Danby Street, Peckham Rye
Architect-owned, extended and enhanced four bed, three bath bay-fronted mid-Victorian terrace of 1278 square feet (excluding the cellar space), with sunny south-facing garden plus garden studio - with power. The impressive house boasts underfloor heating throughout and low-voltage lighting too.
Find it on one of Peckham Rye’s prettiest residential streets - just 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 but a two minute trot.
The front garden (as indeed the house) has a modern treatment with cool architectural fence and gate - more of an artwork! In your oversized part-glazed front door and you open into an enormous reception room - once two rooms - stretching over 23 feet. There’s no space-wasting corridors here, with smart stairs leading up on your right. Engineered walnut flooring and custom-built alcove storage, plus beautiful white-painted wooden shutters on the big bay window are all welcome features.
Moving toward the kitchen/dining room you’ve got a handy under stairs cloak cupboard to your right (take a few stairs down here to the former coal cellar - now a useful wine store/utility), and a downstairs w.c. to your left. In the other corner of the reception room is a cute nook area with large window onto the kitchen - which makes an ideal work space.
The kitchen/dining room is over 17 feet by over 12 feet, incorporating a smart side-return extension. The kitchen units are slick and timeless, with granite counters. Maximum glazing in the room ensures great light, and a huge single timber-framed glazed door delivers you to the south-facing low-maintenance garden and garden studio.
Up to the half-landing and you’ve got a double-aspect double bedroom to the rear, of over 13 feet by over 8 feet, and a neat wet room next door.
From the main landing you have a generous double bedroom with built-in closets, three sash windows, and an en suite bathroom. Next door is a third bedroom (of over 8 feet by 8 feet), with garden views. All four bedrooms have engineered walnut floors.
Up the (skylit) stairs and you’ll find the impressive master suite which is the most recent addition to the house; we find it rather breathtaking with its house-wide south-facing glazing, sliding door, generous built-in closets and immaculate contemporary shower room too. You’ve also got plenty of easily-accessible eaves storage.
Peckham Rye is all of a sizzle at present, with newcomers incoming, and current Peckhamites up and downsizing in the town they know and love. Current regeneration projects include the Peckham Rye Station redevelopment (including the arches on Blenheim Grove). We’re also incredibly 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 delights such 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 etc. The Camberwell Arms 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 delightful.
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? 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 in the area and is 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.
