Relf Road, Peckham Rye
Who doesn’t love a garden flat? This one double bedroom Victorian conversion pad takes the ground floor of an attractive bay-fronted terrace, on a popular residential Peckham Rye street.
There’s obvious scope to extend once-in, creating a two double bedroom flat - fully exploiting the property and plot.
The property's part-walled east-facing garden is low-maintenance, has gated access at the rear (onto Sternhall Lane: a no-through road), and a seriously pretty timber pergola - complete with established and fruiting grape vine. Residents have permit-parking via Southwark.
What's most local? Walk just five minutes to Bellenden Road, Rye Lane, Peckham Rye Station, and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres.
A neat gated front garden with tiled path sets you back from the pavement. Entering in the main front door, a shared hall greets you (there is just one flat above you). Swing a right for your own front door - in a cheery yellow tone, as the front door.
You open directly into your generous reception room, of over 13 feet by over 11 feet. Window shutters feature to your lower sash panes in the bay, and you’ve got an opened-up style fireplace, with solid iron grate and a granite hearth. Stripped pine floors and alcove shelves further impress.
Adjacent is your bedroom - of over 10 feet by nearly 10 feet, with a substantial alcove closet, and a double-glazed window onto the side-return area of the garden. Continuing the yellow theme, a lovely Little Greene hue graces the walls. Stripped boards feature again.
Next along the hall is the property’s bathroom - with metro tiling, a frosted double-glazed window, and traditional-style white sanitary ware and fittings.
Finally at the foot of the hall is your double-aspect eat-in kitchen (of over 11 feet by over 9 feet). A bank of fitted units are topped with wooden worktops, and teamed with a big ceramic sink under the window.
Your back door delivers you to a generous paved space with glorious pergola. Beyond you have shingle and beds. Street access is a big bonus for gardening, bikes, and BBQ guests!
Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) is a short walk for regular and Overground services.
For green space, Warwick Gardens and Goose Green are close, and Peckham Rye Park and Common is closer still.
The independent shops etc. of Bellenden Road are a short stroll away - Review bookstore, The General Store, and Flock & Herd butchery are a few we recommend you don’t miss.
You needn’t leave the neighbourhood of the evening or weekend! Peckham’s got it all - it’s such a fun social hub for all ages and tastes. Local cafes, restaurants and bars include The Begging Bowl, Made of Dough, Brick Brewery Taproom, The Sourcing Table, Miss Tapas, Ganapati, Levan, Larry’s, The Coal Rooms and Artusi.
Local pubs include The White Horse, The Vic(toria Inn), The Prince Albert, The Montpelier and The Rye Oak.
In the warmer months you can go vertical and enjoy rooftop drinks at Frank’s and also atop The Bussey Building. Rye Lane is really close for high street essentials and supermarkets, as well as Market Place Peckham, Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex. 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.
Other local town centres (for further options) include East Dulwich, Nunhead, Camberwell and Honor Oak.
