Cliff Terrace, St John’s
Offers in excess of £550,000.
A rare find of a Victorian conversion flat, with a Freehold-share, pots of charm, and a private and rather magical well-established rear garden - which extends over 60 feet and faces south.
The property takes the ground floor of a large and handsome semi-detached house within St John's Conservation Area, at the end of a sleepy and leafy no-through street near St John’s Station and St John’s Church.
At the moment the property is an oversized one double bedroom flat (of 639 square feet). It has obvious potential to be re-jigged and extended once-in, should you want to get a second bedroom sorted, or fancy an extended kitchen-living space with lovely views over the garden in what could become a forever home.
You’re just a few minutes from both St Johns Station and Brockley Market (a super foodie one which runs on Saturdays 10am-2pm).
A pretty front garden is a pleasing welcome. In the shared hall and you’ll note the classy high ceilings. Your own front door is set to the right of the hall. The generous reception room - over 15 feet by over 14 feet - is at the front of the building. Wooden floors, a big bay window (sashes here) and open fireplace are all welcome features.
The wooden-floored kitchen/dining room is next up. South-facing French doors open from here to the delightful large and sunny garden (a garden studio/office would work great out here). We’ll let the pictures of the garden do the talking…
Off the hall you also have your bedroom - another good-sized room (over 14 feet by 10 feet), with wooden floors again, and a sash window to garden vistas. You also have generous built-in closets.
Beyond the bedroom is the windowed bathroom which has a white suite, ceramic wall tiling, and traditional-style fittings plus a handy linen cupboard.
Stations? St Johns is your closest as we’ve mentioned, where the journey-time to London Bridge is just 8 minutes. New Cross, Brockley and Lewisham stations, plus Deptford Bridge DLR Station are all within a 15 minute one. You’re well-placed for buses as well.
Most locally, Brockley Market is a great spot on Saturdays. The Talbot pub (recently refurbished) is a strong local, as is The Brookmill. And do check out Chicha - serving vibrant Peruvian street food, and Le Terre 5 - offering fresh homemade pasta and sauces.
Greenwich is close for the UNESCO World Heritage Site, amazing views from the park, river boat services, Picturehouse cinema, winter ice rink, and Waitrose supermarket.
The Deptford High Street area including Deptford Market Yard is searingly-cool with bars, night spots, cafes, restaurants and breweries. We particularly rate Marcella, SALT, Badger Badger and Villages.
Central New Cross is close, with its contemporary art gallery within the Goldsmiths campus, plus a great variety of pubs. We like The Amersham Arms there opposite NX Station. Meze Mangal (further down Lewisham Way) serves up good value Turkish grub.
Central Lewisham’s handy (a 15 or so minute walk) for mall shopping and markets, plus Sparrow restaurant.
Brockley has nice neighbourhood restaurants - such as Tai and Parlez, and a cool cocktail place: Brickfields.
Walking the dog? We like Hilly Fields, or walk or bus to Greenwich Royal Park (30 minutes by foot).
Local schools are good and include Ashmead Primary.
