Friary Road, Peckham
Characterful double-fronted Georgian house of 1434 square feet over three proper floors. It has a very flexible layout; in current setup there are three double bedrooms (one with an en suite shower room) and three receptions (one a delightful rear extension), plus an eat-in kitchen and main upstairs bathroom. A large and part-walled east-facing garden of circa 50 feet completes the pretty package.
Queens Road Peckham and Peckham Rye stations are close (walk 14 and 16 minutes). Both are Fare Zone 2.
Your central front door is at raised ground floor level - met up a few steps. On entry you have two formal reception rooms to your left and right, of 14 feet by over 9 feet, and 14 feet by over 10. Both rooms are carpeted and boast beautiful box work to their beautiful arched sashes. Both rooms would work equally well as bedrooms.
Take the central stairs up to the first floor to find two double bedrooms (the one to your right is over 14 feet by over 11 feet, with an east-west double-aspect plus built-in alcove closets, and the other is over 9 feet each way). The property’s main bathroom has a sash window to the front of the building, with white sanitary ware and traditional-style fittings including the over bath shower.
At lower ground floor level you’ve got the third double bedroom (of over 13 feet by over 9 feet) set to your left - with a windowed en suite shower room; white sanitary ware here.
The big eat-in kitchen is on your right and measures over 13 feet each way, with modern fitted units to two walls, wooden counters and ceramic herringbone tiling.
Access the double-aspect loft rear reception from here or from the hall space. It’s a splendid room stretching over 18 feet by over 11 feet. Double-glazed double doors deliver you to the decked area of the large and mature garden. A smart shed impresses (we should mention there are three large original storage cupboards in the house too).
There’s loads going on round this way. The Blackbird Bakery by QRP Station is great for coffee and cake. Mama Dough on Queens Road Peckham is top for pizzas, and Beer Rebellion has a tap-room style and beer list, including local brews. Kudu and Smokey Kudu are super spots for South African small plates and cocktails respectively. Pedler has recently joined the impressive line-up.
The Peckham Coal Line is an exciting linear park project which will connect Peckham's stations.
Peckham’s Rye Lane and Bellenden Road are also close (15 minutes by foot) for independent bars, restaurants and events. We like The Bussey Building & Copeland Park plus Market Building, Peckham Levels, Artusi, The Begging Bowl, Petitou, Levan and The Montpelier pub to name a few.
You’re also close to all things New Cross - including the contemporary art gallery and Curzon cinema within the Goldsmiths University campus. The Rose Inn and The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby are nice locals, and Telegraph Hill’s Victorian parks are pretty and offer up great views and a cute Saturday Farmers’ Market. There’s also a weekly Farmers’ Market by Peckham Library (held every Sunday 9am-1pm). Find a modern leisure centre here too.
A short walk from the house, find Brimmington Park; flanked by a beautiful Grade II listed crescent (Clifton Crescent), with active local residents group: ‘The Friends of East Peckham’.
Burgess Park, Peckham Rye Park and Common and even Greenwich Park are all but a short bus ride or cycle.
