A beautifully enhanced five double bedroom, two-bathroom Victorian terraced family home with east-facing and part-walled, landscaped garden, on a pretty residential street that's just a five-minute walk from both Bellenden Road and Peckham Rye Station. Permit parking is on-street, for residents. Freehold.

A small walled front garden with a grey sandstone path sets the house back from the pavement offering additional privacy. The exterior is a typical pretty Victorian façade with old London stock brickwork and a bay window on the ground floor with detailed masonry surrounding the sash windows.

An inset porch protects the Victorian style door for those rainy days. The hallway leads through to the double-reception which has high ceilings and original timber floors that run front to back. The front room has a lovely bay window which fills the whole space with natural light and has an old school style column radiator beneath. The second reception is a natural formal dining room, a sash window from here looks onto the side return area of the garden and has another column radiator below. To the side of this room the area under the stairs has been cleverly utilised to create storage cupboards, perfect for keeping this area organised and tidy.

From the dining room there is an open doorway that leads to the kitchen dining room but just as you enter, neatly tucked away, is a guest cloakroom with wash hand-basin and window to the side for natural light and ventilation.

The double-aspect kitchen dining room extends over 15 feet with beautiful wooden framed glass double patio doors at the end that open out to the rear garden and fill this room with natural light. The kitchen is pure white from floor tiles to ceiling with plenty of wall and base mounted units on both sides of the room housing integrated appliances. The white quartz worktop runs along the right-hand side, housing the hob with extractor above and the sink which sits nicely under a window looking out to the side return.

The garden's a respectable 31 feet (9.5m) in length from the back of the house. There is a grey sandstone patio area closest to the house bordered by railway sleepers and a planter to the side which - perfect for herbs. Beyond this is a slightly raised lush green lawn with another bed made of sleepers at the far end, full of mature plants and shrubs backing on the rear brick wall. The side return is wide enough to stash cycles/scooters/gardening bits.

Up to the half landing and you arrive at the first double bedroom (almost 13 feet by 11). The sash window has a pleasant view over the garden and a white column radiator beneath. The family bathroom has a contemporary white suite with over bath shower and funky two-tone mosaic tiles surrounding the bath and shower area. The rest of the bathroom has white wall tiles with dark grey floor tiles and there is a heated towel rail for additional comfort.

Up a few stairs to the landing proper for a good size double, with high ceilings and another sash window overlooking the garden.

The main bedroom is at the front of the house and occupies the whole width of the property. It too has high ceilings and two large sash windows that illuminate this room. It has carpeted flooring and more stylish radiators under the windows.

Upstairs, the loft has been extended to create two further bedrooms, the one at the back makes a great office or study and the one at the front comes with an en-suite shower room making it ideal for guests. Two large skylights offer light and nice views of London over the roof tops and there is also storage under the eaves and fitted wardrobe space.

The en-suite shower room has a walk-in shower with stylish tiles and is accompanied by a wash hand basin with vanity unit below and a toilet with built in cistern. A frosted window allows for light and ventilation.

Peckham Rye Station (Zone 2) is a short walk for regular and Overground services. As for green space, Warwick Gardens is nearby, and Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres is closer still. The independent shops and amenities of Bellenden Road are also a short stroll away. Review bookstore and Flock & Herd butchery are a couple we recommend you don't miss.

The neighbourhood is a wonderful social hub. Local cafes and restaurants include Anderson's, Pedler, Banh Banh, Mr Bao, Miss Tapas, Ganapati and Artusi restaurants. Local pubs include The White Horse, The Montpelier, The Victoria Inn, and The Rye Hotel.

In the warmer months you can indulge in drinks atop both Frank's and The Bussey Building. The latter even holds a rooftop cinema! Rye Lane is close for high street essentials, banks and a large supermarket, as well as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building and Copeland Park complex and Market Building. It's all going on in SE15 as recent press coverage attests, and there's even more to come, including the regeneration of and around Peckham Rye Station, the Peckham Lido and The Peckham Coal Line! Local primary schools include The Belham (run by Dulwich Hamlet Educational Trust) and St Johns and St Clements. Little Jungle School of Early Education and The Villa Nursery and Pre-Prep. School for little ones are both just a short walk away.
