Bushey Hill Road, Camberwell
Viewings from Saturday 25th June.
Charming and comfortable natural four bed, two bath, double-bay-fronted Victorian terrace of 1595 square feet (excluding the cellar and loft spaces). Treats include double-glazed timber sash windows, and a pro-landscaped part-walled ‘city’ garden.
This is one of our favourite streets in the area - lined with mature trees and varied-period housing stock, set between Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations (walk to these in 9 and 11 minutes). It’s a ‘Lyndhurst toast-rack’ street, running south from The South London Gallery, and north from Lyndhurst Grove (where you’ll find The Villa Nursery).
The curb appeal is strong with this one! A well-stocked front garden plus tiled path to a traditional porch please upon approach. In your front door and it’s a left into the stripped-floored double-reception, with large original doors connecting/dividing the rooms as desired.
The front room is over 14 feet by over 12 feet, and the rear room is over 12 feet by over 10 feet. Both have attractive fireplaces, plus coving and picture rail detail. Part-timber/part-glazed French doors open from the second reception to the side-return area of the garden.
Following the hall, the cellar is accessed to your right - a useful storage space. Beyond is a cupboard, and opposite this a handy and windowed downstairs w.c. Straight ahead and you’ve got a generous double-aspect kitchen/diner - which extends over 23 feet (more stripped floors here). Double doors open out to the garden: an east-facer, which gets great morning sun and has mature planting around its low-maintenance paving.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing, you’ve got a sash-windowed bathroom to your left, and a good double bedroom ahead - pale walls and leafy vistas from the sash window here.
From the main landing you’ve got another very respectable double bedroom (of over 12 feet by over 10 feet), and the large master bedroom (over 16 feet by over 14 feet), which has a bay and additional sash window, and takes the whole width of the house. Further blessings include another period fireplace (original to the house) and original coving and picture rail.
The second floor delivers the fourth double bedroom and the second sash-windowed bathroom. Both of the property's bathrooms have white suites and over bath showers.
What a spot! Leafy yet well-connected. Local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Brunswick and Ruskin Parks.
There are plenty of useful bus routes from Peckham Road, at the foot of your road, including the no. 436 (Paddington and Victoria), the no. 12 (Oxford Circus) and the no. 171 (Holborn).
Local eating and drinking establishments we would point you in the direction of include Theo's, The Camberwell Arms, Nandine, Good Neighbour, and The Crooked Well (SE5) and The Montpelier, Ganapati, Artusi, Miss Tapas, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Forza Wine, The Begging Bowl and Mr Bao (SE15).
When the weather's warm and the days are long, Rye Lane’s rooftop bars are the go-to destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane is also where you’ll find Peckham Plex Cinema, Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building and Copeland Park, plus handy high street shops, banks, markets, boutique gyms, and good street food.
Local cafes and such include Crane’s, FROG Bakery, Lumberjack, Petitou and Uvo. For luxury groceries or a good bottle, we like Grove Lane Deli, Gladwell’s, and The General Store,
Peckham and Camberwell both have good leisure centres with large lane pools, and The Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga Studio are also local, at the bottom of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
Schools nearby? These include Lyndhurst, Dog Kennel Hill, The Belham and Bellenden (primaries), and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School on Lyndhurst Grove (2-7).
