Brilliantly located, spacious two bedroom half house with scope to extend.
This very pretty and spacious two bedroom half house is to be found on Kinsale Road just off Rye Lane in Peckham. The house is brilliantly located for not only central Peckham but also Bellenden Road and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane. So, within a short walk, you have access to the growing number of bars, restaurants and independent shops in this increasingly fashionable area of south-east London as well as the lovely open spaces of Peckham Rye itself.
The property is within a five to ten minute walk of Peckham Rye railway station (which provides 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 access to the London Overground services, which provide connections to Clapham Junction and the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf.
You approach the property through the small front garden and enter into the shared hallway with its period tiled floor where you will find the front door to the house on your right. Upon entering the house you find yourself in the hallway from which doors open into the reception room.
The reception room, whilst formerly two separate rooms, is now a through room which has stripped wooden boards to the floor. Both the front and rear parts of the room have feature hearths in the front one of which there is fitted a solid fuel burner. In both reception rooms there is built-in shelving to one of the chimney breast recesses and from the front reception room a wide bay, fitted with half height plantation shutters, looks out onto Kinsale Road. Both reception rooms have the high ceilings which are typical of properties of this age.
From the rear reception room a doorway leads into the kitchen. This is a bright space with a sash window looking out to the rear and a half glazed door leading out from the side into the garden. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern units with a wooden worksurface. There is an integrated oven and hob, washing machine, fridge and freezer. From the kitchen there is an entrance into a useful understairs storage space.
Returning to the entrance hallway, a flight of stairs leads to the first floor. At the top of the stairs on the first landing you will find the bathroom and a separate cloakroom. The bathroom, which is at the rear of the house, is smartly fitted with a modern white suite comprising bath, hand basin and separate walk-in shower enclosure which has a rainfall showerhead. There are mosaic tiles to the bathroom floor and white contemporary tiling to the walls. The bathroom also has the benefit of a heated towel rail. Adjacent to the bathroom is a separate cloakroom, which is fitted with a white low-level WC. Both the bathroom and cloakroom have some built-in storage.
From the first landing a step leads up to the main first floor landing where you will find the two bedrooms and access to the loft space. The loft space provides scope, STPP, to further extend this lovely home by creating one or two further bedrooms in the loft as many of the neighbouring properties on Kinsale Road have done.
Immediately to your left on the main first floor landing is the second bedroom. This is a comfortable double room with a sash window looking out to the rear down on to the rear garden space.
At the front of the property at first floor level you will find a useful original built-in storage cupboard before entering the main bedroom. The main bedroom is a generous double room with period cornicing and stripped and painted boards to the floor. This bright room has a wide bay fitted with sash windows looking out onto Kinsale Road.
Externally the property has a small front garden and a lovely private rear garden that wraps around the house. Whilst very much a city garden, this is a pretty and sunny spot. To the side of the house is a paved area which is perfect for outside dining or entertaining. This area gets direct sunshine during the afternoon and early evening. At the rear of the house is an astroturfed area which is nicely secluded and which gets direct sunshine all day from 11am onwards. The rear garden also has a side return, which is partly paved and partly laid to gravel. As well as providing potential scope (STPP) to further extend the downstairs footprint of the house it also provides direct access, via a locked gate, onto Kinsale Road thereby allowing bikes and other large items to be brought into the garden without the need to pass through the house itself.
This lovely house has replacement wood double glazed sashes throughout. It is excellently located and provides spacious and adaptable accommodation with scope to further extend the existing accommodation. Your early viewing is recommended.
