Hichisson Road, Nunhead
Immaculate three bedroom Nunhead terrace of nearly 1100 square feet, delivered over three floors, with a neat garden of 26 feet. The house has been extended out the back and up into the loft (on-trend side-return extension potential remains).
The location is one of Nunhead’s prettiest and quietest residential streets, tucked away in a delightful leafy little pocket of ever-popular SE15 - just off the top corner of Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres, minutes from the beautiful nature reserve of Nunhead Cemetery.
Nunhead station (fast trains here for Victoria and Blackfriars) is your closest station. Peckham Rye, Crofton Park, Honor Oak Park and Brockley stations are also walkable/a short bus ride.
A neat walled garden sets the house back from the street. From your front door, follow the smart hall and open into a large sash-windowed dining space (gorgeous feature fireplace here) of over 13 feet each way.
Beyond the centrally-placed stairwell, you’ve got your front formal reception, of over 11 feet by over 9 feet, with custom-made alcove shelving and sash windows (with bespoke shutters to the lower panes).
The sleek double-aspect kitchen is set to the rear of the house, stretching over 16 feet, with timber-framed folding doors onto the paved area of the (pleasing, easy-care) garden. The fitted kitchen is a timeless Shaker-style, with wooden counters and a ceramic double sink.
Up to the first floor and you’ll find two double bedrooms and the property’s bathroom. The front bedroom is over 13 feet by over 8 feet, with two sash windows (bespoke shutters featuring again). Next up you’ve got your second double bedroom (a square one - 10 feet each way). Both bedrooms have big closets to one corner.
The sash-windowed bathroom is set to the rear of the house. It’s been recently renovated, and is a masterclass in classy bathrooms - with designer sanitary ware and high-end fittings (we love the twin sinks and oversized shower head particularly).
The second floor hosts a generous master bedroom of over 19 feet by over 11 feet, with Juliet balcony, skylight windows, a pale carpet, and custom-made wardrobes (plus accessible eaves storage).
Local schools include Ivydale and Hollydale (primaries) and Harris (secondaries), and there are good nurseries locally too.
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 puts on lots of live music and comedy gigs.
We've mentioned stations. Your closest bus stop is 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).
Central Nunhead is a short stroll and has loads of long-standing independent offerings such as FC Soper, Mother Superior deli, Goodcup coffee and Kudu Grill. There’s also a popular community centre (by AOC Architects) right 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.
