Barlborough Street, New Cross
Offers over £695,000.
Chain-free three bed bay-fronted Victorian end of terrace house and garage in the desirable Hatcham Conservation Area, near Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham Temple Grove Primary School (Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’).
Relevant permissions obtained; there’s obvious, rarely-available potential here to extend into the garage space. Alternatively you could create a second garden area.
The house is in good order and is packed with smart touches which include recessed lighting and old school style radiators.
Parking is unrestricted on the street. Your nearest stations (walk 10-12 minutes) are New Cross Gate and Queen's Road Peckham. Both are Zone 2 and on the London Overground network. Or take a short bus ride to Elephant & Castle (with Zone 1 tube) and beyond. Freehold.
On entry, to the left of the hall space is a large reception room of 12 feet by 12 feet. Original double doors open from here to the eat-in kitchen, which has hand-built wooden wall and base cupboards with wooden counters. From this room, part-glazed French doors open to the garden which has a large, low-maintenance decked area.
Next to the kitchen is a welcome shower and utility room (which is also home to the boiler). An under-stairs cupboard is useful for shoes, coats and cleaning bits.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is 12 feet by 10 feet, with street views. A second double sits to the rear of the house with garden views (again it’s 12 feet by 10 feet). A third bedroom of 9 feet by 6 feet faces front, and the main bathroom is set of the landing space to the rear of the house - with classy white sanitary ware and white walls.
This is a little-known, well-connected locale. A brief history of the area: From 1614, the land was owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers. When the manor house, 'Hatcham Park’, was demolished circa 1840, terraced homes were permitted to be built to strict specifications. Reputedly saved from demolition in the seventies, Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990.
New Cross has a good selection of pubs and eateries; these include The Five Bells, The Rose Inn (fabulous pizza menu plus top roasts on Sundays), The New Cross House and The Amersham Arms.
On the weekend, Deptford, Greenwich (both have great markets) and Peckham Rye are all close. Surrey Docks Farm is well worth your spare time, too
Grab your fresh loaf from Blackbird Bakery by QPR station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, do check out Soper’s wet fish shop. For the regular Big Shop, the large Sainsbury's set behind New Cross Gate Station will serve you well. Or it's a short drive to big Tesco stores on the Old Kent Road or Surrey Quays, or Asda or Aldi.
Your most local primary schools are Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham Temple Grove (a feeder school for the highly-regarded local HA secondary school), Kender, and Edmund Waller. All have good nurseries too, from 3 years of age.
The local park is Eckington Gardens with playground and active friends group, or nip up the hill to the Telegraph Hill Parks. Peckham Rye Park, Burgess, Ruskin and Greenwich Parks are a short drive or bus ride away for larger green spaces.
