Ansdell Road, Nunhead
Immaculate and chain-free terraced house of 1755 square feet delivered over three floors, with four double bedrooms, three bathrooms (two are en suite) and a guest lavatory too.
You’ll also enjoy a sunny low-maintenance garden (west-facing with a twist of south).
Completed in 2011, the boutique terrace development was designed to blend exceptionally well externally with the Victorian houses on the street (big bay windows, brick-built, sensitivity to proportions etc.).
This pleasing property has been much-enhanced and improved internally by the current owners. The kitchen and bathrooms are notably high-end, and we love the colour palette plus custom carpentry throughout the house. The house has great energy-efficiency credentials too: EPC rating 'B'.
The location is a residential tree-lined street between Nunhead and Queens Road Peckham stations. Walk all of six minutes to each. Peckham Rye Station is a 15 minute walk.
Nunhead’s village-feel high street, Victorian library and central green are also close, as is the up and coming area (there’s even an in-the-arches wine and tapas place) around QRP Station.
The ground floor is a huge open-plan affair, but you have clear zones too - thanks to the clever and thoughtful design. A large coat and shoe closet is ahead on entry, in front of the stairs. The fitted kitchen - with central island/bar - has timeless Shaker-style wall and base units, paired with marble counters.
Before you get to the main reception space you have a utility cupboard and a guest w.c. The reception room (oak floors running through here) has plenty of space for dining and seating - running over 17 feet by over 14 feet.
At the foot of the room, wall-spanning triple-glazed folding doors open onto the paved area and first tier of the garden. Enjoy afternoon sun here. Catch earlier rays deeper into the garden (which is low-maintenance with planted-out borders). The garden extends almost 50 feet from the back of the house.
Up to the first floor, first find a double bedroom - currently enjoyed as an additional reception room - set to the rear, with garden vistas. It’s over 12 feet by over 10 feet. The main bathroom is adjacent - with ceramic tiling, twin-sinks, plenty of storage, and a free-standing roll-top bath, with central taps and separate spray attachment.
To the front of the house you have a delightful twin-sashed master bedroom, with a bank of built-in closets to the near wall, and a private windowed (walk-in) shower room, with contemporary fittings and marble detailing.
A third double bedroom is set to the rear of the second floor (this one’s 13 feet by over 10 feet), then you’ve got a skylit study/hobby/dressing room next door, with access to a good storage cupboard.
The landing hosts another couple of useful built-in cupboards, then finally you have the fourth and final bedroom - of over 14 feet by over 10 feet, with two large skylight windows, built-in storage for clothes and such, and two pairs of cupboard doors to generous and accessible eaves storage. The second en suite shower room (cool monochrome detailing here) completes the tour.
Nunhead has your closest high street area: here we love Kudu Grill (book ahead), Goodcup, Ayres bakery, El Vermut, Mother Superior, The Old Nun’s Head pub and FC Soper wet fish shop. Plus a grocer and a butcher, and a Co-Op.
You’re close also to all things Peckham in this spot - Kudu, Mamma Dough and Blackbird Bakery are all great - near QRP Station. And you can walk just 15 minutes for Rye Lane; where you’ll find Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building, plus high street shops, markets and banks. You’re closer still to Peckham Rye Park and Common's 113 acres. East Dulwich - across the park - provides further options. Heading east, you’ll hit New Cross for nice pubs plus a cool contemporary art gallery (Goldsmiths CCA).
It’s a short stroll to the Telegraph Hill area’s Victorian parks with views, tennis courts and a weekly (Saturdays from 10am) Farmers’ Market. More locally, Nunhead Cemetery is a beautiful Victorian one - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ - with organised tours, butterflies, birds and beautiful big trees.
Little ones? Local primaries include Edmund Waller, Hollydale and Ivydale.
