Elm Grove, Peckham Rye
Charming, tucked away early-Victorian semi-detached house of 1039 square feet, with a south-facing ‘city’ garden (and side access to this), multiple receptions, two double bedrooms, and a loft room too - accessed from the master bedroom.
Welcome features throughout the property include stripped floors and doors, sash windows, period fireplaces, and lots of custom-made storage.
Elm Grove is one of Holly Grove Conservation Area’s prettiest offerings - near Holly Grove Shrubbery, and with a no-through road status to the Rye Lane end.
Peckham Rye (Fare Zone 2) station is a short walk for Overground and regular trains. Permit-parking is on-street.
A neat front garden is a pleasing welcome. Open your own front door and the carpeted stairs run up ahead. To your right you’ve got your double-reception - where alcove shelving and cupboards impress.
At the foot of the hall (under stairs cupboard resting to your left), find a third reception space - a natural dining room. This is over 10 feet by 8 feet, with sash window and timber stable door out to the established and low-maintenance paved garden.
The cute garden’s a sunny spot thanks to its southerly orientation, and side access is great for gardening or when you have pals over, or when you want to roll in bikes/buggy/scooter.
Beyond the dining room is the modern kitchen with glossy white wall and base units on two walls, teamed with wooden counters.
Up the stairs and a large bathroom sits at half-landing level. It’s a full and windowed one with both a free-standing bath and an independent shower. An original fireplace, sash window and recessed lighting also feature.
Up to the landing proper and the first bedroom is set to your left. This is over 10 feet by nearly 9, with sash window to garden vistas.
Up front is the master bedroom of over 14 feet by over 10 feet. Enjoy calm street views from twin sash windows. Smart wooden stairs here take you to the skylit loft room (currently enjoyed as a home office). There’s built-in and deep storage here, into the eaves.
Peckham Rye Station (which is currently undergoing regeneration) is blissfully-close; walk but three to four minutes for the commute or adventures, or grab a bus from nearby Rye Lane or Peckham High Street.
Bellenden Road is a brief - four minute - walk for independent cafes, restaurants and shops. A few of our favourites include Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Review bookstore and Petitou (this last one on nearby Choumert Road). We also highly rate Levan, The Coal Rooms and Il Giardino on Blenheim Grove. Local public houses include The Montpelier, The Prince Albert and The Vic(toria) Inn.
Rye Lane is really close, too, for trendy destinations such as Peckham Levels, Forza Wine atop The Market Building, and The Bussey Building (yoga classes, exhibitions and more) and Copeland Park, plus handy high street shops, markets and services.
For more options, Camberwell, Dulwich and Herne Hill are all close at hand.
Warwick Gardens is your local park and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres are a short walk.
You’re also very close to the new Belham Primary School (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and to Bellenden Primary and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (age 2+).
