This house has views testament to its fortunate location: from the front you overlook Peckham Rye Park while to the upper rear floors you gain views of London's iconic skyline. Beautiful period features include the original portico entrance, fireplaces, cornicing, sash windows, French doors, bedroom wardrobes, stripped floorboards, the front door and internal doors. Ceilings throughout the house are high and the conversion of the second floor is quite remarkable.
The ground-floor double reception has the original dividing doors, so rooms can be split. One fireplace has a cast iron mantelpiece, the other is solid marble and the original French doors open to the garden. The kitchen/diner has a side bay window, grey rubber floor, white kitchen units and a garden door. There's a large freestanding range, a giant ceramic sink, dishwasher, plumbing for a washing machine and a fridge/freezer unit. A door under the stairs leads to the original coal cellar, which is full height and mirrors the hall above it, stretching towards the front door.
The first floor has three double bedrooms and a shared shower room. Each bedroom has an original fireplace, the largest bedroom at the front has a fireplace with a solid marble mantelpiece and beautifully fitted extra glazing. Second and third bedrooms have cast iron fireplaces and original wardrobes. The shower room has a double-width shower, wall hung vanity unit with recessed basin, W.C. and heated towel rail. Most of the second floor is dedicated to a whopping 27ft bedroom with exposed joists, an original working fireplace, three skylights and a gable window. The rear bedroom is also a double, has garden views, secondary glazing, down-lighters and an original fireplace. The bathroom has a traditional suite with a bath and a rubber floor.
Measuring 50ft long, the front garden makes the house incredibly private and has high hedges. At the rear is a good-looking decked garden that faces south west, has gated rear access and the garage to the right. The garage is larger than many and was previously a carpentry workshop.
