Kitto Road, Telegraph Hill
One bed, double-glazed raised ground floor conversion pad of 525 square feet, on a pretty residential street within Telegraph Hill conservation area, set within a period terrace. Telegraph Hill’s pretty Victorian parks are a couple of minutes from your door. Your closest stations are Nunhead and Queen’s Road Peckham (walk 5 and 10 minutes), and Nunhead’s high street is pleasingly-close. Leasehold.
In the main front door and your own front door is to your right. Straight ahead for the door to the bedroom which is a good size double of over 13 feet by over 13, with a big bay window (with original, painted woodwork), yummy high ceilings, and built-in tall wardrobes to both alcoves.
Next up is the reception room in a green hue, which is open-plan to the kitchen. Enjoy far-reaching views from the window above the sink. The kitchen units are smart in white, paired with solid wood counters.
Down a couple of stairs to find the windowed bathroom. This is a good size and has a simple white suite plus an over bath shower.
You are set up well here for all commutes including Overground and Thameslink routes as well as mainline trains into London Bridge, Cannon Street and Victoria. Bus routes also run day and night from nearby New Cross and Queen's Road Peckham.
Once resided in by Victorian poet Robert Browning, this smart, desirable hillside neighbourhood with London skyline views and wide and tree-lined streets was developed in the late C19th, replacing market gardens with high-standard housing.
Telegraph Hill’s Victorian parks are delightful, as is The Hill Station community cafe, and your local Victorian pub: Skehans. There’s a weekly Saturday farmer's market held in the lower park, or nip down to Brockley Market instead. The upper park has incredible skyline views and tennis courts (free to use).
On Nunhead’s high street we like Ayres bakery, Bambuni deli and FC Soper wet fish shop, as well as El Vermut, The Old Nun’s Head and French restaurant Babette. Nunhead’s central green gives it a London-village feel and it’s a pleasant stroll down to Peckham Rye Park and Common down Nunhead Lane.
We’re big fans of New Cross’s centre too, with its frilly, historical buildings, Curzon cinema and growing number of pubs and eateries, including The Rosemary (organic Hungarian fayre), The White Hart, The Rose Inn, The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby and The Amersham Arms. Thanks to Goldsmiths University; New Cross attracts a cool creative crowd and has a contemporary art gallery in the Grade II listed Laurie Grove Baths.
A big Sainsbury’s store by NXG Station is on hand for ‘the big shop’. Deptford High Street is fairly close too for classy restaurants including Marcella. And of course Peckham is also close for more options. Rye Lane is especially popular with the younger crowd with its rooftop bars, trendy work and gym spaces and pop-ups.
