2 Bedroom House For Sale
Beautifully enhanced house with 2-double bedrooms, 2 receptions, a super-chic bathroom, slick kitchen and very pretty garden. Many here have converted the loft. Just off Peckham Rye Park, 15-mins walk to trains and Overground services.
Period features in this oh-so-pretty half-house include original fireplaces and exposed floorboards. Careful cosmetic updates have triumphed too. The kitchen has smart handle-less units, a light-wood worktop and modern built-in appliances. The bathroom makeover includes bespoke joinery and a minimal finish.
The house has two receptions, one at the front with a square sash bay window and an original fireplace with hand-painted Victorian tiles. The dining room is in the heart of the home and open to the kitchen. You reach the garden through the kitchen, which has a stone patio and a lawn fringed by flowerbeds. A gravel path leads to a rear decked seating area and potting shed. Both bedrooms are beautifully turned-out doubles and have original fireplaces.
The property has been well maintained and most of the sash windows replaced with period-faithful replicas by Bespoke Windows on Lordship Lane. The loft is large and, with planning consents, easy to convert - there would be fab views of the London skyline up there too, if you choose to do it. In fact, many neighbours have converted their lofts and extended into their gardens.
Both Nunhead and Peckham Rye stations are 15-minutes' walk and in Zone 2. Nunhead has regular trains to Victoria, Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras. Peckham Rye offers these services, has trains to London Bridge and London Overground links to Clapham Junction, Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton and Dalston Junction. Buses from the end of the road pass Peckham Rye and East Dulwich stations.
Peckham Rye Park is on your doorstep with its new children's playground and cafe. Waveney Avenue is a quiet, no-through road with little traffic. Neighbours are friendly and welcoming and hold an annual street party.
Local bars and restaurants are exceptional. Copeland Park and Peckham Levels offer Forza Win (superb modern Italian), rooftop bars, the CLF Art Café, a sake brewery and a vegan café (all amongst creative start-up businesses and art galleries). Try Peckham Springs, Bar Story, Pedlar, Mr Bao, Artusi, Ganapati, The Montpelier or Petitou, they're all excellent. Nunhead has its own vermouth bar, a craft beer bar, a sourdough pizzeria, some creative gift shops, a retro furniture shop and Babette - a lovely restaurant. Walk across the park for East Dulwich and Lordship Lane..
