This exceptional 4-bedroom freehold detached house has been renovated and rebuilt from top to bottom. Located in a secluded area in Choumert Road, just yards from the smart shops and restaurants of Bellenden Road, this house enjoys easy access to Peckham Rye station with its 24 trains per hour to central London, Clapham Junction, Canary Wharf and beyond.
The house has been fully re-designed and wholly project-managed by Niki and Liz Borowiecki for BoHo Property Developments. Niki and Liz's work regularly features in London architecture festival 'Open House London'. The property is imaginatively designed and impressively constructed. BoHo specialises in outstanding, architect-led, sustainable new-build and top-to-toe refurbishment in South-East London.
Approaching the house you notice the cedar timber cladding and private gated entrance which takes you through a smart, well-lit path to the house. Internal accommodation measures approximately 1520 sq ft and the space has been cleverly configured with a bespoke oak and glass staircase situated in front of a spectacular two-storey glass wall, flooding the house with natural light; a fantastic welcome! Each window also offers something different to look at, with a particular connection to nature, Silver Birches and hellebore “Winterbells” in the courtyard garden at the back, and more birch trees and a white flowering cherry tree at the front, along with pink flowering viburnum tinus "Eva Price" and heuchera “Plum Pudding”, for winter colour.
The ground floor features a large, open-plan kitchen / dining / living room which leads onto a handsome, front south facing garden - ideal for entertaining! The courtyard rear garden is accessed via glazed double doors from the kitchen, offering quiet seclusion and privacy. The clever use of the cedar wood as panelling around the external walls of the courtyard provides continuity with the earlier panels. The kitchen features a Porcelain tiled floor, solid oak worktops and a range of appliances which include a Fisher & Peykel range cooker with extractor hood and a Bosch dishwasher. There is plenty of work space in the kitchen, and a utilities area, quietly tucked away, housing the Valliant combi boiler, plumbing for washing machine and room for a tumble dryer. Premium, rustic oak hardwood flooring flows throughout the ground floor which offers plenty of practical space, including a large study area at one end of the house, which could have several uses (Cinema Room, Meeting room) and has its own entrance. The spacious ground floor bedroom includes a shower room, particularly useful for guests or as a nanny room.
The upper hallway enjoys delightful touches such as an inbuilt book-case and three charming windows. Three bedrooms are situated on the first floor. A family bathroom serves two bedrooms, while the master bedroom has an en-suite shower / WC. Each bathroom has Catalano and Bette sanitary ware and stainless steel ladder tower rails. Large triple-glazed windows and skylights ensure that these are light, bright spaces. The bathrooms are carefully finished with Porcelain tiles.
The house looks as stunning in the night as it does during the day, with clever use of LED twinkling downlights for overall illumination and LED feature strip lights around the rooflights and double height window onto the courtyard garden.
High efficiency triple-glazed powder coated aluminium windows and external doors, and large double glazed roof lights provide exceptional insulation. The external walls and roof have been very well insulated overall, which will make the house comfortable and economical to live in.
