Really smart and tidy two bed first floor flat of some 531 square feet on a residential Peckham street. With just one flat below you, you have a large reception room, two bedrooms, and a modern, nicely arranged bathroom and kitchen. You’re close to two stations: Queen’s Road Peckham and Peckham Rye Station (walk 11 and 16 minutes to these), as well as Peckham’s main high street and ever-so-trendy evening options on Rye Lane. Leasehold. Chain free.
Open the main front door into a shared hall with the flat below. The flat’s front door is straight ahead. Up the stairs and you'll notice how bright it is owing to the pale decorative scheme and east-west orientation (artists’ favourite!) allowing all-day-light through the property. Turning back on yourself to the front of the property, first find the master bedroom to your right. It’s nearly 11 feet by over 9 with double-glazed window and pale carpet. The reception is a lovely room across the width of the house, at over 14 feet by over 11. It’s easy to zone seating and eating areas here. Two pretty sash windows deliver street views and the solid oak flooring is a really nice finish too.
Back down to the half landing area, the bathroom is set to your left. It has contemporary white sanitary ware and contrasting pale tiles, plus double glazed window and over bath shower. Adjacent is a small yet perfectly-formed kitchen with slick, modern fitted units, large profile tiles, solid wood counters and a double-glazed window. At the rear of the flat’s footprint is a large single bedroom with west-facing window. It’s an ideal guest bedroom, home office or nursery.
Queen’s Road Peckham and Peckham Rye stations are close for Overground and regular rail services. London Bridge, London Victoria, Clapham Junction and Canary Wharf (via Canada Water) are all easily reached. This is a neighbourhood that’s really hotting up. You’re close to Peckham’s iconic, Stirling Prize winning Library designed by Will Alsop and Peckham Pulse, for gym and swim. There’s a weekly Farmers’ Market in Peckham Square every Sunday 9am to 1pm, and Bellenden Road, Rye Lane and Queen’s Road are all close for independent shops, plus the high street staples, supermarkets and great places to eat and drink and enjoy life. Peckham Plex cinema, Bussey Building & Copeland Park, Review bookstore, Ganapati, Artusi, Sally Butcher’s Persepolis, Beer Rebellion and The Blackbird Bakery are just a few recommendations.
Peckham’s cultural quarter is one of London's liveliest and there’s even more to come, including The Peckham Coal Line, regeneration of and around Peckham Rye station, as well as two Bakerloo line stops on the Old Kent Road (projected 2028/29). For more options, Central Camberwell and New Cross are a short jaunt.
