Forest Hill Road, East Dulwich

Pleasing curved-bay-fronted thirties semi with three bedrooms (two generous doubles and a big single), an architecturally-treated kitchen/diner and bathroom, side access, and a 40 foot garden. The house measures in at 1169 square feet. Parking is unrestricted on the street. Chain free - lucky you! 

The location is also a winner: Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres is mere minutes away, as are a bank of local shops, including a handy Co-Op.

Walk to Honor Oak Park Station in 15 minutes, or buses run along your street to Peckham Rye Station - both offer regular and Overground services. East Dulwich's main high street area - Lordship Lane - is also close, and your local schools include Fairlawn, St Francesca Cabrini, Horniman and Goodrich primaries, and the Harris secondaries. 

A walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement. In your front door and you're greeted by a wide and welcoming windowed hall. To your right, you have your front reception room (of over 15 feet by over 12 feet) in an on-trend pink paint hue, with stripped floors flowing in from the hall. 

Past the handy under stairs cupboard and to the rear of the house you’ve got a fab big kitchen/diner (very recently-finished), of over 19 feet by nearly 15 feet, enjoying more stripped and treated floorboards underfoot. Daily life with your few and entertaining the masses both work really well here. 

The fitted kitchen has two long runs of plentiful units (in a timeless white design) and you’ve got loads of counter space and an island/bar area. All the options! The natural dining space has verdant views onto the garden. A second back door (oversized, double-glazed) opens out from the kitchen area. 

Ascend the windowed stairwell (noting the stained-glass) and from the landing you’ve got your bathroom and independent w.c. to your left. Both in the same cool style. The slick bathroom has concealed plumbing, a contemporary basin (with under-basin storage) and free-standing bath, monochrome fittings, large format terrazzo tiling, and an independent walk-in shower. 

We’ve mentioned Peckham Rye Park and Common. There are loads of lovely green spaces to call local. Horniman Gardens is gorgeous, as is One Tree Hill. 

In addition to the run of handy local shops and eateries (which include Italian and Indian restaurants and a French cafe) close to the house, enjoy those on Lordship and Rye Lanes, as well as those of Honor Oak and Nunhead centres.

Your local cinema is East Dulwich Picturehouse, and for social meets, Watson’s General Telegraph and The Herne Tavern are your closest public houses. Both in handsome Victorian buildings and with big outside areas. 

Bellenden Road also isn’t far for top restaurants including Artusi, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl. Other great dining options in SE15 include Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Levan, The Coal Rooms and Peckham Bazaar. In SE22 we like Franklins, Kartuli and Yama Momo.

East Dulwich leisure centre is a short stroll away, or you can sign yourself up for British Military Fitness workouts on Peckham Rye!
