Arty Peckham Freehold - Choumert Grove, London, SE15
Guide Price £999,950
Not a loft but we are drawn to this unusual Peckham freehold house by its highly individual artist’s studio style main living space and ridiculously hip location, close to all things cool in the neighbourhood.
Located in the Holly Grove conservation area, the house offers 1150 square feet over three floors with three bedrooms, the aforementioned skylight laden living space, a smart eat-in kitchen, and a double-height bathroom. Despite its period appearance, the property was built in 2003 and therefor a relatively low maintenance modern-build, sitting side by side with the period charm of its Victorian counterparts. It is end of terrace on Choumert Grove, really close to Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) and Bellenden Road.
With the rear garden lost to the studio style extension, you are compensated with a lovely south-west facing front garden which you can sit out in, and you are within easy walking distance of Warwick Gardens and Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres.
Off the entrance hall a neat kitchen sits off to your left with fitted units and smart black granite work tops, recessed lighting, plantation shutters for privacy on the lower panes, and space for table and chairs. The floor is tiled. Solid oak floors run from the hall through to the huge reception, which measure a respectable 15 feet by 24 feet. The latter part of the reception room has a fully glazed roof which is a brilliant touch and makes for a wonderfully-bright room.
Upstairs two bedrooms (of over 15 feet by 9, and over 8 feet by over 7) and double height bathroom. Up again to the master bedroom which is 15 feet long with lots of windows and nice views of the church to the rear.
Peckham Rye station is a mere 3 minute walk for London Overground and regular services. You’re also so close to buzzing Bellenden Road with its cafes, pubs and independent shops. Review book store, Anderson’s, Flock & Herd butchery, The Begging Bowl, Artusi and Ganapati to name just a few. The Montpelier, Bar Story, Brick Brewery Taproom and The Victoria Inn (with Roa mural) are well-liked local watering holes. On Blenheim Grove you will find newcomer Levan and local legend Il Giardino.
Rye Lane is a short walk for Peckham Plex cinema (£5 a ticket!), The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex and Peckham Levels. In the summer months, rooftop drinks are famously at Frank’s and atop The Bussey (where you’ll also find rooftop movies). East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane, Dulwich Village and Camberwell are all close for more options.
