New Cross Road, New Cross
Grade II listed Georgian/Victorian-cusp semi-detached house of 1562 square feet. Enjoy plenty of period features, notably wide hall and landing areas, two independent reception rooms, a large eat-in kitchen and three double bedrooms - all delivered over three floors. An alternative setup gives you four bedrooms and one large reception.
Off-street parking and a generous walled garden (wider than the house and stretching 50 feet) with gated side access complete the package.
The location is a well-connected spot: you are only nine minutes by foot from Queens Road Peckham Station, and 11 from New Cross Gate Station. Both are Fare Zone 2 and offer Overground and regular services. There are lots of useful bus routes on the road as well.
A yellow front door is a cheery welcome. First on your right is the first reception - of over 13 feet by over 12 feet, with stripped and stained floors and a big sash window. This room also works as a bedroom; it’s a wonderfully flexible house. Next door is the first bedroom - of over 12 feet each way. Wooden floors, high skirtings and a sash window bring on the smiles again. Plus garden vistas.
Travelling down the stairs, between the upper and lower ground floors, you’ll find the back door to the garden - this is a neat and low-maintenance affair, with paved and lawned areas and a sturdy shed that’s staying.
The lower ground floor hosts a huge front reception room (it’s over 19 feet by over 12 feet - with a pale carpet, recessed lighting, a wood-burner, and access to a good storage vault under the front steps) and a roomy eat-in kitchen: this is over 12 feet each way, with timeless and plentiful Shaker-style wall and base units, smart floor tiles and metro-style wall tiles, and a cute serving hatch (in use as a cookery book shelf).
Up to the first floor and you’ll find two big sash-windowed double bedrooms to front and rear (these are both over 13 feet by over 12 feet), and the property’s smart and windowed bathroom. Here you’ll find a free-standing roll-top bath, over-bath shower, and traditional-style fittings.
What’s about? The immediate NXG area has some excellent fairly new arrivals including Corner (cafe) and The Old Library (bar and events hub). Long-standing New Cross joys include The Rosemary (Hungarian food and live music nights plus pottery courses), The Rose Inn, Smokey Jerk, and Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art. A couple of small convenience stores are within a few minutes from your door.
Nip down to neighbouring SE15 for many others - including Peckham Bazaar, Kudu, Ganapati, Artusi, Peckham Levels, Miss Tapas, The Sourcing Table, Levan, The Coal Rooms and Mr Bao.
Deptford has a strong gastronomic offering too - with Marcella, The Tapas Room, Salt (pizzas and craft beer) and The Tea House, and a choice of hip hangouts in Deptford Market Yard and surrounds. The Dog and Bell pub and Watergate wine bar are also worthy of a walk. Deptford also has its own theatre: The Albany, and a modern leisure centre with lane pool.
Local schools include Haberdashers' Hatcham Primary (ages 3 to 11, which feeds to the local secondary), Kender and Edmund Waller. All are very well-regarded.
Local parks include Telegraph Hill (Upper and Lower, with Saturday Farmers’ Market, or hop on a bus down to Brockley Market) and Fordham Parks. Eckington Gardens and Bridgehouse Meadows (the former New Cross greyhound and speedway stadium!) are small local ones.
