Vestry Road, Camberwell
A roomy three bed upper-floor maisonette (Victorian in era) of 1052 square feet, on a quiet street which is parallel to Camberwell Grove and its Conservation Area. The pleasing property - which takes a corner position - boasts its own front door and a private east-facing decked roof terrace.
Walk all of 10 minutes to Denmark Hill Station, and 14 to Peckham Rye Station. You’re really close to central Camberwell, and to central Peckham too. The South London Gallery and St. Giles Church are your most local landmarks (you’re just six minutes to either). Long leasehold.
In the front door and up the stairs and you’ll first find a generous shower room with plumbing for the washing machine, and a second w.c. (ideal for guests, or handy if someone is in the shower!) sits adjacent.
From the main landing you’ve got a very big single bedroom of over 6 feet by nearly 11, and a really big reception room of over 18 feet by nearly 12; you can zone seating, dining, study and hobby areas here really easily. Off this room you’ve got a fitted kitchen and slim sash window (as in the bedroom).
Ascending up again - on the way to the second floor, find a back door to your private outside space - which faces east so gets early sun through to early afternoon.
On the second floor proper you have a huge master bedroom set above the reception (over 18 feet by nearly 12), and a generous double of over 12 feet each way. All three bedrooms have pale carpets.
You’re only a couple of minutes from a popular leafy park (Lucas Gardens), and St. Giles churchyard is close too. Both are delightful through the seasons. Peckham Rye Park and Common, Ruskin, Brunswick and Burgess Parks are all fairly close too.
Highly recommended restaurants/takeaways, cafes, pubs and bars are varied and multiple. We particularly like The Camberwell Arms, The Hermits Cave, The Crooked Well, Silk Road, The Pigeon Hole cafe, Lumberjack and Theo’s.
When it’s warm, Rye Lane’s multiple rooftop bars are the on-trendiest destination for cocktails and people-watching. Rye Lane is also where you’ll find Peckham Plex Cinema (fiver-films-forever) plus recently-refurbished Market Building, and Peckham Levels. Peckham’s restaurants are excellent - some of our favourites are Levan, Artusi, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, and Peckham Bazaar and Babette which are more Nunhead-way.
Butterfly Tennis Club (currently being resurfaced) and Zen Yoga studio are also nearby, on Camberwell Grove, as well as the leisure centre with pool on Artichoke Place (the annual memberships there are good value).
You are close to two Fare Zone 2 stations as previously mentioned, and also to a host of day and night bus routes at the foot of the street, from Camberwell Church Street. Oval is a short bus ride to connect with the tube there. For more options, Peckham, Herne Hill, Dulwich, Brixton and New Cross are all easily reached.
Kids? Local schools include Lyndhurst Primary (3-11) and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Preparatory School (2-7).
