A beautifully presented and extended 3 bedroom family home in a great location.
This beautifully presented three bedroom, terraced house provides generous family accommodation. It is found on Elmhurst Villas, a short road just a stone’s throw from the greenery of Peckham Rye. The park and adjoining common, which offer wide, open spaces plus a café, outdoor gym/skate park and the recently opened state of the art children’s play park, are only 100 metres away. The house is within walking distance of fashionable Peckham, the village community of Nunhead, and the established shops, bars and restaurants of East Dulwich. There are a number of small local shops nearby as well as a range of local pubs, including the Ivy House co-operative pub, which is within a short walk of the house.
You approach the property through the small front garden and enter into the pretty hallway with its dado rail and stripped wooden floorboards, which extend throughout the ground floor of the property. To your left from the hallway is the entrance in to the double reception room. The front reception room, which is an attractive and bright room, has an open hearth with a wood burner. There is fitted shelving and storage to both chimneybreast recesses. This charming room has a period picture rail and a bay window, fitted with plantation shutters, looking out to the front of the property. The rear reception room, which is used by the existing owners as a dining room, has fitted shelving to one of the chimneybreast recesses and a window looking out onto the side of the property.
From the rear reception room a doorway leads in to the kitchen. This is again a nice bright room with a casement window looking onto the side of the property and a half glazed door and window leading out into the conservatory. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern white units with a wood block work surface. There is room in the kitchen for two under-counter fitted appliances as well as space for an oven and hob and fridge freezer. On from the kitchen you will find the conservatory, which in turn leads out onto the rear garden.
Returning to the hallway you take the staircase to the first floor. On the first half landing you will find the bathroom. This spacious and bright room is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising hand basin, with wooden vanity unit, low-level WC and roll top bath. There is also a large walk-in shower enclosure with a rainfall showerhead. The walls are part tiled in contemporary brick affect tiling and there is attractive period style tiling to the floor. The bathroom also benefits from a period style radiator and there is a sash window looking out to the rear of the property.
On the first floor of the property you will find the first two bedrooms. To your right is the smallest of the bedrooms. This has an open hearth and some fitted storage to one of the chimneybreast recesses. A sash window looks out onto neighbouring rear gardens.
At the front of the property at first floor level is the original master bedroom. This is a spacious double room with two built-in wardrobes and two sash windows fitted with plantation shutters looking out to the front of the property.
From first floor level a further staircase with open wooden balustrade leads up to the loft extension. The loft extension comprises a very generous double bedroom with two Velux windows looking out towards the front of the property and onto the nearby allotments. This lovely bright room has some eaves storage. Adjacent to the double bedroom is a smaller room, which is used by the current owners as a study but could be converted into a bathroom or shower room for the adjacent bedroom. From this top floor level to the rear the house has far-reaching views over towards Crystal Palace.
Externally the property benefits from a small paved front garden and a pretty south facing rear garden. The rear garden is mostly laid to lawn bisected by a path leading to a rear bed, which is planted with a range of shrubs and perennials. The garden, combined with the conservatory, provides excellent scope for enjoying the outdoors whatever the weather.
This lovely house has been finished to a high standard with replacement wooden double-glazing throughout. It is in a great location and your early viewing is recommended.
