Arbuthnot Road, New Cross

Offers in excess of £1,100,000.

Delightful three double bedroom bay-fronted Victorian terrace, with tasteful ground floor extension onto the well-established garden (which extends over 65 feet). 

The location is a leafy residential street within New Cross’s Telegraph Hill Conservation Area, close to lovely public green spaces and good schools. 

You’re on the SE15 border; close to Nunhead’s cute high street and Zone 2 station (walk eight minutes). And Queens Road Peckham Station is an 11 minute walk. 

Back to the house: it is a late C19th one - with high ceilings and lots of original period detailing.

The house is fronted by a low-maintenance paved front garden. From the welcoming hall, your two formal receptions rest to your right, with wooden floors flowing through. The rooms are over 13 feet by over 12 feet, and over 11 feet by over 10 feet, and both have beautiful marble fireplaces. Your bay window (with lovely box work) has custom-made shutters to the lower panes. 

Access the main back room from the second reception, or from the foot of the hall (where you will find a downstairs w.c. and access to the handy cellar as well). It is a large and light kitchen/dining room of over 20 feet by over 15 feet. There are four Velux windows and wall-spanning timber-framed folding doors as well. 

Up the stairs and from the half-landing you’ll find a modern windowed bathroom (with traditional sanitary-ware including a roll-top bath, and gorgeous ceramic wall tiles), and a double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 10 feet. 

From the main landing you’ve got another double bedroom to your left (of over 11 feet by over 10 feet), and the master bedroom - which rests across the front of the house. It is over 16 feet by over 11 feet, with two windows to pretty street views. All of your bedrooms have stripped boards to the floor. Finally, find a neat linen cupboard on the landing, and access to the loft (which is currently used for storage). 

What a hot spot! Nunhead Station and Nunhead’s popular independent high street are both but a short walk. Queens Road Peckham Station is an 11 minute one - and gives you the extra option of Overground services. And you can take your pick of great day and night bus routes on nearby Queens Road and Nunhead Lane.

The village-like feel of Nunhead Green is just a short stroll away. Nunhead has a butcher, fishmonger, bakery and fancy bottle shops, as well as a pubs, cafes, restaurants and a Co-Op. We like Goodcup (and Goodnights), El Vermut, BARD4100 and Kudu Grill in Nunhead, and Beer Rebellion, Peckham Cellars, Blackbird Bakery and Kudu by Queens Road Peckham Station.

The centres of Peckham, New Cross, Brockley and East Dulwich are also very close for more options. 

Telegraph Hill is rather a dreamy community to call home with its own cafe/community hub by the parks (The Hill Station) and pizza place. Telegraph Hill’s Victorian Parks are ace, and there’s a weekly Saturday market held in the Lower Park, or/and you can nip down to Brockley Market (held on Saturdays in the Lewisham College Car Park). 

Other local green spots include Peckham Rye Park and Common, and Nunhead Cemetery.

Local nurseries and schools are really strong; these include Haberdashers' (covering 3-18) and Edmund Waller Primary (3-11). Both are but a short walk away.
