Gordon Road, Peckham
Delightful bay-fronted three bedroom Victorian terrace. The ground floor has been architecturally-treated: enjoy a huge rear reception room with folding doors onto the garden.
The house measures in at 1324 square feet, and the low-maintenance garden extends 43 feet.
Across the road, you have two little parks: Consort and Dr Harold Moody. And Peckham Rye Park and Common is a five minute walk away.
You’ve got three Zone 2 stations within very easy reach: Peckham Rye and Queens Road Peckham are at your feet in 5-10 minutes. Nunhead Station is yours in 12.
For high street areas, you’ve got Nunhead and Rye Lane. Or walk a little further for East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane.
In your front door and it’s left for the formal front reception - of over 14 feet by over 12 feet. A wood-burning stove and custom-made shutters feature here. The large modern fitted kitchen (with breakfast bar) sits where the original second reception would have once been; cleverly open-plan to both reception spaces.
The rear room stretches 25 feet. There’s loads of space for zoning dining and reception spaces as you please. Exposed brick and steel work are pleasing design decisions. Multiple skylight windows plus a further picture window keep matters bright. Off this reception room, you’ve got a handy utility room with an internal shower room/downstairs w.c. accessed from here.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ll find a double bedroom to garden views, and the property’s main (windowed) bathroom. This has contemporary white sanitary ware and fittings, an over-bath shower, and under-basin storage.
From the main landing, it’s right for the second bedroom (11 feet by 10 feet), and straight ahead for the twin-windowed master bedroom (over 15 feet by nearly 12 feet). The two rear bedrooms are carpeted, while the front bedroom has engineered oak to the floor.
What’s about? Local to you; Kudu Grill on Nunhead Lane, Kudu on Queens Road, and Peckham Bazaar on nearby Consort Road (this one’s closest) are three of the hottest restaurants in SE15. Book ahead. The Bussey Building & Copeland Park and Peckham Levels are also close for the trendiest of pop-up eateries, drinkeries, exhibitions and the like.
The ‘triangle’ at the end of Peckham Rye is ablaze with an ever-growing number of places to eat and hang out. Mr Bao (Asian), Voodoo Ray's, Bo KIRI and Good Neighbour are just a few. Bellenden Road and Rye Lane provide lots more options. The Peckham Coal Line linear park is an exciting future development for the area.
Getting about is embarrassingly easy - no excuse for an Uber! Grab a regular or Overground train at Peckham Rye, QRP or Nunhead stations.
Local schools are all well-regarded and include Edmund Waller, John Donne, Hollydale, Ivydale and Bellenden primaries, and for younger ones, Banana Moon Day Nursery is a short walk away on Machell Road (or it’s a short drive to The Villa Nursery on Lyndhurst Grove - from two years).
