House with 'London's most Instagrammable kitchen' goes on sale for £2.8million

Attention, anyone who’s got nearly £3million spare… your perfect property is now on sale.

For those who don’t have that money chilling in our accounts, here’s some nice property porn to enjoy, lust over, and use as inspiration when creating your interiors Pinterest board.

The home up for grabs is a five-bedroom house in Peckham Rye, south-east London.

It’s noteworthy for the very sake of being a massive house up for sale in the city, for a princely sum of £2.8million, but also because the Times has declared the home as having ‘the most Instagrammable kitchen in London’.

That’s quite the honour, but this kitchen does actually earn those heaps of praise.

With elegant green cabinets and glossy Arabescato marble countertops, every inch of this kitchen says ‘I have money and taste, but I don’t need to shout about it’.

There are golden taps (with boiling water at the push of a button, of course), brass handles that every interiors fan has been copying, Wolf ovens, a Brazza hob, a walk-in larder with a Bosch wine cooler, and underfloor heating.

Those green cabinets we mentioned? Obviously a Farrow & Ball shade – Carriage Green, to be exact.

Then there’s the sloped ceiling, finished with cool distressed wood for a touch of edge, and the styling for the estate agent photos; antique paintings and a bowl not of your standard fruit, but of tomatoes. The soap by the sink is Aesop, natch.

This is a kitchen of dreams and wonder, and while we can only dream of affording it, we can stow away the secrets of its styling and use it in our Sims home design. Or, one day, paint something in our future house in that same shade of green. It is rather classy.

So that’s the kitchen. The other parts of the house are lovely too, even if they’re not quite as hyped.

Built back in 1845, the 3,300 sq ft house has five bedrooms, is spread over four floors, and is surrounded by glorious greenery, making it an idyllic spot for a family.

It’s being sold through Roy Brooks, who describe the house as a ‘ravishing heirloom with a wow interior’… which, yeah, is pretty accurate.

Exteriors-wise, there’s a 185ft southwest garden with a summer house, and views include Peckham Rye Park.

As you enter the double-fronted home you’ll see two glorious receptions on each side of the hall, each with glazed doors that open to one of the two living spaces, complete with an open fireplace, cast iron radiators, and all that jazz.

The ground floor also has that ‘heavenly’ kitchen and dining room, as well as an airy and light conservatory with its own interior wisteria.

Go downstairs and you’ll find the cellar, but go up a level and there are five bedrooms, each large and bright.

Roy Brooks says the main bedroom has ‘possible one of the most beautiful views we’ve come across, through an enormous sash window’, while all three first-floor bedrooms have their original fireplaces.

Two of these rooms are connected by a Jack and Jill wet room, then there’s also a second wet room and laundry room on that floor.

Another floor up there are two more double guest bedrooms and another bathroom.


Did we mention the garden?

As well as being massive, the garden has a treehouse, a huge garden room (which could work as a playroom, an outdoor home office, or another general living space), and gorgeous magnolia, roses, ferns, and apple and loganberry trees.


In terms of location, the house is a 20-minute walk from East Dulwich station or Peckham Rye station so you can easily make your way around London, and locally there are plenty of bars, restaurants, yoga studios, and indepdent shops.

If you fancy making an offer or doing a virtual viewing, you can get in touch through the Roy Brooks website.
