Queens Road, New Cross
Offers in excess of £550,000.
Smart two bedroom apartment of 727 square feet, with its own front door and Freehold-share. It takes the bottom floor of a handsome Victorian semi-detached house.
You are close to both New Cross Gate (six minutes on foot) and Queens Road Peckham (ten minutes) stations, within Telegraph Hill Conservation Area.
The impressive building was sympathetically converted to a very high standard just a few years back - in 2019 - when four spacious, architecturally-designed apartments were created (from a dilapidated old single dwelling) with really 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 garden, and the flat has its own low-maintenance rear garden section in two tidy tiers (with direct access from the master bedroom).
Through the gate to the right hand side of the house, your own front door is at the side of the building. You land in a generous hall that’s over 13 feet long, with window to the side.
To your immediate left is a slick bathroom with contemporary suite and fittings (these include a marble sink and marble tiling, and over bath shower).
Next door is a huge reception of over 22 feet by over 13 feet, with bespoke shutters to the big bay window. This is open-plan to the immaculate kitchen - with Carrara marble worktops, and a Smeg oven and integrated fridge/freezer and dishwasher. This room’s a real dish! With ceiling rose and coving detail, deep bay window, and period fireplace with marble surround (yes - more marble!). You also have some tastefully-painted and original alcove cupboards.
The property’s two bedrooms sit to the rear of the property; the master is over 16 feet by over 12 feet, with stripped boards underfoot, and built-in wardrobes to each alcove, and the second bedroom, adjacent, is nearly 12 feet by over 7, and carpeted.
You can get out to the garden via the master bedroom (with handsome glazed doors directly onto your private patio) or via lobby off the second bedroom (plumbing for the washing machine is found here too).
Telegraph Hill – the largest and most desirable Conservation Area in New Cross – is popular for its lovely Victorian parks and fancy Victorian architecture. The neighbourhood was once home to Victorian poet Robert Browning and was developed in the late C19th - replacing market gardens which were 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.
Local galleries include Goldsmiths CCA (a very short walk) and South London Gallery in Camberwell (a short bus ride).
Local eateries and drinkeries include The Rose, The Rosemary, Beer Rebellion, Mamma Dough, Skehan’s and The Old Library. Corner (cafe) is a buzzing local newcomer too.
For more options, it's a short journey to Greenwich, Deptford, Nunhead, Peckham and Camberwell.
