Kimberley Avenue, Nunhead
Architecturally-treated and sensitively-renovated extended Victorian terrace over three floors, covering some 1668 square feet. Chain free.
This bay-fronted beauty hosts four double bedrooms, both bath and shower rooms (plus a downstairs w.c./utility), a fabulous rear room - which incorporates reception and kitchen spaces, and a formal through-reception. The house is double-glazed throughout with a new heating system, and it has a smart landscaped garden of 30 feet (which has brilliant built-in bench seating).
The location? Is a popular residential street with pretty Victorian street lamps. You’re really close to Nunhead Green Conservation Area (walk two minutes) - with its central green, community centre and village-style high street.
Parking is currently unrestricted on the street. And Nunhead Station is a three minute walk. Or it’s 12 to Queens Road Peckham Station.
In your pink front door to a smart tiled hall. Oversized glazed double-doors make entry to the main double-reception a bit of an event! And this decision keeps the hall bright as well. Swish solid oak flooring runs the length of the room: over 24 feet. Bespoke shutters grace the lower panes of the south-facing bay window.
At the foot of the hall, take a couple of steps down to the jaw-dropping main room - which extends over 32 feet to wall-spanning folding doors, with plenty of box-ticking glazing, plus exposed brick and steel detail. It’s a generous and flexible space suiting family life/entertaining a crowd/both.
The high-end fitted kitchen (plentiful cupboard and counter space here) is by Harvey Jones, with a 10 year guarantee. And new appliances are included in the sale; including a large American fridge with plumbed-in cold water. Set off the kitchen, you’ve got a guest lavatory/utility room.
Up to the first floor and you’ll first find the main bathroom to your left, with high-end sanitary ware and fittings, and with a (free-standing) bath and independent shower. To the rear is a smart carpeted double bedroom to verdant vistas.
From the main landing you’ve got two further (carpeted) double bedrooms. The master bedroom takes the width of the terrace (it’s over 14 feet by over 11 feet), and has two windows to leafy street views.
Next up is a welcome dressing space which leads onto a contemporary shower room (monochrome detail here along with herringbone ceramic tiling), and your fourth and final bedroom - in a designer hue, with a built-in closet. Easily-accessible eaves storage is also accessed from this room.
Nunhead station has London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains too (Farringdon, Blackfriars). It also puts on a super skyline view from the platform! Use QRP for London Overground services. Canary Wharf is easy - via Canada Water, as are destinations such as Clapham Junction or Shoreditch High Street.
Nunhead has a relaxed vibe with excellent established staples which include Ayres bakery and FC Soper wet fish shop. Other recommendations include Goodcup (coffee shop), Mother Superior and El Vermut (posh bottle shops), Kudu Grill and The Old Nun’s Head. A handy Co-Op is also on hand.
Walk just 11 minutes to Consort Road for delicious Balkan flavours at Peckham Bazaar.
Central Peckham and cool Rye Lane is but a 15 minute walk, for such delights as Peckham Levels, and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex, plus Market Building. Walk another few minutes to Bellenden Road - with its independent high street and lovely shops, cafes and restaurants like Artusi, Ganapati, Anderson’s, Flock & Herd and Review book store.
It’s a short stroll to Telegraph Hill's gorgeous parks with views and a weekly Farmers’ Market (Saturdays from 10am) and also Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. Locally, Nunhead Cemetery is a beautiful Victorian one - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ - with tours, views, and big beautiful big trees.
For more options, Camberwell, New Cross, Deptford, Brockley and Greenwich are all but a short journey.
Little ones? Really locally, Banana Moon Day Nursery is well-liked, as are Edmund Waller, Ivydale and Hollydale primaries.
