Guide Price £730,000
Delightful three bedroom maisonette of over 1000 square feet, over first and loft floors, with its own entrance, a private and sunny section of garden, and a garden studio/office too.
The property has lots of welcome features including sash and skylight windows, old school style radiators, wooden floors and a neutral decorative scheme. Leasehold - with 106 years remaining.
Find your new home on a wide and tree-lined residential Nunhead street, placing you just an eight minute walk from both Nunhead Station and Queens Road Peckham Station (Overground services as well as regular ones from here).
You’re also close to Nunhead Green Conservation Area - which takes in Nunhead’s well-stocked independent high street and village-style green.
Open your own front door into a handy lobby then take the stairs up to the landing area. Ceilings are pleasingly high. To the rear of the building you’ve got a smart windowed bathroom with traditional- style sanitary ware and roll-top bath. Next door is the very generous master bedroom of over 13 feet each way. A large sash delivers verdant vistas.
Next door is an even larger room - the reception; of over 13 feet by over 14 feet. Twin arched sash windows feature, plus a cute fireplace. And you’ve useful alcove storage as well.
A modern fitted kitchen completes the tour of this floor. Here, you’ve got smart white wall and base units and wooden worktops.
Up to the second floor for the rest of the bedrooms: a large double and a large single. Both have carpets and neat white walls.
Access the garden via the side of the house (it’s semi-detached, one flat below you). It gets lots of sun being south-west facing, and comes complete with a gorgeous garden studio with power.
Nunhead station gives you London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains as well (Farringdon, Blackfriars). It also puts on a nice skyline view from the platform.
Or you can stroll north to Queens Road Peckham station (also Fare Zone 2) for London Overground services. Canary Wharf is easy via Canada Water, also destinations such as Clapham Junction or Shoreditch High Street.
Nunhead has a Victorian library, central green, playground and community centre (by AOC architects), and excellent established staples which include Ayres bakery and Soper's wet-fish shop. Newer popular arrivals include El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops, Goodcup, and 28 Well Hung. A new Co-Op has also recently opened (giving Nunhead its second cash point!).
The Old Nun’s Head is a reliable local, and Peckham Bazaar is a big favourite of ours (pan-Balkan menu) on nearby Consort Road. Kudu (South-African) restaurant on Queens Road - and Smokey Kudu for cocktails after - is a top-notch evening out (the Kudu Collective will also soon be opening doors on Nunhead Lane). You’ll also find Beer Rebellion, Peckham Cellars (their wine boxes are great!), Well & Fed, Mamma Dough and Blackbird Bakery on this little stretch by QRP Station.
Central Peckham and cool Rye Lane is an under-15 minute walk, for such delights as Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex, plus Market Building and various markets.
Walk another five minutes to Bellenden Road with its independent high street, and lovely shops, cafes and restaurants - examples Artusi, Ganapati, Flock & Herd and Review book store.
SE15’s already firmly on the des-res map, but there’s even more to come - for example The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
It’s a short stroll to Telegraph Hill's gorgeous parks with fabulous views and a weekly Farmers’ Market (Saturdays from 10am) and also Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. Nunhead Cemetery is a beautiful Victorian one - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’ - with beautiful big trees and loads of history!
For more options, Peckham, Camberwell, New Cross, Deptford, Brockley and Greenwich are all but a short journey.
Little ones? Banana Moon Day Nursery is well-liked, as are Edmund Waller and Ivydale primaries.
