Hunsdon Road, New Cross
Chain free, totally and immaculately refurbished (completed 2017) Victorian three bed, two bath bay-fronted terraced house with generous loft and cellar, plus a pro-landscaped garden.
Find it on a quiet residential street close to New Cross Gate and Queens Road Peckham stations - walk 12 and 15 minutes. Parking is unrestricted, on-street.
You have new plumbing and pipes plus new wiring throughout the house. There is also sound proofing insulation between each of the floors, and full insulation in the ceilings.
You're located in New Cross’s desirable Hatcham Conservation Area, a short stroll from Haberdashers’ Aske’s Hatcham Temple Grove Primary School (3-11) with its modernised Victorian building by Jestico + Whiles.
In the front door and your large formal through-reception sits to your left, stretching over 24 feet. Stripped floor boards, alcove shelving and period fireplaces all impress.
To the back of the house you’ve got a double-aspect kitchen/diner which extends over 23 feet with oversized double-glazed French doors at the foot opening out to the garden (which has patio and cool lighting)
The fitted kitchen's a slick and modern one with plenty of cupboards, stone counters, a breakfast bar, and high-end integrated appliances (Miele, Siemens and Neff) - all staying. A windowed downstairs w.c. rests neatly at the near end of the room.
Access the big basement under the stairs. This has a laminated floor and is fantastic for storage.
Up to the half-landing and you’ll find the main bathroom with contemporary-style sanitary ware and over bath shower. Grohe and Duravit fittings are welcome choices. Next door is a double-aspect double bedroom with en suite shower room (with smart fittings again), and deep built-in custom-made closets.
From the main landing you have a twin-sashed double bedroom of over 13 feet by over 14, with a bank of built-in wardrobes to an entire wall, and adjacent is another double bedroom of over 11 feet by over 10, with a built-in wardrobe to one alcove.
Access the loft from the landing. It’s fully boarded and has a fitted ladder.
Saved from proposed demolition in the seventies(!), Hatcham Conservation Area was designated by Lewisham Council in 1990. For a commute or adventures you are close to two stations (it’s just one stop to London Bridge from NXG). Or take a short bus ride from nearby Old Kent Road to Elephant & Castle and beyond. The area’s also popular with cyclists for its short flat route into town.
We’re big fans of New Cross with its growing number of cool pubs and eateries, including The White Hart, The Rose Inn (ace 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 also has a contemporary art gallery and Curzon cinema which are open to the public.
Of the weekend, Deptford, Greenwich (both have great markets) and Peckham Rye are all close. Surrey Docks Farm is a good outing too.
Pick up your fresh loaf from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, or at Ayres on nearby Nunhead Lane. While you’re in Nunhead, Bambuni deli and Soper’s wet fish shop and El Vermut are also strong. And Babette puts on a great meal.
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' Aske's Hatcham Temple Grove (a feeder school for the highly-regarded local HA secondary school), Kender, and Edmund Waller. And all have good nurseries, from 3 years.
