Maxted Road, Peckham Rye

1456 square feet of extended bay-fronted Victorian terrace and sunny south-west facing garden, close to The Belham School and Bellenden Road. 

The property has four bedrooms and both bath and shower rooms to the upper floors, and a double-reception plus kitchen/diner and guest w.c. to the ground floor. The house is double-glazed throughout and new carpets have recently been fitted. Walk just eight minutes to Peckham Rye Station. 

A neat walled front garden sets you from the pavement. In the front door and the stairs are set ahead of you. The oak-floored through-receptions rest to your right and are over 14 feet by 11 feet and over 10 feet by over 9. Bespoke shutters are fitted to the front bay. 

A downstairs w.c. is in under-stairs position, and next to this you’ve the door to the lovely 19-feet-long double-aspect kitchen/diner with another bay window. The kitchen units are modern in style, in gloss-white, teamed with solid wood worktops and a zingy green glass splash back. You might like to extend over the side-return (as is a particularly popular decision on the street). 

Slide open double-glazed doors at the dining end (foot) of the room to the decked area of the garden - a delightful spot for buddies and a BBQ. The garden has a healthy lawn beyond plus shingle beyond that, and generous established borders. 

Up to the first floor and at the back of the house is a carpeted double bedroom with garden vistas. Next door is a modern windowed bathroom with contemporary white sanitary ware, built-in storage, and an over bath shower. 

From the main landing the master bedroom is at the front of the house - this is over 15 feet by over 11 feet and has big built-in closets. And next door’s a third double of 10 feet each way, with a grey accent wall. 

Up the second floor and there’s an oversized and windowed shower room to the rear - with underfloor heating, a huge walk-in shower, under-basin storage, contemporary fittings, and large profile wall and floor tiling. 

Lastly you’ll find the huge top bedroom, with Juliet balcony and skylight windows, custom-made storage for clothes and linen, and accessible eaves storage. 

What a spot! Your lovely local high street area is Bellenden Road. Established favourites are Flock & Herd butchery, Review book store, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Made of Dough and Artusi. 

Petitou cafe just around the corner on Choumert Road is perfect for people-watching with your coffee and croissant. 

On Maxted Road itself we recommend Melange (a chocolate shop) and the Ganapati takeaway (which is just next door). Your local pubs include The Vic, The Prince Albert, The Montpelier and The Gowlett. 

Lordship Lane is but a 10 minute walk for more options. And Rye Lane is close as well - for hip destinations such as The Bussey Building and Peckham Levels, alongside handy high street shops, markets and banks. And great eateries such as Levan, Tonkotsu, Forza Wine and The Coal Rooms. 

Camberwell, Nunhead, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill are also easy to reach. 

Peckham Rye station (Fare Zone 2) will get you to work or to friends/engagements in central London very easily, and there’s exciting regeneration in this area (The Peckham Coal Line linear park for example - the first stages are underway). 

Local parks and green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common and Goose Green.

Local schools beyond The Belham are Bellenden (another primary), The Charter School East Dulwich (secondary) and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School (2-7).
