Buchan Road, Nunhead
Comfortable four bedroom Victorian terraced house of 1221 square feet, incorporating a converted loft suite, and an extension to the ground floor also. Potential remains to extend over the side-return space - should you so desire this as a future project. Parking is currently unrestricted on the street.
A lush rear garden stretching 50 feet (facing north-west: enjoy afternoon sun) completes the pretty package. We love the pergola/entertaining area at the foot of the garden.
This is a relaxed yet well-connected spot, with Nunhead Station just a three minute walk from your door, and the high street just a little further.
In your front door and you have your through-reception to your right. White walls, sash windows and stripped floors are welcome features. The front reception is over 11 feet by nearly 11, and the second is 10 feet by over 9. Custom-made alcove storage keeps matters neat. There's a dainty painted metal fireplace in the front room, with granite hearth.
Before you reach your kitchen/diner at the foot of the hall, you’ve got good storage cupboards to your left and right. Your kitchen/diner extends over 22 feet (with modern fitted glossy units with wooden counters), then the delightful dining area - with smart roof light, and timber-framed folding doors delivering you to the garden. Cerise pink rubber flooring is both practical and fun!
Up to the half-landing and you’ve got a large single bedroom to the rear (of over 8 feet by over 7 feet), with the property’s main bathroom next door. This has a white suite and over bath shower, with metro tiling to the walls.
From the main landing, a good sash-windowed double rests to your left, of over 10 feet by over 9 feet. A feature fireplace and stripped floors are further smile-bringers.
The twin-sashed master bedroom lies across the front of the house - it’s over 14 feet by over 10 feet. A pale pink hue graces the walls. Again, floors are stripped.
The second floor hosts a third double bedroom, with two Velux windows on the front roof slope, and two sashes to the dormer. You also have accessible eaves storage, and a modern shower room with contemporary suite, under-basin storage, and a further Velux window.
Nunhead Station (Fare Zone 2) has London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains also (Farringdon, Blackfriars). It also puts on a corker of a skyline view from the platform. Or you can walk 15 minutes to Queen’s Road Peckham station (also Zone 2) for London Overground services. Canary Wharf is easy via Canada Water, also destinations such as Clapham Junction or Shoreditch High Street.
Village-cool Nunhead has a central green, playground and community centre (by AOC architects), and excellent established staples including a bakery, wet-fish shop, and a huge pharmacy/post office. Newer and popular arrivals include Goodcup coffee shop, The Nunhead Gardener, Mother Superior bottle shop and deli, El Vermut bottle shop, and BARD4100 (fab pizzas and beers). There’s also a handy Co-Op and cash point!
The Old Nun’s Head and The Earl of Derby are reliable local pubs.
It’s a short stroll to Telegraph Hill's delightful parks with views and a weekly Farmers’ Market, and also Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. Locally, Nunhead Cemetery is a beautiful Victorian one (one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ no less!) with organised tours and beautiful big trees.
For more options, Peckham, Camberwell, New Cross, Deptford, Brockley and Greenwich are all but a short journey.
Local primaries include Edmund Waller, Ivydale and Hollydale, and Goslings and Banana Moon day nurseries are well-liked for smaller offspring.
