St Francis Road, East Dulwich
Delightful three bed, two bath Victorian end of terrace house with part-walled 'city' garden and a deftly-done loft conversion, on a cracking no-through street that’s just a couple of minutes from East Dulwich Station (Fare Zone 2). Peckham Rye Station is a 17 minute walk.
St Francis Park, Lordship Lane and Goose Green are mere strides away, and you’re close to all things Peckham and Camberwell too. Permit-parking is on-street for residents (so you’ll not fret about commuters stealing your spot/s!).
A smart front garden sets you back from the pavement. Open directly into the knocked-through reception which stretches over 22 feet. This room has lots of really welcome features: custom-made shutters to the bay window, stripped floors underfoot, recessed lighting, vertical modern radiators, and a classy central fireplace to the first reception space.
On through here and you arrive at the fitted kitchen with tiled floor, which has double-glazed double doors opening out onto the garden (which stretches over 27 feet).
The garden’s a pro-landscaped and low-maintenance paved affair, and has a generous planter with which one can flex those fingers of green.
Upstairs and you’ve got a traditional twin-sashed and carpeted master bedroom to the front of the house, of 11 feet by nearly 14, with built-in wardrobes.
Next door is a slick and windowed bathroom with contemporary fittings, an over bath shower, and brick-style tiling.
At the rear of the first floor, slide open a cool pocket door to another bedroom (of over 9 feet by over 7) with park views over St Francis Park. Again you’ve got soft grey carpets.
On the second floor you’ve got a brilliant master-suite: a good-sized double bedroom (with those lovely park views again) and the snazziest of en suite shower rooms, lit by a big skylight window. Concealed plumbing and contemporary fittings, plus built-in storage and marble splash back detail, impress immensely.
Green spaces are easy to land upon in SE London, particularly in your bit. Beyond the most local ones, Peckham Rye and Ruskin Parks are easily-walkable.
Nearby Goose Green was purchased in 1868 by Camberwell Vestry (at the same time as Peckham Rye Common) to save it from development... phew... we love those London Planes.
Independent shops, cafes, bars and restaurants are mere paces away on nearby Lordship Lane (we like The EDT, SMBS, The Bishop, Meat LiquorED, The Cheese Block, William Rose and Franklin’s to name a few!), and it’s a 15 minute walk to Bellenden Road for more delicious options - including Artusi, Anderson’s, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati and Melange.
You also have a fairly new M&S Food Hall next to ED Station, as well as a large Sainsbury’s store on Dog Kennel Hill.
East Dulwich Picturehouse & Cafe and East Dulwich leisure centre are also local. For more options, Camberwell, Herne Hill and central Peckham are a simple bus or cycle ride or walk.
