Oglander Road, Peckham Rye
Optimised bay-fronted Victorian terrace of 1712 square feet, incorporating deftly-done rear and loft extensions, and delivering five double bedrooms, a full bathroom and a shower room, a downstairs guest w.c. and loads of flexible reception space.
A well-stocked rear garden extends over 20 feet; access this from wall-spanning folding doors from your huge kitchen/reception.
The street? Is of the leafy residential variety (handsome Victorian housing stock as far as the eye can see!), and puts you pleasingly-close to The Belham Primary School and to Bellenden Road. Walk eight minutes to Peckham Rye Station and nine to East Dulwich Station.
From the hall, two oak-floored formal reception rooms rest to your left. These are over 14 feet by over 11 feet, and over 11 feet by over 9 feet. The front room is graced with coving and ceiling rose detail, timber-framed double-glazed sash windows, and a (working) wood-burner.
The second reception room is a natural formal dining room, in a dreamy navy hue, with custom-made alcove storage and opened-up fireplace (which makes a great log-store).
Access the huge rear kitchen/reception room via reception two, or via the hall (via the hall you'll note a handy guest w.c. and a utility room); with large roof lights over the former side-return space, it runs over 27 feet by over 14 feet, and was completed in 2017. It’s a slick affair with large profile floor tiles, a timeless Shaker-style, German-built kitchen with central island/bar, Siemens appliances, WiFi ovens and underfloor heating (with nest controller).
Up to the first floor and from your half-landing you’ve got the main bathroom to your left (with cool ‘pocket’ door, and an independent shower plus contemporary sanitary ware) and your first bedroom ahead - this is over 12 feet by over 8 feet and gives good garden views.
From the main landing, find a generous twin-sashed master bedroom across the front (this is 15 feet by over 11 feet, with stripped and treated floor boards, built-in closets to both alcoves, and a beautiful feature fireplace), and another double bedroom of over 11 feet by over 9 feet.
The second floor (completed in 2020) provides two further double bedrooms - of 13 feet by over 8 feet, and over 15 feet by over 14 feet, and a modern and windowed shower room. The largest top bedroom boasts a floating glass Juliet balcony, two large skylights (which open in and out), and lots of accessible eaves storage.
Local green spaces are Goose Green, Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres, and Warwick Gardens. Keeping fit? East Dulwich leisure centre (gym and pool) is a short walk away or you’re just a little further from Peckham and Camberwell’s pools and gyms. British Military Fitness also run group sessions on Peckham Rye.
Gastronomically, you are in a superb spot, with the likes of Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl and Levan within a brief stroll. Further foodie and social options are found locally on Rye Lane (walk 10 or so minutes): Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex as some examples.
Local pubs include The Victoria Inn, The Montpelier, The Prince Albert and The Gowlett. For more options, East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane is close, as is central Camberwell.
Your local primaries include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust), St John’s & St Clements, Bellenden and Goose Green. The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School for little ones (2-7) is also close by and very popular. Little Jungle Nursery is also well-liked. For bigger ones, The Charter School East Dulwich is a short walk.
