Talfourd Road, Peckham Rye
Large, light and lovely Victorian townhouse - covering four full floors - on one of Peckham Rye’s finest ‘Lyndhurst toast rack’ streets, in beautiful Peckham Rye/Camberwell borderland.
The property delivers circa 2366 square feet, inclusive of a flexible-use garden room/office (with power, air-con and WiFi). Walk to Peckham Rye Station in just 9 minutes and to Denmark Hill Station in 11. Both are on the Overground network. You’re also very close to Bellenden Road and Rye Lane, The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7), and to central Camberwell.
The property has two entrances to the lower and upper ground floors, and is currently arranged as a four double bed home with generous and open family/entertaining-friendly reception spaces to two floors, and two bathrooms (plus downstairs w.c. and utility). You could arrange things differently to suit your setup - it’s a wonderfully-flexible house. Period features are at every swivel: fireplaces, stripped floors, sash windows, window shutters and many more! Freehold.
The lower ground floor is well-designed; it’s been extended from its original footprint giving you loads of space to zone kitchen, reception and dining areas. The floor runs 40 feet by over 16! The kitchen is a timeless and hand-built one in cream, with central island and wooden counters. A large utility room (with lavatory) plus independent pantry further impress. The pantry's home to a sink, ZIP tap (instant boiling/chilled/filtered water), dishwasher and fridge points. A large rooflight and French doors also feature downstairs, plus a store area under the front steps (this area has power and can take both a full height fridge and full height freezer).
On the raised ground floor you’ll find the double-reception. Both rooms are generous and the front reception has built-in storage to its alcoves. The through-light is amazing, thanks to the east-west orientation of the property. The ceilings are pleasingly-high. To the rear of this floor you’ve got a big storage cupboard, and a rear room which is currently used for storing sport stuff/coats etc. It would make an equally good study/hobby room. It’s also a second access point to the garden.
The garden has three distinct zones and a brilliant garden room beyond these, with mature trees and plants framing the whole space. Out here you’ll enjoy an established grapevine, white roses, jasmine, honeysuckle and clematis, and a mature white wisteria which graces the back of the house.
Heading up to the first floor you’ll first find a bathroom set to the rear of the building. Then you’ve got two big double bedrooms (they are over 17 feet by over 12, and over 12 feet by over 10). This footprint is repeated for the second floor: another pretty bathroom (both have over bath showers) and two further big bedrooms.
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.
Little ones or thinking of? The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School is close and very popular, as is Lyndhurst Primary on nearby Grove Lane, and The Belham Primary on the corner or Maxted and Bellenden Roads. The Dulwich schools are only a short drive from the house.
Bellenden Road is your local high street with independent shops and restaurants including Ganapati, Artusi, Anderson’s, Review, Flock & Herd and The General Store.
Rye Lane and Blenheim Grove serve up more options including Peckham Levels, Peckham Plex cinema (films for a fiver), The Bussey and Market Buildings, Levan and Tonkotsu. In the warm months, rooftop bars are found here too. East Dulwich is easily reached for Lordship Lane’s shops, bars and restaurants, and Picturehouse cinema.
Camberwell is also close for such delights as The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Theo’s and The South London Gallery, and the recently-improved leisure centre (with Victorian pool) on Artichoke Place, plus Zen Yoga Studio at the foot of Camberwell Grove, and Butterfly Tennis Club with two courts.
Local green spaces include Warwick, Lettsom and Lucas Gardens, and Brunswick, Ruskin and Peckham Rye Parks.
