Tyrrell Road, East Dulwich
Slick ground floor garden flat in end of terrace position that’s been recently and fully refurbished to a high specification by designer and gallery owner couple, with new plumbing, heating and electrics. It’s also fully insulated with new double glazed windows throughout. Crisp white decor and engineered oak are welcome decisions, as is the flat’s own private entrance through a Mediterranean walled garden (with street access).
The thoughtfully-remodeled flat is a successful blend of old and new, with a rich, interesting history. It’s a converted corner shop – originally built in the 1880s and used as a fabric importer and trader. It was later taken over by a Welsh dairy farmer who ran a small dairy from the yard and shop (this accounts for the unusually high ceilings in the living area). The location is a leafy and quiet residential street close to Peckham Rye Park, between the centres of East Dulwich and Peckham. Parking is unrestricted, on-street. Leasehold.
Video intercom features at the garden gate entrance. Opening into the garden is a pleasing entrance. The garden has Cotswold limestone gravel and planting, outdoor lighting, tap and power. Through the front door and the master bedroom is on your left. French doors here open directly onto the garden, and you have fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes. Adjacent is the bathroom which is a neat white number with over bath shower, heated towel rail, brick-style tiling and a built-in floor to ceiling cupboard. The second double bedroom is next door, with a walk-in cupboard which provides access to the cellar (which is dry with waterproof rendered walls).
The hallway is well-lit via skylights (two of which are openable) and at its widest section also boasts a built-in sideboard housing washing machine, tumble dryer and boiler, plus lots of storage. At the foot of the hall, pop up a couple of stairs and you arrive in the huge kitchen/living/dining room which is over 22 feet and has just-shy-of 3 metre high ceilings! Timeless pale wall and base units are teamed with solid wood counters and glossy white and blue wall tiles. The reception area has large, new, double-glazed sash windows. A neat guest w.c. sits just off the kitchen area.
What a spot! You are but a few minutes from Peckham Rye Park and Goose Green. Dulwich Park, Dulwich Village and Dulwich Picture Gallery are all within reasonable walking distance. Lordship Lane and North Cross Road shops and Saturday market are within a 5 minute walk (we rate SMBS Foods, The Cheese Block and William Rose particularly highly, and East Dulwich Picturehouse), and you have lots of lovely pubs around, including The Clockhouse, The Herne, the Great Exhibition and The Actress. Peckham Rye and East Dulwich stations are each a 15 minute (flat) walk away. East Dulwich leisure centre is also nearby. Little ones? You are within catchment of several of the best local schools including Goose Green Primary.
