Egmont Street, New Cross

Delightful three double bedroom bay-fronted mid-terraced house of 1051 square feet (excluding the large basement), with a south-facing garden of circa 50 feet. 

The location is a quiet residential tree-lined side street within New Cross’s Hatcham Conservation Area.

You are just seven minutes by foot to New Cross Gate Station (Fare Zone 2, one stop to London Bridge and on the Overground line). You're also close to great local schools. 

From the hall, two formal reception rooms rest to your right. The front reception hosts a handsome period feature fireplace. Both spaces have picture rail and coving detail. Stripped wooden floors flow through from the hall. 

At the foot of the hall is the property’s generous kitchen (this functions fine but you’ll likely wish to update it, potentially alongside a side-return extension - as many neighbouring homes have opted for). An independent utility room, with a casement window to garden vistas, rests beyond, with a back door out to the garden. The lawned garden has a favoured south-facing orientation; enjoy lashings of sun out here. 

From the half-landing, your first double bedroom is set to the rear of the house (it is over 13 feet by over 8 feet). Your windowed bathroom is next door, with simple white suite and white wall tiles. 

From the main landing, bedroom two rests to your left (of over 11 feet by over 9 feet), and the large twin-sashed master bedroom sits across the width of the house (over 15 feet by over 11 feet). All of your bedrooms have stripped boards to the floor. 

Some area blurb: Hatcham CA is a cute, little-known and very-Victorian residential pocket of south London. From 1614, the land was owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers. When the manor house here (named 'Hatcham Park’) was demolished circa 1840, terraced homes were permitted to be built. Rescued from proposed demolition in the 1970’s, Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990. 

‘Hatcham’ derives most likely from Anglo Saxon; meaning ‘a clearing in the woods’, and reputedly, Charles Dickens wrote ‘Our Mutual Friend’ in a lively local: The Five Bells pub (1864-5).

Stroll 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. 

Local eateries and drinkeries of note include The Corner cafe and The Old Library bar, The Rosemary, and The Rose Inn. And Smokey Jerk is a local gem. 

Nip down to neighbouring SE15 for others - including Peckham Bazaar, Kudu, Kudu Grill, Ganapati, Artusi, Peckham Levels, Miss Tapas, Levan and The Coal Rooms. 

Deptford has a top social scene too - find great food at Watergate, Marcella, Salt and The Tea House for example. There are lots of hip hangouts in Deptford Market Yard and surrounds. Deptford also has its own theatre: The Albany, and a modern leisure centre with lane pool. 

New Cross is home to Goldsmiths University and a cool contemporary art gallery (Goldsmiths CCA), and your local parks include Telegraph Hill (Upper and Lower, with Saturday Farmers’ Market, or hop on a bus down to Brockley Market) and Fordham Parks. 

Eckington Gardens is a small local one with playground and occasional community events like summer movie screenings. 

Grab fresh loaves from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, check out FC Soper wet fish shop as well. And El Vermut and Mother Superior are cool bottle-shops, with seating inside for a few. BARD4100 is the most local addition to Nunhead Lane (for pizza and beer). 

Kids or they are on the horizon? Your most local primary schools are Hatcham Primary (Ofsted-rated 'Good', and which feeds to the secondary based in New Cross’s other local Conservation Area), Edmund Waller and Kender.
