Pelican Estate, Peckham Rye
Smart two double bedroom ex-LA flat of 720 square feet over two floors, in penthouse position, within Crane House. The far-reaching views are incredible up here, and in all weathers. The property is being sold by its owner with no chain.
It’s a top location as well! You are in prime Peckham/Camberwell borderland near loads of brilliant bus routes, and just a short walk from Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2, and on the London Overground network), and Bellenden Road, Warwick Gardens, plus central Camberwell.
A secure-entry main door gets you into the building. There’s a lift (phew!). Take it to the top and find your own front door - which opens directly into a large double-aspect reception room (owing to your cool corner position). This measures 15 feet each way. We should note a useful coat closet by the front door too.
Off the reception is your eat-in kitchen (15 feet by 8 feet) with fitted wall and base units running along the far wall, and more fabulous views (these ones look south).
Up the stairs from the reception room and the final floor hosts a neat windowed bathroom with white suite, and double bedrooms to the front and back of the building. Both have door access to balcony spaces where you'll no doubt be enjoying a regular sunset selfie or several! The whole flat has double-glazed windows and doors.
There are handy local convenience stores and cafes on Peckham Road. And the independent-shopping bit of Bellenden Road is a few minutes by foot - where you’ll find delights such as Ganapati, Artusi, The Sourcing Table, The Victoria Inn and The Begging Bowl, plus Review book store, Gather, Flock & Herd and The General Store.
Rye Lane is also close for more shopping options (fruit & veg markets and supermarkets), Peckham Levels, Peckham a Plex (cinema) and The Bussey and Market Buildings. In the summer months, think rooftop and go vertical - Frank's Cafe and Forza Wine are great.
Central Camberwell is also close - here we like South London Gallery (and Crane’s cafe), The Hermits Cave, The Camberwell Arms, The Crooked Well, Nandine Silk Road and Theo's.
For further social and shopping opportunities - Nunhead, Brixton, Herne Hill and East Dulwich are all local; North Cross Road in ED does a lovely Saturday market.
