Lyndhurst Grove, Peckham Rye
Delightful and well-positioned three storey house of over 2000 square feet with four double bedrooms, winning-at-life close to amazing schools and a thriving community. Chain free.
This handsome home combines all the character of the Victorian houses which line this attractive street, and the style and practicality of modern living; we’re particularly impressed with the huge penthouse-like master suite at the top of the house, complete with dressing area, en suite and private balcony - from which you can enjoy a morning tea or evening tipple.
You have three full floors in total: delivering four big double bedrooms and three bathrooms to the upper floors, and two reception spaces, a downstairs w.c. and a large open-plan kitchen to the ground floor. A well-established garden of 45 feet and off-street parking complete the package.
We should also mention the notable exceptionally-green outlook from the rear of the house - gardens, trees and birdlife galore to all sides! It’s hard to believe you’re in Zone 2/so close to the City.
The location is a favoured Peckham Rye street within leafy Holly Grove Conservation Area, just a five minute walk from Peckham Rye Station, really near Bellenden Road, and a short walk or cycle from The Villa Nursery, The Belham Primary, and good secondary schools. Warwick Gardens is also on your doorstep.
From your generous hall, a formal front reception rests to your right. It’s over 15 feet by over 12 feet, with a bay window and central fireplace. A neat downstairs w.c. and utility room is by the stairs. Wooden floors flow through to the rear reception of over 17 feet by over 11 feet (with French doors to the side return area of the garden), then these give way to practical tiles and underfloor heating in the spacious double-aspect kitchen/diner. The kitchen has modern fitted units and smart quartz counters.
Your garden - accessed via wall-spanning folding doors - is well-stocked and mature, with a fruit-bearing fig tree, an established lawn, and a vine-covered arbour where you can chill out with a good book.
Up to the first floor and to the front of the house you have a bay-fronted bedroom of over 16 feet by over 10 feet, with a neat en suite shower room.
Along the corridor and you’ll land upon another large double (this one’s over 13 feet by over 11 feet), then a windowed family bathroom (note the skylight window here, as well as the sash one), then a third bedroom with roof-slope ceiling, and double-glazed French doors/Juliet balcony.
The second floor is where you’ll find the huge master suite with a full (skylit) en suite bathroom, three skylight windows, a dressing area, and two sets of double doors onto a wide balcony.
Bellenden Road is a brief stroll - for such delights as The Begging Bowl, Artusi, The Sourcing Table, Ganapati, Flock & Herd, The General Store and Review (the best book store around).
Choumert Road and Blenheim Grove are also close - for Dovedales and Petitou cafes, and The Montpelier pub and Levan restaurant. Rye Lane is also very local - for fruit and veg stalls, Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, and handy high street offerings (supermarkets, banks, Boots and the like).
Peckham’s already a hot spot to call home, but there’s even more to come! Peckham Rye Station, for example, is undergoing substantial refurbishment and improvement, as is the area immediately surrounding it. A linear park is even planned: The Peckham Coal Line.
For more options, Camberwell and East Dulwich are local. And your local parks (beyond Warwick Gardens) include Ruskin Park, Lettsom Gardens, and Peckham Rye Park and Common.
