Edric Road, New Cross

Delightful three double bed, bay-fronted Victorian terrace of circa 1170 square feet - excluding the generous cellar and loft spaces, with a sunny-south-facer of a garden of over 45 feet.

Find it on a quiet, tree-lined residential street in New Cross’s desirable Hatcham Conservation Area, a short stroll from Haberdashers’ HTG Primary School (3-11) and 12 minutes from both New Cross Gate and Queen's Road Peckham stations (both Fare Zone 2 and on the London Overground network). 

Car parking is unrestricted on Edric Road, and a large bike parking locker has recently been installed just along the street.

The current owners have overseen a thorough and lovely refurbishment of the property, including a full re-wiring, re-plumbing and re-plastering, and a new boiler and new wooden sash windows (both of which are still under warranty), and an overhaul of the garden. Welcome period features include original Victorian wooden floors and period fireplaces.

In the front door and your large through-reception sits off to your left. The front reception room is over 13 feet by over 11 feet and has a pretty bay window and cast-iron fireplace. The second reception has a large south-facing window onto the side return area. 

At the end of the hall, the door to the cellar is on your right. And beyond this is a good storage cupboard. Opposite is a neat and windowed downstairs w.c. 

Currently the cellar’s used for storage and utility, but more could be made of it should you fancy a future project. 

Ahead and the large, double-aspect kitchen/diner stretches 20 feet. Timeless Shaker-style wall and base white units are teamed with smart stone counters. Another bay window provides the perfect spot for your table and chairs. The freshly-renovated kitchen is fitted with a high-quality cork floor (from the local Dulwich flooring company). Timber-framed French doors open onto the low-maintenance garden which faces south, and is lawned and paved with well-established borders. There’s a useful side-return space (obvious extension potential here). 

Up to the half landing and set at the back of the house you have a large double bedroom with double-aspect. It’s over 15 feet by over 9 feet and enjoys a sunny orientation and garden views. 

The windowed bathroom is adjacent - with traditional style sanitary ware including a roll-top bath, and an over bath shower. A Moroccan tile floor is also fitted, with underfloor heating. 

From the main landing you have the master to the front (over 15 feet by over 11) and the third double bedroom (over 10 feet by over 9 feet). Both have original alcove cupboards/closets. All the bedrooms have stripped floors and white walls. From the landing you can access the large loft via the loft hatch.

Hatcham CA is a little-known but well-connected residential pocket of south London. From 1614, the land was owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers. When the manor house (named 'Hatcham Park’) was demolished circa 1840, terraced homes were permitted to be built to strict specifications. Saved from proposed demolition in the seventies(!), Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990.

For the commute or adventures you are close to two stations (it’s one stop to London Bridge from NXG, or two from QRP). Or take a short bus ride from nearby Old Kent Road to Elephant & Castle and beyond. 

We’re big fans of New Cross - which boasts a growing number of pubs and eateries, including The Rose Inn (strong pizza menu plus top roasts on Sundays), The New Cross House, The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby, and The Amersham Arms.

Thanks to Goldsmiths University, New Cross has its own cool contemporary art gallery. Of the weekend, Deptford, Greenwich (both have great markets) and Peckham Rye are all close. Surrey Docks Farm is a good outing too and can be combined with a very nice river walk/cycle. 

Pick up your fresh loaf from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, FC Soper wet fish shop and El Vermut are also good recommendations. 

For the regular ‘big shop’, the big Sainsbury's by New Cross Gate station will serve you well, or it's a short drive to large Tesco stores on Old Kent Road or Surrey Quays, or Asda or Aldi.

Your most local primary schools are Haberdashers' HTG (a feeder school for the highly-regarded local HA secondary school), Kender, and Edmund Waller. And all have good nurseries, from 3 years.
