Peckham Hill Street, Peckham
Gorgeous Georgian semi-detached house over three full floors (plus a generous basement - great for storage and plumbed for utility), with an architectural-treatment, a south-west facing garden and side access, and a screened front garden. Chain free.
Walk just eight minutes to Peckham Rye Station. You’re also really close to Burgess Park and the Surrey Canal path.
Your smart front door is at the side of the house. On entry, you’re greeted by a high-ceilinged first reception - a natural dining room. This lies open-plan to the main formal front reception room (generous, at over 14 feet by over 12 feet), with an old school style radiator, attractive central fireplace, and a pair of beautiful arched-sash windows. Treated wooden floors flow through both spaces.
The kitchen’s off the dining space. It's a sensitive addition to the building’s original footprint, of nearly 11 feet by over 7 feet, galley in style, with smart modern fitted wall and base units. And it has a large skylight plus large glazed door out to the garden. The garden’s a pro-landscaped low-maintenance affair, with mature planting to the beds, and decked and paved areas.
The ground floor is completed by a little lobby (part-glazed door here), where you can access your useful and impressive cellar space (374 square feet across two chambers), a second back door to the garden, and a classy windowed guest w.c.
Take the stairs to the first floor and you’ll first find the property’s bright bathroom. This has both a free-standing bath under the sash window (which is graced with plantation shutters) and a modern independent walk-in shower. Taking the width of the house, to the front of the building, you have a beautifully-big twin-sashed master bedroom. It’s over 14 feet each way, and boasts built-in wardrobes to the ceiling, to the near internal wall.
The second floor (access loft storage from the landing here) hosts two further bedrooms; another stripped-floored big double rests at the front - of over 15 feet by over 12 feet, with a bank of built-in closets. Adjacent is a smaller double of over 12 feet by over 8 feet. Painted boards to the floor and alcove shelves are welcome features.
Peckham Rye Station is an eight minute walk. And you're 12 from Queens Road Peckham Station. Walk one minute for bus links (it’s a 15 minute bus ride to Elephant & Castle for the tube). Walk two minutes for Peckham’s leisure centre for gym and swim, Peckham Library, and a weekly Farmers’ Market.
The Bellenden Road area is a short walk for independent cafes, restaurants and shops. Our favourites include The Sourcing Table, Artusi, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, Review bookstore and Petitou. We also highly rate Levan, Larry’s and Il Giardino. Local public houses include The Montpelier, The Prince Albert and The Vic(toria) Inn.
Rye Lane is really close, too, for trendy destinations such as Peckham Levels, The Market Building and The Bussey Building (yoga classes, exhibitions and more) and Copeland Park, plus handy high street shops, markets and services. Catch a movie at Peckham Plex cinema for just a fiver.
For more options - Camberwell, Nunhead, New Cross, Deptford, Dulwich and Bermondsey are all close.
Beyond Burgess, Warwick Gardens is a local park, and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres are a short walk from your doorstep.
Local schools include Bellenden and The Belham (primaries), and The Villa (nursery and pre-preparatory).
