DescriptionMy sister and I bought this property over 5 years ago and it has been a wonderful first home for us.
When we first moved in we had the bedrooms set up as comfortable double rooms, both with plenty of space for large wardrobes and furniture. The main living area is open plan with the unique feature of a mezzanine providing space for a home office. In recent years as my partner has moved in we have converted the back bedroom to an office which gives us two workspaces, which has been perfect for hybrid working. From the lounge, you can sit and look over the colourful treetops in the gardens and you no longer feel as if you're in urban London, but rather somewhere beautiful and rural and countryside.
Having our own garden has also been a blessing. Perfect for having friends visit for BBQ's in the summer, and due to the layout of the street, incredibly private, quiet and green. The street has a very friendly feel and we are on good terms with our neighbours,
Peckham is a buzzing area, with great restaurants, bars and shops. Franks is a personal favourite, a converted car park rooftop bar with unparalleled city views. We also love Mr Bao, The Begging Bowl and Supa Ya ramen bar - the dining options really are excellent. Camberwell, Bermondsey and Elephant and Castle are all also within easy reach for even more choice! Burgess park is a 5 minute walk away with the lake, tennis courts and plenty of wide open spaces.
Transport links are also plentiful. Most convenient is the 63 bus which goes directly from the end of the road to Elephant and Castle in 10 minutes and then onto Farringdon and Kings Cross. There are also direct routes to the City and Shoreditch. Equidistant to Peckham Rye or Queens Road Peckham overground gives direct rail routes to Victoria, Blackfriars and Clapham Junction. Having said all that, we rarely use public transport. Thanks to our large bike shed out the front of the flat, we find ourselves predominantly commuting on our bikes, reaching central London in 15 minutes.
With my sister living overseas, my partner and I are looking for somewhere with a little more space as we think about the future. However it will be painful to move on - we have so many fond memories here and I'll especially miss my morning coffees on the sofa looking out over the beautiful gardens.
