4 bedroom end of terrace house for salePeckarmans Wood, London, SE26
Sold STC £1,025,000
This wonderful four-bedroom end-of-terrace Modern house, designed in 1963 by Malcolm Pringle of Austin Vernon & Partners, can be found on Peckarmans Wood. Widely considered to be the finest of all the 1960s Dulwich houses, they offer outstanding spaces in a beautifully landscaped and peaceful setting.
The ‘ranch’ style houses on Peckarmans Wood rarely become available. This particular house is presented in excellent condition and has been carefully maintained and sympathetically updated over the years by the current owners.
Ground floor accommodation includes two bedrooms, a bathroom and a utility. The entrance hall, kitchen-dining room, bathroom and bedroom are on the upper ground / entrance floor, with the living room and a further bedroom / study on the first floor. The private rear garden leads onto the extensive communal grounds and there is a small front garden and enclosed patio. Beneath the house is a large storage space, which some neighbouring houses have excavated to create a further living space.
The living room is a central feature of the ‘ranch-style’ houses, a fantastically bright space with a pitched roof and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling glazing that looks out across the communal grounds towards central London. Clerestory windows on the opposite wall give the room a double aspect.
The house has a garage and there is unallocated parking for residents on the estate.
An area well-known for its exceptional Modern architecture, the Dulwich Estate is composed of approximately 1,500 acres in South East London and includes numerous private roads that are managed by the Estate. It is noted for its concentration of outstanding 1950s and 60s design, much of it by Austin Vernon & Partners. Ranging from large detached houses with large gardens to rows of smaller terraced houses, the mix of properties as well as the exceptional landscaping and planting make for an appealing and unique place to live.
The property is surrounded by Dulwich and Sydenham Woods, which are a wildlife nature reserve. This is combined with Dulwich and Sydenham Golf Course as well as an allotment and sports club grounds to provide an unbroken green space as far as Dulwich Park and Lordship Lane. Other local attractions include The Dulwich Picture Gallery, The Horniman Museum and the local town centres of Crystal Palace and Dulwich Village.
Crystal Palace, which has previously been named as number five on Lonely Planet’s “Greatest little-known neighbourhoods in the world”, is a 15-minute walk away and is a vibrant area with award-winning restaurants and bars as well as having a thriving arts and music scene. Dulwich Village is also a 15-minute walk from the house, and the street is well placed for OFSTED ‘outstanding’ primary and secondary state schools as well as some of the best private schools in London.
Peckarmans Wood is a short walk on a footpath to Sydenham Hill station, which runs services to London Victoria (13 minutes), Blackfriars (20 minutes) and City Thameslink/Farringdon (22 minutes). Connecting trains (via Sydenham) will take you to Canada Water in 20 minutes and Shoreditch High Street in 30 minutes.
