Incredible Four Bedroom Victorian Home with Amazing Kitchen Extension.
This amazing, newly refurbished Victorian beauty makes ingenious use of space – and what a space it is! Spread over three bright, stylish floors you’re treated to four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two reception rooms, cellar and an amazing kitchen/diner. Ubiquitous bespoke storage points abound and include a nifty laundry/utility space and front bike store. The rear kitchen/diner opens full width to a beautiful landscaped, split level rear garden. A casual ten minute walk will get you to Nunhead station and trains to Victoria, Blackfriars, City Thames Link and St Pancras. Alternatively, you could walk a little further [or take a short bus ride] to Peckham Rye station, which has trains to London Bridge and Victoria, and the London Overground tube line, which offers direct access to Shoreditch, Islington, Clapham Junction and beyond.
A handsome door, in retro grey, opens into an entrance hall where neutral décor and stunning parquet flooring greets you. Step right into a beautiful double reception room separated by stripped double pine doors. The front section boasts a most wonderful contemporary stone mantel. A front facing square bay window is fitted with plantation shutters on the lower panes for privacy and the sash windows are double glazed and feature throughout. Stunning, recrafted cornicing continues throughout this room and into the rear facing reception where a period feature fireplace is flanked by integrated shelving on either side. From here, an open arch leads through to a sublime, full width kitchen extension which is bathed in natural light.(You can also access the kitchen via the hall). The space is fantastic! It’s bathed in natural light via skylights that run the full length of the space and draw your eye to a wall of fully foldable tri-fold doors. A polished concrete floor will knock your socks off (and supplies underfloor heating). A stunning Italian Statuarietto marble topped island features a Miele induction hob and oodles of extra deep storage. A further run of worktops and units on the far wall supplies a double Neff oven, more pots and pan storage and an American fridge. Stepping outside you’ll enjoy a sunny decked patio which rises up sleeper steps to a pretty lawn. Wooden trellising on three sides affords abundant space for greenery and no overlookers!
Back inside and wrapping around to the rear of the hall you find a neat guest wc opposite the entrance to a cellar. Heading upward you’ll enjoy an original staircase with white treads, risers and balustrades. A rich red runner runs up to the first return which hosts a rear facing bedroom with a period feature fireplace and cast iron schoolhouse radiators (that also feature throughout). A bathroom with fab white tiling, a period style suite and bath with rain effect shower completes this level.
The master suite spans the rest of the first floor with the bedroom spreading into the full width of the house to the front. The walls are grey and there’s more stunning cornicing and a feature fireplace with floral tiling. Double doors open rear to a dressing area which has bespoke wardrobes on either side. A nifty pocket door slides back to further reveal a sumptuous en suite with a freestanding tub, wide hand basin and a walk-in shower. The third bedroom sits on the second return and has plenty more storage and a neat, contemporary en suite. A final climb up (lit by an overhead Velux) reveals a fourth and final bedroom with plenty of storage in the eaves.
Nunhead boasts some lovely eateries. Napura and Four Hundred Rabbits have some lovely nosh. The Old Nun’s Head does a lovely craft pint and more tasty fair. They have regular events and themed evenings too. A book shop, butcher and fishmonger will save you the bother of leaving the locale too. The glorious and well kept secret that is Peckham Rye Park is just a stone’s throw away. Games fields, an ornamental garden, arboretum, bowling green, duckpond and outdoor gym will appeal to all tastes. Carry on through the park and further afield you’ll find the delightfully eccentric Horniman Museum, and Britain’s oldest public gallery, Dulwich Picture Gallery. For fabulous views across the whole of London head to the top of One Tree Hill.
