Buchan Road, Nunhead
Impressive and extended five bedroom terraced house of 1345 square feet that’s had a top to tail renovation of the most stylish order, paired with a delighting and private west-facing garden of over 70 feet. The decor is on point and the finishes equally so. Parking is unrestricted on the street. The house also offers up side-return extension potential, and has a generous cellar plus lots of storage.
Find the handsome ready-to-go home on a quiet residential side street (the stuff of driving lessons). A relaxed yet well-connected spot; Nunhead Station is but a three minute walk. Freehold.
A neat front garden sets you back from the street. In the front door and the double reception rests to your left. We love the classy feature wall in here and the wood-burning stove. Two of the alcoves boast bespoke book shelving. From the hall you’ve the door to the cellar, then straight ahead is an independent dining room stretching 15 feet with two windows to the side return area. Beyond the dining room is the double-aspect (actually make that triple with the skylight too!) kitchen with modern units, and back door to the amazing and mature rear garden.
Upstairs first find the main bathroom and rear bedroom. The bathroom has high-end contemporary-style sanitaryware, and ceramic brick-style tiling. From the landing you have a master bedroom to the front of the house - at over 14 feet by over 10 feet, and a generous double next door. Both roms have built-in wardrobing. Up again and you’ve a large double bedroom of over 13 feet by over 8, with just gorgeous green views over treetops and rooftops. The master suite awaits - with skylight windows and Juliet balcony.
Nunhead Station (Fare Zone 2) has London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains also (Farringdon, Blackfriars). It also puts on a showstopper 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 Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet-fish shop. New and popular arrivals include Goodcub coffee shop, The Nunhead Gardener, The Habit cafe, The Beer Shop, Babette, and Four Hundred Rabbits. There’s also a handy Co-Op coming soon. The Old Nun’s Head and The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby are reliable local pubs.
It’s a short stroll to Telegraph Hill's gorgeous 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. Little ones or thinking of? Banana Moon Day Nursery is well-liked, as is Edmund Waller Primary School.
