Crystal Palace Road, East Dulwich
Gorgeous garden flat alert! With its own front door and private side access too, here's a one bedroom Victorian conversion pad of the oversized variety.
Having been extended from its original footprint, you’ve got 617 square feet (and that excludes the large garden studio - an ideal spot for working from home/yoga/whatever!).
The location is a delightful residential road that’s within a short walk of North Cross Road (with its delightful Saturday market), Lordship Lane, Bellenden Road and Rye Lane. Goose Green and Peckham Rye Park and Common are close, too, and East Dulwich and Peckham Rye stations are an easy walk away (11 and 15 minutes). Parking is unrestricted on the street.
The flat takes the lower ground floor of a handsome Victorian bay-fronted semi-detached townhouse. Upon entering through your own front door, there is a large store to your right (the space under your neighbour’s front steps).
Left of the hall and you’ll find a large double bedroom - of over 12 feet by over 13 feet. Stripped and painted boards, built-in bespoke closets, and plantation shutters are all welcome features.
At the foot of the hall, open into the generous reception room - of over 16 feet by 11 feet. A vintage wood-burner plus custom-made shelving bring on the smiles. In the corner of the living room, take a few steps up to find your bathroom. This has a white suite in a traditional style, paired with old-fashioned taps. The room also boats a modern independent shower. Two windows offer verdant vistas out to the property’s private garden.
The modern fitted kitchen has a large roof light and French doors which lead out to the sunny west-facing garden: this is a is well-established one, with plenty of fruiting trees and flowering plants, and a good chunk of lawn. The garden studio rests at the far end of the garden. This is triple-aspect (plus there’s a roof light) and double-glazed, and has delightful rustic wooden boards to the floor, and cool polished-plaster to the walls. It’s also got power.
This flat is extremely well-placed. East Dulwich leisure centre is blissfully-local for pool, gym and classes. Or you can sign up for Military Fitness on Peckham Rye! There are two local cinemas to choose from: a Picturehouse one on Lordship Lane, and an independent one on Rye Lane (Peckham Plex).
You’re close to two Fare Zone 2 stations - East Dulwich and Peckham Rye; the latter gives you the Overground line links and Thameslink trains in addition to regular London Bridge and Victoria options.
Independent shopping on Lordship Lane is a must. We love SMBS, The Cheese Block, Mons and William Rose (butchery). There’s an M&S Food Hall also. Local cafes include the lovely one on Peckham Rye itself (Cafe on the Rye), and Cafe G on Peckham Rye (the road).
There’s a sweet row of shops close by on East Dulwich Road, including a good chippy, beer shop and even an ice cream parlour. Local pubs include The Clocktower, The Gowlett, The Great Exhibition, The EDT, and The Actress and The Bishop(!).
If you’re eating out, we recommend locally: Banh Banh, Peckham Bazaar, The Begging Bowl, Artusi, Ganapati, Miss Tapas, Mr Bao, Levan and Franklins. For more options, you’re close to Nunhead, Camberwell, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill.
