This updated house, with a traditional Victorian exterior and contemporary interior, is on a quiet street in Southeast London’s Nunhead Green Conservation Area, close to a small village area with a new community center, fish store, greengrocer, deli and pubs. The London skyline is visible from the parklike Nunhead Cemetery. Neighboring Peckham Rye has an expansive park and common area with a Japanese garden, sports facilities, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops.

From the Peckham Rye station, rail service takes ten minutes to London Bridge and 15 minutes to Victoria.

Indoors: Off the front hall, built-in bookshelves in the living room bracket a fireplace, new sash windows are shuttered, and the floorboards are dark-stained wood.

The kitchen is open to a skylit dining extension with floor-to-ceiling windows. Along one wall, custom-fronted cabinets — white with brass handles on the bottom — are topped with a white Silestone quartz counter and surround a gas stove. A built-in white sink with a high arc brass faucet and the refrigerator are at the far end. The backsplash is Moroccan tile. A light blue center island conceals storage and functions as a breakfast bar with two bar stools. Custom wood bookshelves, cupboards, and built-in seating extend across the opposite wall. The engineered oak floor is heated.

Wool carpeting covers the staircase and second floor. The primary bedroom, in front, and second bedroom, in back, both have built-in wardrobes and doors with transom windows. Down two steps, a shared bathroom has blue hexagon-shaped floor tiles, a combined tub and shower, a pedestal sink, white subway wall tiles and a sloped ceiling with a skylight.

Outdoor space: Glass doors open from the dining area to a brick patio with a built-in bench. In the fenced rear garden, roses climb one wall. A wisteria-draped trellis shades a table and chairs. Young plum, pear, and maple trees flank a small lawn.
