North Cross Road, East Dulwich
Offers in excess of £600,000.
Architect-designed two bed (and two bath) duplex apartment in an excellent location, with its own front door. The building has a sunny corner position, with the delightful Jeannie Avent Gallery set to the ground floor. Walk just 10 minutes to East Dulwich Station. Leasehold.
The property has an impressive and cleverly-executed footprint of 880 square feet. Our favourite decision is the wow-factor double-height reception room, with a full length internal glass viewing window from the top floor landing looking down, and with smashing views from the room's three sash external windows.
North Cross Road is a mixed residential/smart-commercial locale leading to Lordship Lane, with wonderful offerings (an independent book shop, cute eateries, a florist, a high-end hairdresser etc.) and a regular foodie/creative Saturday market.
You enter the handsome Victorian building through your own private front door, on the ground floor. Take the smart stairwell here (crisp white walls setting the scene…) to the second floor landing, where the property properly unfolds. The main bathroom is your first find, to your right. This is sash-windowed, with a white suite, heated towel rail, and large profile tiling.
Past built-in storage cupboards on the landing, and you land in your reception room - it’s a roomy one, at 19 feet by 10 feet. The cubic square feet seriously impress here. Enjoy loft-living vibes with your double-height ceiling (there’s handy storage cupboards set up high too). The kitchen is accessed from this room - with pocket door, sash window, modern white fitted units, integrated appliances, and room for table and chairs.
It’s up to the third floor for your two bedrooms - both are doubles, with dark grey carpets. A neat contemporary shower room (accessed from the landing space) completes the floor, and tour.
What a spot! As well as having North Cross Road and Lordship Lane on your doorstep, you’re within easy walking distance of Peckham’s Bellenden Road and Rye Lane. Goose Green and Peckham Rye Park and Common are also close. East Dulwich leisure centre is nearby for pool, gym and classes. And there are two local cinemas to choose from: a Picturehouse one on Lordship Lane, and an independent one on Rye Lane (Peckham Plex).
Local pubs include The Palmerston, The Clocktower, The Great Exhibition, The EDT, and The Actress and The Bishop(!).
Grocery shopping? On Lordship Lane we like SMBS, The Cheese Block, Mons and William Rose (the latter gets quite the queue!). There’s an M&S Food Hall also.
If you’re eating out, we recommend locally: Monkatsu and Thai Corner Cafe (both on North Cross Road), Banh Banh, Peckham Bazaar, The Begging Bowl, Artusi, The Coal Rooms, Ganapati, Miss Tapas, Mr Bao, Levan and Franklins.
For more options, you’re close to Nunhead, Camberwell, Dulwich Village and Herne Hill.
