Hichisson Road, Nunhead
Thoughtfully and thoroughly refurbished three bedroom house of 1277 square feet - over three floors - with a sunny south-east facing garden of circa 45 feet (complete with a generous shed at the end, of approx. 12 feet by 6 feet). The house is double-glazed throughout.
Find it on one of Nunhead’s prettiest and quietest residential streets, tucked away in a delightfully-leafy little pocket of SE15, just off the top corner of Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres.
Nunhead station (offering fast trains into Victoria and Blackfriars) is a 10-15 minute stroll. And Peckham Rye, Crofton Park, Honor Oak Park and Brockley stations are all walkable (from where you can quickly get the Overground).
In your front door and turn right for a generous reception room - of 17 feet by over 10 feet. Welcome features in here include engineered oak flooring, bespoke window shutters, and built-in alcove storage plus shelving.
Next up is your open-plan kitchen/dining room, complete with an independent two-windowed utility room. It’s a strong layout, and a lovely spot for day to day through to dinner parties. The slick fitted kitchen has a pleasing amount of cupboard/storage space, stone counters, a ceramic Butler sink (you’ve one of these beauties in the utility room too), and brick-style tiling. Two large skylight windows sit over the dining area, and wall-spanning double-glazed doors fold open to the mature garden (stone floor tiling flows out here too - nice decision!).
On the first floor you’ll find a carpeted double bedroom across the front of the building, and another carpeted double bedroom plus the property’s main bathroom to the rear. The bathroom’s a bright one - with window shutters, pristine white sanitary ware, neat tiling to floor and wall, and an over bath shower.
Up to the second floor to complete the tour! It’s a crisp and bright loft extension which delivers a master suite - a large double bedroom with a windowed en suite shower room, built-in closets, and accessible eaves storage.
Green space surrounds you here, and you're even close to a golf course. Peckham Rye Park and Common - with its cafe and kids' playgrounds - is well-enjoyed by fellow Nunheadians and Peckhamites, and you're also just a few minutes from the beautiful nature reserve of Nunhead Cemetery.
We’ve mentioned stations. 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).
Local schools include Ivydale Primary and Harris (boys' and girls' secondaries).
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. The Waverley and The Angel Oak pubs are also close.
Nunhead - with its village-vibe - is a short stroll and has lots of pleasing independent offerings such as FC Soper wet fish shop, Ayres bakery, Mother Superior deli, Goodcup, Kudu Grill, Four Hundred Rabbits and 28 Well Hung. There’s also a busy community centre by AOC Architects, just by Nunhead Green. Nunhead Library is a cute Victorian one on Gordon Road.
East Dulwich’s Lordship Lane, and Peckham’s Bellenden Road and Rye Lane are also close for more restaurant and shopping options.
