Lyndhurst Way, Peckham Rye
Extended and detached late-Victorian five bed house of nearly 1900 square feet, with sunny west-facing garden backing onto Warwick Gardens, and off road parking to the front. The property sits on a desirable street within Holly Grove conservation area, just a four minute walk from Peckham Rye Station (you’re even closer to brilliant Bellenden Road). You’re also delightfully close to The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School. Freehold.
In the wide hall, clocking the original floor tiles, the formal double-reception is on your left, and features period fireplaces. The high ceilings also impress. A large square bay (featuring casement windows) invites in the early light and stripped wooden floors are underfoot. The decorative scheme is neutral, as throughout the house. French doors open into the room for access to the kitchen/diner, or access this room from the hall, which stretches 18 feet. The fitted kitchen - which is open-plan to the dining area - is a timeless number with gloss handle-free units and on-trend brick-style tiling. Doors open on two walls onto the pretty garden that’s part-walled and well-established and faces west for pleasing afternoon sun. A downstairs w.c. is accessed off the hall, as is a handy storage cellar.
From the half-landing you access a double bedroom of over 11 feet by over 10 (with built-in wardrobe), and a neat bathroom with simple white suite. From the landing proper are two further double bedrooms and a large single bedroom of over 9 feet by over 7. The master bedroom has another deep bay window. You also have a shower room. Up again for the generous and well-executed loft suite which has large skylight window, built-in storage and an en suite bathroom (again with skylight).
A hot spot. You’re in the heart of Posh Peckham here, with Bellenden Road, Choumert Road, Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane all a short walk for cafes, bars, restaurants, independent shopping, markets and handy high street offerings and banks too. We particularly like local restaurants Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl. Cafe culture is in full swing: Anderson’s, Petitou and Small White Elephant are all close by for cracking coffee and people-watching. Other places worthy of note are Peckham Plex Cinema, Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park. Don’t miss the roof top summer bars and film club! Camberwell and Dulwich are also close for more options.
Kids? Local primary provision is good: local schools include The Belham and Bellenden Primaries, as well as The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. (2-7). Warwick Gardens is your closest green space, as seen from the back of the house, or venture a little further to Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres, or Burgess or Ruskin Parks.
