Dragonfly Place, Brockley
Architect-designed one double bedroom apartment of 565 square feet, in a quiet yet well-connected location just four minutes from Brockley Station (Fare Zone 2, and on the London Overground network). Long leasehold - 117 years remaining.
The flat’s a first floor one, within the tucked-away residential/high-end commercial community that is Dragonfly Place, really near Brockley Cross.
It’s possible to rent a parking space within the development and there are four visitor bays. And multiple bike sheds offer free cycle storage.
The property is exceedingly energy-efficient; boasting triple-glazing, an air-filtering system, and great insulation. Stay cool when it’s hot and cosy when it’s cold.
The front door has deck-style access which doubles as a south-facing communal balcony: perfect for a little bistro table and chairs. In your own front door and you open into a generous hall space with your bedroom set to your right. This is over 13 feet by over 8 feet.
In the hall you’ve got three good built-in cupboards - great for coats, shoes and stuff, linen, towels and cleaning paraphernalia.
The next room is a smart internal bathroom; complete with a modern white suite, over bath shower, heated towel rail, large profile tiles and mirrored cabinets.
At the end of the hall is the large open-plan main room incorporating kitchen, dining and living spaces. It has pleasing oversized windows, and is over 19 feet by nearly 14 feet. The fitted kitchen is a contemporary one with built-in appliances - these are included in the sale.
Living within this creative community you can benefit from such delights as fresh loaf deliveries from Cooper’s Bakehouse, and in the warm months, businesses and residents enjoy friendly barbies on the communal green (find this by the second entrance).
Central Brockley is pleasingly close for coffee shops, restaurants and bars (independent in the main); we like The Orchard, Parlez, Brickfields, Brockley Brewery and Browns of Brockley as just some examples. Coqfighter is a good tip for the best fried chicken burgers around too.
Nunhead (with its high street and villagey feel) is also fairly close - just follow Drakefell Road. Here we like Ayres bakery, Mother Superior and El Vermut bottle shops, and FC Soper wet fish shop, as well as The Old Nun’s Head.
We’re major 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 Telegraph at the Earl of Derby and The Amersham Arms. Thanks largely to Goldsmiths University, New Cross attracts a cool and smart crowd and even has its own contemporary art gallery and a Curzon cinema. A big Sainsbury’s store by NXG Station is on hand for ‘the big shop’.
Deptford High Street and Broadway are fairly local - for classy restaurants including Marcella and The Winemakers Club, and there are cute bars in Deptford Market Yard.
And trendy Peckham is also easily-reached for more options. Some of our favourite SE15 spots are Kudu, Peckham Bazaar, Levan, Forza Wine, 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 a must for a sunset-watch and is very popular on NYE for the panoramic views of London and the fireworks.
Hilly Fields and Ladywell Fields are also close. Greenwich Park and Blackheath Common are but a short bus ride/cycle/drive too. You can also jump on the 484 just outside Dragonfly Place which takes you straight to Peckham Rye Park and Common in under 10 minutes.
