PERIOD PROPERTY WITH SOUTH FACING SUN TRAP GARDEN

A beautifully refurbished mid-terrace Victorian family home in the desirable Telegraph Hill conservation area. This generously proportioned period property has a double reception room with a large bay window and folding dividing doors so as to offer a versatile living space. The remodeled kitchen/breakfast room is bright and sunny with bifold doors opening into the garden. There is a handy downstairs WC and also a cellar offering ample storage. Upstairs there are three large bedrooms, all doubles, and a family bathroom. The stand-out feature is the approximately 50 ft south-west facing garden, divided into decking, turfed lawn and a ‘woodland’ area. This peaceful suntrap is a great space for entertaining, family barbecues, or simply unwinding.

The property is conveniently situated for local amenities, such as the delightful Nunhead green, and also Brockley village centre, both of which offer an array of independent shops and cafes. An excellent location for commuters given the short distance to Nunhead station (6mins walk) and also Queen’s Road Peckham and Brockley stations just a little further.

The ever-popular Telegraph Hill Parks are found a short stroll around the corner, and for families there are several playparks, playgroups and nurseries within the neighbourhood. For those interested in schools, there is a choice of Ofsted-rated Outstanding & Good options nearby, such as the well-reviewed Haberdashers’ Askes’ – primary all the way through to secondary – Edmund Waller Primary and Hollydale Primary.

The current owners have made considerable improvements, including installing a log-burning stove, landscaping the garden, boarding and insulating the loft, adding the downstairs toilet and creating the outstanding brand new kitchen. There is still scope to extend further, with the next-door neighbours recently adding a loft conversion to create an extra double ensuite bedroom, and many other properties on the road having undertaken a wraparound kitchen extension.

Some words from the current owners:

“We have really enjoyed living in this area. There is a genuine sense of community here, we have wonderful neighbours and it feels much more like a “village” than an urban area. We have had 3 children whilst living here, and we have made an incredible network of friends through the multiple baby and toddler groups available.

Telegraph Hill affords incredible views of the London skyline, but feels distinct from it in its relaxed, leafy atmosphere. There are an array of local delights, such as the pond, play areas and farmers' market in the Lower Park, the local pubs, Skehans and The Telegraph and regular community events such as the Telegraph Hill Festival and the Nunhead Arts Trail”.
