Maxted Road, Peckham Rye
Best and final offers invited by 6pm, Monday 8 February 2021.
Beautifully-extended bay-fronted period terraced Freehold house of well over 1500 square feet, delivering an incredible main kitchen/reception room set to the rear of the house, three bathrooms (two are en suite) and four double bedrooms; inclusive of a large master suite to the second floor (a generous loft conversion), and a smart west-facing garden of almost 50 feet.
The house has umpteen welcome features! Some of our favourites include the amazing glazing (sitting over, and at the foot of what was once the side return area), plus exposed brick detail, and the recessed lighting plus the neat pale decorative scheme throughout the house.
You’re delightfully-close to Bellenden Road, The Belham Primary School, and Peckham Rye Station (walk three, two and eight minutes to these). The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School is also a short walk away on Lyndhurst Grove - 11 minutes by foot.
In your front door and from the hall (where you’ll find a downstairs w.c. with cool ‘pocket’ door plus an under stairs cloak cupboard), gorgeous glazed framed doors open into the through-reception which stretches 24 feet. It’s quite the show-opener.
The front reception area is your traditional front living room - great for relaxing with a book or the TV! The second reception space is an obvious dining space - which runs through to the sensational rear extension.
The big and bright back room’s over 25 feet by nearly 15 and hosts a delightful custom-made solid wood fitted kitchen painted in a navy hue, with ceramic Butler sink and central island - incorporating a breakfast bar/bar - teamed with stone counters. You’ve got flagstone floors too and under floor heating. What joy!
Beyond the kitchen area you have further reception space onto the decked area of the garden - folding doors deliver you out here. Enjoy plenty of afternoon sun, and a healthy lawn plus large shed in front of the rear wall.
Up to the half-landing and at the rear of the house is a generous double bedroom with skylight windows, as well as a regular one to garden vistas. The room benefits from a neat en suite shower room with contemporary fittings.
From the main landing you have two further doubles and a main bathroom with built-in storage, a tall heated towel rail, modern fittings and an over bath shower.
The master suite awaits - up the stairs on the second floor. It’s wonderfully-light thanks to its westerly-orientation and two skylight windows. An en suite shower room (with another skylight window) plus plenty of accessible eaves storage complete the property tour.
Your local and lovely high street area is Bellenden Road. Established favourites are Flock & Herd butchery, Review book store, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Made of Dough and Artusi. For coffee and cake you have a few cafes to choose from very locally - such as Petitou, Anderson’s and Small White Elephant on Bellenden and Choumert Roads. On Maxted Road itself we recommend Melange (it’s a chocolate shop!) and the Ganapati takeaway.
Venturing just a little further, Lordship Lane is but a ten 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 and banks. Peckham Plex cinema is a must-go-to, too (films for under a fiver).
Peckham Rye station (Fare Zone 2) will get you to work or to friends/engagements in central London in a jiffy, and there’s exciting regeneration in this area (The Peckham Coal Line linear park for example - the first stages of which start early 2021 - exciting!) as well as more places to eat and drink. Levan, Tonkotsu, Peckham Springs and The Coal Rooms are particularly nice choices.
Camberwell, Nunhead, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill are also no great distance for more options.
Local parks and green spaces include Warwick Gardens, Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common and Goose Green.
