Maxted Road, Peckham Rye
Beautifully-extended and immaculately-renovated four double bedroom period terraced house of 1527 square feet, delivering an incredible kitchen/dining room, two bathrooms (one on each upper floor), and a delightful west-facing garden of 55 feet.
You’re really close to Bellenden Road, The Belham Primary School, and to Peckham Rye Station (the station's an eight minute walk). The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School is also a short walk away on Lyndhurst Grove - 10 minutes by foot.
A smart tiled path leads to your front door. From the welcoming neat hall, your formal receptions (these have been opened-up) rest to your right, stretching 25 feet. The front room has bespoke shutters to the lower panes of the big bay window, and a wood-burning stove to the exposed-brick chimney breast. The second reception space has substantial hand-built shelving to its far wall.
Arrive at the rear room via an open doorway in the second reception, or from the foot of the hall (noting the handy under stairs guest w.c.). What a joy! It’s a glorious kitchen/dining room - of 19 feet by over 14 feet - with huge glazed folding doors onto the paved area of the garden. The fitted kitchen is a modern Shaker-style design in two contrasting colours, teamed with stone counters and a ceramic Butler sink, and brick-style ceramic tiling echoes the exposed-brick on the facing wall. High-end integrated appliances are included in the sale.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ve got the first of the double bedrooms straight ahead. This is over 9 feet each way, with a sash window to garden vistas, and a pale carpet to the floor.
Next door is the main bathroom - with frosted sash window and classy white sanitary ware; including a roll-top bath (traditional-style taps and over bath shower fittings here).
Up to the main landing and you have another double bedroom to your left; this one’s over 10 feet by over 9 feet, and next door, a large twin-windowed double bedroom with feature fireplace takes the width of the terrace to the front of the house (over 15 feet by 11 feet).
It’s up to the second floor for the fourth and final bedroom (another Farrow & Ball hue brings on the smiles here), which boasts herringbone parquet floors, skylight Velux windows, and French doors to a Juliet balcony which looks out to your and neighbouring gardens. You’ve got lots of accessible eaves storage up here as well.
Nip down a few stairs for a wonderful walk-in wardrobe (we are loving this!), and a super windowed shower room - with on-trend monochrome detailing and cool herringbone wall tiling.
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. Your local pubs include The Vic, The Prince Albert and The Gowlett.
Venturing just a little further, Lordship Lane is but a 10 minute walk for more options. Rye Lane is close, too, 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 and The Coal Rooms. Camberwell, Nunhead, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill are also no great distance.
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.
