Ivydale Road, Nunhead
Extended three double bedroom Victorian terrace of 1524 square feet, excluding the cellar and loft spaces (the large loft is an obvious candidate for conversion, should you wish for more square feet once-in).
The property has loads of welcome period features. Bay windows, high ceilings and original Victorian fireplaces are among these, sensitively teamed with modern fixtures and fittings in the contemporary kitchen, and double-glazed windows throughout.
Your accompanying mature landscaped garden is 45 feet with lawn and paved areas, and it faces east with a twist of south. Enjoy plenty of sun.
It’s a good spot, this - a popular residential street, with Ivydale Primary School just over the road. Walk 11 minutes to Nunhead Station, and 15 to Brockley Station. Both are Fare Zone 2. You’re also blissfully-close to Peckham Rye Park and Common (walk nine minutes) and to Nunhead Cemetery - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ (walk three minutes). Parking is currently unrestricted on this and nearby streets.
A neat and well-stocked walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement. Open into a generous hall, with your two formal reception rooms off to your left. The front reception is over 13 feet each way, and the second is over 11 feet by over 10 feet. Part-glazed painted wooden doors connect or divide the spaces. Stripped floors, marble surrounds and alcove shelves and a built-in alcove cupboard all feature too.
An oversized part-glazed door delivers you from the second reception to the large rear room: a huge and bright kitchen/dining/reception room, with six skylight windows set over the former side-return space, and with wall-wide folding doors at the foot of the room. Equally well-suited to entertaining and day to day family-life, you’ve got distinct zones for cooking, seating, eating and music/study, but with an open-plan feel. Clever stuff.
You can also access the rear room from the hall, beyond the downstairs w.c. and utility cupboard on to your left, and the door to the basement on your right.
Up to the half-landing and your windowed bathroom is on your left. This has traditional-style white sanitary ware and fittings, and pretty in pink glazed ceramic wall tiles. Up ahead is the first bedroom. This one’s over 15 feet by over 10 feet, with a generous built-in closet, plus pale carpeting and walls.
From the landing proper your second bedroom is on your right - of 11 feet by over 11 feet - with a feature fireplace and window to leafy vistas.
The master bedroom takes the width of the house. It’s a whopper at over 17 feet by over 13 feet, with stripped floors, another lovely feature fireplace, and a feature papered-wall as well. Access the large loft from the landing.
Nunhead’s high street has a strong offering of independent shops and places to eat and drink. Kudu and 28 Well Hung are the newest arrivals. El Vermut and Mother Superior are popular bottle shops and Goodcup is the best coffee in town. Established local favourites are Soper’s wet fish shop and Ayres bakery. The Nunhead Gardener is a top tip too, close to the station. You also have an active community centre by AOC architects, and a village-style green with playground area.
And for more options, Peckham, New Cross, Brockley, Deptford and Dulwich are a short distance.
Local school provision is good - with Ivydale Primary and Nursery just over the road. Edmund Waller Primary School and Haberdashers’ Aske’s (3-18) are also close.
