Ivydale Road, Nunhead
Bigger-is-better Victorian red brick bay-fronted terrace of 1925 square feet, with five double bedrooms, both bath and shower rooms, and a seriously sunny south-east facing rear garden. Parking is unrestricted, on-street.
The location’s a winner as well: a popular residential street with a highly-regarded primary school (Ivydale, 3-11 years), that’s pleasingly close to Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres - walk five minutes.
You’re a circa 15 minute walk from three stations; Nunhead, Crofton Park and Brockley - the latter has Overground services as well as regular ones. Or stride across the open common for Peckham Rye Station (about 25 minutes by foot) or take a quick bus trip there.
The house has been tastefully and sympathetically renovated, including smart and well-considered extensions to the property’s original footprint: up into the loft and from the kitchen - providing a generous dining area/family room onto the garden.
From the high-ceilinged hall you have a traditional double-reception resting to your right, with stripped boards underfoot. Original tiled cast-iron fireplaces impress (both with beautiful marble surrounds). We also love the custom-made shutters to the sashes in the bay. Painted original double doors divide or connect the two spaces. The front room is over 14 feet by over 13 feet. The second reception is over 11 feet each way, with double-glazed woodgrain-finish PVC French doors delivering you to the wide side-return area of the garden.
At the foot of the hall is a handy downstairs w.c. to your left. Then straight ahead is your huge double-aspect kitchen/dining room running over 33 feet(!) to folding doors onto the garden, and with the property’s second bay window - a lovely feature. The room's been beautifully fitted out, with timeless Shaker-style units in two tones. The storage is simply fantastic. Further, you have underfloor heating here.
Your natural dining space - beyond the kitchen area - has two sash windows and two roof lights. Fold open the wall-spanning double-glazed doors here to your landscaped low-maintenance garden. This has paved, decked and shingled areas plus a pergola and handy shed (which is staying), and it gets absolutely loads of sun all day, thanks to its south-easterly orientation.
Up the stairs and straight ahead, find your first double bedroom, with pale carpet. Next door is the property’s main (windowed) bathroom, with traditional-style fittings including the over bath shower, and metro-tiling.
The rest of the floor hosts another double bedroom to your left (this one is over 11 feet each way), and a large bay-windowed master bedroom across the front/entire width of the house. You have painted boards to the floor, and the room measures in at of over 17 feet by over 14 feet. A further period feature fireplace is a classy focal point, and you've got custom-made shutters to the windows.
It continues! Head up to the second floor for bedroom number four: a roomy double with window to the rear, and then your light and large loft room which tops the house - of over 20 feet by over 12 feet, with Veluxes and a neat contemporary en suite shower room, plus accessible eaves storage.
You are a short stroll from both Nunhead and Brockley town centres - with independent shopping, restaurants and cafes. We love Nunhead’s staples such as FC Soper and Ayres bakery, plus newcomers like Goodcup and BARD4100. Close to Crofton Park Station you’ll also find The Rivoli Ballroom and The Brockley Jack Theatre, plus lots of independent cafes.
Peckham and East Dulwich are also close for cinemas, and more foodie options and independent shopping. Your most local pubs include The Ivy House and The Waverley Arms. Both have a friendly community vibe.
Green space? Peckham Rye Park & Common is your most local, and you're also close to Nunhead’s beautiful Victorian Cemetery - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’, plus Telegraph Hill's Upper and Lower Parks, boasting London skyline views, a weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market, and tennis courts.
