Elm Grove, Peckham Rye
Smart and extended bay-fronted Victorian terraced house, with three double bedrooms, a loft room, and two bathrooms.
The property is delivered over 1159 square feet (excluding the handy cellar) and is double-glazed throughout. A cute courtyard ‘city’ garden completes the package. You are but three minutes by foot from Peckham Rye Station, Rye Lane, and Bellenden Road.
Elm Grove is one of Holly Grove Conservation Area’s prettiest offerings. It’s near Holly Grove Shrubbery, and enjoys a no-through road status (to the Rye Lane end) - it’s so quiet for such a connected spot. And there's on-street permit-parking.
In your front door, and your double-reception is set to your left, stretching nearly 24 feet, with wooden floors. The lower window panes have bespoke shutters for privacy. Open a double-glazed door from the second reception space to the decked low-maintenance outside space.
At the end of the hall, access the basement to your right - under the stairs. The neat kitchen is straight ahead. It’s over 16 feet by over 8 feet, with white modern units, topped with timber counters. Take a right for an independent utility room (you can also access the garden here), which leads to a contemporary shower room.
Upstairs, from the half-landing, you’ve got the main bathroom (windowed, with modern suite and an over bath shower), and a double-aspect bedroom to the rear of the building - of over 10 feet by over 8 feet.
From the main landing, find two further bedrooms - the one to your right is over 10 feet by over 8 feet (with custom-made wardrobes), and the largest bedroom sits across the front of the house - it’s nearly 14 feet by over 10 feet (with welcome built-in closets again).
It’s up to the second floor - noting the clever fitted bookcase by the stairwell - for your attic room: a deftly-done loft conversion, with large skylight window and lots of accessible eaves storage.
Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is winning-at-life close; walk three minutes for the commute or adventures, or grab a bus to central London from nearby Rye Lane or Peckham High Street.
Bellenden Road is a brief walk for independent cafes, restaurants and shops. Some of our favourites include Artusi, Ganapati, The Sourcing Table, The Begging Bowl, Review bookstore and Petitou (on nearby Choumert Road). We also highly rate Levan, Larry’s, The Coal Rooms and Il Giardino - all on Blenheim Grove.
Local pubs include The Montpelier, The Prince Albert and The Vic(toria) Inn.
Rye Lane is really close, too, for trendy destinations such as Peckham Levels, The Market Building, Peckham Plex cinema (films for a fiver!) 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, Nunhead 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 (2+).
