rear - of over 10 feet each way. The tour is complete with another double of over 11 feet by over 10 feet, and finally another oversized double (to the front of the house) of over 16 feet by 11 feet, with three sash windows.
What a seriously super spot to call home. Peckham Rye Station is a short walk for regular and Overground services; therefore you’ve an easy commute to the City, West End and Canary Wharf.
Rich in independent shops, restaurants and coffee shops, you needn’t leave your nearest network of streets of a weekend: The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, Artusi and Levan all come highly recommended. For an artisan loaf or coffee, pop down to The General Store (this place is also a bit of a local celeb haunt!).
You're also close to Brick Brewery, Forza Wine (with lift to floor four), The Bussey Building, Peckham Levels, and in summer - Frank's hipster-tastic rooftop bar.
East Dulwich is also a short walk - Lordship Lane and Grove Vale have great independent shops, restaurants and cafes. And North Cross Road puts on a delightful foodie market every Saturday. Local Dulwich schools include Goose Green (primary), and the new Charter School East Dulwich (secondary).
With great local pubs (The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier and The Prince Albert), schools and nurseries, Peckham's already on the map, but there's even more to come! Including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station, and The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
