Full description

Found on one of Peckham's most coveted streets, this elegant Victorian property has the proportions and stature to rival many buildings in London. Covering four expansive floors, and comfortably over 2,200 ft2, the house is currently configured as three bedrooms (plus an office) but is endlessly adaptable – providing all the space, light and security that you could wish for in a family home of this era.

Talfourd Road is in the midst of everything great about this diverse and evolving corner of South East London. Moments from Bellenden Road and Rye Lane, you have an abundance of cultural and culinary possibilities on your proverbial doorstep, while Peckham Rye station is also within easy walking distance, so public transport is equally well-covered. It is a fabulous spot from which to explore SE15 and the city beyond.

Brickworks Says - For us, this property offers the best of both worlds: a beautiful and charismatic home as it stands today; and almost unlimited potential for the future.

The house has been lived in and loved for many years by the current owners, and much of the structural work has already been done. For example, a sympathetically designed, three-story extension has been built to the rear, which has added significant living space. Some aspects remain unfinished, so there is an amazing opportunity for someone with vision and creativity to make it their own. These include two of the bathrooms and the huge basement, which are essentially shells for the next owners to shape and mould to their needs. 

Overall, the house is already a warm and arresting place to spend time. The majority of the rooms have epic proportions, and the sunlight throughout is glorious. Many architectural elements jump out, but if we had to pick two, we would put forward the sweeping staircase, with its seamless and unbroken oak balustrade running the spine of the house – it's a thing of beauty. The other repeated joy for us is the centrally positioned windows on the raised ground floor. It's rare to have windows arranged this way, but they frame the space perfectly – particularly with the wood-panelling surround – and flood the rooms in natural light.

Points To Consider - The EPC gives a current Energy Efficiency Rating: F & Environmental Impact Rating: F

Part of the London borough of Southwark, the house falls into Council Tax Band E (£1,624.99 2018/19)

For ease of commute, Peckham Rye is a convenient option. Half a mile away on foot, it takes you directly to Clapham Junction one way, and Highbury & Islington in the other. The latter route stops at (amongst others) Canada Water, Whitechapel and Dalston Junction.

For younger children, the treehouse and slide will be a thing of great excitement. 

The house is already beautiful, but there is still more that can be done to realise its full potential. The scope may deter some, but for many, it will be a hugely creative proposition. Some ideas: creating an open-plan family room downstairs, with the kitchen leading onto the garden; moving the main bathroom to one of the newly built ones and re-appropriating the space as another bedroom, in turn creating a 4/5 bedroom house. With all the plumbing already in place, it would be a relatively easy job to do and an exciting one at that.
