Copleston Road, Peckham Rye
Chain-free two double bedroom first floor Victorian conversion flat, with Planning Permission in place to convert the large loft (creating a three/four bedroom pad - adding circa 32 square metres plus a roof terrace). Share of Freehold.
The location’s 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). Permit-parking for residents has recently been introduced on this and nearby streets.
There’s just one flat below you (which is owner-occupied and was recently the subject of a very high standard renovation) and you share an entrance hall. The hall and front garden are both newly renovated, and the front garden has a shared lockable bike store.
Your front door is straight ahead. Take the stairs up from here and to the rear of the property, at this half-landing level, you’ve got a double bedroom of over 13 feet by over 8 feet. The room is pleasingly double-aspect, with two sash windows delivering leafy garden vistas.
Next door is a neat windowed bathroom with white suite, over bath shower, and a double-glazed window.
From the main landing, the second double bedroom is on your left - of over 10 feet by nearly 10 feet, with a sash window to leafy views over gardens.
A huge reception room is across the front of the terrace, and this incorporates a smart kitchen to one corner. The big bay window is an obvious spot for the dining table.
The large loft space is demised to the flat and is ripe for conversion. Lucky you - the sellers have already obtained Planning Permission. The consented plans add another circa 32 square metres to the floor area, plus a roof terrace. The proposed plans include a master bedroom with en suite (in the loft), and a new second bedroom with roof terrace. The existing second bedroom can either be converted to a kitchen, or retained as a home office/fourth bedroom. There is loads of potential for you to make it your own. The full application/consent can be seen on the Southwark planning portal.
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.
Local schools and nurseries include The Belham, The Villa and Bellenden.
