Copleston Road, Peckham Rye
Five double bed two bath bay-fronted Victorian terraced house of 2386 square feet, which has been the welcome subject of a really high-end renovation and architectural treatment, and which is rich in luxury features.
The property’s delivered over three floors and has two entrances (at lower ground and upper ground levels) and a large sunny garden of 55 feet. Residents' parking has recently been introduced on this and nearby streets.
The house has a simply incredible reception space with folding doors, to the rear of the lower ground floor - which properly optimises the bottom of the house. There’s also PP for a sizeable loft conversion should you wish for a second (fourth!) floor, once-in.
It's such a good spot to call home! Peckham Rye Station is a 10 minute walk. And East Dulwich Station is yours in 11. Both are Fare Zone 2.
For those with kids or thinking of... nursery, primary and secondary provision is strong within easy walking distance.
Entering at the lower ground floor’s front door, you’ll first find a handy store/wine store to your right, under the external stairs. To your left you open into a natural dining room of over 18 feet by over 13 feet. Solid wooden floors impress to the floor (these flow throughout the entire floor). Bespoke shutters grace the big bay window.
On through and you land in the kitchen area of the enormous open-plan kitchen/reception which is over 32 feet by over 15 feet. The room’s staggeringly-sized and beautifully-appointed. We especially love the slick fitted kitchen; in Shaker-style, with ceramic herringbone and brick-style wall tile detail, marble counters, and a large kitchen island/bar. And there's a very generous amount of cupboard space.
At the foot of the room you’ve got wall-spanning folding doors onto the garden - which is pro-landscaped, zoned and super low-maintenance by design, with big raised and established beds.
Entering at upper ground level, you open into a smart formal entrance hall with a tiled floor, ornate coving and rose detailing, and neat coat closet. First on your left of the hall is a large first bedroom of over 14 feet by over 12 feet (bespoke shutters featuring again to this bay). Adjacent is the second bedroom - this one’s over 13 feet by nearly 12. Both rooms have attractive feature fireplaces.
A neat shower room’s next up, and beyond is another double bedroom of over 14 feet by over 12 feet. This room’s double-aspect, and - like all the others - doesn’t have to be used as a bedroom if you don’t need them all! This one’s currently set up as a media room, with in-built speakers.
Up to the first floor, and you’ve got another double-aspect bedroom at the back of the house. It’s over 12 feet by over 10 feet. The neat w.c. is accessed next door and this opens into a luxury oversized bathroom with free-standing central bath, two basins, and an independent shower as well.
You can also access the bathroom from the master bedroom; the fifth and final bedroom sits at the front of the house and incorporates a wonderful walk-in wardrobe with fitted closets. Three windows offer quiet street views (this part of the street is a no-through street: dreamy!).
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 Bellenden Road and on Grove Vale, and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane - 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).
