Architect and interior designed total-one-off three bed house of over 1160 square feet, on a residential street between the centres of Peckham and Camberwell, near Bellenden Road and Warwick Gardens. Walk just 10 minutes to Peckham Rye Station for regular and Overground services, or 15 to Denmark Hill Station. The brand new property - in bright corner position with delightful Denman Road - was conceived by 31/44 architects (Grand Designs House of the Year finalists, no less). It’s delivered over three floors and comes complete with a low-maintenance south-facing garden that’s set off the reception room. Freehold.
A curved facade that’s sympathetic to the street’s existing Victorian homes makes for the softest of corners. The precast concrete entrance to the front of the house gives a hint at its modern interior. Open your front door at street level. From here it’s a left into the triple-aspect kitchen/reception room which stretches over 36 feet in length. A large skylight features over the seating area of the room, while sliding doors open onto the private courtyard (which has street access - a winner for barbie guests or bicycles). The floor is signed off with a concealed utility room with w.c.
On the first floor and you’ve two large double bedrooms and a smart bathroom set between the two. Up the stairs again for the double-aspect master suite with en suite micro-concrete wet room with twin sinks, and also a windowed dressing room (move over SJP!).
Throughout the house, it’s beautiful design decisions alongside effortless practicality all the way. Finds include designer lighting (Normann Copenhagen, Muuto, Dyke & Dean...), underfloor heating, oversized doorways, terrazzo porcelain, marble quartz, monochrome fittings, concrete flooring, engineered oak floors and plenty of Scandi-styling. Built-in storage and shelving is also well considered and executed.
We’ve mentioned the rail links; this is a super spot for bus travel too, with day and night routes just minutes away on Peckham Road. Bellenden Road is your local high street with top independent shops and restaurants including Ganapati, Artusi, Anderson’s, Review, Flock & Herd and The General Store. Rye Lane gives you oodles more options including Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, Taco Queen and Peckham Plex cinema, as well as high street staples, banks, and fruit and veg stalls..
Local schools and nurseries include The Villa, The Belham, Lyndhurst and Dog Kennel Hill primaries, plus Charter East Dulwich (secondary)..
Camberwell is also close for delights such as Nandine, The Camberwell Arms, The South London Gallery, and the recently-improved leisure centre (with Victorian pool) on Artichoke Place. Local green spaces include Warwick and Lucas Gardens, and Brunswick Park.
