Consort Road, Peckham
Ever so charming three bed period semi-detached house with an east-facing garden extending 44 feet, plus a neat front garden too. Walk just 10 minutes to either Peckham Rye or Nunhead stations (both Fare Zone 2). Or it's just a couple of mintes further by foot to Queen's Road Peckham Station (one stop to London Bridge).
There’s a lot to love about this place! Some of our favourite bits are the deep hues to the receptions and bedroom (Farrow & Ball and Little Greene), the working fireplaces, two sets of French doors, and the handy pantry and utility closet. Freehold.
Consort Road is a long street connecting Peckham’s Queen’s Road to Nunhead Lane. From the street, looking north you see The Shard, and leafy Linden Grove looking south. Dr Harold Moody Park and Consort Road Park are really close, and it’s a short walk to Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres.
In your front door - landing in a pretty in pink hall - and turn right for the delightful through-reception with stripped and painted floorboards. The front room’s over 14 feet by 12 and the rear one is 10 by over 9. Open gorgeous timber framed original doors out here to the paved area of the garden.
The tiled kitchen/diner’s on the other side of the house - over 21 feet by over 12 with a skylight window over the dining area at the foot of the room. The kitchen units are Shaker-style.
Taking the stairs, first find a lovely windowed bathroom with traditional sanitary ware, central taps and a shower spray, and an over bath shower too.
Next you’ve got a large single bedroom - of over 8 feet by over 7, and two doubles - of over 14 feet by over 12, and of over 10 feet by over 9. The master has brilliant built-in wardrobes to the alcoves.
A top spot to call home! Babette (a neighbourhood restaurant with a French lean) is great and local at 57 Nunhead Lane, and Peckham Bazaar (pan-Balkan with an awesome wine list) is on Consort Road itself, on the corner of Sturdy Road.
Bellenden Road, The Bussey Building and Copeland Park, and Peckham Levels are also close for the trendiest of pop-up eateries, drinkeries, exhibitions and the like.
The ‘triangle’ at the end of Peckham Rye is also ablaze with cool places to eat and hang out. Mr Bao (Asian), Banh Banh (Vietnamese) and Pedler to name a few. There’s a trendy hair salon too (Blue Tit) and The White Horse comes to you from the folk behind The Montpelier on Choumert Road. The Rye is another nice local with huge beer garden.
Also very locally, Nunhead's high street area has been the subject of impressive improvements including a revived central Green and a community centre by AOC architects. Check out El Vermut, Bambuni deli, Soper’s wet fish shop and Ayre’s bakery; all independent staples.
Peckham Rye Park and Common is joyfully close. Nunhead Cemetery (one of ‘The Maginficent Seven’) is also close for a weekend wander and great skyline views.
For more options, cross the park for East Dulwich - here we love North Cross Road’s Saturday market. Camberwell, Brockley and New Cross are all close too.
Schools? Local popular ones include Ivydale, Bellenden Road and Edmund Waller. Your most local secondary is excellent: St Thomas the Apostle School (for boys) and Sixth Form College (co-educational).
