Fine Four Bedroom Period Home in Convenient Mature Location

We just love these Carden Road houses – handsome period exteriors, high ceilings and impressive solid room sizes. The original features are also noteworthy. This terrific four bedroom number is no exception. Bright, beautifully symmetrical and tastefully presented accommodation is spread over two and a half well proportioned floors. The property comprises a large double reception, kitchen/diner, four proper double bedrooms, shower room and bathroom. A storage cellar will house all your tat, and there are pretty, leafy gardens to front and rear. The property also benefits from a side access point - great for bikes and bins. If you're increasing your brood you can even convert the attic for 2 more bedrooms! Close by is Peckham Rye Park, a delight whatever the weather. Nunhead, Peckham and East Dulwich will each keep you wining, dining and smiling all year round, and you’re spoilt for some cracking transport links with nearby Nunhead and Peckham Rye stations. You can be at Victoria in as little as 13 minutes! Now that's an easy commute.

Open the wrought iron gate and go up a black and white tiled path. A well stocked front garden is on your right. The exterior of the house is a mix of red and London Stock brickwork, and there is some lovely original stucco work at the peak of the arched portico. Inward! A fine sized hall sets the tone for what is to come. High ceilings, neutral decor and some original dado rails and cornicing will delight. The double reception spans a cool nine metres from the front bay to the rear double doors, which lead into your back garden. Two striking fireplaces, picture rails and a most elegant rear ceiling rose reinforce the period credentials. The original timber floors have been sanded and limewashed. You’ll find access to your head height cellar under the stairs in the hall – handy for the vacuum cleaner et al. A long kitchen/diner with rakes of storage and dining space continues the tour. There are floor, ceiling and wall lights, as well as two sash windows for illuminating your dicing, slicing and spicing.Read More

Trot upward to the first return to meet the first of your bright double bedrooms. It’s a peaceful, pleasant room with feature fireplace and fitted storage. Throw those curtains open to a leafy garden vista each morning. A black and white bathroom with white suite and funky circular wash hand basin completes this level. The first landing is light and lovely, and gives way to a fantastic front facing master bedroom which stretches the full width of the building. You’ll note the fabulous black stained oak floor, and an original feature fireplace with mantelpiece and tiled hearth – yes please! The third bedroom, also on the first floor, has more fitted storage and a feature fireplace. Our last upward jaunt rewards with a fourth and final double bedroom with, as you’d expect by now, a gorgeous original feature fireplace. There’s also more fitted storage! A black and white shower room completes your exploration of the interior.

Back downstairs and step out of the kitchen door into the garden – there’s a slated area first, with plenty of space to hang your washing. Head through a wrought iron arch onto the lawn. Tall wooden fencing encloses the garden to left and right, giving you a really private space. A green oasis. Perfect for relaxing with friends and family.

A casual ten minute walk will get you to Nunhead station and trains to Victoria, Blackfriars, City Thames Link and St Pancras. Alternatively, you could walk a little further [or take a short bus ride] to Peckham Rye station, which has trains to London Bridge and Victoria, and the London Overground tube line, which offers direct access to Shoreditch, Islington, Clapham Junction and beyond. The glorious and well kept secret that is Peckham Rye Park is just a stone’s throw away. Games fields, an ornamental garden, arboretum, bowling green, duckpond and outdoor gym will appeal to all tastes. Carry on through the park and further afield you’ll find the delightfully eccentric Horniman Museum, and Britain’s oldest public gallery, Dulwich Picture Gallery. For fabulous views across the whole of London head to the top of One Tree Hill. Read Less
