Kimberley Avenue sits right in the heart of on-trend Nunhead Village, and runs either side of Nunhead Lane.
You're very handy for Queens Rd Peckham (Overground Line) and Nunhead Stations - trains direct to Victoria & Kings Cross (both Zone 2), and the plethora of buses along Queens Rd.
Now, head North down the Avenue, along a terrace of pretty two storey Victorian cottages, and on the right is my client's home, and be prepared for much loveliness!
We enter via the storm porch, into the lounge. Cleverly opened up to provide over 31 sqm of bright, neutral living and dining space. Double glazing keeps things quiet and toasty, and there's engineered oak flooring throughout. French doors lead to a very sunny side return conservatory, and there's under stairs storage.
From here we access the kitchen, galley style with contrasting charcoal base and white wall units, integrated cooking appliances and dishwasher, and space for a full height fridge freezer and washing machine.
There's also access to the conservatory and garden here too.
Next up is the chic and sumptuous bathroom, featuring a free standing double ended bath and walk in shower enclosure, subtle lighting, smart modern sanitary ware, it's the perfect sanctuary for a long soak.
Continuing the kitchen theme, charcoal paintwork is complemented by metro style crisp, white tiling.
Scoot up to first floor level and we have the main bedroom at the front. Lovely and light courtesy of the twin windows (double glazed). There's a built in wardrobe and decor is neutral.
Behind is bedroom two, a pleasant double overlooking the rear again with a very neutral, bright theme. A great kids room!
Bedroom three is in the rear addition, currently used as a work space but equally another good kids/guest bedroom. From here we overlook the rear garden, and it has a very tranquil, stylish feel.
Up above, the loft is very well insulated, has velux windows and strip lighting and has been boarded out. Great storage but with potential.....
The rear garden stretches back some 40' or so and is surrounded by greenery and is very private. It's a lovely family space that works really well for entertaining or relaxing, with a patio and well established lawn.
The decked area is fabulous for a Sunday morning coffee, croissant and the sports section or weekend magazine.
Nunhead Lane is a vibrant high st with a fabulous array of traditional and boutique shops and eateries, along with its 'village green', playground and community centre.
Long standing family businesses such as Ayre's bakery and Soper’s Fish Mongers sit alongside newcomers like the big Co-Op, Mother Superior (great wine & cheese selection), El Vermut, the highly rated 28 Day Well Hung (steaks, burgers, cocktails), and Four Hundred Rabbits (pizza). The London Beer Shop is my particular fave - never the same beer twice! The BYO (Bring Your Own) food and household stores are gems too, and their 'no plastic waste' mantra puts the big supermarkets to shame.
Pub-wise, The Old Nun’s Head is great, as is The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby and Skehans. Proper foodies should try Peckham Bazaar.
Mamma Dough and Blackbird Bakery are two hot-spots by QRP Station. Peckham's also on the doorstep: Peckham Plex Cinema (fiver-films-forever), Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building, rooftop bars, traditional street market and high st familiars.
Foodies couldn't be better catered for: The Begging Bowl, Artusi and Ganapati in Bellenden will delight, and stroll up to the Rye for tons more choice ranging from Pizza (Voodo Ray) to Taiwanese/Vietnamese (Mr Bao, Banh Banh) and most things in between.
As for green space, you are very spoilt for choice: Nunhead Green is your local strip, plus Peckham Rye, with recently upgraded kids activity space, the two Telegraph Hill parks with amazing views and excellent Saturday market, and of course the decayed grandeur of Victorian Nunhead Cemetry. Neither Blackheath or Royal Greenwich Park are difficult to get to either, likewise Dulwich Park.
