Choumert Road, Peckham Rye
Offering way more than your average terrace, this wide Victorian home with thoughtful and generous extensions both out and up measures in at some 2103 square feet. Over three floors you have five double bedrooms, two bathrooms (plus downstairs w.c.), a double-reception, and a huge kitchen/dining/family room that’s over 20 feet by over 18, onto the large garden that stretches well over 60 feet. Welcome features are too many to mention but briefly include period fireplaces, old school style radiators, sash windows, stripped floors, and high-end fittings to the kitchen and bathrooms. It’s ready to wear! Parking is unrestricted, on-street. Walk 7 minutes for Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) and Bellenden Road is yours in 3. Freehold.
A neat front garden sets you back from the pavement. From the hall on your right is the first wooden-floored, bay-fronted reception room that has picture rail, coving and ceiling rose detail, smart shutters to the windows, and a working fireplace with marble surround, plus granite hearth. It’s over 14 feet by over 14 feet. The second reception is adjacent and ‘through’ in style. This one’s 12 feet by 12 feet. Another fireplace here impresses, plus built-in storage to both alcoves. Access the huge rear room here or from the hallway (where a neat w.c. is fitted in under stairs position). The former side return area is a wonderful and natural dining area and is glazed overhead for maximum light. It’s such a great room you may not use the others! The foot of the room has a huge window and door that opens out onto the large garden that has both paved and lawn areas. The fitted kitchen, including large island, is slick and timeless in style, with loads of storage. Stone worktops finish it all off nicely.
Up to the first floor and the master bedroom spans the width of the house (it’s over 18 feet by over 11 feet). Another fireplace in here and not one but three sash windows onto pretty street views. Next door is a second double bedroom of 12 feet by nearly 12. To the rear of the house, find another double bedroom (again, fireplace, tick!) and a white-tiled bathroom that sits next door, with separate w.c.
Up again and another double bedroom or lavish home office sits to the rear of the house, with sliding door. Next door is a stylish shower room. Up a few more stairs for the fifth and final bedroom with window onto garden views plus Velux, and a handy store next door which kids can enjoy entering via a port hole window!
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 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). Small White Elephant is a newer cafe offering down the road. Firm established cafe-favourites are Anderson’s and Petitou. Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) is a short stroll for main line and ‘ginger line’ 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.
