Chadwick Road, Peckham Rye
Utterly charming two bed, two reception Victorian Freehold terrace of 935 square feet, complete with a sunny low-maintenance south-facing garden and an upstairs bathroom.
Find the handsome home on one of Peckham Rye’s principal tree-lined streets within Holly Grove Conservation Area, putting you mere strides from Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2), Warwick Gardens, Bellenden Road and Rye Lane.
Wonderful welcome features include original stripped floors, sash windows, period fireplaces and built-in storage. There’s obvious side-return extension potential too; you could do as many of the neighbours have done and push sideways into the property’s (wider than average) side return. Permit-parking is on street for residents.
A neat walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement. From the hall, it’s a right into the first reception room of nearly 13 feet by over 10 with fireplace, coving, painted box shutters (swoon!) to the large sash window, and an alcove cupboard.
A second reception is next door (of 11 feet by over 10) with painted storage cupboards to both alcoves, and another handsome fireplace, plus sash window onto the side return. If you preferred, either of these independent reception rooms could be used as a third or guest bedroom. Or home office or hobby room.
The eat-in kitchen stretches nearly 15 feet and is set at the rear of the house. You’ve got a bright southerly orientation, and large timber-framed glazed French doors onto the paved and shingled garden.
There’s an additional access from the kitchen to the garden via a back door onto the side return area.
The fitted kitchen’s a generous and timeless one, accompanied by solid oak counters, slick, stainless steel handles and recessed lighting. Ceramic floor tiles are smile-bringers too.
Up to the half landing and you’ll find the property’s full bathroom (again with a southerly orientation). It’s a splendid size with a white traditional-style suite, and both bath and independent shower.
The two double bedrooms are off the main landing. The master bedroom takes the width of the terrace (over 16 feet by over 10) and has two sash windows to leafy street vistas. The second double is adjacent (11 feet by over 10) with big bespoke built-in closets to each alcove, and a single sash to garden views.
Getting around? Walk three minutes to Peckham Rye Station for Overground and regular train services. City-bound buses are also local on nearby Rye Lane (cut through Choumert Grove Car Park for your easiest route here).
Shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants are all within easy reach. We like Petitou for coffee and people-watching. Local restaurants include some of the tastiest offerings in London. Check out The Begging Bowl, Artusi, Peckham Bazaar, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Ganapati, Pedler, Mr Bao and Miss Tapas, for starters (and the rest!). Local pubs include The Montpelier and The Victoria Inn.
Independent shops are the order of the day on Bellenden Road, examples are Flock and Herd butchery, Review bookstore and The General Store. Melange on Maxted Road is a hot tip too (a chocolate shop!).
Trendy Peckham Levels, The Market Building, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex are a small stroll; Rye Lane (currently pedestrianised) also has fruit and veg stalls and handy high street shops, banks and supermarkets.
For more options, central Camberwell and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane are close.
Local schools? Include The Belham (run by Dulwich Educational Trust) and Bellenden, and also The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. on Lyndhurst Grove.
Your closest green spaces are Warwick Gardens and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres.
