This charming two bedroom first floor apartment was purpose built as such during the Edwardian era and is being sold chain free. It boasts its own front door, excellent amounts of storage and a private garden. The property has gas central heating but is otherwise in need of modernisation.
The apartment is to be found on Oxenford Street, a quiet residential road of period properties, which runs between Oglander and Copleston Roads. It is, therefore, in the sought after area which connects the Bellenden area of Peckham with East Dulwich. The apartment is just a short stroll from both Peckham’s Bellenden Road (with its growing number of restaurants, pubs and independent shops) and East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane – one of south-east London’s most sought after high streets.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is around a five minute walk from the property and both Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye railway stations are also easily accessible by foot. At both these latter stations you will find additional direct trains to Victoria and King’s Cross/St. Pancras stations and access to the London Overground services. The Overground provides connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf and the West End. Frequent bus services are also available within 100 metres or so of the property providing direct routes to destinations including Victoria, Waterloo, London Bridge and Brixton.
You approach the property through the small front garden and the door to the maisonette, with its pretty original stained glass panels, is on your right.
Upon entering the property you take the stairs to the first floor where, on the landing, you will find access to a large storage cupboard and the loft space which provides lots of useful storage.
From the landing to your left there is a flight of three stairs leading to the bedrooms and the reception room. First on your right is the main bedroom. This is a comfortable double room with a sash window looking out towards the rear on to neighbouring gardens. Adjacent to the main bedroom is the reception room. This pretty room has a period picture rail and an open fireplace and a bay window looking down on to Oxenford Street.
Next to the reception room at the front of the property is the second bedroom. This is a single room which, again, has views out onto Oxenford Street.
Returning to the landing and proceeding towards the rear of the property you enter the kitchen/diner. This room is in need of updating but provides plenty of space for an eat-in kitchen fitted to the requirements of the new owners.
From the kitchen a doorway leads out to a passageway where you will find a further useful storage cupboard and the bathroom. The bathroom is currently simply fitted with a white three-piece suite.
At the end of the corridor there is a doorway, which leads out onto a cast iron staircase which leads down to the garden. Externally this property benefits from a pretty rear garden, which is currently mostly taken up by beds planted with a range of mature shrubs and perennials.
This is a rarely available, unmodernised, purpose built Edwardian maisonette in a very sought after area. It is a property offering the scope for new owners to put their own stamp on it and is being sold chain free. Your early viewing is recommended.
