Muschamp Road, Peckham Rye
Viewings from Saturday 3rd July 2021.
Beautifully-renovated five double bedroom bay-fronted Victorian semi with both bath and shower rooms, and a smart and sensitive architectural treatment.
Welcome features are at every pivot; these include herringbone parquet floors, a deVOL kitchen, an independent utility room (with side door access), a basement and a guest w.c. A generous, mature south-west facing garden and gated side access complete the package.
Find the deftly-designed dream-residence on a quiet residential side street in leafy Peckham Rye/East Dulwich borderland, very near to Goose Green - with its pretty London plane trees.
Walk all of nine minutes to East Dulwich Station, and 10 to Peckham Rye Station. Both are Fare Zone 2. Bellenden Road is also a short stroll for independent shopping and excellent restaurants. Lordship Lane is wonderfully-local as well.
A front garden sets the house back from the pavement. In the front door and you’re greeted by a pleasing entrance hall with high ceilings. The stairs lead off to your left. Round to your right you’ve got a formal front reception of over 13 feet by over 12 feet. Bespoke window shutters to the double-glazed sash windows in the bay, a central fireplace, and old school style radiators all impress.
Beyond the living room is a deep custom-made hall cupboard, a guest w.c. (with House of Hackney wallpaper) and an independent utility room, with plumbing and slick granite counters. A side door here connects you with the side/street entrance to the garden.
A useful cellar is accessed under the stairs and here at the foot of the hall - via cool sliding oversized 'pocket' doors - you enter the wonderful rear room of 18 feet by 16 feet, which incorporates kitchen, dining and living spaces.
The deVOL kitchen is one to write home about! Enjoy an island, San Simone Quartzite surfaces, and timeless Shaker-style units graced with F&B's ‘Carriage Green’.
The entire room’s a notably bright one owing to its south-westerly orientation plus full-glazing over the former side-return space. On-trend Crittall-style doors span the entire rear wall and reach right up to the ceiling, making the very most of the favourable orientation, and these open onto a generous rear patio. The garden provides all-day sun and is well-established with lawn and borders, plus a handy shed that’s staying.
Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ll find the first of five double bedrooms - to verdant garden views (gardens surround yours on all sides) - at the rear of the building. Next door is the property’s main bathroom; with underfloor heating, sash window, modern fittings, over-bath shower and ceramic herringbone wall tiles.
Up to the landing proper and another double bedroom rests to your left (11 feet by over 10 feet) with soft carpet to the floor. The master bedroom takes the width of the house. It’s over 16 feet by over 13 feet, with engineered wood floors, a big bay window, ceiling rose, feature fireplace, old school style radiators and big built-in closets to each alcove.
Moving up to the second floor you have another sunny double to the rear - of over 13 feet by over 10 feet, an immaculate windowed shower room (with underfloor heating once again), and a big and bright loft-conversion bedroom with built-in closet, accessible eaves storage, a pair of skylight windows (to skyline views) and a Juliet balcony too.
You’re in an unbeatable spot here for enjoying Peckham and East Dulwich’s centres... easy shopping and socialising, and plenty of park-life too: Goose Green, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Dulwich Park, Lettsom Gardens, Ruskin Park and Horniman Gardens are all close.
You also have several excellent schools within really close proximity. Local primaries include The Belham, St John’s & St Clements, Goose Green and Bellenden. Your most-local secondary is The Charter School East Dulwich.
The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School (for little ones aged 2-7) is also close by and very popular. Little Jungle Nursery is also well-liked.
On Peckham Rye's Bellenden Road you’ll become very friendly with Artusi, Ganapati (plus takeaway), The Begging Bowl, Flock & Herd butchery, and Review (our favourite book store in London!). Melange on Maxted Road is an important mention for chocoholics too. The Gowlett is a nice local pub with wood-fired pizzas.
For general high street offerings and banks (plus fruit and veg stalls and street food vans), Rye Lane's not far - where you'll also find the hippest destinations such as Forza Wine, Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building.
In SE22, Lordship Lane has fabulous independent and specialist grocery and bottle-shopping, restaurants and pubs (we like Terroirs, EDT, Franklins and The Cheese Block to name a handful, as well as the Picturehouse cinema). And North Cross Road’s foodie craftsy Saturday market makes Saturday brunch or lunch a doddle for under a tenner.
