Holly Grove, Peckham Rye
Architect-designed four bedroom, two bathroom semi-detached house, delivered over three floors, with a south-east facing 'city' garden, plus balcony off the biggest of the bedrooms.
Find the property within Holly Grove Conservation Area - mere steps from ever-cool Bellenden Road, Holly Grove Shrubbery and Warwick Gardens. Walk all of four minutes to Peckham Rye Station.
The main front door is shared with your neighbour. Through your own front door and the first bedroom is to your left (of over 13 feet by over 8 feet). It’s currently enjoyed as an art studio - a flexible room - choose how you use it.
Next door is an internal bathroom with modern white suite and over bath shower, and at the back of the house on this floor is another bedroom (over 13 feet by over 8 feet) with double-glazed double doors onto the sunny and walled urban garden - which is paved and very low maintenance.
Up the stairs and you arrive in the huge and wonderfully-bright double-aspect reception space of over 20 feet by over 13 feet (with more than a bit of the feel of the set of Friends!). There’s loads of space to zone seating, eating and work areas, and multiple windows and timber floors are welcome features, as are the double doors (part-glazed and painted timber) which open to spiral metal stairs down to the garden.
The double-aspect kitchen space is set to the front of the house, with an exposed brick wall, and a brick-style tiled wall next to that. A large arch connects you to the reception space - which gives the whole floor a triple-aspect, and also makes dinner parties flow really nicely.
Up to the second floor and you’ve got two more bedrooms (these are both double-aspect) - of over 13 feet by over 8 feet, and over 13 feet by over 10 feet. The latter is set to the rear of the building and has a private balcony with such pretty leafy views over rows of neighbouring gardens (on Bellenden Road and Lyndhurst Way).
Location? It’s a total winner! You're just a short walk from the station and also the cute shopping stretch of Bellenden Road. Review bookshop, Flock & Herd butchery, Gather and The General Store are a few of our favourites here.
Gastronomic desires are met with ease in this locale - Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl restaurants are all local and delightful. We also like Levan and Il Giardino on Blenheim Grove.
For coffee, pop down to The General Store or Petitou. And The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier and The Prince Albert are all very respectable local drinking establishments.
Rye Lane is close too - for high street essentials, banks and fruit and veg stalls, plus Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, and trendy rooftop bars and pop-ups. Excitingly, there's even more in store for Peckham... including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
Local primary schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and Bellenden Primary. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School for little ones aged 2-7 is also a short walk away.
