Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This spacious three double bedroom house is to be found on Lanbury Road, one of a series of quiet roads off Ivydale Road in Nunhead. Originally built as one of the "Homes for Heroes" after the First World War, it has been extended and transformed by its current owners into a stylish contemporary family home, which certainly has the wow factor and has appeared in the interior design section of The Guardian.

This beautiful home is equidistant from the centre of Nunhead, with its almshouses, pubs and independent shops gathered around Nunhead Green (a conservation area which has had 1m of funds earmarked for regeneration), and the open spaces of Peckham Rye, One Tree Hill and Nunhead Cemetery. Within a few minutes walk you can be enjoying a drink in either of the Waverley Arms or Ivy House pubs and the shops, bars and restaurants of East Dulwich and Peckham are also just a short bus ride away.

Ivydale primary school is literally a stone's throw from the property. The house is also within the catchment areas of Harris Boys and Girls schools and Haberdasher Askes Temple College as well as being just a short walk from a good nursery.

The property is situated some 15 minutes' walk from Nunhead railway station, which provides direct services into Victoria (15 mins), Blackfriars (16 mins), City Thameslink (18 mins) and King's Cross/St.Pancras (24 mins). Nunhead is also only a few minutes by train to the London Overground services at Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye, which provide connections to the Jubilee line tube services to London Bridge and Canary Wharf. Both Honor Oak Park and Brockley railway stations are also within easy striking distance and a range of bus services are also available close by but do not travel along Lanbury Road itself.

You approach the house through its pretty front garden and enter into a small vestibule. Directly in front of you is the entrance to the reception room. This lovely bright room, with its engineered wood flooring, has a wide paneled sash window looking out onto the front garden. There is access from the reception room to both a large storage cupboard and the bathroom. The stylish bathroom is fitted with a white three-piece suite, comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and handbasin, as well as a heated towel rail. The floor and walls are tiled in grey and there is a useful storage cupboard where the central heating boiler is housed. A paneled double sash window looks from the bathroom onto the side return of the property.

Returning to the reception room, a doorway leads to the rear living space, which was extended by the current owners in 2011 and is zoned into kitchen, dining and seating areas. The kitchen area is fitted with a range of white units with a composite stone worksurface. There is an integrated oven and hob, washing machine, dishwasher, fridge and freezer. The stainless steel sink is fitted with designer taps and a separate tap for both boiling and filtered cold water. The spacious dining/seating area has a large rooflight as well as 5 metre fully glazed bifolding doors which, when fully opened, create an indoors outdoors living area looking onto the garden. This rear living area, which has underfloor heating, also has a full wall of storage concealed behind slick white doors.

Returning to the entrance lobby, a staircase leads to the first floor where, on the landing, there is access to the boarded loft space. On the first floor you will find the three double bedrooms. The master bedroom, with its pretty period cast iron fireplace, is to the front of the property and has three sash windows looking onto the street. The master bedroom also has an ensuite cloakroom fitted with a white WC and handbasin with grey tiling to the walls and floor. The remaining two bedrooms look onto the rear garden. The first of these is a double room with sash window and the second is a more spacious double room with a small period cast-iron fireplace.

Externally this lovely house has both front and rear gardens with a fully automated irrigation system. The front garden is planted with a range of flowering shrubs and a cherry tree. There is a quarry stone tiled pathway, which extends into the side return of the property providing excellent storage space for bicycles and a concealed area for dustbins.

At the rear of the house is a beautiful northwest facing landscaped garden extending to some 50 feet and benefitting from afternoon sunshine. The garden is accessed via both the side return of the house and the folding doors from the dining area. From the house you step onto a large decked area, which provides ample space for outdoor entertaining and leads onto a large lawned area, with inground trampoline. This in turn leads onto a paved patio area at the rear of the garden. The paved area is partly screened from the house by three silver birch trees and the current owners have installed raised beds for growing vegetables and fruit. This paved area is easily large enough to accommodate a large storage shed, playhouse or, potentially, a garden room.

This is a beautifully presented, spacious family home in an excellent location. Your early viewing is recommended.
