Tucked away off Forest Hill Road, sandwiched between several green spaces (which include Peckham Rye and a golf club) is a small number of roads well known for their stunning period properties and grandeur. Marmora Road is arguably one of the most popular roads in this catchment. Wide and tree lined, the road is full of imposing, ornate, period buildings which we believe buyers will find eye catching.
This property is a first-floor flat offering approximately 814 st ft of living space much of which is occupied by the substantial and striking lounge. The lounge has two southerly facing sash windows, a stunning cast iron feature fireplace with a marble surround as well cornicing, a ceiling rose and space for a table and chairs.
The kitchen has a breakfast bar and the bedrooms are both doubles although the second is a smaller double than the main bedroom.
The hallway is split level adding to the feeling of space, the shared garden is well presented and cared for by the residents and a nice space to have access too.
Located approximately 0.7 miles to Honor Oak station, the property is well positioned for local transport.
Travels times from Honor Oak to central London stations include:
London Bridge in approximately 15 minutes
London Victoria in approximately 35 minutes
Canary Wharf in approximately 24 minutes
As the property is located on the borders of three towns (Dulwich, Honor Oak and Peckham) you have your pick of boutique shops, great independent cafes, gastro pubs and restaurants. All three towns are well established and highly regarded for great social atmosphere.
Some of our favourite local eateries and drinks establishments can be found in all three towns and include Mama Dough (a sour dough pizza restaurant) and the award-winning Babur Indian restaurant, The Peckham Bazaar (Eastern Mediterranean charcoal grill), Mr Bao (a great Taiwanese restaurant highly rated by Time Out magazine), The East Dulwich Tavern and many more. You’ll be hard pushed to become bored of the ever growing selection.
As far as conveniences go, at the end of Marmora Road (along Forest Hill Road) you’ll find a selection of shops to service your everyday needs but should you need larger facilities, Dulwich offers a large Sainsburys, and Peckham offers a few retail parks where you will find the likes of B&Q, Argos, Toy’s R Us to name a few.
Peckham Rye Park which has a café, bowling green, outdoor gym, skate park, a community wildlife garden is a popular place all year round for activities. Whereas One Tree Hill offers some of the most breath-taking views across London and the city skyline, its a great place to chill out and take in the scenery.
Blythe Hill Fields which is approximately one mile away and is known by the locals for its recreational facilities and regular events such as its yearly festival for the local community.
