Shardeloes Road, New Cross
Chain-free one double bedroom ground floor Victorian conversion flat of 535 square feet, with a private west-facing garden of over 35 feet.
Set between two town centres, you're just a nine minute walk from Brockley Station, and an 11 minute one from New Cross Station (both are Fare Zone 2 and on the Overground network).
You’re also wonderfully-close to Goldsmiths University, and Deptford and Greenwich are an easy walk for pubs, markets and more.
There’s just one flat above yours and you share a main front door and entrance hall. Your own front door is to your left on entry. Open this and arrive in your large, bay-fronted reception room. It’s over 13 feet by over 12 feet. Stripped floor boards, double-glazed sash windows, white walls and high ceilings impress.
Adjacent is the double bedroom (of over 11 feet by over 10 feet). Stripped boards to the floor and bespoke wardrobes to the alcoves are welcome features. The casement window looks out to the side-return area of the garden.
At the end of the hall, land in your slate-tiled kitchen with modern fitted units, space for a small table and chairs, and the back door out to the garden.
Beyond the kitchen you’ll find the property’s windowed bathroom - white sanitary ware and an over bath shower here, and a handy little lobby with plumbing for the washing machine.
You’re a short stroll from two strong stations. In this spot, you’re also well served for day and night bus services.
You are just around the corner from Goldsmiths University and its famous ‘Scribble’ atop the Arts Complex. Gallery-life? Goldsmiths CCA is a short walk for exciting contemporary art exhibitions in a former Victorian Baths building.
Of the weekend, take a stroll down to gorgeous Greenwich with its Royal Park, river proximity and rich architecture. Or staying closer, Hilly Fields and Telegraph Hill's Victorian parks are too tips with skyline vistas.
Local Farmers' Markets are Brockley Market (held in Lewisham College's walled car park - fancier than it sounds!) and one at the lower park in Telegraph Hill. Both are on Saturdays.
Brockley has some top spots for coffee, brunch, lunch, dinner and cocktails. We like Parlez, The Orchard, Brickfields and Browns of Brockley in particular.
New Cross has a growing number of great places to eat and drink, too; The Amersham Arms, The Fat Walrus and The Rose are recommended.
Deptford’s close for markets and a thriving evening scene - in Deptford Market Yard and on the high street (by Deptford Station). Here we like The Tapas Room and Marcella in particular. Nunhead and Peckham are also close for further options.
