Splendid Five Bedroom Victorian Home With Original Features and Contemporary Styling.
Beautifully arranged over five wonderful floors, this very special five bedroom home enjoys the best of original period features and modern ingenuity. Boasting a most impressive architect designed rear kitchen extension, the property supplies top notch fixtures and fittings including Quartz counters, Grohe taps, double glazed sash, plantation shutters and underfloor heating in all bathrooms and the entrance hall - the list is long and lovely. Cat 5 cabling throughout and Sonos ceiling speakers in the kitchen, dressing room and master en suite further enhance your 21st century credentials. If the property looks familiar, you've probably spotted it on the 'Living Etc' house tours. It is also listed with a photographic agency and regularly features in high profile adverts and interiors magazines. A healthy splash of Farrow and Ball really makes the most of your living and slumber spaces and you'll spy abundant period charm - namely original window shutters, cornicing, dado rails, fireplaces and a curling hardwood banister to die for. Talford Road, originally built as a show road, has a beautifully eclectic mix of period architecture. It rises gently from Peckham Road to Lyndhust Grove and sits within a pleasurable five minute ramble of bountiful Bellenden Village. 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.
The exterior is particularly handsome with a double storey canted bay window, beautifully maintained stucco work and London stock bricks. There's Portland stone paving, integrated bike storage and a fab wood shed on the lower level. A suitably grandest of wide steps lead upward to a proud recessed portico on the raised ground floor. Your original door has oblong semi-frosted panes and a large rectangular light above. The hallway greets you gracefully with exquisite floor tiles, lofty ceiling heights and some wonderful original cornicing. A door on the left (with beehive doorknob) opens into a most splendid living space donned in Farrow and Ball's dulcet tones. The picture rails, cornicing and frieze share this marvellous shade. Walnut flooring completes the look perfectly. There are matching period working fireplaces at either end of the room. Both are hugged by bespoke storage units. That central arched cornice is sublime. Your wide front bay (with original shutters) frames a very pretty London streetscape and the huge rear facing sash peers toward the garden. Further along the hall you pass a beautiful original staircase (painted midnight blue and with matching balustrades and curling hardwood banister). A large study completes this floor with integrated shelving and more garden views.
Heading downward we find a further reception sprawling into the full width of the building. There's a fancy feature mantel, log burner, front aspect bay window with more shutters and integrated lighting for illuminating your best artwork. Farrow and Ball's 'Hague blue' continues the timeless, tasteful theme. A handy guest WC adjoins next to a front access point. Moving rear you find the utility room with sink, storage and space for the washing machine and tumble dryer. The kitchen/diner is an architect's dream! Stretching over nine metres with a full side extension and three sets of rear bi-fold doors which slide back fully. This allows you easily bring the dining table onto the Portland stone patio for a most wonderful al fresco experience. An elegant Vernon Panton light installation ('Flower Pot Pendants') hangs over the interior dining space. Your Quartz-topped island/breakfast bar is super wide and houses a double stainless steel sink with Grohe mixer and hot water taps. A further wall of counter and cabinet space supplies a five ring gas hob, wide pull out pan storage, integrated fridge, double oven and fab full height freezer. Heading out to the patio you'll enjoy abundant seating and dining space. A wide set of flood-lit steps rise forth, fringed by planter beds and mature shrubs. A raised lawn enjoys dappled shade from some mature Birch trees which are also flood-lit. The storage shed has electricity and slots seamlessly on the rear wall.
Heading upward to the first floor you find beautifully painted floorboards throughout the landing. The master suite is accessed via double doors and stretches the full width of the building. Walnut Parquet flooring and beautiful fawn coloured walls include a feature wall of period wooden panelling. Two large front aspect sash windows welcome a flood of light and we love those school house style radiators which continue throughout. Sliding doors open rear to a neat walk-in wardrobe/dressing area and onto to your glorious en-suite bathroom which features a period roll top bath, twin contemporary wash hand basins, double walk-in shower, loo and more plush period panelling. A large rear facing sash with plantation shutters. A separate dressing room accessed from the landing has fitted shelving and garden views.
Upward again to the second floor you find two really special double bedrooms. Both are bright and beautifully presented with lofty, leafy views. The front room has a feature wall of exposed original brickwork. A neat, fully tiled shower room sits in between. The stairs curls upward once again past a wonderful top floor window which ensures the stairwell and landing below are dazzlingly bright. The top floor bedroom will knock your socks off. Enjoying a wall of fab quirky storage it faces rear through a wall of glass. It's a joyous rooftop London panorama that includes Westminster, The London Eye and Canary Wharf - a real treat on bonfire night. Two large Velux to the front make it yet brighter still. A shower room adjoins with contemporary tiling and fixtures.
The Bellenden area has got it going on. For coffee, croissants, books, antiques, flowers and dry cleaning services, go no further than Bellenden Road (a 3 minute walk) where you will also find a number of good, local eateries. Neighbours include artists, painters and even an Oscar winner! The South London Gallery Cafe is great for impressing visitors with! Rye Lane is tantalisingly close for any amount of culture. We love the Bussey Building for its rooftop bars and cinema! The highly considered Villa Nursery is as close - now that's an easy morning drop off! The area has easy access to Peckham Rye (zone 2 and a brisk 5 minute walk) and Denmark Hill stations (also zone 2 and about a 12 minute walk away) for services to London Bridge, Victoria and Blackfriars. The London Overground whizzes you to Clapham, Shoreditch and Canada Water for the Jubilee Line. A whole variety of buses run into town along Peckham Road, just five minutes away. There are plenty of nearby pubs and eateries to enjoy - we love the Victoria Inn for pints, vino and nosh. Ganapti and The Begging Bowl are similarly popular haunts. 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.
