Brayards Road, Peckham
Neat two bed Victorian end of terrace - with side access - on a potential-laden plot; the large rear garden is over 50 feet and you've a wide side return. It’s located between three stations: Peckham Rye (walk 10 minutes), Nunhead (10) and Queens Road Peckham (eight). Though the house functions just fine as-is, it’s itching to be extended and remodelled to your liking and design. In current setup, and with very high ceilings, downstairs you have two independent reception rooms, and kitchen and bathroom. Upstairs are two generous double bedrooms. The house is double-glazed throughout and you have unrestricted on-street parking. Freehold.
A front garden sets you back from the pavement. Open and the first reception (10 feet by 10 feet) is off to your left. This is a sunny room with stripped original floorboards and white walls, and double doors open inwards, connecting you with the second reception room (which you can also get to from the hall), where stripped floors also feature. This room’s a natural dining room, and over 10 feet by nearly 14. Double doors open out onto the side return area of the garden.
On through and you'll find the simple kitchen with fitted wall and base units, and beyond this there is a lobby/utility area, a back door to the garden, and door to the bathroom. The bathroom has a white suite and window on the rear wall.
Up the stairs from the dining room and you’ll find the two bedrooms to front and rear. The master across the front has two windows and is over 13 feet by over 10, and the second is over 10 by over 10 with a window to garden views. Both bedrooms have pale carpets.
You’re positioned between three Fare Zone 2 stations, which provide you with Overground and Thameslink services as well as Southern and Southeastern trains. Rye Lane is close for buses into central London and to useful local town centres like Brixton and Lewisham.
What else is local? Central Nunhead has a busy community centre by AOC Architects (classes etc.) and some excellent independent staples: Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop, for example. Fine establishments to eat there include Four Hundred Rabbits, The Old Nun’s Head and Babette (all are on Nunhead Lane itself). Though Peckham Bazaar on nearby Consort Road is the most sizzling table in SE15, with pan-Balkan cuisine.
The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex and Peckham Levels (atop of which is Frank’s bar) are also a short walk from your door for the trendiest of eateries, drinkeries, exhibitions, pop-up markets and the like. On the horizon in this locale, we're excited by The Peckham Coal Line which has been crowdfunded by some excellent local folk.
The ‘triangle’ at the end of Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres is also awash with new places to eat, drink and hang out; Pedler, Mr Bao (Asian), Banh Banh (Vietnamese Street Food) and Voodoo Ray’s (pizza), Pizza Pickup (more pizza) being a handful. Bellenden Road, Choumert Road and Rye Lane provide more food and drink options (we especially like Artusi, Anderson's, the Begging Bowl and Ganapati) and Peckham Plex Cinema is a long-established favourite, committed to films for under a fiver. Camberwell, New Cross and Deptford are also close for other options.
Kids here or a twinkle in the eye? Local primaries include Edmund Waller and St Mary Magdalene C of E (both Ofsted-rated ‘Good’) and John Donne ('Outstanding'). Banana Moon Day Nursery on Machell Road is also close, or you are a short drive to The Villa Nursery on Lyndhurst Grove.
