Denman Road, Peckham Rye
Huge two or three bed flat of 1036 square feet, over the lower ground and ground floors of a big Victorian terrace. The private part-walled sunny garden (facing south-west and with direct access) of over 60 feet is the clincher. Share of Freehold.
Denman Road is a picture-perfect quiet residential Peckham Rye street (one of the 'Lyndhurst toast-rack' ones), close to Peckham Rye Station - walk here in eight minutes.
Open into the shared hall with your front door to your right. Straight ahead is the door to your large front reception room - with high ceilings, stripped floorboards, a handsome period fireplace, and a beautiful bay window with stripped pine box and shutter work, and with timber-framed sashes.
Next door you’ve got a second reception with garden vistas from the window. This room’s currently enjoyed as a generous office. It makes an equally good third bedroom. Stripped floorboards are underfoot in here too.
Moving through the flat you’ve got a cute windowed lobby (with built-in cupboard), then a generous eat-in kitchen of over 13 feet by over 9 feet. Wooden cupboards and counters feature, plus painted boards, a modern vertical radiator, and a big sash window onto the wide side return area.
Beyond the kitchen you’ve got a back door to the garden to your right, then the property’s windowed bathroom with white sanitary ware and an over bath shower.
Set to the lower ground floor you’ve got a large store room (plus another cupboard) and two carpeted double bedrooms; these are over 12 feet and over 11 feet, and over 12 feet by 10 feet. The rear bedroom delightfully delivers you to the garden via double-doors.
The large garden is just a joy - a relaxed affair that’s largely laid to lawn, surrounded by more gardens. It’s a pleasingly private space, and a real retreat from the hustle and bustle.
This is a top spot for all ages. Rye Lane is close for Peckham Plex, The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex and Peckham Levels, plus fruit and veg stalls and handy high street shops and banks etc. Bellenden Road is a brief (five minute) walk for cafes and independent shops and restaurants - not a chain in sight! We love Review for books, Ganapati (for the best Keralan food you’ll find outside of Kerala), Artusi, The Begging Bowl and The General Store. Choumert Road is also close for Petitou cafe, and The Montpelier pub.
Warwick Gardens is your most local green space and playground, while other locals include Lettsom Gardens, Ruskin and Brunswick Parks, and Peckham Rye Park & Common.
Peckham’s already a searing spot, but there’s even more to come: examples being The Peckham Coal Line, and the significant development in and around Peckham Rye Station.
Camberwell and East Dulwich are also close for more options. In Camberwell, check out The South London Gallery, The Camberwell Arms, Theo's and Gladwell's deli. In East Dulwich, we like William Rose, The Dulwich Picturehouse, Franklin's and North Cross Road's yummy Saturday market.
There are good schools and nurseries in the locale: local families use The Villa Nursery from 2 years (which also has a Pre-Preparatory school to age 7), and Lyndhurst, The Belham and Bellenden primaries.
