Kings Grove, Peckham
Charming one double bedroom garden flat with own front door, Freehold-share and garden office/studio and store. The garden’s generous at almost 50 feet, and has a pleasing sunny west-facing orientation.
It’s worth noting that the flat has two bedroom potential; should you fancy extending/remodelling.
This is a classy residential no-through street of early-mid Victorian housing stock. It’s quiet yet extremely well-connected: you’re just a three minute walk from Queens Road Peckham Station, and a two minute walk from excellent bus routes heading west to central London, and east to Greenwich etc.
Walk 17 minutes for Peckham Rye Station, and Peckham’s main high street - Rye Lane.
The front door is set under the building’s front steps. Once in, there’s a handy store to your right, and a door to your left opens into the hall. First on your left is the delightful bayed reception room, of over 12 feet each way. Sash windows, stripped floors, recessed lighting and alcove shelving are all welcome features.
Next along the hall you’ll find your shower room with modern white sanitary ware and cool copper detailing.
Next door is the pale-carpeted double bedroom of 10 feet by over 9 feet, with a large sash to garden vistas, and beautiful painted wooden shutters.
The double-aspect kitchen rests at the rear of the house and runs 15 feet. The fitted units are smart and white, paired with wooden worktops. A back door from the top of the room delivers you to the garden; from the side-return section, this opens up to a natural entertaining space under the timber pergola. Beyond is a generous lawn (you’ve also got established beds) and finally a modern home studio/office with power, with a separate store adjacent.
There’s loads going on round this way! The Blackbird Bakery by the station is great for coffee and also opens some evenings. Mama Dough on Queens Road Peckham is top for good-value sourdough pizzas, and Beer Rebellion has a brilliant beer list, including local brews. Well & Fed, and Kudu restaurant (and its swish cocktail bar in a railway arch) are top recommendations, too.
Peckham’s Rye Lane and Bellenden Road are close for independent bars, restaurants and events. We like The Bussey Building & Copeland Park plus Market Building, Peckham Levels, Levan, Artusi, The Begging Bowl, Petitou and The Montpelier pub to name a few!
You’re also close to all things New Cross including the new contemporary art gallery and Curzon cinema. The Rose Inn and The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby are nice locals, and Telegraph Hill’s Victorian parks are pretty and offer up great views and a monthly Farmers’ Market. There’s also a weekly Farmers’ Market by Peckham Library (held every Sunday 9am-1pm). Find a modern leisure centre here too.
A short walk from the house, find Brimmington Park; flanked by a beautiful Grade II listed crescent (Clifton Crescent), with active local residents group.
