Ashmead Road, St John’s
Architecturally-treated four bed, two bath terrace of 1866 square feet, with a mature and professionally-landscaped garden extending over 80 feet.
Popular Ashmead Primary School is just over the road (3-11). Pleasingly, the house is being sold without a chain.
Find the cleverly, thoroughly and extensively renovated home in the exclusive St John’s Conservation Area, which adjoins Brookmill Conservation Area. We love the old-fashioned street lamps and general leafiness of the locale. Ashmead Road is of the pretty, tree-lined and residential variety, and is a one-way, so it’s quiet, too.
You’re a two minute walk from St John’s station (Zone 2) and a 10 minute walk from Elverson Road and Deptford Bridge DLR stations. Blackheath, Greenwich and Lewisham are all easily walkable.
A neat, walled front garden sets you back from the pavement. Open the traditional front door into a generous hall/lobby space, with stripped floors. The bay window is a welcome and highlighted feature, and there’s loads of space here for coats and the like.
Next up is a modern shower room (great for guest w.c.), which is also en suite to the first of your four bedrooms; this one is 12 feet by 11 feet, with garden views.
Up a few steps, to your left is the property’s main bathroom (a full one, with both bath and independent shower), with another bedroom onto garden views, with an additional skylight window too.
Down the stairs (open-tread to maximise light), find a vast main reception room running over 26 feet by the whole width of the house! Engineered oak floors, panel and glazing detail plus exposed steel feature here, and impress. There’s loads of space for day to day family life and for entertaining alike. Glazed French doors deliver you to the garden.
The large double-aspect kitchen/diner is set to the rear of the house. It extends over 23 feet, and boasts two runs of modern fitted wall and base units and integrated appliances. French doors open at the door of the room into a conservatory (double-glazed) which (very handily) doubles as a utility and speedy drying room.
The garden is a total joy - framed by mature trees (and other gardens), and providing a sturdy shed, both lawned and paved areas, and year-round colour and interest.
Up to the first floor for bedrooms three and four: a standard and a master double, of 12 feet by 11 feet, and 17 feet by 12 feet. Both rooms have custom-built closets to their respective alcoves.
A little bit of a secret this area, but not for long! An extremely well-connected patch. The stuff of driving lessons: quiet, Victorian streets, within striking distance of excellent transport links, shops, cafes and parks.
You’re about a mile from The Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site - comprising the historic town centre, the beautiful Royal Park and the related institutional buildings. The Royal Observatory is a must-go-to and the views from up here at the top of the park, looking onto The Thames and beyond, are really something.
Brookmill Park and Friendly Gardens are your closest green spaces.
As well as Ashmead Primary, three others are very close: St Stephen's C of E (0.2 miles), Lucas Vale (0.3 miles) and Myatt Garden (0.5 miles).
Deptford High Street and Market Yard area is a hip local spot. Here we like Salt, Marcella and Deli X among other delights.
Of an evening or weekend, The Brookmill Pub and Kitchen is a local favourite, and it’s just a six minute walk away on Cranbrook Road.
Brockley Market, on Lewisham Way, next to Lewisham College (a two minute walk) is a top way to spend your Saturday morning and some pennies! Deptford Cinema and Greenwich Picturehouse are all also a short walk away. And don’t miss your local contemporary art gallery: Goldsmiths CCA.
