Relf Road, Peckham Rye
Enhanced and modernised four double bed, two bath Victorian terraced house with east-facing and part-walled ‘city’ garden with street access, on a pretty residential street that’s just a 5 minute walk from both Bellenden Road and Peckham Rye Station. Permit parking is on-street, for residents. Freehold.
A small and walled front garden with tiled path sets you back from the pavement and gives you a moment or two to take in the mature wisteria - gracing the front of the house - before reaching the front door. Once in the hallway, the double-reception with original doors and solid wood floors, is on your right. The front room has a lovely bay window with plantation shutters (they’re staying - and also feature in the second dining room, main bathroom and bedrooms one to three) plus built-in alcove shelving and cupboards, and an attractive central fireplace. The second reception is a natural formal dining room, in a classy blue hue, with an old school style radiator. A sash window from here looks onto the side return area of the garden. On through the hallway, past the under-stairs cupboard, and you land in the double-aspect and extended kitchen/diner. It extends over 20 feet, with part-glazed French doors opening out onto the low-maintenance garden that has direct access onto the street behind. Perfect for bikes and barbies. The garden’s a respectable 15 feet in length from the back of the house. The side return is fairly wide so great for stashing cycles/scooters/gardening bits. The kitchen is a timeless pale fitted number, teamed with contrasting wooden counters and ceramic brick-style ceramic wall tiling. Solid wood floors (that run the length of the room) and recessed lights are further welcome decisions.
Up to the half landing and you arrive at the first double bedroom (currently enjoyed as a generous home office) of 11 feet by nearly 9, and an immaculate and recently-renovated bathroom with Fired Earth tiles, smart white suite and over bath shower. We love the marble and double basin detailing. Up a few stairs to the landing proper for the master bedroom of 15 feet by over 11, and another double bedroom; both have old school style radiators. All the bedrooms throughout the house have solid wood floors and recessed lighting.
Up to the second floor and you’ll find a fourth and double-aspect double bedroom (this time it’s 13 feet by over 8) and the property’s second bathroom. This one has a contemporary white suite (over bath shower too) and Fired Earth tiles in brick-style to the walls. A couple of pleasing surprises await in the form of built-in storage adjacent to the bathroom (which includes cupboarding and plumbing for the washing machine), and a large playroom - please note it has restricted height - with skylight windows (two) and generous and accessible eaves storage.
Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) is a short walk for regular and Overground services. Green space? Warwick Gardens is close, and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres is closer still. The independent shops etc. of Bellenden Road are a short stroll away. Review bookstore and Flock & Herd butchery are a couple we recommend you don’t miss.
You needn’t leave the neighbourhood of the evening or weekend! It’s a wonderful social hub. Local cafes and restaurants include Anderson’s, Pedler, Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Ganapati and Artusi restaurants. Local pubs include The White Horse, The Montpelier and The Rye Hotel.
In the warmer months you can indulge in rooftop drinks at Frank’s and also atop The Bussey Building. The latter also holds a rooftop cinema! Rye Lane is close for high street essentials, banks and a large supermarket, as well as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex. It’s all going on in SE15 as recent press coverage attests, and there’s even more to come, including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line. Local primary schools include Bellenden Primary and The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust). The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School for little ones aged 2-7 is also a short walk away.
