Ivydale Road, Nunhead
Lovely first floor Victorian conversion flat of 685 square feet on residential Nunhead street, putting you just 5 minutes from Nunhead station. The flat’s in good order with pleasingly-spacious rooms, and has pretty green playing-field views from the rear of the property. Parking is unrestricted on the street. Leasehold.
A neat communal hall welcomes you in and this is shared with just one other flat. Open your own front door then ascend the stairs for the main body of the flat. Up a couple of stairs heading to the rear of the flat and you have a modern fitted and windowed bathroom to your right. Straight ahead is a really generous and double-aspect kitchen/diner of over 16 feet by over 10. Neat white units look and work great along one wall, and these are teamed with solid wood counters.
At the front of the building you have a huge reception room of over 17 feet by over 13. In here we love the south-west facing windows (including a big bay), the blue hue to the walls, the period fireplace, and the white painted boards to the floor. Adjacent is your double bedroom with white walls and more white painted floors.
Getting to work and all that? You are but a 5 minute walk from Nunhead Station for frequent Thameslink (Farringdon, Blackfriars) and Southeastern trains (Victoria). Queen’s Road Peckham and Brockley stations are each a 15 minute walk and on the London Overground network.
Just half a mile away, Nunhead Lane is your local and well-stocked high street with some great staples including Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop, alongside new independent offerings. On Nunhead Lane we like Babette for French fayre and Four Hundred Rabbits for posh pizza. The Old Nun’s Head has a good menu too and cool garden out back.
Local pubs include The Ivy House (with loads of regular events too) and The Waverley Arms. Your local park is Telegraph Hill Park with tennis courts, community cafe (the Hill Station) and London skyline views – walk there in 12 minutes. You can also easily take a brief stroll to enjoy Nunhead’s beautiful cemetery from this location (one of Them Magnificent Seven’).
