Surrey Road, Nunhead
Three bed, two bath semi-detached bay-fronted house (one of a pair) in great shape and of 1207 square feet, with a delightful rear garden, front garden and side access too - all this, and you're close to Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres and to volunteer-run Aquarius Golf Club.
There's obvious extension potential here (side-return/loft/both!) and parking is unrestricted in this neighbourhood, on-street.
Your local stations are Nunhead, Peckham Rye and Brockley; all are circa a mile from the house and Fare Zone 2.
A modern timber gate delivers you to the front garden. In the front door and your main reception sits to your left. It’s over 14 feet by over 11, with stripped boards, a handsome fireplace, and bespoke shutters to the windows (these pleasingly feature a lot throughout the house). The second reception is currently enjoyed as a study and is over 11 feet by over 9. It would make a lovely formal dining room or occasional guest room too.
At the rear of the house you’ve a delightful kitchen/dining room of 22 feet by 10, with French doors onto the decked and lawned garden. The fitted kitchen is a timeless Shaker-style with solid wood counters. Stripped floors continue through here. At the foot of the room is a large space for casual to formal dining.
Up the stairs you’ll first find both bath and shower rooms (both are windowed and the bathroom has a traditional-style suite including a free-standing bath), and beyond, a bedroom to garden views of 10 feet by over 8.
At the front of the house, your bright master bedroom is 15 feet by over 14, and next door is the third bedroom of over 11 feet by over 9. You can access generous loft storage from the landing.
Green space? Peckham Rye Park & Common is your most local green space (walk three minutes) - comprising a Victorian Park and historic common; a pleasant refuge for both the local community and wildlife. It’s home to ornamental gardens, streams, woodland and a lake, playgrounds and a cafe, plus outdoor gym.
The park has been awarded Green Flag status and has a long, rich and engaging history; it was recorded as being cultivated before the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century.
At the tip of the common you have a host of cool eateries and cafes including Mr Bao, Bahn Bahn and Pedler. Bellenden Road, Blenheim Grove and Rye Lane are also close for yummy restaurants (we love Levan, Ganapati, The Begging Bowl and Artusi), cool bars and pubs, Peckham Levels, The Bussey Building, and Peckham Plex Cinema (fiver-films-forever).
You’re a short stroll from Nunhead and East Dulwich’s town centres too. In Nunhead we like Babette and El Vermut, plus Ayres bakery and Soper’s wet fish shop. Brockley’s also close for more options, and for pubs - The Ivy House, The Waverley, The Herne and The Rye Hotel are all lovely locals.
Local schools are good; your most local primary is Ivydale.
