Elegant Grade II Listed William IV Three Bedroom Home With Loft Room and OSP – CHAIN FREE.

Built in 1836 as part of the first pair of villas on the road, this charming period home retains much of its original glory. Large, arched sash windows, fireplaces, shutters and a sublime curved staircase echo the finest of the era. There's a modern kitchen/diner, utility room, a beautiful double reception, shower room, bathroom, three bedrooms and an entirely versatile loft room too. A pretty, mature garden and off-street parking are the cherries on the cake. Lyndhurst Way easily rivals Camberwell Grove for its large period homes and is within the carefully observed Holly Grove conservation area. It borders the bustling Bellenden Road area putting this house at the hub of the whole Peckham regeneration experience. Transport is a cinch with any number of swift regular buses whizzing down Peckham Road. Peckham Rye Station is an easy 10-minute morning stroll. Now that's an easy commute!

The entrance hall greets you with that most elegant original staircase with sweeping curved hardwood handrail. It's a true delight. Built-in bespoke bookshelves run a generous length along the left wall - you'll fit all the classics. A door on your left opens to the magnificent double reception which has a large original arched sash window with its original shutters. This peers over the front garden and the surrounding period loveliness of Lyndhurst Way. Wide original double doors open to the rear sitting room which too enjoys a large original sash window with shutters. Both rooms boast a glorious working Regency fireplace with marble mantel. The ground floor is completed by a neat bathroom with roll top bath, loo and wash hand basin. The original vertical shutters, whilst in need of renovation, could easily be reinstated.

Heading downward to the lower ground floor you meet a large L-shaped kitchen/diner. The cooking area fronts the street with modern cabinets running on either side. A large central, Quartz-topped island supplies oodles of storage on both sides. You'll benefit from a full range of contemporary appliances including dishwasher and American-style fridge/freezer. The dining area sits to the rear, stretching into the full impressive width of the building. There are two rear aspect sash windows along with charming French doors which open to the garden. With a lovely paved patio and abundant lush greenery, it's the perfect spot for al-fresco dining with your circle of friends and indeed catching up on the latest novel. The property further benefits from a side aspect lower entrance - great for mucky dogs and kids. A utility room with space for the washing machine and tumble dryer completes the lower ground floor.

Heading up to your first floor you'll enjoy the beautiful, curved stairwell which is bathed in light by a large side aspect window. A recessed shelf affords you the perfect space for exhibiting that signature sculpture. The upper landing is suitably light and airy. You'll find the first of your double bedrooms fronting the street with a feature fireplace and fitted storage. A single bedroom/study shares the front spot. A second double bedroom enjoys a peaceful rear aspect and garden views. Completing this level is a shower room which leads, via carpeted staircase, to the fab loft room. This spans much of the main footprint and has abundant eaves storage and a lofty rear aspect.

Access to the city and West End is easy by car or public transport - take the ubiquitous no. 12 bus or walk five minutes to Peckham Rye station (zone 2) for fast and frequent services to Victoria, London Bridge and Blackfriars. Bellenden Village is a matter of seconds on foot and supplies much to do. We love The Victoria for a pint, The Begging Bowl for some excellent nosh and Review book shop for a nose around the latest titles. The high street, Rye Lane, is a stone's throw for a cosmopolitan mix of food shops and other outlets. As for social life, good restaurants, bars and delis are on your doorstep and the Peckham Pulse, award winning library and Sunday farmers market are around the corner. This part of SE15 is also well located for East Dulwich and Dulwich Village where you have more excellent shopping, the Dulwich Foundation schools, the park and the Picture Gallery. Read Less
