Architect: SE5 Architects
This fantastic four-bedroom detached house with private patio gardens is located adjacent to Peckham Rye Park. Formerly a cottage built in the mid-19th century, the property was transformed into a light-filled contemporary home by SE5 Architects in 2011.
Internal accommodation measures approximately 1,250 sq ft (116 sq m), to include four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a large 36ft reception / kitchen / dining room. The house has secluded patio gardens both front and rear.
Interior finishes include limestone and oak flooring, oak doors and a slatted cedar wall. Double-height ceilings and windows create a sense of spaciousness. All four bedrooms have access to either a Juliet balcony or a patio garden. The property is equipped with an alarm system and security gates, and is very well insulated.
The house was angled to make the most of the views from the master bedroom of Peckham Rye Park and Common at the end of the street. Peckham Rye Common is a large green space with a café and play area, and there are formal gardens in the park.
Peckham was named as “The best place to live in London” by the Sunday Times in March 2017. The nearby Bellenden Road has become a centre for some excellent independent restaurants, bars, and shops, including Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Flock & Herd butchers. The Bussey Building, off Rye Lane, hosts an active and varied programme of yoga/dance classes and workshops, along with a residency from the Royal Court theatre.
Nunhead Lane has a village-like feel, with a greengrocer, a fishmonger and a new community centre by AOC architects. East Dulwich – with Brick House sourdough bakery and a Picturehouse cinema – is also a short walk away.
There are a number of good schools nearby including two ‘outstanding’ state secondary schools.
The closest stations are Peckham Rye and Nunhead, both less than 1 mile away, offering direct train services to Victoria, London Bridge, Blackfriars, Farringdon and St Pancras International, as well as to Clapham Junction and Shoreditch High Street on the Overground line.
