Impressive Five Bedroom Period House with Garage, Stunning Top Floor and Gardens in Plush Parkside Spot CHAIN FREE
Take a deep breath – you may have just found the one. Offering over 2000 square feet of space, this splendid Victorian house sprawls over three floors to include two receptions, five bedrooms, a cellar, two bathrooms and a detached garage with immediate access into the garden. There are direct views over Peckham Rye park from the master bedroom and a breath-taking second floor bedroom which has been deftly modernised to create extra space, light and envious park and city views.
The house is set back from the road (and park!) by a long landscaped garden and tall hedges – it’s peaceful, private and makes a great entry point. In through an original portico entrance to a hallway to hang coats. On your left is the first reception with high ceilings, beautiful cornicing and a square bay window to the front. Tall wooden doors (stripped back) lead into a second reception facing rear. From here, you can access the garden via French doors or pause to admire the fireplace with stunning marble surround. Along the hall you’ll pass access to a full length cellar for storage before reaching a kitchen/diner with gunship grey rubber flooring and white walls. There is a side aspect bay window which makes a lovely dining area. The kitchen units are white with contrasting black worktops and burnt orange splashbacks providing a welcomed dash of colour. Further access to the paved garden can be found on the far left.
On the first floor you’ll first find a neat bathroom on the half landing with side aspect window and a walk-in double shower. Behind this is the first bedroom, a good sized double, with a view over the garden and an original fitted cupboard. Toward the front are bedrooms two and three – the master drapes lavishly across the front of the house and has incredibly high ceilings, amazing park views and an original Victorian fireplace. Another climb to the second landing delivers bedroom four and a second bathroom (this time with tub and some lovely colourful tiling). A truly stunning fifth bedroom taking the majority of the second floor will leave you weak at the knees. It has an original working fireplace and has been opened up to create a magnificent space with exposed beams, five Velux windows, a feature window looking directly over Peckham Rye park and City views to the rear.
A casual eight minute walk will get you to Nunhead station and trains to Victoria and Blackfriars, or walk a little further to Peckham Rye station or Queens Road Peckham, with yet more connections. The London Overground line offers fast, frequent services to Shoreditch, Islington, Clapham and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water). Nunhead Lane has a proper bakery, greengrocers, wet fish shop and its own little restaurant amongst others all nestled round the lovely village green. Council plans are afoot supported by the local residents group for a regeneration of the lane in the same vein as nearby Bellenden Road. The fabulous Peckham Rye park with its café and play area is a stone’s throw away, great fun for the kids all year round, especially during the spring fare. Carry on through the park and within minutes you are closing in on the lovely market street of Northcross Road. The fabulous Nunhead Cemetery is also just a few minutes’ walk for long, relaxing walks and with an utterly fabulous view of St Paul’s. The kids will love the yearly Cemetery Fair and marvel at the perched wild birds and owls that are on show every year. You can enjoy a tipple at any number of cracking nearby watering holes - we love the Clock House, The Rye Hotel and the ever popular Herne Tavern - all within an easy ramble. Eating out? Pedlers, The Habit and Peckham Bazaar are all easy walking distance. Peckham Bazaar has been noted as one of London's best restaurants!
