Leylang Road, New Cross
Well-presented two bed conversion of 735 square feet, with private rear garden (access via stairs), on a tree-lined residential back street within Hatcham Conservation Area. The flat has two double bedrooms which are nicely set apart from each other, a huge reception room, a neat bathroom, and an independent eat-in kitchen that’s double-aspect. The lawned garden is a very sunny spot - with its south-easterly orientation. Leasehold.
There’s just one flat below you and you share an entrance hall at ground floor level. In your own front door and you take your stairs to half-landing level. From here the bathroom is ahead to your left. This has a smart and modern white suite, brick-style tiling, and an over bath shower. Next up next door is a large utility cupboard that’s perfect for the washing machine. The second bedroom’s up ahead, with views over gardens, while the large eat-in kitchen rests to your right. Find contemporary fitted wall and base units in here plus open-shelving detail and plenty of counter space. Before you reach the kitchen door there’s a set of stairs down to the back door and ultimately, the garden.
Up to the main landing and to your right is the master bedroom of over 10 feet by nearly 11. Then to the front you have the big reception room that’s over 15 feet by over 11. Two sash windows feature here, along with neutral walls, and a pale carpet lies underfoot. Both the bedrooms are carpeted too.
For the commute or getting out and about, you are close to two Fare Zone 2 stations: New Cross Gate and Queen’s Road Peckham. Or take a short bus ride from nearby Old Kent Road to Elephant & Castle and beyond.
We’re huge fans of New Cross’s centre with its pretty, historical buildings, plus growing number of pubs and eateries, including The Rosemary (organic Hungarian fayre), The White Hart, The Rose Inn, The New Cross House, The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby, The Amersham Arms, Fat Slice and The London Particular cafe.
Thanks to Goldsmiths University, New Cross attracts a notably creative crowd and has a contemporary gallery and Curzon cinema - both open to the public. New Cross’s Telegraph Hill (Lower Park) area has a great Saturday market on Saturdays from ten.
Deptford, Greenwich and Peckham Rye are also close for markets and more. Nunhead with its high street village attraction is close too: we like Ayres bakery, Bambuni deli and FC Soper wet fish shop, as well as El Vermut, The Old Nun’s Head and Babette.
Pick up your fresh loaf from Blackbird Bakery by QRP station, and while you’re in the arches, check out Vintique for fabulous furniture for your new pad. For the regular ‘big shop’, the big Sainsbury's that's just 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 Aldi or Asda.
Your most local primary schools are Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham Temple Grove, Kender, and Edmund Waller. And all have good nurseries, from 3 years.
