Nutbrook Street, Peckham Rye
Stylish and extended Victorian terraced house of 1565 square feet, with a south-facing garden, cute courtyard, and south-facing (first floor) terrace too. Over three floors, you’ve got four bedrooms and three reception spaces, plus two bathrooms and a downstairs w.c.
All the box-tickers feature here: high ceilings, stripped floors, a wood-burning stove, sash windows, cast-iron radiators, big bay windows, and wall-spanning folding doors onto the sunniest of gardens.
The location is a belter too; the street’s of the tree-lined residential variety, and you’re just eight minutes by foot from Peckham Rye Station, six minutes from Bellenden Road, and five from The Belham Primary School.
A traditional tiled path makes for a fine entrance. In the front door and first on your left you’ve got a double-reception which stretches over 26 feet. Bespoke shutters grace the lower panes of the bay, and you’ve a lovely big sash onto the courtyard space from the foot of the second reception. Smart alcove storage at either end of the room and painted floor boards (running through the entire ground floor) bring on further smiles.
Past a handy and neat w.c. and you enter into the large (and oh so lovely!) kitchen/diner with Shaker-style fitted units teamed with solid wood counters, brick-style tiling, a breakfast counter/bar and a Butler sink. The dining/reception area is a huge and versatile space taking the width of the house, with large roof light and a modern double-glazed door onto the wee courtyard (with storage).
Folding doors fold all the way open onto the landscaped, decked and lawned sunny garden of over 25 feet.
Upstairs from the half-landing you’ve got a double-aspect double bedroom with French doors onto a decked terrace space - what a treat! Painted floors, more cafe blinds and white walls work great in here.
From the main landing you’ve a large single bedroom with beautifully-big south-facing sash window. Then next door’s the first of your bathrooms - with traditionally-styled sanitary ware plus over bath shower and a pretty panelled pine door.
The master bedroom is adjacent and is over 15 feet by over 12, with bay and sash window, alcove closet (to the ceiling) and stripped floor boards.
Moving up again you’ve got a full bathroom with an independent shower (to the near corner) and a free-standing bath under the south-facing sash window.
Last but not least, find the fourth and final bedroom with skylights and a full sash window, plus a bank of built-in wardrobes (and accessible eaves storage too - for all those bits that belong in the loft). From the skylight windows, you can see all the way from Canary Wharf to St Pauls Cathedral - fabulous on a clear night.
Peckham Rye Station is an easy stroll for regular and Overground services. East Dulwich Station is also close - walk there in 12 minutes. Both are Fare Zone 2.

Rye Lane (currently pedestrianised) delivers the trendiest spots in south London - for example Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building. In the warm months, it’s essential you ascend for rooftop drinks at both of these! There’s also a rooftop cinema most years. Rye Lane is also a great local resource for handy high street shops, fruit and veg stalls, banks and supermarkets.
It’s all going on in SE15 and there’s even more to come - including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line.
