Stanbury Road, Peckham
Handsome three bed Victorian bay-fronted terrace on a quiet residential side-street, in lovely move-in nick, with a sunny east-facing garden. Close to Edmund Waller Primary.
Find it just a four minute stroll from Queens Road Peckham Station, 11 from Nunhead Station, and 15 from Peckham Rye Station. Nunhead’s central high street area is but a 10 minute walk. Parking is unrestricted on the street.
The house has a neat front garden. Once in, a delightful wooden-floored through-reception rests to your left; extending over 24 feet to the glazed back door to the side return area of the garden. In the front reception space you’ve got a wood-burning stove; the second reception has welcome custom-made storage to both alcoves. The front windows have bespoke shutters (these feature in the main bedroom too).
Moving through the hall you’ve got under stairs storage and an additional double-cupboard beyond. And opposite these is a handy windowed guest w.c.
At the foot of the hall, find the double-aspect kitchen/dining room - which runs over 16 feet to the back door and garden, and has another bay window at the near end of the room; a perfect spot for dining table and chairs/benches. The fitted kitchen’s a classy navy Shaker-style one, paired with wooden counters. Open shelving and metro-style tiling with contrasting grout also feature.
The pretty garden gets loads of early sun and has a healthy lawn, well-established (and colourful) borders, and a decked area by the house.
Up to the half-landing and the property’s bathroom is first on your left. A garden-view bedroom sits at the rear of the house and is over 10 feet by over 8 feet.
From the landing proper, find a double bedroom to your right (of over 11 feet by nearly 10 feet), and the master bedroom to the front - taking the width of the terrace. This room’s 15 feet by 11 feet and has two windows onto street views and a wall-wide, ceiling-high bank of built-in wardrobes to one wall. All the bedrooms have pale carpets. Access the loft (currently enjoyed for storage) from the landing.
The QRP area - a few minutes from the house - is attracting more attention than ever before, with a growing number of eateries, drinkeries and shopping opportunities; including Kudu restaurants and cocktail bar, Peckham Cellars, Beer Rebellion, Vintique (vintage furniture), Blackbird Bakery and Mamma Dough pizzeria.
Walk 10-15 minutes west for Rye Lane and Bellenden Road and further options which include The Bussey Building, Peckham Levels, Forza Wine, Levan and Artusi among other delights, and handy high street shops, pop-ups and markets.
Nunhead has your closest high street area - here we love Ayres bakery, El Vermut and Soper’s wet fish shop, and the pretty Victorian library on Gordon Road. Kudu are opening in the old Babette premises and 28 Well Hung has good reviews. Four Hundred Rabbits serves up good pizzas.
Heading east, you’ll hit New Cross for nice pubs plus Curzon cinema and contemporary art gallery - both on the Goldsmiths campus.
Little ones? Local primaries include Edmund Waller, Ivydale and John Donne.
Green space? Telegraph Hill’s parks are close (check out the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays at the lower park), plus Peckham Rye Park & Common’s 113 acres. Nunhead Green is much smaller but most local, and Nunhead Cemetery is not to be missed - one of ‘The Magnificent Seven’.
