Spacious, 1084 sq.ft, bright, three double bedroom split level flat with own roof terrace.
This beautifully presented three double bedroom duplex flat is to be found on the upper floors of a period property on Ivydale Road in Nunhead. It is within easy striking distance of both the centre of Nunhead, with its almshouses, pubs and independent shops gathered around Nunhead Green and the open spaces of Peckham Rye. Within a few minutes walk you can be enjoying a drink in either of the Waverley Arms or Ivy House pubs. The shops, bars and restaurants of East Dulwich and Peckham are also just a short bus ride away. Both Turnham and Ivydale primary schools are also within easy walking distance of the property and the open spaces of One Tree Hill and Nunhead Cemetery are also close by.
The property is within 15 minutes walk of any of Nunhead, Honor Oak Park and Crofton Park railway stations, which provide direct services into central London and, in the case of Honor Oak Park, London Overground services which provide connections to the Jubilee line tubeservices to London Bridge and Canary Wharf. Peckham Rye station is also just a short bus ride away on a number of bus services that stop within less than 100 metres of the property.
You approach the property through the paved front garden and enter into the communal hallway which is tiled to half height and has period plasterwork to the ceiling. The door to the apartment is directly in front of you. Upon entering the apartment, you take the stairs to the first half landing.
From this half landing, a flight of four stairs leads up to the rear landing where you will find the family bathroom and the first of the bedrooms. The family bathroom is nicely fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising claw footed bath with over bath shower with rainfall showerhead, low-level WC and contemporary handbasin with built-in vanity unit. From the bathroom there is access to an area of loft storage space.
Adjacent to the bathroom is the first of the bedrooms. This is a spacious double room with an attractive period cast-iron fireplace with tiled inserts. From this lovely bright room a casement window looks out to the rear onto surrounding gardens.
Returning to the stairwell, you take a flight of four stairs up to the main first floor level. Here you will find the living space. This beautiful space is zoned into a generously sized kitchen dining area to the front of the property and a sitting room to the rear.
The kitchen dining area has solid wood flooring and both a casement window and wide bay looking out onto Ivydale Road. It is, therefore, a very bright space. The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern panelled kitchen units with a wood block worksurface into which is fitted a deep butler’s sink. There is an integrated oven, hob and dishwasher with space for other freestanding appliances. The remainder of the front living area is used by the current owners as a dining room, which comfortably accommodates an eight-person dining table and chairs.
This part of the room also benefits from a pretty, painted period fireplace surround and there is fitted shelving to both chimneybreast recesses. To the rear at first floor level is the sitting room. Again, this is a bright space with a large casement window looking out to the rear of the property. There is fitted shelving to one of the chimneybreast recesses in this area.
Returning to the hallway, you take a further flight of stairs to the second floor where the current owners have created a loft extension. On a half landing you will find the door to the second bedroom. This, again, is a large double room, which the current owners tend to use, mostly, as a home office. It could, alternatively, be used as a further reception room. From this room double doors lead out on to an attractive roof terrace, which provides good views of the surrounding neighbourhood and is the perfect spot for a drink or dinner during the warmer months.
At the very top of the house is the main bedroom suite. This comprises a large double room and adjacent bathroom. The double bedroom has a Velux roof window to the front and full height casement window to the rear. This generous space also benefits from some eaves storage. Adjacent to the main bedroom is a second bathroom. This is very slickly fitted with a white three-piece suite, comprising a freestanding bath, low-level WC, and contemporary handbasin with built-in vanity unit. There is also an attractive chrome, period style radiator and heated towel rail. From this bathroom, a Velux roof window looks out to the front of the property.
This is a really spacious apartment that has been thoughtfully extended by the current owners and finished to a very high standard. It provides large amounts of adaptable space and comes with a share of the freehold. Your early viewing is recommended.
