Elegant Edwardian Three Bedroom Home With Beautiful Finish.
Handsome proportions, high ceilings, asymmetrical layout and stunning period features - all the things that make Edwardian homes our favourite. These attributes are all in graceful abundance in this delightful three double bedroom period home. Spread over two sympathetically presented and notably spacious floors, the house gifts you to a cavernous reception, large kitchen/diner, three proper double bedrooms, bathroom and a ground floor guest wc. A healthy array of feature fireplaces, cornicing, stained glass and some elegant styling make it a home of distinction. Talfourd Place sits within a pleasurable five minute ramble of bountiful Bellenden Village. You're as close to the much celebrated Camberwell Conservation Area and the bars and eateries of Camberwell and Peckham. Transport is a cinch with Peckham Rye Station a seven minute stroll for swift, regular services to London Bridge, Victoria, Elephant and Castle, Blackfriars, Farringdon, Shoreditch and more.
Beautifully maintained hedging fringes the front garden which has a lovely wooden gate, original tiled path and gravel bed with integrated bike storage. Your recessed portico boasts original tiling on either side and a beautiful original front door with spectacular stained glass - Honey we're home! Your inner hall introduces the theme of expertly painted original timber floors and complimentary neutral walls. Two doors to the right each lead to the jaw dropping reception which is far wider than in most period homes. There's a cast iron wood burning stove and signature front aspect square bay window. Bespoke shelving will house your classics and there are lovely cast iron school house radiators. The dining area to the rear has an original feature fireplace with wooden Edwardian mantel and more delicate tiling. This is flanked to either side by low level storage units and precedes French doors to the side patio.
Under the stairs is the access to the cellar, which runs the full length of the hall and supplies useful storage opportunities. Your kitchen/diner is a real treat with ample dining space underneath a large sash window. The cabinets are contemporary and crowned in solid dark wood counters. There's a ceramic sink, five ring gas range and oodles of space for that country dresser you've been dreaming of. An adjoining wc precedes double glass doors which open onto the patio garden. It's a pleasant, largely secluded and bright spot for al-fresco dining. Raised planters are well stocked with mature foliage, including pleached hornbeam and there's some lovely cobbled brickwork underfoot.
Head up your ever-so-lovely original staircase (with dark wood hand rail, white treads and risers and quality woollen runner) to the rear return. Here you meet the first of your splendid bedrooms. It's a rear facing double room with leafy aspect and plenty of light. A dainty original feature fireplace has a tiled heart and shelving. The bathroom completes this level with a shower attachment over the bath, mirrored cabinetry, Fired Earth tiles and a heated towel rail. Upward to the first floor you find your glorious master bedroom sprawling confidently into the full wonderful width of the building. Five sash windows invite a flood of light and there's another feature fireplace to admire. The third proper double bedroom comes last but not least with a peaceful rear aspect and final feature fireplace donning some joyous tiling. Above the landing is a hatch with built-in ladder serving a large, high-apex loft space. Floorboarded and insulated, it currently offers huge storage capacity and could be converted subject to the usual consents.

The wide open green spaces of Peckham Rye Park are also within easy reach. Even closer is the very lovely Warwick Gardens. It's a fine spot for a read of the papers.
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.
