Lyndhurst Grove, Peckham Rye
A handsome Victorian townhouse of almost 1900 square feet, on one of the prettiest and leafiest streets within Holly Grove Conservation Area.
Walk just seven minutes to Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2). You're also pleasingly close to The Villa Nursery, Warwick Gardens and Bellenden Road.
The property has been sympathetically refurbished and updated by the current owner - since 2011 - with welcome features including a wood-burning stove, and plenty of built-in clothes and book storage.
The house offers up two entrances, four double bedroomsm (all doubles), four generous reception spaces, two bathrooms and a separate w.c. Handily, the top floor of the house can be sectioned off, should this suit your setup. Your accompanying mature garden stretches over 90 feet.
Take a few stone steps to the main front door and open into the high-ceilinged hall. It's a left into the double-reception, with painted wooden window shutters, smart bespoke shelving in the alcoves, and a cast-iron (working) fireplace with marble surround. You can easily set up a work from home space (with garden vistas) in the rear reception.
The main bathroom is on this floor, with white suite and deep blue walls, brick-style ceramic wall tiling, built-in storage cupboards, and a smashing view (via two landscape windows) down the entire length of the garden. More gorgeous gardens surround yours to all sides.
Down to the lower ground floor and you’ll find two reception spaces. Both 15 feet by 12 feet, with solid wood floors. A wood-burning stove sits in the reception to the front of the house, while French doors open from the connecting dining room. On through to the double-aspect kitchen (noting the big larder cupboard on your way) which gives garden views and has fetching Moroccan tiles to the floor, plus smart white wall and base units teamed with treated wooden counters.
The first floor is home to two double bedrooms. The master takes the width of the property at over 15 feet (by 12) and has generous built-in wardrobes to one wall. Adjacent is a second double with alcove cupboard and more pretty garden views. A clever under stairs w.c with fancy wall tiles is a great decision.
Upstairs again and a second master bedroom sits to the front (this is currently in use as an upstairs reception room - as mentioned earlier, you can use this floor independently - fab for teenagers/guests), and the fourth double bedroom sits to the rear. A modern shower room completes the floor.
The generous garden is landscaped, well-stocked and well-established, with paved and decked areas and even a pond.
Locally, the school provision is excellent. Local families use The Villa Nursery (which also has a Pre-Prep. School attached) and Lyndhurst, The Belham and Bellenden Primary Schools, as well as The Dulwich independent schools - which are just a short drive away.
Warwick Gardens is mere steps away (entrance on Azenby Road) with a popular playground, and big trees which are a great refuge when it’s very sunny. Bellenden Road is a short walk for such delights as The Begging Bowl, Artusi, Ganapati, the Sourcing Table, The General Store and Review (the best book shop around).
Choumert Road is also close for lovely neighborhood-style spots, like Petitou cafe and The Montpelier pub. Rye Lane is also very local for Peckham Plex Cinema, 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. And watch out for a new linear park: The Peckham Coal Line.
