Howden Street, Peckham Rye
1580 square feet of souped-up Victorian terrace in a prime Peckham Rye residential position, just 9 minutes by foot from Peckham Rye Station, and 5 from Bellenden Road. You’re also a brief stroll from The Belham Primary. The house delivers five bedrooms (all doubles) and two bathrooms. The cherry on top is a low-maintenance, part-walled south-east facing garden. Freehold.
In the front door and a double-reception stretching over 24 feet sits off to your left. Recessed lights and pale walls are welcome choices. Plantation shutters feature on the front bay, and wide solid oak boards sit underfoot; these roll through into the huge kitchen/diner which stretches nearly 19 feet by over 14. This is the space you’ll be in a lot either as a family or entertaining. Folding doors open all the way, at the foot of the room, and large skylight windows over the former side-return add to the already good light (the room faces south-east). A long bank of slick, white and handle-free kitchen units grace one wall. The garden has both decked (following the flow of the internal floor boards) and lawned areas, with established borders.
Up the stairs and from the half landing you have a bedroom to the back of the house, of over 10 feet by over 9. Adjacent is the smartest of windowed bathrooms (recently done), with independent shower. Up to the landing and the master bedroom takes the width of the house, at 15 feet by 11. Built-in wardrobes feature here. Another double sits behind, at 11 feet by over 9. Up again for double number four - this time at over 11 feet by nearly 9, then some more stairs to the loft suite which is beautifully-done, and gives you a large bedroom of over 17 feet by over 9, and an en suite shower room with clever sliding door for access. There’s easily-accessible eaves storage up here too.
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 8 minutes) and Warwick Gardens (10).
Bellenden Road is close for such delightful restaurants as Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati (the latter also has a classy takeaway on Maxted Road). Local pubs include The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier and The White Horse. Peckham’s main high street, Rye Lane, is close too for trendy hangouts such as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex, as well as having handy high street shops, a great-value cinema (Peckham Plex), and fruit and veg. stalls. Independent shops on Bellenden Road include Review bookstore, The General Store and Flock & Herd butchery. There’s even a plastic-free shop coming soon!
