Choumert Mews, Peckham Rye
Make the live/work dream a reality by buying this brilliant, rarely-available proposition in a quiet, secure gated mews, mere metres from all things Peckham Rye and Bellenden Road. The mews – a little community in itself – is tucked away behind gates behind Choumert Road, making it exceptionally and surprisingly calm for such a connected locale. The mews is also lit at night.
Developed in 2000, the original buildings in the mews date back to the thirties/forties. This one offers up 1353 square feet and loads of light, character and flexibility for the live/worker.
The property is currently arranged with generous work space (concrete floors here) to the ground floor (plus kitchen and w.c.), and a huge bedroom to the entire first floor. The building is amazingly-bright owing to its south-facing orientation and huge windows and doors (two wonderful warehouse windows on the first floor are 5ft by 5ft, for example). Walk just three minutes to Peckham Rye Station. Freehold.
There are two entrances on the ground floor – one directly into the downstairs space, and another into a lobby which connects you with the w.c. and stairwell up to the first floor. Beginning with the downstairs space: it’s 770 square feet, with a relaxed kitchen area, and big built-in storage cupboards to the far right hand corner. Roof lights throw in more light, making the space ideal for all manner of studio work.
The first floor is another large space; this time of 583 square feet. Exposed beams and steel work plus wooden floor boards are all welcome features. If you so desired, you could create an independent self-contained New York loft-style apartment up here! It’s wonderfully bright with huge south-facing windows and French doors and Juliet balcony.
A genuinely special location: tucked away and private, yet so central and connected. Peckham Rye Station with Overground and regular services is just a three minute walk. Buses are easily grabbed too, on nearby Rye Lane (where you’ll also find banks and handy high street shopping, as well as Peckham Plex Cinema and a growing number of very cool eateries and drinkeries that include the likes of Peckham Levels, The Market Building, and Taco Queen).
Your local pubs are The Montpelier and The Vic(toria Inn). Choumert and Bellenden Roads with their cafes, bars and independent shops are steps away. Petitou, Anderson’s and Small White Elephant are your local cafes. Miss Tapas, Artusi, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl are all close for delicious dining. Blenheim Grove is also close for Il Giardino, Levan, The Coal Rooms and Honest Burger among others!
Local shops we love are Review book store, Flock and Herd butchery and The General Store. Peckham Rye Park and Common is a ten minute walk away. Warwick Gardens is even closer.
