Bellenden Road, Peckham Rye
Well-placed and wonderful two double bedroom upper maisonette with a generous and sunny roof terrace. The recent subject of a complete and careful renovation; you’ve got many welcome decisions and features - including exposed brick detail, a modern kitchen and bathroom, new slimline radiators and recessed lighting, alongside Victorian features such as sash windows and period fireplaces.
You've also got your own front door and a Freehold-share, and the property’s located in a tall and handsome Victorian building which has a smart new independent hair salon (Stuart Ross) situated at ground floor level.
This is one of the Peckham Rye’s area's best streets: Bellenden Road has handsome late-C19th homes (in the main) of varying styles and sizes, with an independent high street/village-style area - popular with locals and visitors alike.
In your own front door, take your stairs up and arrive in the large reception room area, with two windows to the street vistas. Wooden floors are both practical and good-looking. These flow through to the kitchen area, which is open-plan, with a generous bar area separating the two spaces. The length of the combined spaces is over 24 feet and a sash window over the sink looks out to your private decked terrace. You have direct access to this from your glazed back door.
Take the stairs up to the second floor and your master bedroom rests to the front of the building; it’s 15 feet by over 12. Painted floor boards, neutral walls and a feature fireplace all impress here.
Next door is the second double bedroom of 10 feet by over 9, with built-in closets to both alcoves plus high-set cupboards on the opposite wall. A sash-windowed contemporary shower room (with large profile tiling and open shelving) completes the floor and indeed, tour.
Locations don't get more much better… Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2, and on the London Overground network) is a tree-lined five minute walk, and some of our favourite places on your doorstep include Review book shop, The General Store, Flock & Herd butcher, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, Artusi, Made of Dough, Petitou, Levan and Melange.
Nearby Rye Lane also has much to recommend it: The Bussey Building & Copeland Park, Peckham Levels, and high street shops, banks, staples and street market stalls.
Central Camberwell is also close for The South London Gallery and more (The Camberwell Arms is tough to beat for grub and grog).
Local pubs to you include The White Horse, The Montpelier, The Victoria Inn, The Prince Albert and The Gowlett.
Peckham's already ‘made it’ - but there's even more to come! Including ever-gentrifying Rye Lane (the fairly new Market Building an example), the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station, and The Peckham Coal Line.
Warwick Gardens is your nearest green space, and Peckham Rye Park and Common isn't far by foot. Goose Green, Ruskin, Brunswick, Burgess and Dulwich Parks are also worthy of weekend wanders. Lettsom Gardens up the road is also a good ‘secret’ one to find - locals can get a key for a small fee.
