Oakhurst Grove, East Dulwich
Gorgeous oversized one double bedroom garden flat of 621 square feet (excluding the handy basement), in tip-top order, within a tall bay-fronted Victorian semi-detached house.
There’s obvious potential to extend once-in, creating a two double bedroom flat - fully exploiting the property and plot. Share of Freehold.
The location is a pretty and peaceful residential street in prime East Dulwich/Peckham Rye borderland - close to Goose Green, Peckham Rye Park and Common, Lordship Lane, and to both East Dulwich and Peckham Rye stations (walk 12 and 14 minutes to these respectively).
From the shared hall, your own front door is on your left. A door on your left of your hall opens into the large and bright reception room - of over 15 feet by over 12 feet, with custom-made shutters (to the lovely sash windows in the big square bay), stripped floors, a central fireplace, and coving and picture rail detail.
Ahead from the front door and you’ll find the recently-renovated eat-in kitchen, with plentiful wall and base units (to the ceiling - notably high). Marble counters and splash back over the hob are further welcome features. Open a back door here out to the paved side-return area of the garden. The garden’s a good one: stretching over 45 feet, facing east (equals great early sun), with a large lawn, mature borders, a second paved area (fab for al fresco entertaining) and a useful shed that’s staying.
At the end of the hall your cellar access is to your right. To your left is a smart windowed bathroom, with traditional-style white sanitary ware and fittings, and an over bath shower.
Lastly, find your double-aspect double bedroom - of over 16 feet by over 11 feet. Stripped original floors flow through here from the hall. The garden vistas and designer paint hue to the walls are most pleasing, too.
What’s about? Very locally on East Dulwich Road, you have a handy Tesco store and a classy parade of outlets including a Hop Burns & Black, an ice cream parlour, a bike shop and a chippy. East Dulwich leisure centre is on this stretch too.
You’re in a fine spot here to enjoy all that Peckham and East Dulwich have to offer in terms of shops restaurants, bars, cafes and markets. Some of our favourites include SMBS, Franklin’s, Mons, William Rose butchery, Chener Books plus North Cross Road’s Saturday market - in SE22, and Artusi, Ganapati, Review book store, The White Horse and The Gowlett pub - in SE15. The triangle at the point of Peckham Rye Common is abuzz with eateries such as Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Voodoo Ray’s and Good Neighbour.
Rye Lane is in full-hipster-flight, with the likes of Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park - which are bursting with trendy eateries, drinkeries, rooftop bars, yoga classes and the like. There’s even a craft sake place! And Peckham Plex Cinema is dedicated to films for a fiver.
Nunhead is an easy walk for independent staples such as FC Soper (wet fish shop) and Ayres (bakery). El Vermut, Goodcup, Kudu Grill and Mother Superior are good here as well.
For further options, you’re not far from Camberwell, Herne Hill and Dulwich Village.
