Howden Street, Peckham Rye

Five bedroom bay-fronted and extended Victorian terrace of 1425 square feet, on a quiet residential side-street near Bellenden Road, Peckham Rye Station, The Belham and Bellenden primary schools, and Peckham Rye Park and Common. 

A neat walled and tiled front garden is a pleasing welcome. In your front door and your formal reception rooms (pale carpeted) sit to your left. The front room is over 13 feet by 11 feet, with central fireplace, custom-made alcove storage, and bespoke shutters to the bay. The second reception - an obvious dining room - is over 11 feet by nearly 10 feet, and also has alcove shelving and cupboards. 

At the foot of the hall, find your double-aspect kitchen/diner, with another bay window (complete with window-seat/storage), smart wooden flooring, timeless Shaker-style fitted units, and timber-framed French doors which open out onto the garden.

Though the room works really well as it is, there is obvious potential to further extend the house over the side-return, as many neighbours have done. 

The garden’s a low-maintenance paved affair of circa 25 feet, with mature planted-out borders providing colour and interest through the seasons. 

Back inside and from the half-landing, you’ve got a double bedroom to the rear, then the property’s main bathroom next door. This is a full one, with both bath and independent walk-in shower. Fittings and sanitary ware are contemporary in style (we are loving the on-trend monochrome detailing), and you have a frosted window. 

From the main landing, another double bedroom rests to your left (this one’s 11 feet by nearly 10 feet), then the traditional master bedroom (15 feet by 11 feet) fronts the house - with twin sash windows, and a handsome feature fireplace, with smart built-in closets each side to each alcove. 

The next floor is the extended part of the house: you have a double bedroom to the back of the house, then you take a few stairs up for the deftly-done loft conversion. This large bedroom is over 17 feet by over 9 feet, with a Juliet balcony, a skylight window, and plenty of accessible eaves storage. All five bedrooms are carpeted. A skylit modern shower room (accessed from the top landing) completes the tour. 

Local schools are really good round this way and include The Belham and Bellenden primaries. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7) is also well-regarded, on nearby Lyndhurst Grove. Local parks include Peckham Rye Park and Common (walk eight minutes) and Warwick Gardens (10). 

Bellenden Road is close for delightful restaurants such as Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati (the latter also has a classy takeaway on Maxted Road). Local pubs include The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier, The Gowlett and The White Horse. And there’s a new wine bar/shop in town: The Sourcing Table. 

Independent shops on Bellenden Road include Review book store, The General Store, Gather, Casa, and Flock & Herd butchery. 

Peckham’s main high street - Rye Lane - is close too for Peckham Plex (cinema), and trendy hangouts such as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex, as well as handy high street shops and fruit and veg stalls.

For more options, East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane has a great selection of independent fancy grocery offerings, pubs, cafes and restaurants - including a new empanada place (Chacarero Empanada House). North Cross Road Market is a lovely spot on Saturdays too.
