Immaculate two bedroom C19th terraced cottage plus private front garden and a communal garden area, just three minutes from Peckham Rye Station. Freehold.
There are just 46 early-Victorian cottages in the rather magical, pedestrian-only Choumert Square (which is actually a laneway with its communal garden space at the top, past the beautiful rows of cottages); named after the landowner George Choumert.
You’ve got two front doors - one to the side (currently a generous study area) and one in the bay. The large reception is open-plan to the kitchen, and extends over 24 feet. Oak floors and crisp white walls impress. The kitchen is a modern fitted number; glossy white units and integrated appliances feature here.
Beyond the kitchen you have a slick bathroom, with white suite, large profile tiles, a heated towel rail, and an over-bath shower.
Up to the first floor and you’ll find your two double bedrooms to the front and rear of the house. Both have soft carpets and timber-framed casement windows. Custom-made shelving and rails are set in the alcoves of the front bedroom.
Walk just three minutes - via Choumert Grove and Blenheim Grove - to Peckham Rye Station (Fare Zone 2) for regular and Overground services.
Rye Lane, Choumert Road, Bellenden Road and Blenheim Grove are all close for cafes, bars and restaurants, plus independent and grocery shopping. A few recommendations are Artusi, Ganapati, Miss Tapas, The Montpelier, Levan and Petitou cafe. Rye Lane is home to the trendy Bussey Building & Copeland Park spaces, plus Peckham Levels. In the warm months, you can go rooftop for cocktails at Frank’s or atop The Bussey Building.
Warwick Gardens is your nearest green space, and Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres is a short stroll. Ruskin, Burgess and Dulwich Parks are also close enough, and Lettsom Gardens, too.
Peckham's already considered one of the most desirable places to call home in the capital, and there's even more in store for the postcode. Including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station and The Peckham Coal Line linear park - exciting!
Other options? Central Camberwell is local for such delights as The Camberwell Arms, Silk Road, Theo’s pizzeria and Friday live jazz nights (at The Crypt, underneath St Giles Church).
East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane and North Cross Road (for the top foodie and crafty Saturday market) are close also.
