Maxted Road, Peckham
Enhanced bay-fronted three double bedroom Victorian terrace of 1340 square feet, incorporating an immaculate rear extension (a kitchen/dining room of over 22 feet by over 14 feet) - with folding doors onto the two-tier pro-landscaped garden of circa 40 feet.
You’re blissfully-close to Bellenden Road, The Belham Primary School, and to Peckham Rye Station (the latter's but 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 walled front garden with smart tiled path is a pleasing welcome. From the hall, your wooden-floored formal double-receptions rests to your left. Welcome features here include a designer cast-iron radiator (very nice rads throughout this house!), custom-made shutters to the lower sash-window panes, and a period fireplace.
You access your big and bright kitchen/dining room from the second reception, or via the hall (entering here you’ll note a neat downstairs/guest w.c. to your left, and built-in utility cupboards to your right). The entire space has large profile slate floor tiles. The fitted kitchen is a high-end slick affair, with timeless Shaker-style units in two contrasting hues, teamed with stone counters. The large central island has a breakfast bar/bar to the near end of the room, plus open shelving to one side. A large dining space lies beyond the kitchen area, and folding doors deliver you to the paved area of the low-maintenance and private east-facing garden.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ve got a carpeted double bedroom to the rear - with garden views, and the property’s windowed bathroom - with high-end traditional-style sanitary ware, an over bath shower, T&G detail, and classy wall and floor tiles.
From the main landing, your second bedroom is on your right, at 12 feet by over 9 feet, with pale carpet and a pretty feature fireplace.
The twin-sashed master bedroom takes the width of the terrace; it’s over 15 feet by over 12 feet. Bespoke shutters grace the lower window panes and you have another feature fireplace - this time with a marble surround.
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 cake. On Maxted Road itself we recommend Melange (chocolate shop!) and the Ganapati takeaway. Your local pubs include The Victoria Inn, 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 a short 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.
