Manor Avenue, Brockley
Architect-owned and designed Victorian conversion flat of 610 square feet, delivered over the entire lower ground floor of a grand semi-detached house - with its own front door, a private courtyard garden (off the double bedroom), a large reception room, and a Freehold-share. The kitchen and bathroom have been recently and beautifully renovated. You’re in for a right treat!
Find the property on a wide street with mature trees, within beautiful Brockley Conservation Area, close to Brockley’s popular Saturday Market, and just a nine minute walk from both Brockley and St Johns stations. You’re also but a 12 minute walk from New Cross and Deptford DLR stations. All are Fare Zone 2.
In your own front door and there’s a handy and large under stairs store to your immediate left. To your right, you open a door into the huge reception room which stretches over 16 feet by over 13. A cool fireplace with cast iron insert features here, as do stripped wooden floors, a big sash window, and bespoke shutters. To the other side of the fireplace you’ve a handy storage cupboard, that’s flush with the chimney breast.
The independent kitchen sits doorless off the reception room, and is a contemporary affair with lots of slick wall and base units to two walls, cool Corian counters, bang-on-trend monochrome detailing, and pleasingly-generous wine-racking.
The windowed shower room is nothing short of exquisite! With concealed plumbing and contemporary basin and w.c. plus built-in under-basin storage drawers - for all those bathroom bits. Again you’ve got that marvellous monochrome styling - tap, shower fittings, towel hooks, heated towel radiator, and even the loo roll holder! Marble floor tiles and classy rectangular green ceramic wall tiles further impress.
Adjacent you have the property’s decadently-decorated double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 10. French doors open from here onto a really private walled, west-facing and paved courtyard. The perfect spot for entertaining or chilling on your tod.
At your feet 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 with Curzon public cinema, and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art gallery. Your local pub - The Talbot - is a strong one.
Deptford High Street (walk 10 or so minutes) is a cool spot to hang out. Deptford Market Yard has a wonderful European vibe and pizza and tapas places for socialising, and independently-owned restaurants Marcella and The Winemakers impress as well. Isla Ray’s a cute cafe/bar not to be missed, and Stockton and The Job Centre are also popular. The Tea House is our favourite Chinese restaurant and takeaway for miles around.
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.
