Hilly Fields Crescent, Brockley
Park-facing life-enhancing two double bedroom conversion pad with private garden plus deck, garden studio, side access, its own front door, and good storage (enjoy loft storage above the second bedroom, and chest-height basement storage below the master).
With a Freehold-share, it's one of just two apartments in a big Victorian double-fronted semi within Brockley Conservation Area.
Hilly Fields (which opened to the public in 1896, thanks to Octavia Hill) is a delightful green space with sports courts, bowls club, cricket club, playground, cafe, and even a stone circle! Its summit stands 175 feet above sea level - offering incredible panoramic views.
A traditional tiled path is a pleasing beginning. In the front door with stained-glass detail (noting the custom-made bench and old school style radiator in the hall area), and a smart front reception rests to your right - it’s over 12 feet by over 11 feet, with park vistas, bespoke shutters to the twin sashes, a beautiful period fireplace, and alcove shelving.
To your left is the recently-renovated bathroom (you’ll also find plumbing and cupboard for your washing machine in here), with frosted sash window, T&G and gloss-finish ceramic tiles, and white sanitary ware with traditional-style fittings.
At the foot of the hall, you land in the large double-aspect open-plan kitchen/diner, of over 16 feet each way, with wooden floors and a part-glazed timber-framed back door to the garden. You'll entertain effortlessly in here. The fitted kitchen is a timeless Shaker-style in navy, with an island, stone counters, and a house-amount of cupboard space - taking advantage of the ceiling height (access the highest wall units with the assistance of a custom-made timber ladder).
Your two bedrooms are accessed from this main room. The master bedroom is over 11 feet each way, with cast-iron feature fireplace, wooden floors, and glazed French doors onto the deck area of the garden.
The second pale-carpeted bedroom has a triple-aspect (plus skylight window), glorious garden views, and a built-in wardrobe.
The garden studio/office has power, and has been fitted out with a run of base cupboards to provide utility functionality and storage. A separate shed compartment is handy for gardening bits etc.
Walk 11 minutes to Brockley Station for regular and Overground rail services. It's just two stops to London Bridge. For high street needs, you’ve got Brockley and Ladywell town centres within easy walking distance. And local recommended spots include The Orchard, L'Oculto Cocina, Joyce and Brickfields (Brockley), and Mamma Dough, The Ladywell Tavern, The Larder and Oscar’s coffee shop (Ladywell).
Beyond beautiful Hilly Fields, other local green spaces include Ladywell Fields (where you’ll find the Ravensbourne River among other treats), Telegraph Hill Park, and Brockley and Ladywell Cemetery.
