Machell Road, Nunhead
Best and final offers invited by 2pm, Tuesday 17th May.
Architecturally-treated four double bedroom terraced house of over 1700 square feet, over three floors, with both bath and shower rooms. A part-walled landscaped garden of 34 feet completes the package. Chain free.
Parking is unrestricted on the street. And Nunhead Station is a four minute walk, or it’s 12 to Queens Road Peckham Station.
Prior to its current ownership - and its substantial extension and high-end renovation - the house had been in the same family since being built in 1907! Welcome features are at every pivot, and include new double-glazed box sash windows to the front elevation, triple-glazed roof lights (one to the ground floor and one on the top floor), an independent laundry, engineered oak floors, and a wow-factor rear extension which is clad with charred-wood.
The location is a delightful residential back-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.
In the front door and a formal through-reception rests to your left. Boasting a smart period fireplace (with marble hearth) and beautifully-laid herringbone parquet flooring, the room extends over 21 feet.
Access the rear room via the reception or from the hall (if accessing from the hall you’ll note a handy downstairs w.c. to your right and a laundry room to your left, on entry). It’s a sensational space of over 25 feet by over 14 feet. The near end of the rear extension hosts a beautiful bespoke British-made Shaker-style kitchen, by GR Carpentry. A central island (with bar area) and solid marble counters further impress. The kitchen also sports a boiling water tap, a Siemens induction hob, integrated double oven and microwave, integrated dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and additional bottle fridge (all included in the sale). The laundry room has a smart Samsung washing machine.
The natural dining space at the far end of the room sits next to slick wall-spanning doors onto the paved area of the garden. It’s so large an area that you can pop a sofa or armchairs here alongside table and chairs.
Up to the first floor, from the half-landing you have a neat double bedroom to garden vistas, and a swish bathroom with contemporary fittings (British-made LUSSO taps, shower and controller).
From the main landing, find another double bedroom of over 10 feet by over 9 feet, and a large twin-sashed double bedroom across the front of the house (of over 14 feet by over 10 feet). Another fireplace features in here.
The entire top floor is a deftly-done master suite with a shower and dressing area set down a few stairs from a large and light master bedroom; which is over 18 feet by over 14 feet. It’s all about the glazing up here - really special! The bedroom area has two large skylights and a big picture window. Eaves storage is easily-accessed from the bedroom.
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 10 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 organised tours, and beautiful big trees and views.
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.
