Loft Style Peckham House - Goldsmith Road, London, SE15
Guide Price £995,000
This loft style Peckham house offers fantastic double-height contemporary living close to the centre of this vibrant neighbourhood.
Created by local developers from the former Peckham Settlement Buildings, the house now offers 21st Century living behind the early Victorian façade.
The entrance leads up smart stone steps to the property’s front door and leads to a magnificent main living room, with oak floors and a stylish design electric fire with LED flame. The room is exceptionally bright owing to the large window to the front and a sheer, two storey rear wall of glazing onto the garden. Downstairs provides the large contemporary kitchen/diner of 23ft by 15ft, with part double height ceilings, folding doors opening out onto low-maintenance ‘sun-trap’ garden, which is landscaped over two tiers, with a paved area close to the house and a sunny lawn area beyond. Also on the lower floor, a very useful utility room.
On the first floor are found two good size double bedrooms (both have built-in wardrobes) and a contemporary bathroom, with both bath and independent shower. The second floor is home to a master suite, with private bathroom (complete with Shard view) and an additional room that could be used as an office, hobby room, walk-in wardrobe or even sleeping area for a baby.
Locally to the house, on Staffordshire Street, is an exciting independent gallery (Assembly Point) with neighbouring cafe. Goldsmith Road sits just a few minutes from Peckham’s iconic, Stirling Prize winning Library (designed by Will Alsop). Next door to the library, Peckham Pulse has good gym and swim facilities plus classes and you can take the canal path from just outside here down to Burgess Park. There is a weekly Farmers’ Market in Peckham Square every Sunday 9am to 1pm, with Bellenden Road and Rye Lane also close by for independent shops (plus the high street staples and supermarkets). Local greats include The Bussey Building and Copeland Park, Review bookstore, The Montpelier, Ganapati, Artusi, Anderson’s, and Sally Butcher’s Persepolis on Peckham High Street. In the warmer months, rooftop drinks with a sunset are a must at Frank’s or The Bussey rooftop bars.
In the other direction, Queen’s Road has a growing variety of places to eat and drink, including local staple The Blackbird Bakery, plus Mamma Dough, Beer Rebellion and Meet District. With so much going on in one postcode, it’s no surprise The Sunday Times put Peckham top of the list of best places to live in London! Looking ahead, there’s even more to come for Peckham: The Peckham Coal Line, regeneration of and around Peckham Rye station and a re-opened Lido at Peckham Rye Common are just a handful of items on the horizon.
