Hollydale Road, Peckham
Bay-fronted Victorian end of terrace house that's ready for extension, remodelling and renovation - just an eight minute walk from both Queens Road and Nunhead Stations (both Fare Zone 2). Freehold.
In current configuration, you’ve got two double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, and three reception rooms, a kitchen, lean-to, w.c. and shed at ground floor level. A sunny south-west facing garden extends over 34 feet.
In the original front door and turn left for the double-reception. The first reception’s over 13 feet by over 11 feet, with sash windows to the bay, and the second is 11 feet by nearly 10 feet.
At the foot of the hall you have an under stairs cupboard, and beyond this is a larder cupboard - opposite which you have a back door. Next up is a natural dining room, of 10 feet each way, with the house’s second bay window. Beyond the dining room is a dated kitchen with fitted wall and base units, plus window and a second back door.
Up to the half-landing and a generous bathroom is set to the rear of the house. From the main landing are the two double bedrooms; of over 11 feet by over 9 feet, and over 15 feet by 11 feet.
The QRP area is attracting more attention than ever before, with an impressive number of eateries, drinkeries and shopping opportunities; these include Kudu restaurants and cocktail bar, Peckham Cellars, Well & Fed, Beer Rebellion, Vintique (vintage furniture), Blackbird Bakery and Mamma Dough pizzeria. There’s a handy Tesco store and cash point by the station too. Walk 14 minutes west for Rye Lane and Bellenden Road and more foodie, social and shopping options.
Nunhead has your closest high street area. Here we love Ayres bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop, and the pretty Victorian library on Gordon Road. Also El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops. Peckham Bazaar (delicious pan-Balkan fayre and wine list) is an easy walk too for an incredible dinner.
Heading east, you’ll land on New Cross for nice pubs plus Curzon cinema and contemporary art gallery - both on the Goldsmiths campus.
Green space? Telegraph Hill’s parks are really close (check out the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays at the lower park), plus Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres. Local Nunhead Cemetery is beautiful and one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’. Nunhead Green is much smaller but close, as is little Kirkwood Nature Reserve (with Peckham Coal line coming soon!). Sydenham Woods and Dulwich Park are a short drive.
For more options, Greenwich Park and Blackheath and their village centres are an easy car journey (15 minutes), bus or cycle ride. East Dulwich’s lovely Lordship Lane is close too, and North Cross Road’s Saturday market (alongside its cute shops) is not to be missed.
Local schools and nurseries are very good and include Edmund Waller (Primary), Ivydale, Hollydale, and St Thomas the Apostle (Secondary and Sixth Form College).
