Egmont Street, New Cross

A charmer of a two double bedroom Victorian house, with a large cellar and a generous low-maintenance south-facing garden. Parking is currently unrestricted on the street. 

Find the handsome home on a quiet residential side street, within Hatcham Conservation Area, just a six minute walk from Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham Temple Grove Primary School.

Walk only seven minutes to New Cross Gate Station: Fare Zone 2, one stop to London Bridge, on the London Overground network, and next to a big Sainsbury’s store.

In your front door and a large reception/kitchen/dining room rests to your right - extending over 25 feet. Welcome features in the front reception space include a big bay window, stripped floors, and a wood-burning stove. The fitted kitchen boasts plenty of modern white units, paired with timber counters and open shelf detail. 

At the rear of the ground floor is a handy lobby area, and your back door to the path which takes you to your large paved and sunny garden. The gardens have been divided laterally (over the rear outdoor areas for this house and the one next door) so you have a notably wide space - yours is the rear plot. 

Access the large cellar from the ground floor. It’s 350 square feet and is an excellent storage and utility space, with plumbing for a washing machine etc. 

Up to the first floor and you’ll first find a neat and windowed bathroom with white suite and over bath shower. Two double bedrooms complete the tour; both have stripped floors, pale hues to their walls, and sash windows. The master bedroom is over 15 feet by over 11 feet and the second is 11 feet by 10 feet. 

The area? Hatcham CA is a little-known 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. Reputedly rescued from mooted demolition in the seventies, Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990. ‘Hatcham’ derives most likely from Anglo Saxon; meaning ‘a clearing in the woods’

Stroll (past the easy on the eye Victorian housing stock) just seven minutes to New Cross Gate Station. 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. You can also cycle into the city easily (15-20 minutes for Westminster, for example).

Local eateries and drinkeries of note include The Rosemary (Hungarian, organic, delicious), and The Rose Inn. Nip down to neighbouring SE15 for others - including Kudu, Peckham Cellars, Peckham Bazaar, Ganapati (who also deliver to SE14), Artusi, Peckham Levels, Miss Tapas, Forza Wine, Levan, The Coal Rooms and Mr Bao. 

Deptford has quite the gastronomic offering - with Marcella, Winemakers, The Tapas Room and a warm European vibe, with a choice of hip hangouts in Deptford Market Yard and surrounds. Deptford also has a cool theatre: The Albany.

New Cross is home to Goldsmiths University with a Curzon cinema and a contemporary art gallery - both tucked off the main road on campus, but very much open to the public. 

Local parks include Telegraph Hill (Upper and Lower, with Saturday Farmers’ Market, or hop on a bus down to Brockley Market) and Fordham Parks. 

Grab your fresh loaves from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, check out Soper’s wet fish shop and El Vermut and Mother Superior bottle shops, and the beautiful Victorian cemetery.
