Choumert Road, Peckham Rye
Cracking three double bedroom bay-fronted Victorian terraced house - with obvious scope to extend up into the generous loft space, and out over the side-return.
Welcome features throughout the handsome home include sash windows, stripped floors and doors, multiple fireplaces, old school style radiators, and a cool decorative scheme. A part-walled landscaped garden (with established tropical planting) completes the package.
The location’s something to celebrate too! It’s a dishy, always-requested tree-lined residential Victorian SE15 street which intersects Bellenden Road (this house is situated on the upper slope). Locally, it’s known as the Champs-Élysées of Peckham!
Walk all of six minutes to Peckham Rye Station. You’re also very close to Bellenden Road, The Belham Primary School, Rye Lane and Warwick Gardens.
A neat walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement (ooh, we like the phormium here). A tiled path leads you to the porch area and original front door.
Open into the high-ceilinged hall and your two formal receptions rest to your right; these have been knocked through and have a period fireplace apiece, plus coving and ceiling rose detail. Painted timber-framed French doors deliver you from the second reception space to the shingled side-return area of the garden.
At the end of the hall you’ve a handy under-stairs cupboard to your left (perfect for coats, the vacuum and such), and the large double-aspect kitchen/diner is up ahead; this stretches over 19 feet and has an oversized glazed door at the foot of the room - which opens out onto the garden. The slick modern fitted kitchen units have solid oak worktops and trims. A bay window provides a top spot for your table and chairs.
Up the stairs to the half-landing and you’ll first find your (windowed) bathroom to your right. This is contemporary in style, with concealed plumbing and an over-bath shower. At the rear of the house is the first of the bedrooms - this one’s nearly 13 feet by over 9 feet and is double-aspect.
Up to the landing proper, and to your left is the second double bedroom of over 10 feet by 9. It has a built-in alcove closet and gorgeous feature fireplace.
Lastly, you’ve got your large master bedroom - of over 14 feet by over 11 feet; again with a period fireplace.
You are mere steps from independent shop, cafe and restaurant life. And Peckham’s rather a hot spot for socialising for all ages. On Bellenden Road we particularly love Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl. Rye Lane is a short stroll further for high street shops, banks and fruit and veg stalls, as well as Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, rooftop bars and other pop-ups.
If you can bring yourself to leave the postcode, Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is close for regular and Overground services, and East Dulwich Station is only a tad further (walk 12 minutes). Services to London Bridge and Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf) make the commute or evening or weekend adventures a walk in the park.
And if a walk in the park’s what you’re after… local green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park & Common and Ruskin Park. The Peckham Coal Line will soon be added to that list.
Wee ones? Local primaries include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust), Bellenden, St. John's & St Clement's (C of E) and Goose Green, and for secondaries you’ve got The Charter School East Dulwich.
The Villa Nursery (2-7) is also local and well-liked, and the Dulwich independent schools are only a short drive.
