Loft Style Mews House - Farriers Mews, London, SE15
Guide Price £1,075,000
Located in fast emerging Nunhead, a former Farriers that has been converted into an interesting loft style mews house.
Arranged over 1,280 sqft, and three floors, there are three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a huge living area, a slick kitchen and downstairs cloakroom. There is ample and well-considered storage. Features include masses of glazing, neutral decor, and fantastic triple-height detail, plus galleried view from the mezzanine floor – exploiting the natural light, and creating an atmosphere of warehouse loft living.
Access the house via the huge entrance hall, large double doors open from the hall into the main living space. Glazed double doors also open into (or out of) the huge reception. Around the corner you’ll find the good sized modern fitted kitchen. Up to the first floor for the first bedroom – it’s a hefty mezzanine with built-in cupboard and private bathroom. Up the stairs again for two further double bedrooms; both with skylight windows to boost the natural light. A neat bathroom (again with a clever skylight window) and two storage cupboards complete the floor.
Nunhead station (zone 2) has London Victoria trains and Thameslink trains too (Farringdon, Blackfriars). Or you can walk about half a mile to Queen’s Road Peckham station (also zone 2) for London Overground services. Canary Wharf is easy via Canada Water, also destinations such as Clapham Junction or Shoreditch High Street.
Nunhead itself has been a bit of ‘best kept secret’ with its central green, playground and community centre (by AOC architects), and excellent, established ‘staples’ including Ayre’s bakery and Soper’s wet-fish shop. New and popular arrivals include Material, The Habit, The Beer Shop, Babette, and Four Hundred rabbits (posh pizza). The Old Nun’s Head is a terrific local and often has live music, guest ales etc. The Earl of Derby at The Telegraph is also nice, and a little tucked away. This and its proximity to Peckham Rye have seen Nunhead become a desirable investment location for those looking for value in area sandwiched by expensive postcodes.
Farriers Mews was developed into a private gated mews in 2000 and comes with secured parking and communal garden area.
