Gellatly Rd, gateway to the Telegraph Hill Conservation Area, is lined with uniformed two storey period terraces, and my client's property is a stand-out stunner. The crisp and clean exterior can but hint at what awaits inside.
Let's go in. The entrance hall welcomes you and immediately sets the tone, with it's beautiful tiled flooring and nod to it's heritage with period light switches and decor. Coat and shoes off, and it's into the reception rooms. Up to you how you use them, either as one big through lounge or use the dividing doors to give the grown up's some space while the kids watch telly next door. Lots of period features in here including some exquisite cornicing and ceiling roses, fireplaces and wooden flooring, all complimented by the double glazed bay sash windows, modern built in shelving and french doors to a private terrace.
Back into the hallway and we skip down into the nerve centre of the house - approx. 30 sqm of dining, entertaining and kitchen space - and what a space it is: The dining area easily accommodates an 8 seater table plus a 2 seater sofa, and has bay windows to the side for loads of light and dancing space when the sun goes down! The Kitchen has acres of cupboard space and is fully fitted. In here's where you find bathroom two - a fully functional wet room.
Now we head upwards, via the stylish traditional staircase, to the first floor landing, where a cleverly installed velux floods us with natural light. To the front is the master bedroom, calm and tranquil, again double glazed, and lots of space. Behind this is bedroom 2, a good double presently the home office. At the rear is bedroom three, light and bright and again a decent double. Next up is the family bathroom - and what a joy to behold: Speedy step in shower for the mornings, and a sumptuous free standing roll top bath for an evening soak (with a glass of something chilled perhaps?). The washbasin is cleverly mounted to a wash stand and has wall mounted mixers - very smart.
Now then - the rear garden. The patio is perfect for soaking up the sun, and the canopy of greenery for those shade lovers includes some prolific fig trees. Journey on down and you'll fined a veg plot, summerhouse and workshop - everything you could want in one great space.
Gellatly Rd lies at the North West corner of Telegraph Hill, and is SO well connected for transport with Nunhead, Queens Rd and New Cross Gate stations, putting London Bridge, Victoria, The Ginger Line and Jubilee connections all within easy reach.
Families have a choice of local school options, with Edmund Waller and Hollydale Primaries and Aske's Secondary & Free school all nearby.
Nunhead Lane is just around the corner, and is fast becoming the trendy local shopping area, with an array of independent and artisan shops including an amazing fishmonger, bakers, butchers, craft beer shop and cafes - very 'Villagey'. There's also a recently redeveloped kids play area on Nunhead Green.
Telegraph Hill is home to the two brilliant parks, with fabulous cityscape views, tennis courts and picnic area in the top park, and the skate park, toddlers play area, ponds etc in the lower. There's also the Hill Station Community Cafe, which plays host to lots of pop up events and restaurants.
