Queens Road, New Cross
Massive one bed Victorian conversion flat of 609 square feet on the upper ground floor of a grand Victorian semi-detached house, close to both Queens Road Peckham (9 mins) and New Cross Gate stations (6 minutes), within Telegraph Hill conservation area. You’ve got the best position in the building we think (love those high ceilings!) and the flat has its own private rear balcony plus communal garden. Both are south-east facing so you’ll catch plenty of rays and enjoy great light through the apartment. Share of Freehold.
There’s a communal entrance and from there open your own front door and turn right for the enormous reception/dining room. It’s over 20 feet by over 14 and at the foot you’ve got double doors to the blissful balcony where you can look over the deep and established communal garden, and steps deliver you down (there’s side/street access as well). The dining area of the main room has ceiling-high bespoke built-in storage.
The property has a great layout with no wasted corridor space - all rooms lead from the main room. At the foot of the room you’ve got the door to the kitchen - this room’s been recently renovated. Modern units, stone worktops, ceramic brick-style tiling and open shelving detail all look and work great. You have a window to sunny garden views.
The bathroom’s set next door with contemporary sanitary ware and fittings. An over bath shower, heated towel rail and built-in storage under the basin are all pleasing decisions.
The large double bedroom is set to the front of the house - of over 14 feet by over 12 - with a huge bay window and a wall of wardrobing (again to the ceiling). As in the reception room; you’ve got solid oak flooring.
Telegraph Hill’s parks are local to you and the lower park has a lovely weekly Saturday market. Another good market to check out is Brockley Market held in Lewisham College’s walled car park (also on Saturdays).
Queens Road Peckham and New Cross Gate 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.
A Curzon cinema is local within the Goldsmiths University campus, plus a new contemporary art gallery too (both very much open to the public). Local watering holes include The White Hart, The Rose Inn, Beer Rebellion, The Earl of Derby at The Telegraph, and Skehans. A tasty and friendly pizza joint is local on Queens Road (Mamma Dough).
For organic deliciousness, check out The Rosemary (a Hungarian restaurant and farm shop) on New Cross Road. Blackbird Bakery by QRP station is great for fresh loaves or a coffee-meet (also has ‘pizza lates’), and Kudu is tough to beat, if you can get a table! Sainsbury's Is local by NXG Station. For more options, it's a short trip to Greenwich, Deptford, Nunhead, Peckham and Camberwell.
