Queens Road, New Cross
Big, bright and beautiful one bedroom flat of 578 square feet, on the first floor of a handsome semi-detached Victorian house.
You’re close to both New Cross Gate (six minutes) and Queens Road Peckham (10 mins) stations, within Telegraph Hill Conservation Area. Share of Freehold.
The flat has been owned just once. The impressive building was recently and sympathetically converted to a very high standard (2019); the architecturally-designed apartment has a strong layout, and delivers pleasing finishing and details - such as old school style radiators, Farrow & Ball and Little Greene wall and woodwork colours, sash windows, stripped floorboards, built-in storage and original fireplaces.
There’s a deep shared front lawned garden, and the flat has its own big rear garden section (which is accessible via the side of the house).
Up a few steps and open into a large shared hall and take the stairs to the first floor - where you’ll find your own front door. Once in you have a storage cupboard to your immediate left.
Swing a right for the huge reception room that’s open-plan (by design not compromise) to the stylish, timeless kitchen; the whole space is over 20 feet by over 15, and has two sash windows to the front of the building - onto far-reaching and interesting urban views up to the City. The kitchen worktops are Carrara marble, and you have a Smeg oven and integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher (included in the sale).
The large double bedroom - of nearly 15 feet by over 13 - is set to the rear of the building, and has two sash windows, a decorative fireplace, smart pale carpet, and two big, built-in wardrobes in each alcove. A door opens from this room to the slick shower room - with large shower, marble tiling, and contemporary high-end fittings. A sash window delivers pretty views of trees and the dishy homes lining and climbing up Pepys Road.
Telegraph Hill – the largest and most desirable Conservation Area in New Cross – is popular for its lovely Victorian parks and frilly Victorian architecture. The neighbourhood was once home to Victorian poet Robert Browning and was developed in the late C19th, replacing market gardens owned by the Worshipful Company of Haberdashers (who controlled the development), with high-standard housing. As well as the attractive architecture and period street lamps, what stands here now is a leafy community with weekly Farmers’ Market and community event calendar, plus good connections to central London alongside great schools and parks.
New Cross Gate and Queens Road Peckham stations are both a short, easy walk away for Overground and regular services (London Bridge is just one stop from NXG, or pick up the Jubilee line at Canada Water). The day and night bus routes are brilliant too in this part of town.
Walk five minutes for Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art (known as Goldsmiths CCA): a free public art gallery ‘bringing world-class exhibitions to south London’.
Local watering holes include The Rose Inn, Beer Rebellion, The Montague Arms, Skehans, and The Earl of Derby at The Telegraph. A tasty pizza joint is local on Queen's Road (Mamma Dough). For organic deliciousness, check out The Rosemary (a Hungarian restaurant and shop) on New Cross Road. Blackbird Bakery by QRP station is great for fresh loaves or a coffee-meet. Sainsbury's and TK Maxx stores are local by NXG station. For more options, check out Greenwich, Deptford, Nunhead, Peckham and Camberwell.
