Nigel Road, Peckham Rye
A wider and larger than average, enhanced three bed, two bath Victorian terraced house of almost 1500 square feet. Find it on a popular tree-lined residential street that’s close to both Bellenden Road and Rye Lane, just by Rye Lane conservation area. Peckham Rye Station is a 6 minute walk, as is Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. As many in the area have done, you could easily convert the loft if you wanted another couple of rooms. Freehold.
A small, paved front garden sets you back from the pavement where a mature robinia frames the house nicely. Once in, it’s a left into the wooden-floored, through-reception that stretches over 26ft by nearly 15. A (working) Victorian fireplace sits as the focal point of the front reception space, with smart marble surround and attractive tiles. A bay window with sashes fronts the street, while a door at the foot of the room opens into the huge kitchen/diner (you can also access this room via the hall). This is another huge offering at 18ft by 17ft. The side return area has been wisely taken in as internal space, making the most of the plot and creating a bright room that’s family and entertaining-friendly. Three skylight windows throw in the daylight, as do glazed French doors plus additional glazing to the far wall. Gloss white and dark grey wall and base cabinets and pale counters look good. Recessed lighting and a vertical radiator are further welcome features. The private garden is a low-maintenance affair and decked.
Up to the first floor, a master suite sits to the front. It has two windows onto leafy street views. The bedroom space is 13ft by nearly 11. Off this area is a dressing area with generous built-in wardrobes. On through and there’s a neat shower room. A second large double bedroom of 13ft by nearly 11ft is next door. Sitting to the rear of the property is a third small double bedroom and the family bathroom that’s slick in design and offers up both bath and shower. There’s a white contemporary suite and dark tiling in contrast. A double-glazed window too. Loft storage is accessed via the landing.
A gem of a location. Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) is a short walk for regular and Overground services (London Victoria in 13 minutes). Warwick Gardens is close. Peckham Rye is closer still. The indie shops etc. of Bellenden Road are a short stroll away. Review bookstore and Flock & Herd butchery are a couple of our favourites.
You needn’t leave the neighbourhood of the weekend. Local cafes and restaurants include Corals, Pedler, Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Ganapati, Artusi and The Begging Bowl restaurants. Local pubs include The White Horse, The Montpelier and The Rye Hotel. In the warmer months enjoy rooftop drinks at Frank’s and Bussey. The Bussey Building roof also holds a rooftop cinema! Rye Lane is close for high street essentials, banks and a large supermarket. It’s all going on in SE15 but there’s even more in store... including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station, The Peckham Coal Line, and the crowdfunded reopening of Peckham Lido. Local primary schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and Bellenden Primary (Ofsted-rated ‘Good’). The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School for little ones aged 2-7 (Ofsted-rated 'Outstanding') is also a short walk away.
