Talfourd Road, Peckham Rye
Attractively-renovated two double bedroom ground floor conversion flat with its own front door, a long lease, and a huge shared west-facing rear garden (with direct access from the second bedroom and side access too). Chain free.
Find this classy pad within a handsome Victorian bay-fronted semi, on one of Peckham Rye’s finest ‘Lyndhurst toast rack’ streets, in leafy Peckham Rye/Camberwell borderland.
Walk to Peckham Rye Station in just 12 minutes, and to Denmark Hill Station in 15. Both are on the Overground network.
You’re also really close to Bellenden Road and Rye Lane, The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7), and to central Camberwell.
Find your own front door tucked under the house’s front steps (useful store area here). At the end of the hall, turn right for the main bay-windowed room: a large one of over 15 feet by over 14 feet, incorporating seating, kitchen and dining areas, with snazzy herringbone parquet flooring running through from the hall (and gracing the bedrooms too). The navy kitchen units are a timeless and smart Shaker-style. A large ceramic Butler sink and open-shelf detail are welcome decisions.
Next up you have the first double bedroom - this one is over 12 feet by over 9 feet, with built-in closets to both alcoves, and a sash window looking out to the garden.
The bathroom’s opposite. With window and a white suite which includes a Japanese-style bath. The monochrome fittings are both on-trend and high-end.
Finally find your second bedroom (currently enjoyed as an additional reception room), of over 12 feet by over 10 feet. Both bedrooms can take king-size beds.
Large triple-glazed French doors open out onto a patio area. Beyond is a further paved area with built-in brick BBQ (perfect for entertaining) and long lawn. You’ve also got a lockable shed for all your garden tools, raised beds to grow your own, and handy side access. Mature trees and gardens on all borders frame the space. The garden is smashing for afternoon through to evening sun.
Two Fare Zone 2 stations are easily reached. It’s a super spot for bus travel too - with day and night routes just minutes away on Peckham Road. While we’re there… we should mention South London Gallery and TOAD bakery.
Local green spaces include Warwick, Lucas and Lettsom Gardens, Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Brunswick and Ruskin Parks.
Local eating and drinking establishments we would point you in the direction of include Theo's, The Camberwell Arms, Nandine, Silk Road and The Crooked Well (SE5) and The Montpelier, Ganapati, Artusi, Miss Tapas, Levan, The Coal Rooms, Il Giardino, The Begging Bowl and Mr Bao (SE15).
When the weather's warm and the days are long, Rye Lane’s rooftop bars are the go-to destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane is also where you’ll find Peckham Plex Cinema, Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building and Copeland Park, plus handy high street shops, banks, markets, boutique gyms, and good street food.
Local cafes and include Lumberjack and Petitou. For luxury groceries or a good bottle, we like Grove Lane Deli, Gladwell’s, Veraison Wines, The Sourcing Table, and The General Store.
Peckham and Camberwell both have good leisure centres with large lane pools, and The Butterfly Tennis Club and Zen Yoga Studio are also local, at the bottom of beautiful Camberwell Grove.
