Tressillian Road, Brockley
Marvelous one double bed first floor Victorian conversion flat that’s been beautifully and carefully internally renovated just three years ago by its architect owner.
It’s set within a tall and handsome Brockley Conservation Area semi. Bonus flat features include a share of Freehold, huge sash windows, and an independent windowed utility room (accessed from the communal stairs at half-landing level).
Where can you find it? You’re just a couple of minutes from St Johns Station, and 15 from Brockley Station (with Overground in addition to regular rail services). And Brockley Market - a super foodie one which runs on Saturdays 10am-2pm - is a three minute walk from your door. You’re also gloriously-close to Hilly Fields.
Up a few steps to the main and original front door and a charming hall greets you. Take the stairs and first you’ll find your utility room.
Up to the first floor proper for your own front door. Once in, the bright and carpeted bedroom is set ahead, with a large sash window onto leafy vistas (this neighbourhood is one of the greenest around - we’re smitten!). Built-in shelves and fixed rails to each alcove make clothing and shoe storage seriously simple. This room and the reception have picture rail and coving detail.
To your right of the hall is the property’s windowed bathroom with a neat white suite, smart white tiling with contrasting grout, and an over bath shower.
The reception room is next up: a large, bright and high-ceilinged room (south-east in orientation) of over 13 feet by nearly 11, with pale carpets underfoot, and built-in alcove book-shelving. The independent doorless kitchen is set off the lounge. Handle-free matt units are teamed with solid wood counters, and you’ve another lovely sash window plus stripped wooden floor boards, and some open shelving too - for your best bits. Appliances are high-end and built-in, and are included in the sale.
We’ve mentioned your two closest stations. It’s also an easy walk to New Cross, Lewisham and Deptford DLR stations. You’re well-placed for buses as well - with Lewisham Way at the foot of the street.
This is such a pretty and well-connected spot. You’ve a Brockley postcode (SE4) but you border SE8, SE14 and SE13: you can enjoy all four therefore. Most locally, Brockley Market is a great spot on Saturdays - you are directly opposite it. The Talbot pub is a strong local, as is The Brookmill. Middleton coffee shop is a good tip for fantastic coffee, pastries and brunches, and check out Chicha (serving vibrant Peruvian street food) and Le Terre 5 (offering fresh homemade pasta and sauces).
Brockley has nice independent restaurants such as The Orchard, L'Oculto Cocina and The Gantry, and cool cocktail bars: Brickfields, Joyce, and Brockley Brewery of course - who deliver.
The Deptford High Street area including Deptford Market Yard is searingly-cool with bars, night spots, cafes, restaurants and breweries. We particularly rate Marcella, Isla Ray’s, Stockton and Villages.
Central New Cross is close, for Curzon cinema and contemporary art gallery within the Goldsmiths campus (both open to the public), plus a great variety of pubs; we like The Amersham Arms there opposite NX Station. Meze Mangal (further down Lewisham Way) serves up good value Turkish grub.
Central Lewisham’s handy (about a mile) for mall shopping and markets, plus Sparrow restaurant and The Model Market (summer-months street food heaven!).
Green space? Stroll to Hilly Fields in seven minutes, or walk about half an hour for Greenwich Royal Park.
