Choumert Road, Peckham Rye
Cute as you like palm-fronted three bedroom Victorian half-house, with a downstairs bathroom and part-walled ‘city’ garden, on a best Peckham Rye tree-lined residential street that’s close to Bellenden Road and Peckham Rye Station (just one and four minutes by foot respectively).
Sitting just on the border of Holly Grove Conservation Area; the house is set over three floors, delivering three bedrooms and a modern (downstairs) bathroom, plus an open-plan reception/kitchen/dining room.
A neat, walled front garden sets you back from the street (where permit-parking has been recently introduced for residents). In the main front door and your front door is set to the right. You open straight into the reception room which is open-plan to the fitted kitchen - which has modern white units paired with wooden counters. Open-shelf detail is a welcome feature.
Through this room and you’ve got a little lobby where you’ll find the back door out to the low-maintenance garden. The windowed bathroom (a wise extension to the original house) has a simple white suite and over bath shower.
On the first floor you’ve got two double bedrooms (of over 13 feet by 10 feet, and 9 feet by over 8). As throughout, the decor is neat and white. The larger of the bedrooms (the one on the front) has built-in wardrobes. Up to the second floor and you’ll find a third double bedroom, with south-facing double-glazed window.
Lovely, leafy Choumert Road dissects Bellenden Road - you are but minutes from the many shops and restaurants in this buzzing, trendy area that’s thronging with young professionals and young families alike.
Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Miss Tapas, The Montpelier and The Victoria Inn - among other delights - are all at hand
Rye Lane is only a little further for high street shops, markets, banks, and Frank’s Cafe, Forza Wine, Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park.
If you can face leaving the neighbourhood, Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is close for regular and London Overground services (and East Dulwich Station is only a tad further, also Fare Zone 2). Services to London Bridge and Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf) make the commute or evening or weekend adventures embarrassingly easy.
Local green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common and Ruskin Park. The Peckham Coal Line will soon be added to that list (yippee!).
Local primary schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust), Bellenden, St. John's & St Clement's (C of E), Goose Green and Lyndhurst. The Villa Nursery (2-7) is also local and well-liked.
