Chadwick Road, Peckham Rye
We can’t get enough of sunny south-facing gardens (and there simply aren’t enough of them!); find this low-maintenance one attached to a beautifully-presented two bed bay-fronted Victorian terrace with a separate study.
Welcome features throughout the property include stripped floor boards, stripped doors, sash windows, and bespoke shutters to the front windows. We like the wide side return too (an obvious extension project once-in if you fancied it).
The lovely home rests on one of Peckham Rye’s principal tree-lined streets within Holly Grove Conservation Area, just a few minutes by foot from Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2), Warwick Gardens, Bellenden Road and Rye Lane. Permit-parking is on-street.
From the hall, it’s a right into the double-reception room which stretches over 24 feet. Catch pleasing sight of the garden from the second reception’s sash window. Alcove shelving and a period fireplace further impress.
At the foot of the hall you’ve got your double-aspect kitchen/diner (running over 16 feet) with a generous bank of modern fitted gloss-white units, and a tiled floor. At the foot of the room, painted timber-framed French doors open out to your sun trap status garden. This is decked and paved on two levels, with well-established borders and clever built-in timber seating (which incorporates storage for garden bits/cushions).
Up the stairs and you’ll first reach a neat study space with sash window and ceiling-high built-in cupboards/utility to the opposite wall.
Beyond, you’ve got a classy bathroom with traditionally-styled bathroom suite, over bath shower, on-trend brick-style tiling and recessed lighting.
From the main landing find your twin-sashed master bedroom to the front of the house; it’s over 13 feet by over 11 feet. Adjacent is a second double (over 11 feet by over 8 feet) with big sash window 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).
Good shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants surround the house. We really like Petitou (for coffee and people-watching) and Review (for a fine read plus a nice chat with Katia). Flock & Herd is a great local butcher too, and The General Store has treats galore!
Local restaurants include some of the tastiest and freshest offerings in London. Some of our favourites are The Begging Bowl, Artusi, Tonkotsu, Peckham Bazaar, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Ganapati, Pedler, Mr Bao and Miss Tapas. Local pubs include The Montpelier, The Prince Albert and The Victoria Inn.
Trendy Peckham Levels, The Market Building, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex are also a brief stroll; Rye Lane (currently mainly-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, Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres and Goose Green. For more options, Burgess, Ruskin and even Brockwell Parks aren’t far.
