London Homes with Wildlife Corridors


Where can you find a home in London which is large enough for the family, has a private garden and a ‘green’ passage at the back of the property which creates a wildlife corridor? Family Mosaic’s latest development in Ivydale Road, SE15, ticks all these boxes.

Set in a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood of south east London, yet close to the green open spaces of Nunhead and Peckham, the development comprises a collection of three- storey, traditional family homes with private gardens.

At the back of the properties runs a wildlife corridor, which is a strip of land that has been left uncultivated to encourage wildlife and plants to flourish. At Ivydale Road the wildlife corridor will provide a habitat for local flora and fauna and attract insects to pollinate the plants and provide food for the birds.

Offering a generous 1669 sq ft of living space, these four bedroom homes have a wealth of features for family living. On the ground floor there is a large living room at the front of the property, a kitchen/dining room with doors that open up onto the rear garden, providing an excellent space for entertaining and a cloakroom.

The first floor offers flexible accommodation with three good sized bedrooms, a family bathroom and a study, which could double as an office for home working or a TV room. But it’s the second floor that is the ‘piece de resistance’ with its master suite occupying the whole of this floor, with a double bedroom, fitted wardrobes and en-suite.

The homes are finished to an excellent specification with handle-less kitchen units by Paula Rosa in grey beige, along with complementing resin worktops and upstands in pearl quartz. The range of appliances includes an AEG stainless steel electric double oven, microwave, gas hob and cooker hood, as well as ‘A’ rated Electrolux fridge/freezer, dishwasher and AEGwasher/dryer. The floor is covered with ceramic floor tiles.

The bathrooms and en-suites are fitted with stylish white sanitary ware with chrome fittings, including a thermostatic mixer over the bath, thermostatic shower in the en-suite and a heated ladder towel rail.

The development is ideal for commuters, located on the west side of Ivydale Road, just a quarter of a mile from Nunhead railway station, from where journeys to London Victoria take about 15 minutes and Lewisham about 8 minutes, which connects with the Docklands Light Railway. Brockley station is less than a mile away and the nearest underground stations are Oval and Elephant & Castle, both on the Northern Line. Local bus services are good, with the P12 bus route passing down Ivydale Road,

This is an excellent location for families with Ivydale Primary School just along the road and several local shops. Cosmopolitan Peckham is just over a mile away with its shops, cafés, bars, restaurants, library, arts centre and cinema, as well as Peckham Pulse Healthy Living Centre which includes a swimming pool, exercise studio and gym.

There are plenty of parks and green open spaces nearby including Peckham Rye Park and Common, which provides a pleasant refuge for the local community. With its ornamental gardens, flowing streams, woodland and lake, the park is an ideal location to take a gentle stroll and then enjoy refreshments in the Cafe on the Rye. For the more active there are football pitches, a skate park, an outdoor gym and a bowling green.Priced at £545,000, these homes offer excellent value for a new build family home in London.
