4 Bedroom House For Sale
Artfully curated Homes for Heroes family house c.1921. End-of-terrace, side access, 3/4 bedrooms, spacious and light kitchen/diner, reception, bathroom and shower room. Fabulous community, quiet street with ample parking, close to three stations and terrific schools.
Built as family homes for servicemen returning from the First World War, these houses were markedly different. The concept was to provide spacious, modern residences that were close to amenities and in leafy areas. There is a cluster of these homes in Nunhead, close to the much-loved Ivydale Primary School.
The owners here have thoughtfully extended the house in the last two years at the rear to create a light and contemporary kitchen diner complete with Crittall-style French doors that open to the garden. Wide-plank engineered wood flooring is laid, cabinets are white gloss with wood detailing and theres an integrated dishwasher. Both the NEFF double oven and microwave are built-in and a Bosch five-ring as hob is inset into a high quality and durable Corian white worktop. There is a very useful closed off utility area with ample storage, a butler sink and space for a dryer and washing machine. The French doors open to the extensive garden that has a large stone patio, deep lawn and rear potting shed. Theres also gated side access to the (great size) garden from the street.
At the front of the house is a cosy, separate sitting room with a woodburning stove, wide-plank flooring, large window and floating alcove bookshelves. All these rooms have stylish and functional new cast iron radiators. Next door is the fourth bedroom/office.
All three first-floor bedrooms are doubles while the master has a sunny double aspect. The bathroom has a shower over the bath and white suite; the shower room has an encaustic tiled floor, double shower cubicle and deep blue walls. As part of the renovations the owners have installed new heating and electrics including mains wired smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
You can walk to three stations from here. Nunhead is 10/12-minutes, in Zone 2 (Victoria, Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon, St Pancras), Crofton Park is about the same distance (and on the Blackfriars to St Pancras line) while Brockley is a couple of minutes more for Zone 2 trains (London Bridge, Victoria) and London Overground links (Canada Water, Whitechapel, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington).
Ivydale Primary School is moments away and very well-regarded. Older children fare well at either of the Ofsted outstanding Harris academies at Peckham Rye, Kingsdale, The Forest School or The Sydenham School.
Youve two great pubs as your locals, the Waverley Arms and the Ivyhouse. Nunheads high street is a 12/15-minute walk for restaurants and bistros (Babette, Four Hundred Rabbits and The Habit) and a good selection of independent shops (a fishmonger, butcher, bakery, bicycle shop, florist, mini-mart and two fabulous gift/homeware shops). Nearby Peckham, Brockley, Honor Oak and East Dulwich offer superb restaurants, bars, cinemas, supermarkets and truly brilliant shops.
