Pepys Road, New Cross

A delightful three bed first (top) floor Victorian conversion pad within New Cross's leafy Telegraph Hill Conservation Area. It measures in at 840 square feet, has a Freehold-share, and is in fabulous just-move-in shape - with neat white walls, oak floors, and modern fixtures and fittings throughout, plus charming box-ticking period features such as high ceilings, a big front bay window, sash windows, and a couple of original fireplaces.

The flat enjoys an east-west orientation that’s favoured by artists; you’ll enjoy great light throughout the flat, throughout the day. 

Once home to Victorian poet Robert Browning, this leafy hillside neighbourhood was developed in the late C19th, replacing market gardens owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers (who controlled the development) with high-standard housing. You are pleasingly-positioned on the no-through section of Pepys Road, just past Telegraph Hill’s pretty parks and The Hill Station cafe, St Catherine’s Church and Vicarage, and the main campus of Haberdashers’ Aske’s (3-18).

Parking is currently unrestricted on this and nearby streets, and you're within easy reach of three Fare Zone 2 stations: walk eight minutes to Brockley, 10 to Nunhead and 12 to New Cross Gate. Brockley and NXG are on the Overground as well as offering main line services. 

In the main front door and your own door is straight ahead. Once in, take the stairs up to the first floor, and to the front of the house is a huge reception/dining room/kitchen of over 17 feet by over 15 feet. A generous bank of smart white wall and base units (incorporating integrated appliances) runs along the near wall, paired with wooden counters. Bespoke shutters feature to the west-facing windows. 

Next door's a double bedroom of over 12 feet by over 11 feet, with alcove closet and lovely feature fireplace. A sash window delivers green vistas. 

Down a few stairs, moving through the flat, next on your left is the windowed bathroom - with contemporary white sanitary ware, central taps, and an over bath shower. 

Beyond is a large single bedroom of 8 feet by over 7 feet, with built-in cupboard to the far corner. 

At the rear of the flat is the largest of the bedrooms (it’s over 14 feet by over 11 feet), with twin sash windows to the far wall, and another feature fireplace to the near wall.Little ones or thinking of them…? There are lots of good schools and nurseries really locally, including Haberdashers' Aske's (a through-school for ages 3-18), and John Stainer Community and Edmund Waller (3-11) primaries. And Bebright Bunnies, Stepping Stones and Monkey Puzzle nurseries. 

Local green spaces include Hilly Fields and, more locally, Telegraph Hill’s Victorian parks. The lower park hosts a chilled Saturday market, while the upper boasts tennis courts. On the market theme - Brockley Market (also a Saturday one) is also excellent - walk about 15 minutes. 

Brockley’s got some top places for food and drink - including The Orchard, Parlez and Coqfighter. Find fine coffee at Browns of Brockley and Good as Gold. Brickfields is spot on for cocktails, and we rate Brockley Brewery highly too. 

Nunhead - with its high street and village feel - is really close as well: here we like Ayres bakery, Mother Superior wine store/deli, and FC Soper wet fish shop, as well as El Vermut and The Old Nun’s Head.

New Cross is close too (walk 12 minutes) - with its fancy, historical buildings, and growing number of pubs and eateries - including The Rose Inn, The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby and The Amersham Arms. Thanks largely to Goldsmiths University, New Cross attracts a cool creative crowd and even has its own contemporary art gallery and a Curzon cinema. And a strong book shop: The Word. 

Deptford High Street and Broadway are no great distance either - for classy restaurants including Marcella and The Winemakers Club, and there are cute bars and eateries in Deptford Market Yard. The Tapas Room is particularly nice. 

And lastly, trendy Peckham is easily reached for loads more options. Some of our favourite SE15 spots are Kudu, Peckham Bazaar, Levan, Ganapati, Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building.
