Hichisson Road, Nunhead
Offers in excess of £975,000.
Characterful and sensitively-extended three double bedroom Victorian terraced house of 1160 square feet, on a quiet residential street near Ivydale Primary School. A leafy and sunny garden of circa 40 feet - complete with garden office/studio - complete the pretty package. Freehold.
Find your new home 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.
Very welcome house-features include stripped floors, sash windows, custom-made window shutters, exposed brick detail, original fireplaces, and a wood-burner to the front reception room.
Parking is unrestricted on this and the surrounding streets. A walled front garden with detailed tiled path sets the house back from the pavement.
Open your front door directly into the reception room - of over 12 feet by nearly 12 feet. The stairs serve both function and feature purposes here (with dresser-style storage); your kitchen/dining area lies beyond - which stretches almost 20 feet to the oversized (timber-framed) glazed back door. A handy windowed downstairs w.c. is tucked in the corner of the kitchen area - clever! The fitted kitchen units are a timeless Shaker-style, teamed with open shelving, a ceramic Butler sink, and wooden worktops. A large roof light sits over the sink area.
The garden has brick-paved and lawned areas, and at its foot, find the impressive garden office/studio with power. Sliding double-glazed doors and a large central roof light keep matters bright.
Up to the first floor and to the front of the house (left at the top of the stairs), you’ve got the first double bedroom across the front of the house - with two sash windows and alcove storage.
Turn right at the top of the stairs, and to your right is a second double. Both the first floor bedrooms have attractive fireplaces and cute recessed closet/cubby spaces.
The bathroom rests at the back of the house, with sash and skylight windows, large profile tiling, both bath and independent walk-in shower, and modern sanitary ware and fittings (including separate spray attachments for both the bath and shower).
The second floor hosts a master suite: a big double bedroom with a neat en suite shower room, built-in wardrobes and accessible eaves storage, and large French doors/Juliet balcony.
Your local stations are Nunhead, Peckham Rye and Brockley; all are circa a mile from the house (and Fare Zone 2). And 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).
Your local pubs include The Ivy House, The Waverley, The Herne and The Angel Oak.
Village-vibe Nunhead is a short stroll, and has fab offerings such as the fishmongers FC Soper, Mother Superior wine shop/deli, Goodcup coffee, Kudu Grill and 28 Well Hung. There’s also a strong community centre by AOC Architects, by Nunhead Green.
At the tip of Peckham Rye Common, you have loads of hip eateries and such - including Mr Bao, Good Neighbour and Banh Banh, plus a trendy hairdressing salon. Peckham’s Bellenden Road, Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane are also close for yummy restaurants (we love Levan, The Coal Rooms, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl and Artusi), summer rooftop bars, Peckham Levels, Peckham Plex Cinema, and The Bussey Building. You’re also but a short stroll from East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane.
