East Dulwich Contemporary - Ryedale, London, SE22
Guide Price £949,000
Offered chain-free, an architect-designed, three double bed semi-detached house of 1235 sqft, on a quiet and tree-lined residential street in East Dulwich, really close to Peckham Rye Park and Common.
The property occupies and exploits its plot cleverly and stylishly with plenty of timber and glass, and with a well proportioned reception room of 24ft by 22ft, three double bedrooms, bath and shower rooms (the shower room is en suite to the master bedroom) plus a downstairs w.c. A private, south-facing and low-maintenance garden plus smart shed and rear access complete the package.
Access to the front door is via a private pathway. Open directly into the main reception space with stairs running up ahead. A large window fronts the street, while folding doors open out onto the decked area of the garden. Under stairs storage is handy and beyond this is a neat downstairs w.c. On through to the double-aspect kitchen with slick black matt units and contrasting white marble counters. Glazing is heavy in this room too with further doors folding open onto the garden. There’s a brilliant attention to pulling in natural light throughout the property.
Upstairs to the bedrooms and bathrooms. To the front of the house you have the master bedroom of 14ft by 14ft. This has built-in wardrobes across one wall and the private shower room has a skylight window and contemporary fittings. The main bathroom is adjacent and has a cool curved wall plus skylight window and over bath shower. A second large double lies behind the master bedroom, again with built-in wardrobes. The large window delivers garden views. The third bedroom is a small double and makes an equally good home office.
The house is served well by local bus routes, picked up nearby on Peckham Rye. Hop on a bus here for Peckham Rye Station and well beyond, or you can walk to Peckham Rye, East Dulwich or Honor Oak Park stations easily enough.
Watson’s General Telegraph and The Herne Tavern are your closest pubs and very nice they are too! Lordship Lane is a short walk (10-15 minutes) for independent shopping, bars, cafes and restaurants, including The Palmerston, The Cheese Block, Chener Books and The EDT. There’s also a great weekend market on North Cross Road. Dulwich Picturehouse is a new and welcome addition to The Lane, or pop down to Peckham’s Rye Lane for Peckhamplex cinema and various on-trend hangouts including Frank’s and Bussey Rooftop (with rooftop film club also) and the very excellent newcomer that is Peckham Levels. Bellenden Road isn’t far either for great restaurants including Artusi and Ganapati. Others in SE15 include Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas and Peckham Bazaar.
