SOLD – Spacious two bedroom apartment with some outside space in a peaceful location.
This stylish two bedroom apartment is to be found on the upper floors of a handsome period building in Rye Hill Park. It is just moments away from the green spaces of Peckham Rye and within walking distance (or a short bus ride) of the centre of, increasingly fashionable, Peckham. A little further, the established shops, bars and restaurants of East Dulwich are also easily accessible. Should you fancy popping out for a drink closer to home, you have the choice of both the Rye Tavern and the Ivy House within a short walk. The latter is ground breaking as it is London’s first co-operatively owned pub and the first building in the UK to be bought for the community under the provisions of the Localism Act.
The property is situated only a kilometre from Nunhead railway station, which provides direct services into Victoria (15 mins), Blackfriars (16 mins), City Thameslink (18 mins) and King’s Cross/St.Pancras (24 mins). It is a similar distance to Peckham Rye station, which additionally provides direct services into London Bridge and access to London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf.
You enter the building at ground floor level via entryphone into the well-maintained communal hallway with its period style tiling. A staircase with open balustrade leads from the ground floor up to the first floor where you will find the door to the apartment on your right. Upon entering the apartment a flight of stairs leads to a half landing with some built-in storage and access to the second bedroom. The second bedroom is a cosy room, which is currently used as a nursery but would make an excellent child’s or guest bedroom. It has a sash window looking down onto the rear of the property.
Upon leaving the second bedroom, a further flight of stairs leads to the next half landing where you will find the reception room, kitchen and family bathroom as well as access, via the window, onto the roof terrace. There is also a further useful storage cupboard. The reception room is to your right. This is a nicely finished room with stripped and stained wooden floorboards. There is a large casement window looking down onto the rear of the building and an open feature fireplace with tiled hearth and built-in shelving to one of the chimneybreast recesses.
Next to the reception room is the pretty kitchen diner, which has a large sash window looking down onto the central green spaces of Rye Hill Park. The kitchen is fitted with a range of painted shaker style units with a solid wooden worksurface. There is an integrated hob, double oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and slimline dishwasher. The floor is again stripped and stained wooden floorboards and there is ample space for a dining table and chairs.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the family bathroom. This is fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and hand basin. There is also a heated towel rail.
From the landing the staircase leads up to the master bedroom suite. The master bedroom is a very spacious double room with a Velux roof window to the front and triple fully glazed windows opening onto a Juliet balcony at the rear with views down onto surrounding gardens. The bedroom benefits from a range of fitted storage as well as under eaves storage. Ensuite to the master bedroom is a slick shower room fitted with a shower enclosure with rainfall showerhead, a white handbasin and white WC. There is also a modern heated towel rail.
Externally the apartment benefits from sole access to an external terrace area/balcony, which is accessed via a window on the main landing of the apartment. This provides an ideal spot for a glass of wine during the summer months.
