Gorgeous Converted Dairy - Fellbrigg Road, London, SE22
Guide Price £1,595,000
Situated in bustling East Dulwich, this gorgeous converted dairy building offers ground and first floor reception spaces, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private, slate-tiled courtyard, plus two metal balconies to the first floor.
The genuinely rare to market home sits in a private and tucked-away position off a quiet residential street with unrestricted parking. Including a private and skylit garage/office, the property offers a gross internal floor area of 1648 square feet.
Industrial and homely features flow throughout – it’s a tasteful and sensitive conversion retaining many of the dairy’s original bits: exposed brickwork, woodwork and hatches etc.
Walk 10 minutes for East Dulwich’s Zone 2 Station, and you’re closer still to North Cross Road and Lordship Lane. Peckham Rye Station is a 20 minute walk for Overground trains.
The house is approached through an unassuming gate on Fellbrigg Road, at the North Cross Road end of the street. Before you get to the industrial glazed double doors, with a garage to the left, or alternatively in the current climate, a great home office space.
The doors open onto a roomy and skylit hall of over 13 feet by over 9. The perfect space to rest bikes, buggies, or sports gear. The building’s original double timber doors open into a downstairs reception space – of over 26 feet by over 16. A homely wood burner adds warmth to the room (kinda obvious!), and the guest w.c. is a welcome feature too. Open out here onto a delightful walled courtyard garden. At the foot of the room, stairs head up to the first floor, and beyond this is the main bathroom with traditionally-styled bathroom suite.
There’s more to this floor – take a right turn through a door into a lobby space with a large storage cupboard, and opposite this, a gorgeous shower room with cool pocket door.
Next door is a huge wooden-floored bedroom – of over 19 feet by over 11, with a wall of built-in wardrobes to the far wall. Double doors open out here too, onto the courtyard.
Up to the first floor and at the top of the stairs find the hand-built kitchen area to your left with a skylight up above and lots of open shelving, and a huge reception area to your right. A natural dining space, with painted wooden floors. The whole double-aspect room is over 33 feet by nearly 12. A pair of double doors open onto a long balcony from where you can admire the large courtyard downstairs.
Off this room you have a second lobby area (with further built-in storage), then you find two further double bedrooms – the larger of the two opens onto its own balcony.
Amenities and most local shops and cafes are on North Cross Road, Barry Road and Lordship Lane, where you’ll also find a varied selection of places to dine, drink and socialise. The Picturehouse cinema is a recent and popular addition to Lordship Lane. East Dulwich’s leisure centre with modern pool is but a 7 minute walk, on Crystal Palace Road.
Lordship Lane is now a gastro destination, particularly for local legends, William Rose butchers, SMBS, Mons, Moxon’s and The Cheese Block. Local restaurants and cafes include Blue Brick Cafe, Thai Corner Cafe, Franklin’s and Monkatsu. Local pubs include The Actress, The Great Exhibition and The EDT.
Green space? Peckham Rye Park and Common is an eight minute walk from your door. It’s the same distance to lovely Goose Green. Kids? Heber Primary is really local (and Ofsted-rated ‘Good’).
