Choumert Road, Peckham Rye
Show-stopping newly refurbished three double bedroom conversion apartment of 1421 square feet (excluding eaves storage space) within a wider than average Victorian terrace, with a generous private landscaped garden which is accessed by stairs from the utility room. Share of Freehold.
Having been stripped back to brick, the property has been completely remodelled, extended and refurbished to an impeccable standard.
The immaculate property is very well-placed. You're on a pretty residential tree-lined street, just seven minutes from Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2). Bellenden Road is at your feet in three.
A neat front garden sets you back from the pavement. There’s a shared main door and smart hall. In your own front door and up the stairs and you’ll find a generous hall leading to a double bedroom (over 10 feet by over 11 feet) with vaulted ceiling and beautiful windowed bathroom, with both free-standing cast iron bath and independent shower. The high-end fittings are traditional in style.
A huge triple-sashed south-facing reception room (spanning over 24 feet) delivers plenty of light and space for zoning living and dining areas. The beautifully-laid parquet floor is impressive and runs through the kitchen and dedicated utility spaces too.
The Shaker-style kitchen boasts a Rangemaster oven, discreet ducted extractor, 4 in 1 boiling tap along with generous storage. There is additionally a wine fridge and breakfast station. The utility room features a bespoke laundry cupboard with integrated dolly maid and radiator. Dover white natural quartz counters are throughout including the delightful breakfast bar/peninsular unit.
The garden features a former stables with a walled seating area, patio dining and BBQ areas. All new fencing was recently installed and the bricks used for landscaping and path recycled from the stables. A small section of a former road is also a feature. Further, planning is in place for a summer house (of 152 square feet).
Up the stairs again and you’ll find your second soft-carpeted bedroom (of over 15 feet by 10 feet) which is currently enjoyed as a lavish dressing room, complete with built-in wardrobes and dressing table.
Finally at the top of the house, open double doors to reveal your massive master suite with (windowed) en suite luxury shower room. The bedroom was designed for maximum light and features three Veluxes (all with duo blackout blinds), one of which opens to a balcony. The room is finished with parquet flooring. Fitted storage features here, and you have loads of accessible eaves storage as well: 157 square feet/15 square metres.
The shower room is finished with contemporary fittings and marble detail. Additionally there is a study area on this floor.
There is integrated air conditioning servicing both the reception room and master bedroom. Water softener runs throughout. All new electrics and plumbing along with all new wooden sash double glazed windows. All the floors on the first floor have been re-laid flat on top of acoustic subflooring and acoustic insulation. The bathrooms have under floor heating and there is high speed fibre broadband.
Choumert Road cuts through Bellenden Road; you are moments from some of the most lauded restaurants south of the river. We particularly like Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati. And popular shops on Bellenden Road include Flock & Herd butchery, The General Store and Review bookstore.
Other local streets Blenheim Grove, Choumert Road (the lower section) and Rye Lane provide plenty of additional options (and don’t miss The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex just off Rye Lane).
Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) is a short stroll for main line and Overground services. Or walk 10 minutes to East Dulwich Station. Services to London Bridge and Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canada Water (for Canary Wharf) make work or pleasure journeys a doddle.
Local green spaces? These include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common (grade II listed and with Green Flag status too) and Ruskin Park. The Peckham Coal Line will hopefully soon be added to that list!
Local and highly-regarded primary schools include The Belham, Bellenden, St. John's & St Clement's (C of E) and Goose Green. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. (2-7) is also local and well-liked, and the Dulwich schools are but a short drive away.
