Relf Road, Peckham Rye
Handsome Victorian terrace of 1136 square feet with cute walled ‘city garden’ and street access to it (the garden gate gives access to a no through road behind). It’s 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, a downstairs loo, a wood-burning stove (to the front room), built-in storage, and a generous and double-aspect kitchen/diner stretching almost 20 feet. Permit parking is on-street, for residents. The house offers potential to extend into the loft space - as many other neighbours have done). 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 right. The front room has a lovely bay window with plantation shutters (these are staying) plus bespoke built-in alcove storage. A double-glazed window (you've got double-glazing throughout) from the second reception room looks onto the side return area of the garden.
At the foot of the hall you’ve got the recently-renovated kitchen/diner with folding doors onto the garden. Deep blue painted units and stone counters impress, as do the multiple windows and the exposed brick feature wall. Folding doors open onto the east-facing and low-maintenance garden that has direct access onto the street behind: perfect for bikes and barbies. The side return is fairly wide: handy for cycles/scooters/gardening bits.
Up to the half landing and you’ve a regular double bedroom set at the rear of the house, next to a beautifully fitted out bathroom with skylight and both (free-standing) bath and independent shower. Two further bedrooms rest off the landing proper - the master is over 16 feet by over 11, with a bank of newly-fitted built-in wardrobes plus an alcove cupboard, and the third double is 11 feet by over 10, with a wardrobe to one alcove. The bedrooms to the rear of the building have carpets and the master bedroom has stripped wooden floor boards.
