Malpas Road, London, SE4 - £579,950

Pop up a few steps to the original front door. From the hall, the opened-up reception rooms sit to your right, with stripped and oiled floor boards. Both have period fireplaces, a neutral scheme and sash windows. Delightfully, the front window has its original wooden box shutter. Ask us for a demo. The kitchen/diner sits at the rear of the property with a spiral stair down to the 70ft private garden, via a double-glazed back door. The kitchen is simple in style with open-shelf wooden base units, a solid wood counter, a built-in oven and hob, tasteful ceramic tiling, and a ceramic double sink with mixer tap. The walls and ceiling are Farrow & Ball ‘Off Black’ (which also features in the hall, below the dado rail).

Up to the first floor, the master bedroom in ‘India Yellow’ takes the width of the terrace, at 15ft by 11ft. The second double bedroom in ‘Arsenic’ is adjacent, again a good size and with period fireplace. It’s 11ft by 10ft with a sash window that’s south-east in orientation. The bathroom has a white suite, white painted floorboards and a sash window. It is due an update, but functions fine. It’s a good size and has a large linen closet before the bathroom door. You could adjust the layout here too should you wish to do so, once in.

There’s a real buzz about this locale, in the press and on the ground. You have loads of independent cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from. We’re particularly fond of The Broca cafe (amazing coffee) by Brockley station, The Orchard restaurant on Harefield Road, and Meze Mangal on Lewisham Way. Open to the public; a Curzon cinema has recently opened on the Goldsmiths University campus, a short walk away. Lewisham Art House is at the end of the road for interesting exhibitions, plus drawing, ceramic and photography classes.

New Cross and Brockley stations are your closest stations, with Overground and regular mainline services. Deptford Bridge station is also a short stroll for DLR trains (good news if you’re a Wharf-worker). Of the weekend, check out Brockley Market, or saunter down to The Maritime Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the other direction, Peckham and Camberwell are a short bus ride for more options.

There’s a new Sainsbury’s store by Brockley station and a larger store by New Cross Gate station, plus a Tesco Express on Lewisham Way. Green-space? Luxmore and Friendly Gardens are both pretty and local, or check out Telegraph Hill’s Victorian parks, Nunhead’s beautiful cemetery or Peckham Rye Park and Common’s 113 acres. Kids? Local schools Ashmead and Myatt Garden primaries are well-regarded and both are Ofsted-rated 'Good'. ...Read Less
