The Gardens, East Dulwich
Five bed, three bath Edwardian terrace of circa 1600 square feet, and with pretty garden, on our favourite East Dulwich street; it has a garden square for residents! The location is just by Peckham Rye Park and Common. Excellent bus routes run along Peckham Rye up to the City and beyond, and your nearest stations are East Dulwich and Peckham Rye stations; the latter is on the London Overground line. The house is in good order with oak floors and a pale decorative scheme. Chain free.
A small front garden sets you back from the pavement. Once in there’s a handy understairs store cupboard then a downstairs w.c. Great for visitors. The downstairs is open plan by design not compromise. The formal reception room, with solid oak floors, opens onto the dining area and the kitchen sits to the side of this room. It’s a modern fitted affair with built-in appliances. There’s also a utility space off this room, next to bi-fold doors out to the 21ft walled garden. The first floor is home to four bedrooms (two are generous doubles; one of which has an en suite contemporary shower room) and a family bathroom with white modern suite. Upstairs again and you open a door to the master-suite which is set in the former loft space. Four skylight windows keep everything light and airy, and you’ve another en suite shower room, too. Storage is available and easily accessed, in the eaves.
The Gardens is home to beautiful and impressive Victorian and Edwardian homes in the main, set around a large central garden square, of which residents have a gate key. Peckham Rye is viewed from your front garden (it’s that close) and it’s a super space to exercise, walk the dog or exhaust the wee ones. Watch this space for the reopening of Peckham Lido.
East Dulwich and Peckham Centres are each a short walk (15mins). We love Lordship Lane with independent shops, pubs and restaurants, and Bellenden Road for the same in a smaller setting. East Dulwich Picturehouse and Peckham Plex cinema are close, as is The Bussey Building & Copeland Park on Rye Lane (check out The Nines for happy hour cocktails, and Forza Win for fun Italian dining). Local foodie restaurants include Peckham Bazaar, Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas and Pedler. It’s all on your doorstep.
If you’re home-hunting with small ones or they are twinkles in your eyes, you’re well placed here for schools with the following primaries all within half a mile: St Johns’ and St Clements, Goose Green, Bellenden and The Belham.
