Arica Road, Brockley
Chain-free extended Victorian terrace just three minutes from Brockley Station, with three bedrooms, both bath and shower rooms, and a neat south-east facing garden.
The property measures in at well over 1300 square feet, and is delivered over three floors.
The street is a quiet residential one in a strong spot - with handy local shops, cafes and a great station close by. You’re also really close to John Stainer Community Primary School.
A walled front garden sets the house back from the pavement. In your (porched) front door and your front formal reception is set to your right. This is over 13 feet by over 10 feet, with an attractive hue to the walls and a traditional feature fireplace with granite hearth. Further welcome treats include shutters to twin sash windows, coving detail, and stripped boards underfoot. If you preferred you could open this up to the second reception - as many neighbours have done.
Next door is a second flexible reception room of over 12 feet by over 10 feet (more stripped boards here). On through for the kitchen/dining room, which runs 16 feet. A run of gloss-white units impress, teamed with stainless steel handlesand including an integrated dishwasher. Large profile tiles are set to the floor. Double-glazed French doors open out to the sunny and low-maintenance garden. The ground floor is completed with a handy downstairs utility/downstairs w.c.
Up to the first floor and you’ve got the property’s (bright, windowed) main bathroom straight ahead. This has a modern white suite and an independent shower as well.
Next up is a double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 8 feet, with double-glazed window to verdant views. The original master bedroom is set to the front of the house - it’s over 14 feet by over 13 feet, with three sash windows and a feature fireplace.
The top floor hosts a large double bedroom in the former loft space (with loads of built-in storage plus access to generous eaves storage too), and a lobby/dressing area which leads onto a modern shower room.
Kids or thinking of? The local primary schools are all good ones: John Stainer, Myatt Garden and Haberdashers' Hatcham Free School (the latter with secondary provision).
Very handily, you are a short walk from Brockley Station: Fare Zone 2 and on the London Overground network. The area by the station has been recently pedestrianised and the cafes here pleasingly spill into the street, giving it a warm European feel.
Across the road, find a handy Sainsbury’s, a yoga studio, and Good As Gold coffee shop. Also close is Cooper’s Bakehouse (in Dragonfly Place).
Central Brockley is a short stroll for cafes, restaurants and bars (which are independent in the main), and the wonderful &osteo fitness studio and therapy rooms. We like Tai, Parlez, Brickfields, Brockley Brewery and Browns of Brockley as just some examples. There’s a new wine and small plates place coming too - on Harefield Road.
Nunhead with its high street and village vibes is also close. Here we rate BAR D4100, Kudu Grill, Ayres bakery, Mother Superior and El Vermut bottle shops (with tables too), FC Soper wet fish shop and The Old Nun’s Head.
We’re big fans of New Cross’s centre as well, with its pretty, historical buildings, and growing number of pubs and eateries - including The Rosemary (organic Hungarian fayre), The Rose Inn, The Earl of Derby, The Amersham Arms and Meze Mangal. Thanks largely to Goldsmiths University, New Cross attracts a cool crowd and even has its own contemporary art gallery: Goldsmiths CCA.
Deptford High Street and Broadway are also local - for an array of bars and restaurants in Deptford Market Yard and on the high street itself. And hip Peckham is also easily-reached for more options - some of our favourite SE15 spots are Peckham Bazaar, Levan, Forza Wine, The Begging Bowl, Ganapati, Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building.
For park-life... you've got Telegraph Hill's pretty Victorian ones (with views) close by. Telegraph Hill Upper Park is very popular on NYE for the panoramic views of London and the fireworks. Hilly Fields and Ladywell Fields and Nunhead Cemetery are also close. And Greenwich Park and Blackheath Common are but a short bus ride/cycle/drive.
