Choumert Road, Peckham Rye
Viewings from Saturday, 9 January 2021.
Delightful Victorian Freehold terrace - on one of Peckham Rye’s best streets - with three double bedrooms and an independent study, on three floors and over 1400 square feet.
The house incorporates a well-delivered loft conversion plus an extension beyond the kitchen on the ground floor; which provides a third reception space onto the part-walled garden.
The winning location is a pretty, quiet tree-lined residential SE15 street which intersects Bellenden Road (this house being on the upper slope). Locally, it’s known as the Champs-Élysées of Peckham! Here, residents bask in the swift connectivity to central London (walk seven minutes to Peckham Rye Station) paired with an easy village-feel. The shops of Bellenden Road and The Belham Primary are mere metres away.
There’s a neat front garden setting you back from the pavement. In the front door and right of the hall, you have the srtipped-floored double-reception with beautiful fireplaces and granite hearths to each room. Built-in alcove shelving is another plus. The big south-facing bay window has bespoke shutters to its lower panes. Double-glazed double doors open from the second reception space onto the side return area of the garden.
At the foot of the hall you’ll find the kitchen (attractively and timelessly fitted with Shaker-style units and solid wood counters) which runs through to the dining room. In its entirety the room stretches over 22 feet and a tiled floor ties the rooms nicely. Timber-framed folding doors release one to the decked area of the garden - beyond which you have lawn and borders.
Up to the half landing and first find your study with a skylight window. Beyond this is the main and windowed bathroom - with a neat white suite and over bath shower.
From the landing a pleasing master bedroom takes the width of the house - it’s over 16 feet by over 11. Adjacent is the second double bedroom - of over 11 feet by over 10. Both of these bedrooms have their original (feature) fireplaces, recessed lighting and pale carpets.
Up to the top of the house for the finale: the established loft suite with en suite shower room and accessible eaves storage, plus timber-framed folding glazed doors onto your Juliet balcony and garden vistas. You’ve got an additional skylight window in the bedroom too.
You are but minutes from independent cafe and restaurant life. Peckham’s a bit of a hot spot for socialising, and at any age. On Bellenden Road we love Anderson’s, Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl.
Rye Lane is a short stroll further for high street shops, markets and banks as well as Peckham Levels, the Bussey Building, the Market Building, rooftop bars and other pop-ups. East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane is close for further options and Picturehouse Cinema.
If you can face leaving your immediate locale, Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is close for regular and Overground services, and East Dulwich Station is only a bit further (all of 12 minutes). Services to London Bridge and Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canada Water - for Canary Wharf - make the commute or evening or weekend excursions a doddle.
Local green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park & Common and Ruskin Park. The Peckham Coal Line will hopefully soon be added to that list - early works commencing 2021!
Local primary schools 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 - The Charter School East Dulwich is close. The Villa Nursery (2-7) is also local and well-liked, and the Dulwich independent schools are but a short drive away.
