Tresco Road, Nunhead
Delightful two bedroom Victorian house with a slick and modern rear extension, and a mature 60 foot garden. The location is a really quiet tree-lined residential Nunhead street. Parking is currently unrestricted on-street.
Stroll 10 minutes to Nunhead Station, and 15 to Peckham Rye Station (both are Fare Zone 2). You’re also close to Nunhead’s high street and central village-style green, and to Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres; walk about five minutes to each.
Through your front door and you arrive directly into your huge opened-up reception room of over 27 by over 13 feet. Welcome features here include wooden floors, an open fireplace, white walls, and sash windows.
The stairs turn up the back wall, but before you head up there, take the door through to your large and light kitchen/dining room which stretches nearly 19 feet - with two roof lights, oak floors, a slick white modern kitchen, and entire-wall-wide double-glazed sliding doors onto the paved area of the garden.
Up to the first floor and to your left (with garden views) is the property’s bathroom, with oak floor, contemporary sanitary ware and fittings, and an over bath shower.
Along the corridor and the first bedroom is set to your right - this has a pale carpet to the floor and an alcove cupboard/closet and some fitted shelving.
The huge master bedroom takes the width of the house (it’s 13 feet by over 13 feet) and has stripped and painted floors, sash windows, and loads of built-in storage.
Such a characterful house, in a good spot too! Pleasingly-close to central Nunhead, you’ll want for little locally - we love Ayres bakery, FC Soper wet fish shop, Kudu Grill, Goodcup coffee shop, and El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops - to name a few of the independent businesses. There’s a handy Co-Op (with cash machine!) too.
The Old Nun’s Head is your local friendly neighbourhood pub. The Angel Oak (formerly The Rye) is also nice with a big beer garden. A little further and you’ll find Peckham Bazaar on Consort Road - for amazing Pan-Balkan fayre and wines (plus local celeb-spotting!). The triangle at the top of Rye Lane is also quite the gastronomic destination nowadays.
The Bussey Building & Copeland Park complex, Market Building, and Peckham Levels are also but a short walk from your door - for the trendiest of eateries, drinkeries, exhibitions and the like (including rooftop bars and rooftop cinema in warm months). We particularly rate Forza Wine, Tonkotsu, Mike’s Pizza, and Kanpai London Sake Brewery & Taproom.
Bellenden Road, Choumert Road, Blenheim Grove, Rye Lane provide further options (Levan, Artusi, The Coal Rooms, Made of Dough, The Begging Bowl and Ganapati are fine examples). Camberwell, New Cross and Deptford are also close.
Peckham Rye Park and Common and Nunhead Cemetery are near to you, for weekend strolls/outdoor exercise. And East Dulwich’s leisure centre is an 11 minute walk for modernised Victorian pool and gym.
