Brilliantly located, two double bedroom, two reception room Victorian terraced house.
This very pretty and spacious two double bedroom, two reception room terraced house, which is being sold chain free, is to be found on Dewar Street just off Rye Lane in Peckham. The house is brilliantly located being moments away from the lovely open spaces of Peckham Rye Park, in the heart of increasingly fashionable Peckham, and 10 minutes’ walk from the established shops, bars and restaurants of East Dulwich.
In Peckham you will find the trendiest venues around Rye Lane such as Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, Market Building, Peckham Plex cinema and Frank’s rooftop bar. The Bellenden Road area is 5 minutes’ walk and here you will find a range of good restaurants and bars including Artusi (Italian), the Begging Bowl (Thai), Ganapati (south Indian) and the Victoria Inn and Montpelier pubs.
In East Dulwich, on its high street, Lordship Lane, you will find excellent independent shopping (Moxons fishmongers, William Rose butchers, Mons cheesemongers), restaurants (including the well regarded Franklins) and numerous pubs as well as the Picturehouse cinema. Additionally North Cross Road has a Saturday market specialising in crafts and foodstuffs.
Peckham Rye railway station is roughly 5 minutes’ walk from the property. At Peckham Rye you will find direct services into London Bridge (10 mins), Victoria (13 mins), Blackfriars (14 mins), City Thameslink (16 mins) and King’s Cross/St.Pancras (24 mins) as well as London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf.
You enter the property into the hallway with its lovely stripped wooden boards, which extend through into the double reception room and up onto the first floor landings and the bedrooms. Immediately on your right from the entrance hallway is the double reception room. This is a pretty space with a casement window to the front and fully glazed double doors leading onto the garden to the rear. In the front room there is a period cast-iron fireplace with wooden surround and tiled hearth and there are built-in shelves to both chimneybreast recesses, which continue along into the chimney breast recess in the rear reception room.
Returning to the hallway and continuing towards the rear of the property you pass an under stair storage area to the left, which the current owners have adapted to accommodate a large fridge freezer, before entering the kitchen.
The kitchen, which has quarry stone tiles to the floor, is fitted with a range of low level, white high-gloss units with open storage wall shelves. There is a solid wood block work surface and an integrated oven and hob with space for a freestanding washing machine. From the kitchen a panelled glazed door leads out into the garden.
Returning to the hallway the staircase, with open wooden balustrade, leads to the first floor. On the first half landing you will find the bathroom. This is a spacious room, which is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising hand basin, low-level WC and bath with over bath shower with rainfall showerhead. There is also a useful storage cupboard in the bathroom that also houses the central heating boiler.
From the half landing a flight of three stairs leads up to the first floor property. On this landing you will find access to the loft space, which, subject to planning and consents, provides scope for extending the footprint of this lovely house into the loft space.
From the landing there is access to the two double bedrooms. Immediately to your left is the smaller of the two rooms, which is still a comfortable double room. In this bedroom there is an original storage cupboard to one of the chimneybreast recesses and fitted shelving to the other. A casement window looks from this bedroom down onto the rear garden.
At the front of the property, and spanning its full width, is the main bedroom. This is a generous double room with two large casement windows looking out onto Dewar Street.
Externally the property benefits from a pretty and secluded courtyard garden, which has York stone paving and is partly walled. This provides the perfect spot for outdoor drinks or a barbecue during the summer months.
This lovely house, which is being sold chain free, retains much of its period charm and is excellently located. It provides spacious accommodation with scope to further extend it. Your early viewing is recommended.
