Area Comments

Green, leafy, yet extremely close to the centre of London, Nunhead is a bag of surprises and as gentrification brings it up in the world is somewhere to seriously consider if you want a genuinely interesting place to live, plenty of green, and proximity to the centre of town.

Essentially an offshoot of Peckham, Nunhead has always been - although steadfastly working class in its roots - a little bit more genteel and desirable than the former. Of course, like much of London, it was slightly blighted by unsightly tower blocks, although many of these have been taken down

What's remarkable about Nunhead is how green and open it is. Mostly this is down to the beautiful Nunhead Cemetery, which since 1840 has been the neighbourhood's favourite green space. Huge (54 acres across), it's a very popular place to walk, and is a nature reserve.

Property in Nunhead has long since left behind the tower-block chic of the 1960s, although of course some vestiges of this remain. It has benefited from being involved in the Peckham Programme regeneration, which is improving links with Brockley, Honor Oak, New Cross and other neighbouring areas. Generally the longterm working class feel of Nunhead (always the more genteel working class though it is) has been added to by an influx of more middle class aspirations and in many ways, as transport and local infrastructure, as well as local restaurants and bars improve, it's beginning to resemble more East Dulwich than Peckham, of which it is technically part.

There are excellent houses in Nunhead, particularly in the region of the cemetery. These blend the Victorian and Edwardian nicely, chiefly in terraces, some of which are subdivided providing excellent homes for professionals and couples, but many of which are found in their original guise.

Nunhead has great and improving services, and is spectacularly green for a place within 4 miles of Charing Cross. It has a Dulwich-like feel yet a Peckham-like energy, and is a great compromise for any first time buyers and those looking for a substantial property that's still affordable.
