Lyndhurst Grove, Peckham Rye
Impressively-refurbished four double bed, two bath Victorian terraced house of over 2000 square feet over three floors, incorporating a huge double-aspect master bedroom of over 25 feet. You also have a south-facing (and very private) garden backing onto cracking green views, and a south-facing roof terrace. Welcome features include custom-built storage throughout the house, traditional cast iron radiators, and a stylish decorative scheme.
Lyndhurst Grove runs from SE5’s Camberwell Grove down to SE15’s Lyndhurst Way; walk just 10 minutes to either Denmark Hill or Peckham Rye stations - the house sits between the two - plus the central areas of Camberwell and Peckham. Permit parking is available on-street. Freehold.
Pop up a few stairs to the front door and into the hall, immediately noting the pleasingly-high ceilings and wide stair; the property’s proportions are notably-generous throughout. Off to your right is the huge through-reception stretching over 27ft, with on-trend pocket-door and large front bay window. This is a natural and easy entertaining space with a delighting blend of period and newer features, and with a wood-burning stove (with marble surround fireplace) and smart glazed doors out to the wide side return area of the garden.
There’s a ground floor w.c. on this floor too and beyond this, find the sleek refurbished double-aspect kitchen/diner. The fitted kitchen offers extensive bespoke cupboard and counter space and appliances are integrated. Set at the garden-end is a stylish south-facing dining space with glazing overhead and industrial-style doors to the garden.
The tropical-themed garden is decked in the main and low-maintenance by design. You’re facing south here so will find yourself out here a lot (that’s if you’re not on the roof terrace)!
Up to the half landing and a big double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 10 feet sits to the rear, with more gorgeous green views. Next door is a slick shower room with a large walk-in shower. Up to the landing and to your left is a huge bathroom (once a bedroom) that’s also ensuite to the front bedroom. The front bedroom is over 17 feet by over 12, with ornate coving and recessed lighting, a bank of wardrobes to one wall, and two sash windows (double-glazed - enjoy double-glazing throughout the house, and the first and second floors are sound-insulated as well).
Up the stairs again and you’ll first find a third double bedroom with folding doors to spectacular green views and your very sunny roof terrace. It’s over 12 feet by over 10. This room could also be used as a luxury study, or lucky guest/au pair room. Next door is a neat w.c. with a skylight window. Up again for the houses’s crowning glory: the double-aspect master bedroom - which could be separated into two rooms should you prefer.
A top location in all senses. You have great views looking north to the London skyline, for example. Schools-wise, The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. (2-7) and Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill primaries are very local, as is The Belham (run by Dulwich Educational Trust).
For green space, head to Ruskin Park, Lettsom Gardens, Lucas Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Burgess Park.
