Bushey Hill Road, Camberwell
1392 square feet of four bed, two bath late-thirties terraced home which incorporates a classy master suite to the top of the house, and which has a west (with a twist of south) facing garden of over 30 feet; with doors directly out here from your generous open-plan kitchen/reception. Permit-parking is available on-street.
This is a favoured tree-lined street in the area; set between the centres of Peckham and Camberwell, very close to Peckham Rye and Denmark Hill stations (walk 10-12 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. Bellenden Road and central Camberwell are both close.
A neat front garden sets you back from the street. Open into a bright and larger-than-most entrance hall. On through and you’ll find a huge family/entertaining space with pleasing extension (which was completed back in 2007).
The fitted kitchen’s on-trend with navy units in a timeless Shaker-style, teamed with stone counters, metro-tiling, and a deep ceramic Butler sink.
The kitchen’s open-plan to your second reception; the first reception is also open to the second, and has a square bay window (with the original windows) and wood-burning stove. It all flows together beautifully, with solid oak flooring underfoot. Folding timber-framed wall-wide doors open to the decked area of the garden. Beyond this you have lawn space.
On the first floor a large double and large single bedroom sit to the front (these are over 14 feet by over 10 feet, and over 9 feet by over 7). There's another large double bedroom with inbuilt storage and green views at the rear - of over 14 feet by over 10. The main family bathroom with white suite, twin windows, and overhead shower sits to the rear of the house.
The loft conversion has been seamlessly done. Ascend and open the door to your master suite which is the size of two rooms – stretching to 21ft. Deftly designed; tucked around the corner you have an immaculate shower room with w.c. and basin. Next to the bed area is a generous walk-in closet (there's further eaves storage beyond the bedroom area too).
You’re on the Peckham/Camberwell border here so can enjoy both. Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye stations (both on the London Overground network) are each a 10-12 minute walk. The walk to Peckham Rye station is especially pleasant as you can cut through Warwick Gardens - local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Ruskin Park.
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 encourage you in the direction of include Theo's, The Camberwell Arms, Good Neighbour, and The Crooked Well (SE5) and The Montpelier, Ganapati, Artusi, Miss Tapas, Levan and The Begging Bowl (SE15).
In the warm months with longer days, Rye Lane’s rooftop bars are the go-to destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane is also where you’ll find Peckham Levels and the Bussey. Cafes? We like Daily Goods, Lumberjack and The Pigeon Hole.
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 foot of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
Schools? Your locals include Lyndhurst, Dog Kennel Hill, The Belham and Bellenden (primaries), and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School on Lyndhurst Grove (2-7).
