Ansdell Road, Nunhead
Smart and chain-free Freehold house of 1773 square feet with a sunny low-maintenance garden (west-facing with a twist of south). It’s been owned only once - a modern build which blends exceptionally well externally with the Victorian houses on the street (big bay window, brick-built, sensitivity to proportions etc.) and offers up a really strong interior - boasting four double bedrooms, three bathrooms (two are en suites), and a generous office.
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 thriving high street, Victorian library and central green are also close, as is the up and coming area (there’s even an in-the-arches cocktail bar!) around QRP Station.
From the hall, the large and large-profile-tiled kitchen/diner (which extends over 23 feet) sits to your left. The fitted kitchen is a modern gloss one with loads of cupboards and snazzy granite counters.
Beyond you have a utility room, then the large and bright reception room which has solid oak floors and wall-spanning double-glazed folding doors onto the garden. The garden’s simply paved and fenced - a low-maintenance affair. Potted plants work great out here, or you could re-landscape to please! A downstairs w.c. completes the tour of the ground floor.
Up to the first floor, a good double bedroom sits to the rear - of over 14 feet by over 10. Next door is the property’s main bathroom, with contemporary white sanitary ware including twin sinks, and an over bath shower.
To the front of the first floor you have a huge master bedroom of 15 feet by over 14, with built-in storage to the near wall, and a smart and windowed en suite shower room.
The second floor hosts two further double bedrooms (super proportions, as downstairs); the front room has accessible eaves storage, built-in storage, an en suite shower room, and skylight windows. There’s also a skylit home office.
Nunhead has a London-village feel - with central green, playground and community centre (by AOC architects), and brilliant established staples - including Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet-fish shop. Newer and popular arrivals include El Vermut, Babette, and Four Hundred rabbits. Goodcup coffee draws the queues too.
The Old Nun’s Head is a reliable local. Other strong local pubs include The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby, and Skehans. And the house is just a 10 minute walk from the best restaurant we know in SE15: Peckham Bazaar.
You’re close also to all things Peckham in this spot - Kudu, Smokey Kudu, Mamma Dough and Blackbird Bakery are all great - near QRP Station. And you can walk just 16 minutes for Rye Lane; where you’ll find Peckham Plex Cinema (fiver-films-forever), 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 - gives you more options too.
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.
For more options, Camberwell, New Cross, Deptford, Brockley and Greenwich are all but a short journey.
Little ones? Edmund Waller and Ivydale are both close and well-regarded.
