St. Norbert Road, Brockley

Extended and enhanced Victorian four bed, two bath (plus downstairs w.c.) terraced house of approximately 1300 square feet. The property is delivered over three floors - incorporating a deftly-done loft extension; new to 2022. A landscaped east-facing garden of 26 feet completes the package. 

The handsome property has been the recent subject of thoughtful and thorough refurbishment and redecoration (2018-19, with the loft extension added this year): works have included new electrics throughout, new plumbing (including pipes, slimline radiators and a new combi-boiler), the addition of insulation under all the floors, a side-return extension, new kitchen and bathrooms, and the restoration of period features. Plus the house sports a new front door, and all the windows have been upgraded to double-glazed sash windows. 

It’s a strong spot close to Brockley Station - walk here in just four minutes. And John Stainer Community Primary School (Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’) is just over the road. 

From the hall it’s a left into the front formal reception (of over 13 feet by over 11 feet) which runs part-open-plan to the second reception: a natural dining space of over 11 feet each way. Wooden floors flow through both reception spaces from the hall. Next - and pleasingly open-plan to the dining area - is the slick kitchen which extends over the former side-return (skylights here), and has plumbed underfloor heating. The modern fitted kitchen has ceramic wall tiling, spot and pendant lighting, on-trend terrazzo counters with a breakfast bar/bar area, and you have lots of glazing: enjoy garden views from a large window, plus an oversized glazed door onto the garden. A neat w.c. completes the floor. 

Up the stairs and you’ll first find a modern sash-windowed bathroom to the rear of the first floor; boasting both bath and independent shower (we love the blue herringbone tiling in here), plus under-basin storage and a stainless steel heated towel rail. 

Next door is your first double bedroom (12 feet by over 8 feet) with a zesty yellow accent wall and white-washed wooden boards to the floor. The triple-sashed master bedroom rests across the front of the house. It’s over 14 feet by over 13 feet, with a pretty feature fireplace.

The second floor hosts two further double bedrooms (the rear room is over 10 feet by over 8 feet, and the converted loft bedroom is over 12 feet each way), plus a windowed shower room - contemporary sanitary ware and cool monochrome fittings feature here. The larger of the bedrooms has accessible eaves storage plus built-in closets.

Kids or thinking of? 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).

Very handily, you are a short 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. 

Across the road, find a handy Sainsbury’s, a yoga studio, and Good As Gold coffee shop. Also close is Cooper’s Bakehouse (in Dragonfly Place). 

Central Brockley is a short stroll for cafes, restaurants and bars, which are pleasingly-independent in the main. We like Tai, 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 rate 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: Goldsmiths CCA. 

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 hip 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.
