Lyndhurst Grove, Peckham Rye
Smart, bright and immaculately presented bay-fronted Victorian terrace of nearly 1500 square feet, with a massive and impressive ground floor extension, three big bedrooms and one little one/home office, and a pretty, low-maintenance lawned garden of 37 feet.
You’re located within lovely and leafy Holly Grove Conservation Area - with Peckham Rye Station, Bellenden Road, and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7) all just a short walk away. The house is being sold without a chain.
There’s a neat walled front garden. Open into the hall and your formal (opened-up) double receptions rest to your left. The front room is over 14 feet by over 12 feet, with a wood-burner, and custom-made shutters to the big bay. Stripped floor boards feature underfoot, and you’ve got good fixed alcove storage and shelving, plus a pretty feature fireplace (in the second reception room).
Enter the rear main room via your second reception, or from the hall (noting the handy downstairs w.c.) - it stretches over 27 feet by over 15 feet, and incorporates generous kitchen and dining spaces. The fitted kitchen occupies the near end of the room - with timeless Shaker-style units in a soft grey (paired with quartz marble counters and splash back), a sizeable food pantry and a large central island. Further features are length-spanning skylights, large format floor tiles, under floor heating, and wall-spanning folding doors to the decked area of the garden. A healthy lawn follows, with beautiful mature trees in the backdrop.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ve got the property’s sash-windowed bathroom (with both freestanding cast iron roll-top bath and an independent walk-in shower) and the first of the bedrooms. We love the roofline ceiling here, and the verdant vistas over the garden and neighbouring surrounding gardens, as well as views of the Shard.
From the main landing (where you can access useful loft space), turn right for another bedroom; this one’s 12 feet by over 10 feet, with fully integrated fitted wardrobes. Then to the front of the house is another double - of over 14 feet by over 10 feet, again with fitted wardrobes, and a single/nursery/home office (of over 9 feet by over 5 feet). If you preferred, you could take the wall out here to create a larger front bedroom - as it was when built.
Locally, Bellenden and Choumert Roads have a super selection of restaurants and independent shops. We love Review bookstore, The Begging Bowl, Artusi, Miss Tapas, The General Store, Petitou and The Sourcing Table in particular.
For banks and building societies, high street shops and markets, Rye Lane is just a little further, and is home to The Bussey Building and Copeland Park (more great places to eat plus a summer-open rooftop bar and cinema), Peckham Plex Cinema, Bold Tendencies and Frank’s Bar. Local watering holes include The Montpelier and The Vic(toria) Inn.
Central Camberwell is also close for more options - we like The Camberwell Arms, South London Gallery, Gladwell’s, Toad bakery, Crane’s Kitchen, Veraison Wines and Theo’s.
Commuting is easy with Peckham Rye (zone 2) so close, and with mainline services to London Bridge, Blackfriars and Victoria, as well as Overground trains (change at Canada Water for Canary Wharf).
Camberwell and Peckham both have good leisure centres and boutique gyms and yoga studios too. The South London Gallery is close, and Dulwich Picture Gallery just a short drive.
Local schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and Lyndhurst primaries.
Green space is easily landed upon at Warwick Gardens, just a few minutes from your door. And Peckham Rye Park and Common, Goose Green, Burgess and Ruskin Parks are all close too, with Dulwich and Greenwich Parks but a short drive.
