Saskia Mews, Peckham
Completed in 2016, owned just once, this terraced home of 1312 square feet - over three floors and with generous loft storage - sits in a peaceful gated mews with parking and bike storage.
The property has three double bedrooms over its two upper floors; two of these have en suites, and there's an independent bathroom as well plus a downstairs w.c. The big, bright, east-facing reception room opens onto a pretty paved and lawned garden of over 30 feet.
The house has been designed, built and enhanced thoughtfully and to a very high standard throughout, and is fully double-glazed. Mews' residents have off-street parking to the front of their houses. Freehold.
The mews rests just off Lugard Road - which sits on the southerly-side of Queens Road. You're just a five minute walk from Queens Road Peckham Station, for both regular and Overground rail services; Nunhead and Peckham Rye stations are also within a 15 minute walk. Nunhead Green and villagey high street area is a 10 minute stroll for independent shopping. Local primaries include Edmund Waller, John Donne, and Ivydale.
Open your front door and you've got a handy w.c. (windowed) immediately on your left. The stairs are beyond, while the kitchen is set to your right. Lots of soft grey and white fitted wall and base units look and work great here, along with high-end integrated appliances (which are included in the sale).
At the foot of the kitchen - or access via the hall - you land in the oversized reception room of over 17 feet by nearly 15 feet. Solid oak floors flow through here from the kitchen area, and lights are recessed at the sides of the room. Apex glazing incorporating folding doors impresses, and maximises the great daylight throughout the ground floor.
The fenced rear garden has neat paved and lawned areas plus beds, and it gets lots of sun throughout the day.
Up to the first floor you have two large double bedrooms, both with two windows, to the front and rear of the house. The rear bedroom’s over 15 feet by over 10, with a slick en suite shower room. The front bedroom is over 14 feet by over 9. A neat bathroom completes the floor, with a contemporary white suite, and large format grey tiling.
Up stairs again for the biggest bedroom incorporating a dressing area (with built-in closets). A large en suite shower room sits off to the rear corner. All three bedrooms have smart pale carpets. The loft stretches the whole of the house, providing great storage.
The QRP area, by your closest station, is attracting more attention than it’s ever seen, with a growing number of eateries, drinkeries and shopping opportunities; including Kudu restaurant, plus their new tapas place and cocktail bar, Well & Fed, Beer Rebellion, Vintique (fabulous vintage furniture), Blackbird Bakery and Mamma Dough pizzeria.
Walk just seven minutes to our favourite restaurant - making sure to book first: Peckham Bazaar, on Consort Road. Walk west 10-15 minutes for Rye Lane and Bellenden Road and plenty more options. We particularly like Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building & Copeland Park, Forza Wine, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Artusi and Ganapati (the latter has an amazing takeaway too).
Nunhead has your closest high street area. Here we love long-standing businesses Ayres bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop, and the cute Victorian library on Gordon Road. Also El Vermut, Mother Superior and Four Hundred Rabbits. For even more options, New Cross, Deptford, Greenwich and East Dulwich aren’t far.
Green spaces local to you include the Telegraph Hill parks, Peckham Rye Park & Common, Nunhead Green, and Nunhead Cemetery (one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’).
