St Mary’s Road, Nunhead
Massive maisonette of 1846 square feet - over three floors of a handsome Victorian semi - serving up five double bedrooms, both bath and shower rooms, front and rear gardens plus a balcony, and a cellar (for storage) too. Share of Freehold.
Find your new pad on a wide and tree-lined residential Nunhead street, placing you just seven minutes by foot from both Nunhead and Queens Road Peckham stations.
You’re also close to Nunhead Green Conservation Area - which takes in Nunhead’s well-stocked independent high street and village-style green.
Take steps to the raised ground floor and your own front door (there is just one apartment below, with its own entrance). You open into a light and welcoming hall, where high ceilings impress and continue. It’s a right for the main event: a large and bright front reception room - of over 17 feet by nearly 14 feet, with two large south-facing sash windows onto the front garden (which is demised to your flat).
Adjacent is a natural dining room, of over 13 feet by over 11 feet. Lastly off the hall, is the property’s kitchen (over 14 feet by nearly 9 feet). A handy (windowed) independent laundry is set off this room.
The balcony is found en route to the first floor - a lovely spot for a tea or tipple, or for drying the washing. The first floor has two large double bedrooms and a small double, and bath and shower rooms. Your second floor has two further spacious double bedrooms.
Nunhead station has London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains as well (Farringdon, Blackfriars). It also puts on an impressive 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 relaxed vibe with a friendly community, with a central green, playground and community centre (by AOC architects), and excellent established staples which include Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet-fish shop.
Other treats include El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops, Goodcup, Kudu Grill, and Four Hundred rabbits (pizza). And there's a handy Co-Op with cash machine. 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 is a top-notch evening out. You’ll also find Beer Rebellion, Mamma Dough, Well & Fed and Blackbird Bakery on this little stretch by QRP Station.
SE15’s already firmly on the des-res map, but there’s even more to come - for example The Peckham Coal Line linear park.
Central Peckham - home to 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, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, 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, Peckham, 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, Hollydale and Ivydale primaries.
