Danby Street, Peckham Rye
Dishy three bed, two bath Victorian terrace of 1180 square feet (excluding generous cellar and loft spaces), which has been extended to the rear and over the side return. There remains glaringly-obvious potential to push up into the loft too; as is a popular enhancement to many neighbouring and local homes.
Welcome features found throughout the handsome home include wooden floors, recessed lighting, a neutral decorative scheme, sash windows and lots of period fireplaces. The house has a part-walled low-maintenance decked garden which faces full south... bask in day-long sun.
It’s in a pretty residential spot this: one of Peckham Rye’s favoured and oft-requested streets; you’re but an eight minute walk from Peckham Rye Station, and a 12 minute one from East Dulwich Station. Both are Fare Zone 2. The Belham Primary School and Bellenden Road are also close - just two minutes by foot.
A neat front garden sets you back from the street. In your front door and the through-reception is set to your right. The front reception has a beautiful bay window. Access the kitchen/dining room from the second reception or from the hall.
At the end of the hall you’ve got your door to the large and handy cellar (of over 24 feet by over 14 feet). Straight ahead is the large kitchen/dining room - which stretches 25 feet from the entrance doorway. On entry to the generous and south-facing room (skylight windows further illuminate), a utility cupboard is on your left, and a neat shower room and w.c. is on your right. The kitchen is a timeless modern white gloss affair, with integrated appliances (included in the sale) and wooden counters. Folding doors span almost the entire rear wall and deliver you to the respectable and total suntrap garden, of over 17 feet.
Up to the half-landing and you have a carpeted double bedroom to garden views, with the property’s bathroom next door. This is a neat skylit number with contemporary sanitary ware, mirrored wall cabinet, and over bath shower.
From the main landing you have the master bedroom across the front of the building (it’s over 11 feet by nearly 14 feet, with three windows), and the third bedroom’s next door - at over 11 feet by over 8 feet.
Peckham Rye is an on the map des-res, with incoming alongside local movers. Current regeneration projects include the Peckham Rye Station redevelopment (including the arches on Blenheim Grove). We’re also so very excited about The Peckham Coal Line - a linear park which will connect Peckham’s two stations. Who needs New York?!
Peckham has lots of independent shops, restaurants and cafes. Within a matter of minutes you have such delights as Artusi, Miss Tapas, The Begging Bowl, Levan, Petitou, Melange, The General Store, Flock & Herd butchery, Il Giardino and Review.
(Currently pedestrianised) Rye Lane is also close for trendy destinations such as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park, plus handy high street shops, banks and fruit and veg stalls.
Central Camberwell is an easy walk down ravishing Camberwell Grove, for The South London Gallery and more restaurants, pubs etc. The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road and Theo's come recommended.
East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane has lovely shops, bars and cafes, as well as an M&S Food Hall and a Picturehouse cinema. And North Cross Road’s regular Saturday market is a foodie winner.
Green space? Warwick Gardens and Lettsom Gardens are just a short walk. Bigger open spaces include Peckham Rye Park and Common, Ruskin and Dulwich Parks.
Little ones or thinking of? The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School is local to you on nearby Lyndhurst Grove. The Belham Primary (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) is the newest school on the block - proving a gigantic hit with local families. Walk there in two minutes. Bellenden, Dog Kennel Hill and Lyndhurst primaries are also very well-regarded. The Charter School East Dulwich is your local and popular Secondary.
