Elm Grove, Peckham Rye
Enhanced four bedroom Victorian house over three floors, within the Holly Grove conservation area. At some 1553 square feet, it is a top proposition for a grown or growing family, though equally suitable for those who like to entertain or work from home. Pretty Elm Grove is a very well-connected and leafy spot, with Peckham Rye station just a few minutes away on foot. It’s a no-through road too, making for a surprisingly quiet existence for a classy, trendy zone 2 location. Freehold.
A front garden sets you back from the street. The huge reception room (once two rooms) is 23ft in length and has a working fireplace and bay window to street views. This space is open to a recently-added dining space that’s wonderfully light thanks to the south-westerly orientation (bi-fold doors open to the low-maintenance garden space) and two large skylight windows. The kitchen/diner is 20ft wide and the double-aspect dedicated kitchen area is fitted with plenty of wall and base units. There’s also a breakfast bar.
On the first floor, find three bedrooms. The master bedroom with bay window takes the width of the house and has painted floor boards and handy built-in eaves wardrobes. The vista down the street is sweeping, lovely, and also architecturally interesting; Elm Grove and Highshore Road serve up some of Peckham’s finest property stock. The house has both bath and shower rooms. Both are on this floor and both have been recently refurbished and have white sanitaryware.
It’s up to the second floor for the fourth (double) bedroom with more views that include London skyline ones! Large eaves cupboards solve the commonly-raised storage query, and allow for easy access of stored bits.
Peckham Rye station is close for the commute or venturing out, or grab a bus from nearby Rye Lane or Peckham High Street. Peckham Rye station is zone 2 and is on the Overground network, which is proving a real hit.
