Custom build at Blenheim Grove
Create your own perfect home and choose your layout, spec, and style
About the Development
Blenheim Grove is a custom build development – customisable houses and apartments – in Peckham Rye, just moments from Peckham Rye station.
Custom build means that you get to choose your layout, spec, and style, without being restricted by the choices available in new build, or the hassle of buying a fixer upper and ripping it all out.
Designed by local architects, Poulsom Middlehurst, and developed by Unboxed Homes, the homes are crafted with a distinctive split-level layout that allows each room to be spacious and naturally lit.
With the double height voids, it removes the need for landings and hallways. The houses are set over 3 stories with a roof terrace, bike storage and affordable running costs.
Blenheim Grove has also been featured in the Sunday Times.
In accordance of Section 21 of the Estate Agents Act 1979, this property is owned by a director of Zog Enterprises Ltd t/a Rare Space

In the past 20 years, Peckham has been significantly revitalised with the emergence of galleries, restaurants and bars. A £290 million regeneration plan during the late 1990s, in addition to an inundation of artists and improvements to transport links have had an immensely positive impact in the area.
Peckham Rye is central to the area and it encompasses 2 large green spaces: the wilder common to the north and the park to the south. The Victorian park, which has been redecorated, now features ornamental gardens, streams and woodlands, in addition to a cafe and adventure playground. Peckham also borders Burgess Park, which is Southwark’s largest green space. It is furnished with football and cricket pitches and a large playground, as well as a BMX track.

Blenheim Grove fit out
The purchaser at House 56, Luke, has chosen a radical design for his fit-out. Not only has he got creative with how he divided his house up into two separate suites, he’s increased the already large void.
Creating your own home from the ground up is a monumental task. But there is another option for buyers seeking something more personal. With a “custom build”, you work alongside a specialist self-build developer.
You can buy an off-plan property which the developer will allow you to customise. Building firms can also gather a group of would-be homeowners who then become the clients, and the company acts as their contractor to help with finding a site and designing their homes.
Another option on offer at the moment would be to buy a house at Blenheim Grove, Peckham, a boutique development by Unboxed Homes on a once derelict plot. The land was bought by Unboxed last year and it now has planning permission to build five houses. It will build the super-structure of the homes, leaving the fitting out to the new owners.
