St. Norbert Road, Brockley
Offers in excess of £850,000.
Delightful extended Victorian terrace with three bedrooms and an east-facing garden, in a strong spot close to Brockley Station - walk here in under five minutes.
Downstairs, to start, you’ve got a gorgeous formal front reception room of over 13 feet by over 11 feet. Welcome features here include a period fireplace and alcove shelves for books and bits. Sliding doors open to the glorious fitted kitchen. White-washed original floor boards flow through both rooms.
The kitchen units are a timeless Shaker-style. A ceramic Butler sink, stone worktops and a central island all impress.
Beyond the kitchen area you’ve got a bright dining space, with rustic French-style hexagonal terracotta tiles to the floor. A huge picture window frames a view of the pretty garden nicely (the garden extends over 26 feet and gets lots of sun), and you’ve got part-glazed timber French doors out as well, plus roof lights over the former side return area. A bank of built-in T&G-fronted cupboards provides oodles of storage. The ground floor tour is completed by a handy downstairs w.c.
Up the stairs and your windowed bathroom is up ahead, and this has a traditional style with a central free-standing bath. There’s an independent shower, too.
Next you’ve got your first bedroom in a lovely yellow hue, of 12 feet by over 8 feet. The master bedroom rests to the front of the house and is over 14 feet by over 13 feet, with custom-made closets to each alcove, and an attractive feature fireplace.
It’s up the stairs for the second floor bedroom with skylight and regular windows, and which has generous accessible eaves storage.
Handily you are but a five minute walk from Brockley Station - Zone 2 and on the London Overground network. The area by the station has been recently pedestrianised and the cafes here spill into the street - giving it a warm European feel.
The local primary schools are all good ones: John Stainer, Myatt Garden and Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham Temple Grove Free School (the latter with secondary provision).
Local delights to you include Good As Gold coffee shop and Cooper’s Bakehouse (in Dragonfly Place). Central Brockley is also close for coffee shops, restaurants and bars (independent in the main); we like The Orchard, Parlez, Brickfields, Brockley Brewery and Browns of Brockley as just some examples.
Nunhead with its high street and village vibes is also close. Here we like Kudu Grill, Ayres bakery, Mother Superior and El Vermut bottle shops, and FC Soper wet fish shop, as well as The Old Nun’s Head.
We’re big fans of New Cross’s centre as well, with its pretty, historical buildings, and growing number of pubs and eateries - including The Rosemary (organic Hungarian fayre), The Rose Inn, The Telegraph at the Earl of Derby, The Amersham Arms and Meze Mangal.
Thanks largely to Goldsmiths University, New Cross attracts a cool crowd and even has its own contemporary art gallery and a Curzon cinema.
Deptford High Street and Broadway are also local - for classy restaurants including Marcella and The Winemakers Club, and there are cute bars in Deptford Market Yard.
And trendy Peckham is also easily-reached for more options. Some of our favourite SE15 spots are Kudu, Peckham Bazaar, Levan, Forza Wine, Ganapati, Peckham Levels and The Bussey Building.
For park-life... you've got Telegraph Hill's pretty Victorian ones (with views) close by. Telegraph Hill Upper Park is very popular on NYE for the panoramic views of London and the fireworks. Hilly Fields and Ladywell Fields and Nunhead Cemetery are also close. Greenwich Park and Blackheath Common are but a short bus ride/cycle/drive too.
