Elm Grove, Peckham Rye
Enhanced four bedroom Victorian house over three floors, with a sunny south-west facing ‘city’ garden, on a leafy no-through street within the Holly Grove Conservation Area. It’s close to Peckham Rye station, Bellenden Road, Rye Lane and The Belham Primary School (walk but a few minutes to each).
At some 1568 square feet, it is a top proposition for a grown or growing family - or equally suitable for those who like to entertain or need space to work from home. There’s permit-parking on-street. 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 floorboards 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 the first 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.
Bellenden Road is a brief walk for independent cafes, restaurants and shops. Our favourites include Artusi, Ganapati, Made of Dough, The Begging Bowl, Review bookstore, Anderson’s, and Levan and Il Giardino are delicious - on Blenheim Grove. Rye Lane is close too for Peckham Plex cinema (films for a fiver!) and The Bussey and Market Buildings, plus handy high street shops and services and trendy bars and eateries.
Local pubs include The White Horse, The Prince Albert, The Montpelier and The Vic(toria) Inn. For more options for socialising or shopping, you’re walkable to Camberwell and Dulwich (15-20 minutes).
Local parks include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Burgess Park and Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres.
At the top of Warwick Gardens on Azenby Road is The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7). You’re also very close to the new Belham Primary School (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and to Bellenden Primary (Ofsted-rated 'Good').
Peckham's ablaze with warranted attention of late, and it seems there's more to come with The Peckham Coal Line, the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station, and even more besides.
