Bellenden Road, Peckham Rye
Fine four bed Victorian mid-terrace townhouse - of 1308 square feet - over three floors, with two entrances and both bath and shower rooms. Pleasingly, the house is accompanied by a well-stocked sunny garden (south-easterly in orientation); with pro-landscaping, and which exceeds 80 feet.
This is one of Peckham Rye's most highly-favoured streets, close to The Belham Primary School, the shopping section of Bellenden Road, and Warwick Gardens. You’re just a six minute walk from Peckham Rye Station for Fare Zone 2 train travel.
Entering at the bottom of the house - under the front steps, you first have a porch area, then you open into the generous double-aspect through-reception, which stretches over 22 feet (by over 15 feet). Original wooden floors have been painted white. An open fire keeps things cosy on colder nights; the second breast has a rare 1900s cast iron stove. At the foot of the room, timber-framed French doors deliver you to the side return area of the big garden.
The double-aspect kitchen lies at the rear of the house and has the second exit to the garden. Shaker-style units impress, and these are teamed with a ceramic Butler sink and wooden counters. The garden’s a pretty zoned one with raised deck/sun terrace at the foot.
Up to the upper ground floor and you’ve got two neat and white double bedrooms to front and rear - of over 12 feet by over 11 feet, and over 11 feet by nearly 10. The rear bedroom has a built-in alcove closet, and both rooms have sash windows.
This floor is completed with a full bathroom with traditional style sanitary ware including a free-standing roll-top bath which has been painted in a F&B hue.
Up to the top floor and you’ve got your large master bedroom across the front of the whole terrace (over 15 feet). You've got twin sash windows, painted floors, a feature fireplace and a Farrow & Ball Lotus papered wall in here. Adjacent is the fourth and final bedroom (currently enjoyed as a home office and music studio) - of over 11 feet by nearly 10. An alcove closet and sash window to garden views feature here.
What a seriously super spot to call home. Peckham Rye station is a short walk for regular and Overground services and therefore an easy commute to the City, West End and Canary Wharf.
Bustling with 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 Peckham Springs, Brick Brewery, Forza Wine, The Bussey Building, Peckham Levels, and in summer - Frank's hipster-tastic rooftop bar. With great local pubs (The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier and The Prince Albert), schools and nurseries (The Belham and The Villa to name a couple), 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.
