Ivydale Road, Nunhead

Architect-designed and owned three double bedroom bay-fronted red-brick Victorian house. It’s just shy of 1300 square feet (excluding the cellar and loft spaces), with a walled and low-maintenance garden which faces west. 

It’s a really good spot, this: a popular residential street, with Ivydale Primary School close by. Walk 11 minutes to Nunhead Station, and 16 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 spacious and high-ceilinged entrance hall, complete with a built-in coat closet. Stairs lead up to your right, and up ahead, you’re treated to a long view through to a large picture window (with window seat and storage detail) onto the garden. 

But first turn left - here’s the large reception room of over 17 feet by over 15 feet. Welcome features include wide solid oak floor boards, a central fireplace, a large bay window, and custom-made cupboards and shelving to both alcoves. 

Set to the back of the house, you’ve got the beautifully-appointed and immaculately-finished kitchen/dining room, of over 21 feet by 12 feet. The underfloor heating, the bespoke Shaker-style units, the Butler sink, the solid wood counters, and the high-end integrated appliances (including an induction hob) all impress. Oversized glazed doors fold open to deliver you to the sunny garden. 

Up the stairs and to the front of the house you’ve got two double bedrooms; the first (to your right) is over 9 feet by nearly 12 feet, and next door is the largest bedroom - this one has the bay window, and is over 15 feet by over 13 feet, with a big built-in bank of wardrobes plus vanity area. 

The floor - and tour - is completed by the third double bedroom (of 12 feet by nearly 13 feet, with built-in closets again), and a full bathroom - which has a free-standing bath and independent walk-in shower, twin sinks, concealed plumbing and a pleasing T&G-clad wall. 

The large loft space can be converted with relevant permissions (many of the neighbours have chosen to do so) - should you fancy a future project once-in. And the generous basement is excellent for storing the things you don't need every day. 

The area? Nunhead’s high street has a strong offering of independent shops and places to eat and drink. Kudu Grill and 28 Well Hung are worthy of note. El Vermut and Mother Superior are fancy 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 most local to you, and Edmund Waller Primary School and Haberdashers’ (3-18) close as well.
