Elm Grove, Peckham Rye
Charming, tucked away two double bed early-Victorian semi-detached house in Farrow & Ball hues, and with loft conversion potential for a third bedroom, on one of Peckham Rye’s finest streets. The property has two reception rooms, an eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms, and a generous bathroom.
The handsome home has a neat front garden with railings, side access, and a south-facing (hello sunshine!), low-maintenance ‘city’ garden.
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. Freehold.
Open your own front door to your hall then through another where the stairs run up ahead. The front and rear receptions feature well-made bespoke alcove cupboards and book shelving. Stripped floors and twin period fireplaces with slate hearths impress further. A back door opens from the second reception (you’ve another from the kitchen).
A large under stairs cupboard sits to your left by the door to the kitchen - which is a good size at over 14 feet by over 8. Two windows look onto the very private garden. The fitted kitchen units are timeless white and you have a pine-fronted larder cupboard and lovely tiled floor.
The part-walled garden is a cute sun trap stretching 16 feet. Side access is great for gardening or when you have pals over, or when you want to roll in bikes/buggy/scooter.
Up to the first floor and the first double bedroom is set to the rear of the house. It’s over 14 feet by nearly 9, has recessed lighting (as the kitchen does), pale carpet, and an original feature fireplace.
Next up is the thoughtfully-designed oversized bathroom with Fired Earth floor tiles, white sanitary-ware including a free-standing bath and an independent shower.
The pale-carpeted master bedroom is set to the front of the house. It’s over 14 feet by over 10 feet, with built-in closets and bedside cabinets. Enjoy calm street views from two windows.
Peckham Rye Station (which is currently undergoing regeneration) is blissfully-close; walk 3-4 minutes for the commute or adventures, or grab a bus from nearby Rye Lane or Peckham High Street.
Bellenden Road is a brief (4 minute) walk for independent cafes, restaurants and shops. Our favourites include Anderson’s, Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Review bookstore and Petitou on nearby Choumert Road. We also highly rate Levan 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, 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 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+).
