Nunhead Green, Nunhead

Classic, early-Victorian, bay-fronted two double bed terrace with deep front garden (/gated off-street parking) and generous rear garden, plus obvious potential for a rear-extension. 

The position is sought-after, in central Nunhead, and these houses very rarely come to market. The pretty terrace sits next to the older almshouses (Grade II listed in 1972, and built in 1852) which face Nunhead Green. The property is set within Nunhead Green Conservation Area, which was designated in 2007. 

Stations? Walk to Nunhead, Queens Road Peckham and Peckham Rye stations in 7, 12 and 15 minutes respectively. 

If you’re local already, you’ve probably clocked this house before, as the front garden has the most beautiful magnolia tree! In the front door and your opened-up reception rooms are off to your left. Stripped wooden floors, a wood-burner, alcove shelving and recessed lights are further welcome features. French doors (timber-framed) deliver you from the rear reception space - a natural dining room - to the side-return area of the garden. Your neighbour to the right (facing away from the house) has exploited their plot with building over their side-return, extending the downstairs space. You may like to do the same. 

A handy storage cupboard is under the stairs then straight ahead you land in the double-aspect kitchen. The kitchen’s a modern fitted one with pale wall and base units and solid wood counters. A back door opens onto the garden that’s fairly low-maintenance in design, and part-walled.

Upstairs and you first arrive at the immaculate bathroom (renovated under the current owners’ ownership). This boasts both independent shower and free-standing modern bath, plus monochrome detailing.

Up to the landing proper and a double bedroom sits off to your left while the master takes the width of the terrace (nearly 15 feet by over 11 feet). Two sash windows impress. Handy loft storage space is accessible from the landing.

Slap-bang in central Nunhead, but set back from Nunhead Lane by the Green, you’ll want for very little here. We rate Ayres bakery, Soper’s wet fish shop, El Vermut, Kudu Grill and Goodcup. The Old Nun’s Head is your local friendly gastro. A little further and you’ll find Peckham Bazaar on Consort Road (amazing Pan-Balkan fayre). 

The ‘triangle’ at the head of Rye Lane also has a fair bit going on. Check out Banh Banh,  Mr Bao and Funkidory cocktail bar here. The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex is also a short walk from your door for the trendiest of eateries, drinkeries, exhibitions and the like (there’s even a rooftop bar and cinema in the warm months).

Bellenden Road, Choumert Road and Rye Lane provide further options (Artusi, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati to name a few) and Peckham Plex Cinema is a long-established five-pound-a-film favourite. 

Camberwell, New Cross and Deptford are also close.

Small ones? Local primaries include Edmund Waller, Rye Oak and St Mary Magdalene C of E (all are Ofsted-rated ‘Good’). Banana Moon Day Nursery on Machell Road is also close and popular.
