Relf Road, Peckham Rye
Big, beautifully-presented and extended four double bed, two bath Victorian terraced house with east-facing and part-walled city garden with street access (the garden gate gives access to a no through road behind), on a pretty residential street that’s just a 5 minute walk from both Bellenden Road and Peckham Rye Station. Welcome features include stripped floors, period fireplaces, built-in storage, neutral decor, and a big double-aspect kitchen/diner - with folding doors stretching over 20 feet. Permit parking is on-street, for residents. Freehold.
A small and walled front garden sets you back from the pavement. Once in the hall, the double-reception with original and interconnecting doors is on your left. The front room has a lovely bay window with plantation shutters (these are staying, and also feature in the master bedroom) plus bespoke built-in alcove storage. A sash window from the second reception room looks onto the side return area of the garden. On through the hallway, past the under-stairs cupboard, and you land in the bright kitchen/diner. The kitchen, complete with underfloor heating, is a gloss white fitted number, partnered with solid wood counters. Double-glazed folding doors open onto the low-maintenance garden that has direct access onto the street behind. Perfect for bikes and barbies. The side return is fairly wide so great for stashing cycles/scooters/gardening bits.
Up to the half landing and a double bedroom sits to the rear, of over 14 feet by over 8. Recessed lighting and a large sash window are head-nodders. Adjacent is the main bathroom with a simple white suite, brick-style tiling, sash window, and over bath shower. From the main landing you have the master bedroom to the front of the house, at over 15 feet by over 11, with built-in wardrobes, and another double bedroom next door (over 10 feet by over 9 feet). It’s up again for the well-executed loft extension section of the house. First up’s a double-aspect bedroom set to the rear of the house. A large shower room is next door, with a contemporary white suite and brick-style tiling. Clever and generous storage is built-in and accessed from the landing area, with plumbing for washing machine.
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! Peckham’s got it all - 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 Vic(toria Inn), The Montpelier and The Rye Hotel.
In the warmer months you can go vertical and enjoy rooftop drinks at Frank’s and also atop The Bussey Building. The latter also holds a rooftop cinema. Rye Lane is really 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.
