Copleston Road, Peckham Rye
Well-kept and flexible bay-fronted Victorian home of 1812 square feet over four floors; inclusive of the generous converted loft room. A delightful east-facing garden of circa 50 feet seals the deal.
Find the house on a popular tree-lined residential street which sits at the top of Choumert Road - putting you within a 10 minute walk of both Peckham Rye and East Dulwich stations (both Fare Zone 2, and Peckham Rye is on the London Overground network).
Permit-parking for residents has recently been introduced on this and nearby streets.
This property is not short of rooms, and many set-ups can be enjoyed. There’s also obvious potential to open things up and extend at the back should you fancy that.
It’s up a few steps to the front door. First on your left of the high-ceilinged hall is a big reception room which is currently utilised as a sunny dining room. It’s over 14 feet by over 11 feet, with big bay west-facing window. This room’s open to the modern fitted kitchen which has Shaker-style wall and base units paired with oak counters, recessed lighting, and a big sash window to garden views.
At the end of the hall you’ve got an obvious home office of hobby room. It would also work well as a guest bedroom.
On the lower ground floor you’ve got a big and bright bay-fronted oak-floored reception room (a natural lounge) taking the width of the terrace; it’s over 14 feet each way and has a period fireplace (which is in working order) and built-in alcove storage. Adjacent is a generous double bedroom of 12 feet by over 9 feet, with a stripped pine alcove closet.
Follow the hall through and you’ve got your back door to your left, then a windowed shower room/utility room straight ahead, set to the rear of the building.
Up to the first floor and you’ll first find the property’s main bathroom (a neat modern white one with over bath shower), and two double bedrooms; these are over 12 feet by over 9 feet, and over 15 feet by nearly 12 feet. Both rooms have pale carpets and smart sash windows.
The huge converted loft room (of 20 feet by over 13 feet) is the last room of the tour - with large double-glazed window to leafy and far-reaching south London vistas, plus two skylight windows, and accessible eaves storage.
Set between two Fare Zone 2 stations, you are also well-served by buses into Central London.
You are also mere minutes from some of the most lauded restaurants south of the river. We particularly like Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati. 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 and Peckham Levels, all just off Rye Lane).
Independent shopping is easy - on Grove Vale, and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane (here we particularly like SMBS Foods, William Rose, Mons, Moxon’s and The Cheese Block), where you'll also find a Picturehouse cinema. Top shops on Bellenden Road include Flock & Herd butchery and Review bookstore.
For more options, Camberwell, Herne Hill, Brixton and Dulwich Village are all easily reached.
Local green spaces? These include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Goose Green, Peckham Rye Park and Common (Grade II listed and with Green Flag status) and Ruskin Park. The Peckham Coal Line - an exciting crowdfunded linear park connecting Peckham’s two stations - will soon be added to that little list.
The most local schools to the house include The Belham, Dog Kennel Hill, Lyndhurst, St John’s & St Clement’s, and Goose Green primaries, The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School, and The Charter School East Dulwich (secondary).
