The facade is decidedly handsome, fringed with mature Wisteria and sitting behind high heavy-gauge railings reclaimed from the Royal East London Hospital (circa 1860). The window architraves are painted a seductive dulcet tone and the brickwork has been renovated professionally. An original front door opens to reveal an inviting hall with more perfectly chosen tones, high ceilings and engineered Element 7 flooring. The double reception sits on your left and runs almost 8 metres in length. Two eye-widening sash windows front the street and there's a further, equally illuminating specimen to the rear. An original marble feature mantel continues the charm offensive.
Heading downward from the entrance hall reveals that stunning rear wall of triple glass sliding doors. Rolling back full width, they open to the expertly manicured patio and garden which boasts a pond, two separate water features and a high-tech array of lighting. The kitchen/diner spans the full lower ground floor to include a noteworthy Poggenpohl kitchen with marble counters. The central island hosts your five ring induction hob and plenty of wide, anti-slam pan storage. Appliances include an American style fridge, double Gaggenhau oven with steam-feature and the all-important wine cooler. A generous dining area sits beyond the kitchen next to two front aspect sash windows (each with shutters) and a lovely marble feature mantel. The utility area adjoins with a sink and plenty of counter and storage space.
Rising to the first return, you'll find a beautifully fully tiled bathroom complete with underfloor heating. There's a spectacular free-standing contemporary Boffi tub and a double 'wet-room style' shower area. A long Corian wash hand basin sits neatly into further counter space and there's ample low level storage for your lotions and potions. The first of your joyous double bedrooms spans three sash windows wide. Cornicing, school house radiators and whitewashed/lye larch flooring ensure an elegant space. Bedroom two sits to the rear of the first floor with fitted storage and a lovely leafy rear aspect. All the interior doors enjoy chrome beehive knobs.
Upward to the second return you meet a laundry cupboard preceding your second lavish fully-tiled family Boffi bathroom. Attractions include a marble sink, wall hung loo and a wide inset bath sitting under a large skylight - perfect for star gazing! There is an integrated shower function also. A rear-facing sash supplies more light and leafiness. Upward once more to the second floor brings you to a light and airy landing. There are large double bedrooms to front and rear. Both have stylish bespoke storage. A neat front facing single bedroom completes the tour.

Peckham Rye is the site, in the 1760s, of artist and poet William Blake’s visions. Today this beautiful, big green triangle between East Dulwich, Peckham and Nunhead is composed of a newly restored Victorian park and the original and historic Common.
Nunhead Cemetery is one of seven Victorian cemeteries in London and possibly the most attractive. Part of what makes it special is the contrast between the lavish monuments built to remember the most important people of the era and the small, humble but equally memorable headstones that mark public burials.
