UNDER OFFER – A charming two bedroom purpose built Edwardian flat with garden in a great location.
This charming, two bedroom first floor apartment was purpose built during the Edwardian era. It boasts its own front door, excellent amounts of storage, access to loft space and a beautiful private south facing rear garden. Being purpose built, the flat is of sturdy construction and avoids some of the problems inherent in period conversions.
The flat is to be found on Oxenford Street, a quiet residential road of period properties, which runs between Oglander and Copleston Roads and has a lovely community spirit. 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.
You approach the property through the small front garden and will find the door to the apartment on your right. Upon entering the apartment you find yourself in a small hallway with a staircase leading to the first floor landing. From the landing there is access to a loft space, which provides lots of useful storage.
At the front of the property are the second bedroom and the reception room. The second bedroom is a bright single room with a sash window looking down onto Oxenford Street. The current owners also use this room as a home office, which is incredibly useful in current times. Adjacent to the second bedroom is the reception room. This is a bright and spacious room with a bay window looking out to the front of the property. The reception room has a period cast-iron fireplace with painted wooden surround and built-in shelving and storage to both chimneybreast recesses.
Returning to the landing, which has two useful large storage cupboards, you next pass the main bedroom on your left.
The main bedroom is a spacious double room with a double-glazed sash window looking out to the rear of the property with views of surrounding gardens. There is built-in storage to one of the chimneybreast recesses in this room.
Continuing towards the rear of the property, you enter the kitchen diner, which has large contemporary tiling to the floor extending throughout the adjoining utility area and bathroom. This well planned and slickly finished space is zoned into dining and cooking areas. There is an integrated hob, oven, fridge, microwave and full-size dishwasher. The kitchen area is fitted with cream panelled units with stone effect worksurfaces. From the dining area two large double glazed sash windows look out onto the side of the property.
From the kitchen diner a doorway leads out into a very useful utility area where the current owners have their washing machine and freezer. A doorway leads from the utility area into the bathroom. Again this has been very nicely finished and is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath, WC and hand basin as well as a walk-in shower enclosure with rainfall showerhead. There is an original sash window looking out from the bathroom to the side of the property. Returning to the utility area a doorway leads out onto a metal staircase leading down to the rear garden.
Externally the property benefits from a spacious and professionally designed south facing rear garden that extends to some 43 feet. The garden is mostly decked with a rear area of gravel and period style tiling which, in turn, leads on to a bed planted with a range of shrubs and perennials. This lovely space provides the perfect location for outside dining and entertaining.
This is a lovely flat, which has been finished throughout to a very high standard by the existing owners. Its location, within a short stroll of both Peckham and East Dulwich as well as three local railway stations, is very much sought after. Your early viewing is recommended.
