Architect Designed Two/Three Bedroom House with Large Garden

Sprawling over 1100 square feet, this award-winning, architect designed home sits on the cusp of Peckham Rye park and will impress you at every step. It was originally built in the late 50’s and expertly augmented in the noughties. The house extends to include a vast L-shaped living/dining room with a wall of glass leading to a semi decked garden. There's a liberal covering of hardwood Muhuhu flooring, reclaimed from the Tate and Lyle factory. You'll note Bisazza tiling in the bathrooms and African Wenge wood panelled doors too. Both of the bedrooms are en suite doubles and the master room would best be described as a suite. It spans the entire top floor and has an adjoining dressing room. There is plenty of storage space in the loft too! The garden is fittingly fabulous; there's a sun-drenched decked terrace and healthy lawn.

A contemporary, statement facade with funky windows make a confident first impression. There's off street parking and some lovely hedging. Once inside you meet an open plan living/dining area. The front-facing floor level feature window gives a splash of vibrancy and there are two large skylights running along the left wall. Glass doors to the rear open wide to reveal the garden vista and there's further light flooding down from a third skylight above the seating space. There's a brushed steel gas fire with ceiling height flue, 'Modular' gallery lighting and some lovely recessed art display points. A nifty latch in the centre of the room opens up to reveal a wine cellar! The garden has three mature Eucalyptus trees supply an irresistible aroma and some dappled shade. The al fresco dining spot takes the best of the rays. Back inside you'll find a handy utility room off the living space. It also offers direct access to the garden. The kitchen hosts a healthy array of quality integrated appliances and fittings. There's a dishwasher, fridge freezer, double oven, Franke sink and Siemens five ring gas range. The counters are granite (of course) and you'll never need for natural light with a wide internal window facing the living room and garden. Beyond this you'll find the first of the double en suite bedrooms. It's a front facing room with a dishy adjoining bathroom. Slinking up to your first floor master suite you're reminded of the wealth of light. A large skylight encourages sun to brighten your day. There are four storage points that separate the dressing room/home office and bedroom spaces. The adjoining shower room has a wet room style shower and huge skylight.

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 vain as nearby Bellenden Road. The fabulous Peckham Rye park with its cafe 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.
