A chain free, 3 bedroom house with bags of potential and an unbeatable location.
If you are looking for a family home on which to put your own stamp and at the very heart of things in East Dulwich, this could be the property for you. This three bedroom house is to be found on Nutfield Road, a road of pretty, terraced, early Victorian flat fronted properties dating from 1864. This particular property, which is being sold chain free, has until recently been tenanted and is in need of some cosmetic updating. The house offers two reception rooms and three double bedrooms and also provides scope (STPP) for further increasing its footprint with a side return extension.
Nutfield Road runs parallel to Lordship Lane between North Cross and Frogley Roads. So, on your doorstep, you have the pick of the many bars and restaurants on this very foodie oriented stretch of southeast London high street. You are also excellently placed to pick up some fresh produce from the weekly North Cross Road market or from the local independent butchers, fishmongers or greengrocers for which this area is becoming increasingly known.
The property is within a short walk of both Goose Green and Harris Academy state primary schools and the Charter secondary school. It is also within easy reach of James Allen’s Prep school, Alleyn’s School and the other independent schools for which Dulwich is renowned. So, whatever your education needs, this house fits the bill.
East Dulwich railway station (which provides direct services into London Bridge (c.13 mins)) is less than a 10 minute walk from the property and both Denmark Hill and Peckham Rye railway stations are a short bus ride away. At these stations you will find direct trains to Victoria and King’s Cross stations and access to the London Overground services providing connections to the Jubilee line tube services to Canary Wharf. Frequent bus services are also available on Lordship Lane providing direct routes to destinations including Brixton, Victoria, Waterloo and The City.
You approach the property through the small front garden and enter into the hallway with its wooden floors, which extend into both reception rooms. Immediately to your right is the first of the reception rooms. This is a spacious room with a working period fireplace with wooden surround. From this room large sash windows look out onto Nutfield Road.
Returning to the hallway you next pass the second reception room. Again this is a pleasant and bright room with another period cast-iron fireplace. A sash window looks out from this room onto the side return of the property and the garden beyond.
Back in the hallway, and heading towards the rear of the property, you pass two useful understair cupboards before entering the kitchen. The kitchen, which is fitted with a range of wooden units with a white worksurface, has an integrated oven and hob and space for other freestanding appliances. From the kitchen a sash window looks out onto, and a half glazed door leads out onto, the rear garden.
At the back of the property at ground floor level is the bathroom, which is accessed via a door from the kitchen. The bathroom is currently simply fitted with a white three-piece suite comprising bath with over bath shower, WC and hand basin. A casement window looks out from the bathroom onto the rear garden.
Returning to the hallway the staircase with open wooden balustrade leads to the first floor. On a half landing you will find the first of the bedrooms. This is a pretty double room with a period cast-iron fireplace and sash window looking down onto the rear garden.
Continuing up to the first floor proper, you will find the remaining two bedrooms. The first, on your left, is a bright and spacious double room with built-in shelving and storage to both chimneybreast recesses and a large sash window looking down onto the garden.
At the front to the property at first floor level is the master bedroom. This is a generously sized double room with another tiled, period fireplace and some built-in storage to one of the chimneybreast recesses. From the master bedroom two sash windows look down onto Nutfield Road making this a lovely, bright space.
Externally the property benefits from both a front and rear garden. The rear garden, which includes a generous side return, is mostly paved with a large central bed, which was previously laid to lawn, surrounded by further beds planted with a range of mature shrubs and perennials. At the far end of the garden is a further paved area, which provides the perfect spot for outside dining or entertaining during the warmer months.
This is a great family home in an enviable central East Dulwich location. It is double glazed throughout, has a range of period details, offers scope for updating and extending and is being sold chain free. Your early viewing is recommended.
