Lavish and Abundant Seven Bedroom Detached Palace with Gym, Sauna, Wine Cellar and Parking
Trying to filter through 70 plus images of king-sized rooms and elaborate fittings was a hard task, so take a peek and you'll understand why we included so many! This gigantic double fronted home is on a corner plot on an affluent tree-lined street and not only provides seven double bedrooms, three vast receptions, a huge kitchen, three bathrooms, four off street parking spaces and side access to a further garage but is also all technologied up with CAT5 cabling throughout and the most superb standard of fixtures and fittings too. If you know this immediate area, you’ll be aware of three particularly special streets on The Colyton Estate - Mundania, Therapia and Marmora. The same builder built the resplendent houses in all three, matched only in pairs - each differing slightly to the next. You are placed within a few minutes’ walk from the wide open and scenic spaces of Peckham Rye park.
Sprawling over 4000 square feet, the house is a growing family’s dream in a well-connected location. Car enthusiasts will be impressed by the amount of parking too – there is a garage running the length of the house, off-street parking to the front plus an additional driveway at the very end of the garden and accessed from Shelbury Road. Additionally there are big wide stairs and landings, sash windows, lots of natural light, and the most gorgeous Jarrah or Oak floorboards throughout the majority of the property.
Through the front door into a wide and spacious hallway with underfloor heating and reception rooms to either side. Turn to the left for a stunning kitchen/dining room with central island, underfloor heating and front facing bay window with plantation shutters. Double dolenors provide direct access out to the garden. On the opposite side of the hall are a further two reception rooms with a wide opening between them, which run the length of the house. There are more Jarrah boards underfoot and two streamlined modern remote control decorative fireplaces. A swish TV unit has been built into the chimney breast with accompanying speaker system. The rear of the room is currently used as a dining space and has further access to the garden, a very pretty elevated ‘conservatory’ roof and extra wide double glass doors to equally wide steps down to the garden. There’s direct access to the garage/workshop via a hidden door.
Toward the rear of this floor there is a guest w.c, utility room with plumbing and two deep storage points. Nip down to the basement level where you’ll find a fantastically accommodating wine cellar and a gym (because the two go hand in hand, naturally).
The garden itself is a symmetrical beauty, landscaped with a central lawned area and paved seating/entertaining space toward the house.
Proceed up white painted stairs with a carpet runner to a landing on a half level to the rear which provides another separate w.c. and a family bathroom incorporating a sauna, which together with half panelling and tiling, makes for a truly sumptuous bathing experience. Up a short flight to a wide central landing with a capacious Linen Cupboard straight ahead. Handy for the three very spacious bedrooms leading off, one of which is designed as the Master bedroom which has its own dressing room and its own large and luxurious bathroom with roll top tub, walk-in shower and low level tongue and groove panelling.
Up to the second floor half landing to the rear which comprises the fourth double bedroom and has a lovely view over the garden. Up again to the second floor and another bathroom (this one designed as the ‘kids’ so with a half-size bath), double bedrooms five and six which are both very spacious, and mega-bedroom seven running from front to back. This top floor would really make a fabulous teenage getaway or au pair quarters. Access the loft space from the landing too – its boarded and provides additional storage for this floor should it be needed.
This property puts you a few minutes walk from the wide open spaces of Peckham Rye common. At the end of the road you have an antique emporium, Post Office, beauty parlour, wine merchants and convenience food stores. The Clock House or Herne Tavern provide you with two excellent locals, or try The Rye (further down the Rye) for superb food and surroundings. A short drive or cycle ride are all the amenities of Lordship Lane and Dulwich Village, including the Dulwich Foundation schools. The City and Westminster are 30-45 minutes away by bus from the end of the road or from Honor Oak station (ten minutes' walk).
