What the owners say

We have lived in Harlescott Road for 23 years, initially we rented the house from a family friend, then bought it as we loved the area so much. 

These Victorian houses are amazing as they are so versatile and really do grow with your family!  We have gone from a newly married couple to a family of 4 and have easily accommodated 10 for Christmas in recent years!

We were lucky to be able to fully renovate the property between 2013-2017, at which point we had already lived in the house for 16 years. This was brilliant because we understood exactly what we needed to do to make it work for us as a family (double glazing, lots of storage, a separate bathroom for the children, a downstairs loo and two areas we could use to watch TV / play Xbox / have friends around were all high on the list)!  We wanted to make it ‘teenager proof’!!

Before we did anything, because we had lived in the area for so long we were able to visit several friends’ houses that had been converted which helped us to work out exactly what we wanted, the pros and cons of different layouts etc. We also used tried and tested builders who came from personal recommendations.  The work was all done for us, with the intention being it would be our forever home so we wanted it done right.

Although only 6 miles from Central London, Nunhead definitely has a village feel to it with a strong sense of community. The shops in Nunhead Lane are great and it's a pleasant walk over the park to East Dulwich.

Both our children have gone to Ivydale School and really enjoyed it. They have loads of local friends and they all enjoy and make full use of our local park.  

One of the best things about this part of Nunhead is that people don’t drive through here unless they need to– we are ‘cut off’ from major traffic routes by the train line, the beautiful, 52 acre Victorian cemetery (which feels like walking in a nature reserve / woodland), and by 64 acres of Peckham Rye Park – that’s over 100 acres of greenspace right on our doorstep!  I believe this also contributes to better air quality compared to other parts of South London.  To have all of that, yet be only 6 miles from Central London / Zone 2 travel zone with access to all the museums, theatres and restaurants really is remarkable.
