Goldsmith Road, Peckham
A large and light early-Victorian town house of 1470 square feet - which delivers four floors, big living spaces, three double bedrooms and two full bathrooms, plus extras (including an independent utility room, a downstairs w.c. and a study/dressing room.) A south-facing garden completes the package.
You’re located between Peckham Rye and Queens Road Peckham (Zone 2) stations: walk just 10-12 minutes for either.
Built in 1845 and once forming part of the original Peckham Settlement buildings, the house has been thoughtfully renovated, extended and constructed to a high standard, with careful attention to detail - including sympathetic stonework restoration to the terrace’s façade.
A respectful and successful blend of old and new, the renovation takes full advantage of its south-facing orientation, with an impressive, galleried main reception, with double-height, wall-spanned glazed gallery on the rear extension (enhancing the aspect of the kitchen/dining room on the lower ground floor).
The entrance leads up smart stone steps to the property’s front door. A lobby area takes care of coats and shoes, before you enter the main reception room (of 22 feet by almost 16 feet).
Oak floors run underfoot and a stylish-design electric fire with LED flame technology is a welcome feature. The room is exceptionally bright owing to the large window to the front and the above-mentioned glazing onto garden views.
Down the stairs, you’ll find the large kitchen/diner of 23 feet by 15 feet, with folding doors opening out onto the garden. The kitchen itself is generous and modern in style, with granite worktops, a large central island, and built-in appliances (including a wine fridge).
Beyond this, to the front of the building, sits the dedicated and windowed utility room with separate w.c. The low-maintenance garden is in two tiers, with a paved area close to the house and a sunny lawn area beyond.
On the first floor, find two neat double bedrooms (both have built-in wardrobes) and a contemporary bathroom, with both bath and independent shower.
The second floor hosts a master suite - with en suite bathroom (complete with Shard view!) and an additional en suite office/dressing area.
Goldsmith Road sits just a few minutes from Peckham’s iconic, Stirling Prize winning Library (designed by Will Alsop). Next door to the library, Peckham Pulse has good gym and swim facilities plus classes, and you can take the canal path from just outside here down to Burgess Park.
There is a weekly Farmers’ Market in Peckham Square every Sunday 9am to 1pm, with Bellenden Road and Rye Lane also close by for independent shops (plus the high street staples and supermarkets) providing plenty of places to spend your pennies and attend events, exhibitions, etc. We particularly like Peckham Plex cinema, The Bussey Building and Copeland Park, Review bookstore, The Montpelier, Ganapati, Artusi, The Sourcing Table, and Sally Butcher’s Persepolis (Persia in Peckham!) on Peckham High Street. In the warmer months, Rye Lane rooftop drinks call.
In the other direction, Queens Road has a growing variety of places to eat and drink. Check out Kudu restaurant and its cocktail bar, The Blackbird Bakery, Mamma Dough, Beer Rebellion and Well & Fed.
Local childcare provision includes Nell Gwynn (nursery), and John Donne and Edmund Waller (primaries).
