Fine-looking Four Bedroom Victorian Home with South East Facing Garden and SE22 Location
Henslowe Road is a quiet one-way street within easy reach of the entertainments, high street outlets and foodie shops in Lordship Lane. Running just off Underhill Road and within striking distance of Peckham Rye park, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better location. Take a look at our new dishy number – it’s Victorian, has four bedrooms, and a nice mix of original and modern features. The current owners have cleverly maximised the house to its full potential to include a huge kitchen and additional slumber space in the loft. Add all this to a winning SE22 postcode and a south-east facing garden of 30 feet.
From the hall, your double reception bears right with chunky wooden floors, an imposing fireplace in the front room and a front facing bay window with plantation shutters. The front section makes a great seating area while the rear room is currently used as a dining space leading straight through (via double doors) to the kitchen. Back out in the hall, at the end of which you’ll find a good sized cupboard under the stairs and a separate loo for guests and nippers. Carry on ahead into a fantastic kitchen. It is everything you would want it to be – bright, spacious and very impressive. White units line the left hand side and are crowned by solid wooden worktops. There is plumbing for two washing machines (great if you have children!) and a big utility cupboard will store any number of items. Spotlights twinkle overhead and there are lashings of natural light through three Velux windows and bi-fold doors that can be drawn completely back to integrate the outside with the in. Spill out onto your garden now the warmer weather is here for al-fresco drinks after dinner! Speaking of the garden, out here you’ll find over 30 feet of space with a decked seating area, raised planters and a healthy lawn at the rear for the kids.
The first floor has a family bathroom on the rear landing and the first double bedroom overlooking the garden. A further climb will reward you with bedroom two (also facing rear) and the master bedroom fronting the street. There are twin fitted wardrobes in the two larger rooms and a pretty décor throughout. The second floor has a big shower room with elegant black floor tiling and a walk-in shower cubicle. The loft has been expertly converted into a big double bedroom – it’s so big the current owners have a sleeping area arranged at one end and a home office arrangement at the other. If you needed the extra space, one could easily make two separate bedrooms up here.
The location also has lots to offer. A short walk takes you to Barry Road with buses to whiz you all over London. East Dulwich and Peckham Rye stations (with regular services to London Bridge, Victoria and the London Overground line) are within walking distance, as is the popular Clock House pub and the rolling green spaces of Peckham Rye Park. There are a run of local shops nearby on Forest Hill Road which include a post office, Co-op, pharmacy and a popular French Café which is great on a chilled Sunday afternoon. Head in the other direction to find The Great Exhibition which does a great pint and a weekend brunch before you saunter down to North Cross Road for the weekly food market. Families flock to this area as you are ever-so well placed for good schools (Goodrich and Heber are the favourites).
