Architect Redesigned Four Bedroom Victorian Cottage With Amazing Finish

This expertly designed stunner supplies a sleek, stylish, bright and spacious living environment but two minutes stroll from the green expanse of Peckham Rye Common. Deftly converted from its original 19th-century form, the property has enjoyed a number of guises in its proud history including sweet shop and neighbour to Victorian pineapple greenhouses! Solomon’s Passage was originally called Pineapple Walk, presumably in honour of the nearby exotic horticultural endeavours. It was renamed after Israel Solomon - a previous park keeper and resident of 'Pineapple Lodge'. These days you'll find the property offering a finish of exceptional quality throughout. Chunky oak flooring and architraves, brushed steel door fittings, cedar slat work and riven limestone floor tiles all combine to supply a most impressive abode. Double height ceilings supply a wonderful sense of airiness and a healthy smattering of Velux windows ensure you're never far from daylight. All four bedrooms boast access to either a Juliette balcony or an outside space. A sunny Cedar decked patio garden to both front and rear mean your summer sipping is done in style - all in all it's a very special place to hang your hat.

High wooden security gates trimmed in steel make way to your front garden which is landscaped and semi decked. An impervious limestone path invites you to the sleek contemporary door and continues the full length of the inner hall creating a wonderful relationship between the inside and outside of the property. The first of cedar clad surfaces borders the staircase offering a matching seat and handy recessed storage point. A glass pane door to the rear offers a sneaky peek of the rear patio. The gloriously light, airy and vast living space tempts you to the left with double height ceilings. Six large Velux windows allows light cascade over a second Cedar slat feature wall and winter garden. The seating and formal dining space offers a triptych of folding glass doors which open onto the front outside space. The kitchen area isRead More

beautifully bright thanks to two more overhead windows. Chunky oak counters crown sleek white cabinets and a central island (for dicing and slicing) also accommodates a breakfast bar (for munching and crunching). Fillings include a four ring gas hob, oven and one and a half bowl sink and drainer with funky chrome mixer tap.

The other side of the hall delivers you the first of your four double bedrooms which opens onto the rear decked space. A further, similarly sized double bedroom mirrors this to the front of the property. The main shower room sits in between with lovely tiling, a double walk in shower with drencher, contemporary loo with concealed cistern and modern wash hand basin. There are also plumbed in spaces for the washing machine and tumble dryer allowing you to keep more space in the kitchen. A trip up the solid oak tread staircase is accompanied by LED step lights and another flood of daylight from above. Two further double bedrooms each with en suite span the first floor. Both open to Juliette balconies, are carpeted and have wonderful 3-metre high ceilings. The alarm system benefits from vibration sensors and infra-red detectors and is connected to a telephone system so it will give you a tinkle when required.

A short walk will get you to Nunhead station and trains to Victoria, Blackfriars and St Pancras International. Or walk a little further to Peckham Rye station or Queens Road Peckham, with yet more connections. The London Overground line will whizz you to Clapham, Shoreditch and Canada Water in no time. Nunhead Lane has a proper bakery, greengrocers, and wet fish shop, its own little restaurant amongst others all nestled round the lovely village green. We love 'Four Hundred Rabbits’ for pizza and The Beer Shop for craft beer and street food. The fabulous Peckham Rye Park with its new cafe and play area opening in spring, is a stone’s throw away from the front door and East Dulwich’s shops and cafes are just across the common. It's also a short walk to a bunch of great restaurants and bars at the bottom of Peckham Rye, and then on to Bellenden Road and Peckham Levels, which opened in December. And Pineapple Cottage is in the catchment of a bunch of good primary schools and outstanding secondary schools. Read Less
