Avonley Road, New Cross

Larger than average one bedroom first floor flat within a handsome hospital conversion (opened in 1877, and converted in the early nineteen nineties). Parking is available on-site for residents.

The flat measures in at 614 square feet and enjoys a good layout including a notably big reception room. 

Your local stations are New Cross Gate and Queens Road Peckham. Both are a 12 minute walk, Zone 2, and on the Overground network.

Bus travel is easy from here too (walk four minutes to your most local stop, on Old Kent Road). 

Take stairs up one floor to your own front door. You open into a square lobby/hall space. The property’s internal bathroom is directly ahead - contemporary fittings and sanitary ware feature here (including an over-bath shower), along with metro-tiling and underfloor heating. 

To your immediate right is your reception room - of over 18 feet by over 12 feet. There’s plenty of space to zone both eating and seating areas comfortably. 

A second hall area (left of the first) hosts handy built-in cupboards. Then you have your neat independent (windowed) kitchen, in U-shape, with attractive navy fitted base units and open-shelving. 

Finally, find your double bedroom (of over 12 feet by over 9 feet), complete with a generous walk-in wardrobe: a rare and very welcome find in a period conversion! 

This is a quiet tucked-away spot yet you are really well-connected. It’s an easy and flat stroll to either QRP or New Cross Gate stations. There are also plenty of day and night bus routes within a short walk of the house; to Elephant & Castle and beyond, or to Peckham, Deptford, Greenwich, Brockley and Lewisham.

Local parks include Telegraph Hill (Upper and Lower, with Saturday Farmers’ Market, or hop on a bus down to Brockley Market) and Fordham Parks. There are also two little neighbourhood parks: Eckington Gardens and Bridgehouse Meadows. Besson Street Community Garden is a delightful local asset as well. You can also walk or cycle to Southwark Park; The Angel pub (just beyond the far side of the park) has unbeatable riverside views. 

Local eateries, drinkeries and cafes of note include Corner (cafe), The Old Library (bar), The Rosemary (Hungarian, with live music nights), The Rose Inn and The Earl of Derby. 

Nip down to neighbouring SE15 for more - including Kudu’s outlets, Peckham Bazaar, Ganapati, Artusi, Levan, Peckham Levels, Miss Tapas, Miss Tapas and Il Giardino. 

Cool Deptford has a top gastronomic and bar offering too. We rate Deli X, Watergate (small plates, cocktails, wine), Marcella, Salt (pizza, craft beer) and The Dog & Bell pub to name a few. Deptford also has a popular theatre: The Albany, and a modern leisure centre with lane pool, next door to the library.

New Cross is home to Goldsmiths University and a cool contemporary art gallery: Goldsmiths CCA.

Grab your fresh loaves from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, check out such delights as Soper’s (wet fish shop), El Vermut and Mother Superior (fancy bottle shops with tables too), Goodcup (coffee shop) and Bar D4100 (bar and pizza).
