Gautrey Road, Nunhead
Architecturally-treated one bed first floor conversion apartment of 451 square feet, within a large Victorian semi-detached townie, on a residential Nunhead street that’s close to both Queens Road Peckham and Nunhead stations (just 8 and 6 minutes away by foot), and to Nunhead Lane’s independent high street and village-style green. One of just four apartments within the building, yours has the first floor position. Parking is unrestricted, on-street. Share of Freehold.
From the shared front door, take the stairs and reach your own front door. Once in, you’ll first find the bedroom to your left. It’s notably generous in size, with a large east-facing double-glazed window, and a bespoke built-in wardrobe/storage unit is a welcome feature to one wall. Opposite the bedroom you have a modern and windowed shower room with modern white sanitaryware and travertine tiling.
To the front of the building find your large reception room of over 14 feet by nearly 11. A large west-facing window features here, plus stripped, original boards to the floor, and an opened-up fireplace, and alcove shelving. In the right almost-concealed corner of the reception you’ll walk into the neat and well-planned kitchen, which has been recently renovated to a high standard. Shaker-style units and ceramic brick-style tiling look and work great.
What’s in the neighbourhood? Central Nunhead has strong independent staples: Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop, for example. Bambuni deli and The Beer Shop and Good Cup coffee shop are newer and popular, too. Fine establishments to eat and drink include El Vermut, Four Hundred Rabbits, The Old Nun’s Head and Babette (all are on Nunhead Lane).
Head to Peckham Bazaar on nearby Consort Road for the hottest table in SE15; find pan-Balkan cuisine and a deliciously non-standard wine list. Close to QRP Station, you have Blackbird Bakery, Beer Rebellion, Kudu and Mamma Dough restaurants. The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex is also a short walk from your door for hip eats, drinks, exhibitions and the like (there’s even a rooftop bar and cinema in the warm months). Rye Lane’s Peckham Plex cinema is also an important know-about with films for a fiver, as well as Peckham Levels and Frank’s bar.
The ‘triangle’ at the end of Peckham Rye park and Common's 113 acres (a 15 minute walk from your door) is busy with new places to eat, drink and be - Pizza Pickup, Pedler, Mr Bao, Banh Banh and Voodoo Ray’s being a handful. Bellenden Road, Choumert Road, Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane provide more food and drink options. We particularly rate Levan, Artusi, Miss Tapas and Ganapati. Telegraph Hill has pretty parks with London skyline views and The Hill Station cafe/pop up space. New Cross, Brockley, Deptford and Dulwich are all also close by, for further options.
