Property description

This wonderful two-bedroom apartment with a private terrace is in striking distance of the green spaces of Cossall Park. It is on the second floor of an imaginative apartment building with well-maintained communal gardens. The apartment’s south-facing terrace draws in wonderful levels of light, and its enviable corner position adds to a sense of privacy. Woods Road is a five-minute walk from Queens Road Peckham station and is conveniently positioned for wonderful leafy walks as well as a plethora of independent cafes, bars and restaurants.

The Tour

Woods Road is a tranquil location directly across from Cossall Park, with its green brick exterior seamlessly blending into the tree-lined streetscape. This apartment is composed of a lateral layout, with the sleeping quarters positioned at the rear and the living spaces at the front. Entry is to a spacious hall with ample built-in storage for shoes and coats. The hall forms an L-shape and has been partially painted with monochrome stripes.

In the voluminous open-plan kitchen and living room, dual-aspect windows beautifully frame the surrounding trees. There are far-reaching views across Cossal Park and direct access to a peaceful south-facing private terrace. Glazing elegantly wraps around the terrace, care of a floor-to-ceiling window that overlooks the living room and a French door that opens directly to the kitchen.

The kitchen itself showcases sleek and minimalist units equipped with Bosch appliances. The units are topped with Kensho composite stone, which harmonises with the calming grey tones. Adjacent to the kitchen, the dining space is demarcated by a rich green wall that echoes the brick exterior of the building and the deep green foliage of the nearby London Plains. Oak flooring runs underfoot.

Both bedrooms benefit from floor-to-ceiling windows that invite abundant morning sunlight from the east. In the main bedroom, a feature wall painted with Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball creates an ambience of calm. Plenty of storage is provided through a series of bespoke built-in cabinets. The main bedroom also includes a large en suite, elegantly lined with white metro tiles. Eco-friendly paint has been introduced in the second bedroom, injecting a bold burst of colour with a striking effect. Towards the end of the hall is a family bathroom, which features a bath with a shower and a floating vanity unit.

The building has secure entry, communal gardens, and a bicycle store.

Outdoor Space

Due to its corner position, the apartment has a remarkable sense of privacy, especially on the terrace. From this vantage point, tranquil views over the treetops to the south take in the revitalised Cossall Park. Recent improvements to the park have included the addition of a new path, the planting of fresh trees, and the establishment of community grow beds. These enhancements have transformed the park into a delightful space, perfect for leisurely strolls and fostering a connection with nature.

The communal gardens within the Woods Road complex are meticulously tended to, boasting an array of shrubs, trees, and fragrant, bee-friendly herbs like lavender. With a blend of well-maintained lawns and thoughtfully landscaped areas, the gardens create an inviting atmosphere for picnicking and unwinding outdoors. These meticulously curated grounds enhance the overall allure of the community, meaning all residents have a beautiful outdoor environment to appreciate and enjoy.
