You really can lose the children in this house. The main living space wraps around to the back, ending in a fine Italian-designed open-plan kitchen with bi-fold doors that open out to the garden. Kitchen appliances are neatly integrated, drawers are extra wide and cabinets are handleless and fitted flush to the ceiling. The L-shape allows for loud television viewing at the front of the house that won't destroy radio listening while you fix supper. There's a very fortunate separate reception across the hall, helping every member of the family enjoy the space they need. All in, the house measures an impressive 2250sq.ft; being on a corner plot has given it double bay windows at the front and bay windows to the side. The house has cutting edge heating and insulation systems that credit it very energy efficient.
Bedrooms are enormous. Two of the three doubles on the first floor have en suite shower rooms and there's a shared bathroom. Spectacularly huge second-floor bedrooms have large skylights and doors that open to plenty of eaves storage. There's also a useful space between bedrooms that can be used either as a cloakroom or a study/office area. The garden faces south west, has a paved terrace, off-street parking, tall fencing and is very private.
Commuters will appreciate being near three zone 2 stations: Queen's Road station is a 6-8 minute walk, quick to London Bridge (9-minutes), has Victoria services and London Overground links to Clapham Junction, Canada Water, Whitechapel, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington. Nunhead is just 3 minutes' walk for Victoria services and trains to Elephant & Castle, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras. Peckham Rye offers all of the above and is a 12-16 minute walk.
Local primary schools include John Donne (rated "outstanding" by OFSTED), Edmund Waller and St Mary Magdalene (both "good"). Older children can apply to St Thomas the Apostle, either of the Harris academies at Peckham Rye (all "outstanding"), Kingsdale or the new Charter School in East Dulwich. You can walk to Peckham and Bellenden Road for fantastic restaurants, bars, galleries and shops. East Dulwich is just across beautiful Peckham Rye Park for a thoroughly lovely shopping experience, while Nunhead's high street is 5 minutes' away for a revered fishmonger, traditional butcher, independent bicycle shop, sourdough pizza, craft beer bar, florist and very good pub on Nunhead Green. ...Read Less
