A neat, no-nonsense, bay-fronted Victorian terraced house of just over 100 square metres, on a quiet and tree-lined residential Peckham street that’s close to Queen’s Road Peckham Station (walk there in just 5 minutes). The house offers up three bedrooms, a generous amount of reception space, a bright and modern kitchen, and both bath and shower rooms. You also have a private 36ft garden to the rear. Parking is unrestricted on the street.
A small front garden sets the house back from the pavement, and once in the blue-painted timber front door, it’s a right turn into the double-reception that’s immaculately decorated (as throughout) and bright and fronted with a big bay window. The period-style fireplace is another welcome feature. Back to the hall and two under stairs storage cupboards are handy for cleaning bits, coats etc. The next room you arrive in is the dining room of 10ft by 7ft, that’s open-plan to the smart kitchen with double-glazed French doors to the garden at the foot, and with a skylight window, too. The kitchen units are timeless in design, with stainless steel handle detail, and you have granite-effect worktops. At the rear of the house is a bathroom with contemporary suite, and adjacent to this, a shower room (again, this has been recently fitted).
Upstairs, the master bedroom has two windows that frame leafy street views, and it’s an impressiv size at 14ft by 11ft. Built-in wardrobes line one entire wall. Behind this is a second double with window to the garden. Off the half landing is a long and double/aspect room of 16ft by over 7ft. The loft space is accessed from the landing proper.
Walk to Queen’s Road Peckham Station in just 5 minutes for Overground and main line services. It’s just a 10 minute journey time to London Bridge. Canary Wharf is easily reached, via Canada Water. You can also take advantage of the many excellent bus routes on either Queen’s Road or Old Kent Road. Really locally, the new Queen’s Road ‘strip’ has some great offerings including Blackbird Bakery, Mamma Dough, Beer Rebellion and Meet District. Walk a few more minutes for the new and exciting Aside restaurant, on Goldsmith Road. Central Peckham is a 15 minute walk for Rye Lane’s attractions (The Bussey Building, rooftop cinema, Frank’s bar, Peckham Plex Cinema, high street shops, banks etc.) and Bellenden Road, for indie shops, cafes and shops. It’s also worth mentioning Peckham Bazaar (Pan-Balkan cuisine) on Consort Road and Persepolis (Persia in Peckham!) on Peckham High Street. Both an easy walk. New Cross, in the other direction, has more options, a Curzon cinema and Goldsmiths University, plus a large Sainsbury’s store.
The most local park to the house is Brimmington Park, with active ‘Friends of’ group, flanked by the beautiful Clifton Crescent houses. Kids, or thinking of them? Schools are good in this area and include Kender and Edmund Waller primary schools. Nell Gwynn Nursery is also good and local. All three are Ofsted-rated ‘Good’.
