Hunsdon Road, New Cross

Delightful three double bed, bay-fronted Victorian terrace of 1081 square feet (excluding the generous cellar and loft spaces) with a low-maintenance rear garden. Parking is unrestricted on-street. 

Find it on an attractive residential street in New Cross’s desirable Hatcham Conservation Area, close to Haberdashers’ Hatcham Primary School. You're also within easy walking distance of the Haberdashers’ Secondary. 

Your local stations are New Cross Gate (walk 10 minutes) and Queens Road Peckham (15). Both Fare Zone 2 and on the Overground network. Bus-travel is easy from here too. 

A neat walled garden with gate and railings sets you back from the pavement. From the hall, your stairs run up ahead, while your double-reception rests to the left - the front room (of over 13 feet by over 11 feet) has a central fireplace with granite hearth, and custom-made shutters to the big bay (sash windows here). The second reception - a natural dining room (11 feet by over 9) - has a double-glazed window onto the side-return area of the garden. Smart oak flooring graces both spaces and the hall too. 

At the foot of the hall you’ve got your generous double-aspect kitchen/diner, which stretches over 21 feet. The kitchen has been recently renovated; smart and timeless Shaker-style wall and base units run along two walls, and these are teamed with wooden counters and large format metro tiling. The property’s second bay window in here is a natural spot for table and chairs. A downstairs/guest w.c. completes the ground floor tour. 

The sellers have souped up their cellar, providing a relaxed media/play/music room (you choose!) and also a dedicated plumbed utility space. 

Up to the half-landing and you’ll find your windowed bathroom with over-bath shower (enjoy high quality sanitary ware and fittings). At the back of the house, adjacent, is a big double-aspect double bedroom - of over 13 feet by over 8 feet. 

The main landing delivers two further doubles. The one on your right is nearly 11 feet by over 9 feet, with a pale carpet and double-glazed window. The twin-sashed master bedroom takes the width of the terrace - it’s over 15 feet by 11 feet, and hosts another lovely fireplace plus an original alcove cupboard. 

Finally, you can access your large loft (via hatch) from the landing space. 

The area? Hatcham CA is a quiet residential little-known pocket of south London. From 1614, the land was owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers. When the manor house (‘Hatcham Park’) was demolished circa 1840, terraced homes were permitted to be built. Rescued from proposed demolition in the seventies, Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990.

Stroll - passing further Victorian housing stock - just 10 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, drinkeries and cafes of note include Corner (cafe), The Old Library (bar), The Rosemary (Hungarian, delicious!) and The Rose Inn. 

Nip down to neighbouring SE15 for more - including Kudu and Kudu Grill, Peckham Bazaar, Ganapati, Artusi, Levan, Peckham Levels, Miss Tapas and Mr Bao. Cool Deptford has a great gastronomic and bar offering too. We rate Deli X, Watergate (small plates, cocktails, wine), Marcella, Salt (pizza, craft beer) and The Dog & Bell pub to name a few. Deptford also has a popular theatre: The Albany, and a modern leisure centre with lane pool, next door to the library.

New Cross is home to Goldsmiths University and a cool contemporary art gallery: Goldsmiths CCA.

Local parks include Telegraph Hill (Upper and Lower, with Saturday Farmers’ Market, or pop in a bus down to Brockley Market) and Fordham Parks. There are also two little neighbourhood parks: Eckington Gardens and Bridgehouse Meadows.  

Grab your fresh loaves from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, check out such delights as Soper’s (wet fish shop), El Vermut and Mother Superior (fancy bottle shops) and Goodcup (coffee shop). 

Kids or thinking of? Your most local primary is just over the road (a traditional Victorian school building, with impressive modern architectural treatment by Jestico + Whiles, and which feeds to the secondary school based in New Cross’s other Conservation Area), Edmund Waller and Kender. Deptford Green is a second well-regarded local secondary school.
