Solomons Passage, Peckham Rye
Big and bright one bed ex-LA flat with its own front door and good storage. Find it on the top floor, with neighbours to one side only. The apartment has been thoughtfully and beautifully renovated and decorated under its current ownership - the kitchen and bathroom are particular highlights, as is the hand-laid reclaimed block parquet herringbone floor.
The position is just brilliant and tough to beat: you face Peckham Rye Park and Common’s glorious 113 acres. The town centres of Nunhead, Peckham and East Dulwich are all a short walk. For stations, walk to Peckham Rye or Nunhead stations in under 15 minutes. And there are plenty of useful bus routes on your doorstep.
The flat - of a very respectable size of 518 square feet - is on the third and final floor. Through your own front door and a large cupboard rests to your right. To your left on entry, is the property’s windowed bathroom - with white sanitary ware, an over bath shower, and cool square tiling plus inset shelves. Another large storage cupboard is accessed from the hall, next door to the bathroom.
Next on your right is your neat, eat-in kitchen - with custom-built cupboard fronts and open-shelf detail.
Taking full advantage of the delightful park vistas; your bedroom and reception room are set to the front of the flat. Your double bedroom is over 15 feet by over 8 feet, with two large windows (the windows throughout the flat are double-glazed). Your reception room is 15 feet by nearly 11 feet, again with two windows. There’s ample space to arrange seating and dining, or seating and WFH zones.
A little bit of history: the street got its name from Peckham Rye's park keeper - Israel Solomon - who used to live here and looked after the street's greenhouses and their pineapples.
You are slap bang in the middle of Peckham, East Dulwich and Nunhead - near lots of independent bars, restaurants, cafes, markets and more. In Peckham we love Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl, The General Store, Flock & Herd and Artusi. In East Dulwich, check out the North Cross Road Saturday Market, SMBS, The Cheese Block and the Picturehouse cinema. Nunhead is home to some super staples: Ayres bakery and FC Soper wet fish shop. Plus Kudu Grill, Goodcup and Peckham Bazaar.
