Keston Road, Peckham Rye
Impressive three bed upper-floor split-level Victorian conversion apartment of 1213 square feet, with a big and brilliant west-facing roof terrace (complete with church spire and skyline views), loads of storage, both bath and shower rooms, and an independent w.c. too. The property has the advantage of the Freehold for the whole building - feel free to ask us for further detail.
Find the pleasing pad on a particularly quiet, tree-lined residential street in Peckham, bordering East Dulwich. Walk just 10 minutes to Peckham Rye Station, or 11 to East Dulwich Station (both are Fare Zone 2). Bellenden Road and Lordship Lane are also close
A tidy communal hall welcomes you in (there’s just one flat below), then open your own front door straight ahead and head up the stairs to the half landing.
A large double bedroom of 17 feet by 10 feet is up ahead, with big bay window (facing west).
A modern bathroom sits adjacent - and this has white sanitary ware, over bath shower, and large profile wall tiles.
Up a few stairs to the main landing for the living section of the flat: the eat-in kitchen is a good size, at 12 feet by 10 feet, on your right. Cork flooring to the floor in here, and stylish fitted kitchen units and matching open-shelving, teamed with solid oak counters.
The classy reception room takes the width of the terrace at the front of the building. It’s a whopping 16 feet by 14 feet and faces east - lovely for morning light. There’s a large bay window plus an additional one above the front door (both with bespoke shutters), sisal flooring, an old school style radiator, and a wood-burning stove. You’ve also got built-in alcove shelving: ideal for books and best bits.
The second double bedroom is up the stairs, at the rear of the flat. It’s an excellent size again, at 15 feet by 11 feet, with generous custom-made built-in wardrobes.
There’s a slick windowed shower room next door - with contemporary fittings and smart travertine tiling.
Next up is the converted loft part of the property. The large third bedroom has skylight windows and loads of easily-accessible eaves storage, in addition to built-in closets. You also have an independent and skylit w.c. next door, with more eaves storage.
Finally you’ve got your low-maintenance roof terrace (access this from either the lobby area of the master suite, or from the landing - nice!); it’s 19 feet by 11 feet and is walled and decked. Skyline views will be well-enjoyed night and day. It faces west with a twist of south - so is a sun trap all afternoon.
This is a notably leafy yet well-connected locale, with Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres, plus Goose Green’s pretty green space - with perfect plane trees - just around the corner. Interestingly, Goose Green was purchased in 1868 by Camberwell Vestry (at the same time as Peckham Rye Common) to save it from development. Phew!
Busy trendy centres are just a short distance from your door - in the shape of fashionable Bellenden Road, hipster-central Rye Lane, and Lordship Lane. Some of our favourite spots include Ganapati, Artusi, Levan, Forza Wine and Terroirs. Foodie shopping is particularly easy in ED - we like The Cheese Block, SMBS, William Rose and Moxon’s. North Cross Road has a wonderful regular Saturday market also.
The Gowlett pub is a lovely local with pizzas. You’re also close to The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier and The White Horse, and cafe culture is also easily landed upon - Petitou and Cafe G are a couple of nice examples.
East Dulwich leisure centre is a five minute stroll for pool, gym, classes and crèche. Dulwich Picturehouse is your most local cinema.
