Jerningham Road, New Cross
Dishy two bedroom conversion flat within a handsome Victorian semi, with its own (very generous) private garden, plus own front door and Freehold-share. The property also benefits from side access.
Find it on one of the predominant streets of the lovely Telegraph Hill Conservation Area in New Cross; coveted for its beautiful wide tree-lined streets and fancy street lamps, and once the home of Victorian poet Robert Browning.
New Cross Gate Station is just a four minute walk from your door. It’s Fare Zone 2, only one stop from London Bridge, and on the London Overground network. Parking is unrestricted on-street.
Nip down a couple of steps from street level and your front door is revealed within the bay - next to two pretty sash windows. You open directly into the inviting open-plan reception room/kitchen/diner - which runs the width of the building: 18 feet. The reception area has stripped original floor boards, while the kitchen is smartly-tiled. The fitted kitchen has Shaker-style units, space for the regular appliances, open shelf detail, brick-style wall tiles, and wooden counters.
Moving through the flat, next on your right is the second bedroom - which takes a double, of over 8 feet each way. And to your left is a modern internal bathroom with white suite, good storage, over bath shower, and large profile wall tiling.
Lastly, you’ve got your wooden-floored master bedroom of 13 feet by 9 feet, which enjoys fitted book-shelving, and a deep closet. A double-glazed door provides access (via side path) to your large and sunny low-maintenance garden of over 30 feet. It’s a genuine joy out here as you get lots of sun and you’re surrounded by gardens on all sides.
This pretty hillside residential area was developed in the late C19th, replacing market gardens - owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers, who controlled the development - with high-standard housing.
Telegraph Hill's magnetism has been increasing in intensity since the London Overground line at nearby New Cross Gate, New Cross and Queens Road Peckham stations (all Zone 2) further opened up the transport links beyond the already-rather-good links! Bask in the connectivity of Zone 2, with a green environment and smashing parks (Telegraph Hill's Upper and Lower Parks, which have been open to the public since 1895, are just up the road) and community spirit too - local gems include a weekly Farmers’ Market (held each Saturday 10am to 3pm), pop-up restaurants, The Hill Station cafe, and local creative festivals.
A large Sainsbury's store sits behind NXG station for groceries, and there are cool independent shops, cafes and restaurants popping up on both New Cross Road and Queens Road, alongside the gastro-pubs. We particularly like The Rosemary for organic Hungarian fayre, the pizzas at The Rose Inn, and the craft beer at Beer Rebellion.
A Curzon cinema and awesome contemporary art gallery (CCA Goldsmiths) are on the Goldsmiths campus, just a short walk away, and absolutely open to the public.
For more options, Peckham, Deptford, Greenwich, Brockley, Nunhead and Dulwich are all easily reached by foot, bicycle, bus or train.
