Chadwick Road, Peckham Rye
Offers in excess of £1,000,000.
Beautifully presented two bed Victorian terraced house of 1183 square feet, which incorporates an architect-designed glazed rear extension (with full folding glazed doors to your sunny, paved garden), and a loft room too. Permit parking is on-street for residents.
The optimised and characterful home is found on one of the Peckham Rye area's principal tree-lined streets within Holly Grove Conservation Area, all of a few minutes by foot from Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2), Warwick Gardens, Bellenden Road and Rye Lane.
A walled front garden sets you back from the pavement. In your front door and your through-reception is to your right of the hall. The front room is over 11 feet each way and has a working gas fireplace, plus delightful original stripped pine shutters to the sash window (the owners have recently installed double-glazing here and in the bedrooms). Stripped wooden floors continue from the hall. The second reception space has custom-made storage to the furthest alcove, and a neat downstairs w.c. is set opposite this.
Your large kitchen/dining room is accessed either from the hall or from the reception space. It’s over 17 feet by over 14 feet with underfloor heating and neat fitted gloss units. It’s a pleasingly-bright space for everything from daily family life to entertaining a crowd. Views of the mature garden and pergola further impress. The garden's well-stocked, really private, and extends over 26 feet, with recently installed drip-irrigation.
Upstairs and from the half-landing you’ve got a charming bathroom with T&G detail, under-basin storage, a traditional free-standing bath, and an independent shower. A trio of double-glazed windows (to garden views) and a further skylight keep matters bright.
From the landing proper you’ve first got a double bedroom of 11 feet by nearly 10 feet, with built-in alcove closet. The generous master bedroom lies across the front of the house - it’s over 11 feet by nearly 15. Both rooms have pale carpets and pretty feature fireplaces (which are original to the house).
Take the stairs up to the second floor for a useful loft room with two skylight windows set on the rear roof slope, and a pale carpet again. Sliding doors on both of the long walls reveal excellent accessible eaves storage.
