Beautifully presented 5 bedroom Victorian family home with plenty of period features and a South facing garden, located on this quiet residential street next to the bustling centres of Peckham and Camberwell. Conveniently equidistant between Peckham Rye Station for regular and Overground services and the very well-connected Denmark Hill Station. The street has recently had the benefit of convenient on-street permitted parking introduced, which makes parking outside the house very easy.

The house has charming kerb appeal with a typically ornate Victorian façade dominated by large sash bay windows and raised ground floor steps leading to the front door. The house is set back from the street with a neat font garden with a bin store and a cast iron gated fence.

The entrance hall lead to all the ground floor rooms and has storage under the stairs in the form of a small cellar.

The front double reception room has plenty of character and charm, the front area is the reception, which makes a cosy lounge with high ceilings, cornicing, wooden flooring, a working Victorian fireplace and large sash bay windows furnished with shutters that illuminates the room with natural light. The rear part of the reception room shares similar period features and is currently set up as a play room but could also make a further dining area or snug.

At the rear of the house is a stunning kitchen dining room, the side return has been extended into to make a lovely family/entertaining space. Skylights above accompany a window to the rear with a patio door that filter natural light into this lavish space. A stylish kitchen is set along one side of the room with a marble island in the middle housing the sink with storage below and a wine cooler.

The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of wall and base level units, fashioned with brass fittings, white metro tiled splash back, marble worktops and integrated appliances.

On the other side of the room there is plenty of space for a dining room table, chairs and a sofa, set back against an open brick styled wall. There is also access to a handy downstairs WC by the entrance hall.

The patio doors lead to the South facing rear garden which has been landscaped to create a lovely private low maintenance space. The garden is wrapped in horizontal wooden slat fencing offering additional privacy with low level planters below surrounding an Astro turf lawn.

Upstairs on the first floor are 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The master bedroom spans the whole width of the front of the house and has two large sash windows for natural light, one of which is in a bay and all are furnished with shutters. The floors are carpeted and there is plenty of space for cupboards in the alcoves of the chimney breast.

The family bathroom has an elegant freestanding bath as well as a shower enclosure which accompany the toilet and wash hand basin that is set on a vanity unit. The floors are tiled in grey with large low level beige wall tiles.

Two further bedrooms can be found on this floor, on smaller double at the rear overlooking the garden and the other in the middle of the house which is a good size double. Both make great kids bedrooms.

Upstairs on the top floor the loft has been ingeniously converted to make a lovely guest suite with a lavish en-suite shower room and a good size office or 5th bedroom. There is plenty of additional storage on this floor wherever the eaves can be accessed.

Other than the great train lines available, Gairloch Road is also a super spot for bus travel too, with day and night routes just minutes away on Peckham Road.

Bellenden Road is a great local high street with lovely independent shops and restaurants including Ganapati, The Beggin Bowl, Artusi, Anderson's, Review, Flock & Herd and The General Store - that are all popular with locals. Vibrant Rye Lane with all its shops, bars and restaurants is a short walk away - Pedlar, Taco Queen, Voodoo Rays and John The Unicorn to name a few favorites - plus cutting edge cultural hubs the Bussey Building, Peckham Levels and South London Gallery.

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.

Excellent schools including The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep, Belham Primary and the much-lauded secondary Charter East Dulwich.
