Hichisson Road, Nunhead

Best and final offers invited by midday, Monday 30th May.

With its beautiful award-nominated rear extension (Draper Studio) and south-east facing garden and garden studio, this three-bedroom Nunhead semi over three floors will have you at hello.

Found on one of Nunhead’s prettiest and quietest residential streets, this light and spacious home is tucked away in a delightfully-leafy little pocket of SE15 - just off the top corner of Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres, and only minutes from the beautiful nature reserve of Nunhead Cemetery.

Nunhead station (offering fast trains into Victoria and Blackfriars) is little more than a 10-minute stroll. Only marginally further are Peckham Rye, Crofton Park, Honor Oak Park and Brockley stations, from where you can quickly get the Overground to Clapham, London Bridge, or Shoreditch.

Step through the front door and you are into the opened-up double-reception of over 24 feet by over 13 feet. In here, welcome features include the (working) open fire, bespoke shutters to the lower panes of the original sash windows, engineered oak flooring, and custom-made storage. 

Beyond this room you’ll find the incredible kitchen/dining room - of over 16 feet by over 12 feet, with top of the range floor-to-ceiling sliding doors as well as beautiful oak beams that offer cascading light. The extension deservedly found its way onto last year’s New London Architecture (NLA) ‘Don’t Move, Improve!’ shortlist. Polished concrete floors (with underfloor heating) stretch out into the garden, while the matching concrete worktop, custom-made kitchen units and open shelves, and the roof light over the former side-return space are all brilliant design features.

Up the stairs and the property’s bathroom rests to the rear of the house. Recently renovated, it boasts contemporary sanitary ware and fittings, and delivers both a free-standing bath and walk-in shower. Sash and skylight windows offer plenty of light. 

The first bedroom is 13 feet by nearly 8 feet, with garden vistas from its original timber sash window. The master bedroom, next door, takes the width of the house, and is over 13 feet by over 11 feet with built-in closets. Both of these bedrooms have original stripped timber floors. 

Up to the second floor and you’ll find a further double bedroom with great views, good accessible eaves storage, and further built-in draws and cupboards.

The landscaped garden is a sunny one that offers fantastic privacy. You’ll enjoy climbing roses as well as Med-style mature planting - most notably an olive tree whose canopy offers lovely dappled shade in the summer months. The spacious Crittall-doored garden studio has power and can be used for home working, exercise, or even hosting occasional guests. 

One of the loveliest pubs in south London - The Ivy House, on Stuart Road - is just around the corner. It’s the first cooperatively owned pub in London and hosts loads of live music and comedy gigs.

Your closest bus stop is less than two minutes away on Cheltenham Road (you’ve got the 484 to Kings Hospital/Denmark Hill Station, and the 343 to Peckham and New Cross Gate Station). 

Nunhead - with its village-vibe - is a short stroll and has a host of independent offerings such as the unbeatable fishmongers FC Soper, Mother Superior deli, Goodcup coffee, Kudu Grill, Four Hundred Rabbits and 28 Well Hung. There’s also a strong community centre by AOC Architects, by Nunhead Green. 

East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane, and Peckham’s Bellenden Road and Rye Lane are also close for more restaurant and shopping options.
