Manor Avenue, Brockley
Fancy a doer-upper? Find this fabulous five storey Victorian semi - of 2466 square feet - in leafy Brockley Conservation Area. Planning Permission is in place to extend to gain an even larger home. And your luck is in - this is a chain free sale; get the keys as soon as the solicitors can complete the conveyancing!
The tall and impressive property rests on a wide and oft-requested street with mature trees, close to Brockley’s popular foodie Saturday Market. Walk eight minutes to Brockley Station. You’re also an easy walk from New Cross and Deptford DLR stations. All are Fare Zone 2. Local schools are all well-regarded, and include Myatt Garden Nursery and Primary (3-11).
These houses are big! With large gardens to boot (this south-east facing one is over 111 feet!). They are usually divided into two, three or four - it’s quite rare to find a whole one! Also (a rare to find bonus) you have foot and vehicle access from the mews at the foot of the long garden.
Starting bottom to top: on the lower ground floor, you’ve got two large rooms of over 15 feet by over 12 feet, and over 17 feet by over 11 feet. The raised ground floor currently offers up a large front reception (over 14 feet by over 12 feet) and a kitchen and bathroom.
The first floor has a huge front bedroom (over 19 feet by over 13 feet), and another basic kitchen and bathroom - as downstairs.
The second floor hosts two large double bedrooms and a small double bedroom, and finally on the third floor you’ve got a massive loft room with accessible eaves storage.
At your feet here are the centres of Brockley, New Cross, Deptford and Greenwich. Blackheath, Peckham and Camberwell are also a short bus ride/drive/cycle. You’re also close to Goldsmiths University and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art gallery. Your local pub - The Talbot - is a strong one.
Deptford High Street (walk 15 or so minutes) is a cool spot to hang out. Deptford Market Yard has a wonderful European vibe. In Brockley we like Brockley’s glorious Saturday market (held in Lewisham College’s walled car park), The Orchard and Brickfields. Also worthy of note is The Rivoli Ballroom (with various pop-up evenings including dances and film screenings), Brockley Brewery, and Hilly Fields Park.
