Kings Grove, Peckham
Best and final offers invited by midday, Tuesday 24th October.
Charming and chain-free three bedroom mid-Victorian house with loft room and cellar, an east-facing walled rear garden, and a well-established walled front garden.
Potential to extend? Yes! On the ground floor this is most obvious, with the wide side-return next to the kitchen. The second floor could be developed too (both subject to PP).
Find it on a really quiet and tree-lined no-through street, just a three minute walk from Queens Road Peckham Station (Zone 2 and with both London Overground and regular services). Peckham Rye Station is a flat 13 minute stroll.
In the original front door, and you land in the wide and welcoming hall. High ceilings impress. First on your right is your roomy front reception, of 15 feet by nearly 13 feet. A pretty parlour in pink - with picture rail, sash windows, and original (painted) wooden shutters and box work.
Next on your right is the second reception, of 13 feet by nearly 13 feet. It’s a natural dining room, currently set up as an extra bedroom.
The door under the stairs is your route to the useful cellar. We love the stone steps here. A generous (windowed) through-space is a nice spot for enjoying a book (or this could make a good work from home space), then you’ve got a little lobby area with cupboard and windowed bathroom.
Next is your double-aspect kitchen/diner, which stretches over 17 feet. You've got two sash windows (on the two external walls) to verdant vistas, and a part-glazed door out to the mature low-maintenance garden, which has a wide side return.
Up to the first floor and you’ve got a sash-windowed bathroom, and a good double bedroom (of over 13 feet by over 11 feet) to the rear of the house, and a large double bedroom and large single bedroom to the front of the house - these are over 15 feet by over 11 feet, and over 11 feet by over 7 feet.
Open a door on the landing to a cute stairwell to the second floor - this is a casual loft room at the moment, with a Velux window and lots of accessible eaves storage.
The area around QRP Station has its own established scene now - we like Kudu, Smokey Kudu, Beer Rebellion, Blackbird Bakery, Mamma Dough and Well & Fed… all within five minutes of your door! Walk 12 minutes to Rye Lane, 13 to Peckham Rye Station, and 15 to Bellenden Road. Rye Lane is home to hip rooftop bars, a cinema, good street food and handy high street shops. Bellenden Road has lovely restaurants - Artusi, Ganapati and The Begging Bowl. On Blenheim Grove, check out Levan, Larry’s, Il Giardino and The Coal Rooms.
For more options, New Cross (don't miss contemporary art gallery Goodsmiths CCA here), Nunhead, East Dulwich and Deptford are all close.
Little ones? Local nursery and primary provision includes The Villa, Nell Gwynn and Edmund Waller. Local parks include Telegraph Hill, Peckham Rye, Burgess and Southwark. Or jump on the bus for Greenwich Park plus attractions, and The Thames.
