Hollydale Road, Peckham
Just-renovated three bed bay-fronted Victorian terraced house with neat garden of circa 30 feet, which is accessed from French doors from the generous kitchen/diner. Freehold.
Relevant permissions obtained; there’s obvious loft conversion potential (many neighbours on the street have converted theirs) and you could extend over the side-return space too.
Walk just five minutes to Queens Road Peckham Station, or nine to Nunhead Station. Nunhead’s village-vibe high street is also close.
A neat walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement and a tiled path is a pleasing route to the front door. Once in, you’ve got a double-reception to your right. The first (front) reception is over 12 feet by 11 feet, and the second is over 10 feet by over 9 feet. The front room has double-glazed sash windows in the big bay (these also feature in the master bedroom above).
At the foot of the hall you arrive at the double-aspect kitchen/diner which extends 24 feet. Another bay window provides the perfect spot for a tea and toast table, and beyond the (generous, slick, modern fitted) kitchen is a natural formal dining area with garden vistas.
The garden is currently a simple affair awaiting your flair. It has a paved area with generous lawn beyond, with part-stocked borders and smart new fencing.
Up the stairs and from from the half-landing you’ve got a smart carpeted bedroom to garden views, of over 8 feet by over 7 feet. Adjacent is the property’s (windowed) bathroom, with large profile tiling, contemporary white suite, under-basin cabinet, and over bath shower.
From the main landing you've got bedrooms two and three. The bedroom to your left is over 10 feet each way, while the twin-sashed master bedroom runs the width of the house (over 15 feet) by over 10 feet. Chimney breasts in all three bedrooms have been removed - maximising the space and allowing for flexibility with your furniture placement.
The QRP area is attracting more attention than ever before, with an impressive number of eateries, drinkeries and shopping opportunities; these include Kudu restaurants and cocktail bar, Well & Fed, Beer Rebellion, Vintique (vintage furniture), Blackbird Bakery and Mamma Dough pizzeria. There’s a handy Tesco store and cash point by the station as well.
Walk 15 minutes west for Rye Lane and Bellenden Road and more foodie, social and shopping options.
Nunhead has your closest high street area. Here we love Ayres bakery and F C Soper wet fish shop, and the pretty Victorian library on Gordon Road. Also El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops.
Peckham Bazaar (delicious pan-Balkan fayre and wine list) is an easy walk too for an incredible dinner.
Heading east, you’ll land on New Cross for nice pubs plus Curzon cinema and contemporary art gallery (CCA Goldsmiths) - both on the Goldsmiths campus and very much open to the public.
Green space? Telegraph Hill’s parks are really close (check out the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays at the lower park), plus Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres. Local Nunhead Cemetery is beautiful and one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’. Nunhead Green is much smaller but close, as is little Kirkwood Nature Reserve (with Peckham Coal line coming soon!). Sydenham Woods and Dulwich Park are a short drive.
For more options, Greenwich Park and Blackheath and their village centres are an easy car journey (15 minutes), bus or cycle ride. East Dulwich’s lovely Lordship Lane is also close, and North Cross Road’s Saturday market (alongside its cute shops) is not to be missed.
Local schools and nurseries are very good and include Edmund Waller (Primary), Ivydale, Hollydale, and St Thomas the Apostle (Secondary and Sixth Form College). Kids’ swimming lessons with James at STAC are a must-know-about.
