5 Bedroom House For Sale
Huge five-bedroom home with a (self-contained) basement, original features, kitchen/diner, bathroom, shower room, double reception and ravishing 109ft south-facing garden. Near Zone 2 trains/Overground links and Haberdashers Askes.
These homes are known for their large gardens and basements - many of which are used as granny/au pair/teenage digs or simply rented out (they were all built with separate entrances). This house sits on exactly the right side of the street, giving the garden the advantage of a direct southerly aspect. And what a garden this is, stretching just shy of 110-feet, it has a herringbone brick patio, a deep lawn, a rear pergola and is chock-full of established flowers, trees, ferns, shrubs and climbers.
This house has a large, recently refurbished kitchen/diner with a Rangemaster stove and white kitchen units. The side bay window floods the room with light and creates the perfect dining spot. In fact, the house is sunny and bright throughout.
All three first-floor bedrooms are large doubles with original fireplaces; the master measures an impressive 21-feet across. The second bedroom has an original Victorian wardrobe while the rear has a built-in wardrobe and garden views. The family bathroom on this floor has the original Victorian transfers in the door's glass panels, green tongue-and-groove panelling, elegant white sanitaryware and traditionally-styled chrome taps.
On the second floor is a rear double bedroom with a built-in wardrobe and original fireplace, a study (or fifth bedroom) and a shower room. The basement is a great size, has its own front door, windows, a rear garden door and stairs connecting it to the main house. Do with it what you will!
New Cross Gate station is an 8-minute walk for Zone 2 trains (London Bridge, Victoria) and London Overground links (Canada Water, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington). Queen's Road offers the same routes plus connections to Elephant & Castle (for Bakerloo and Northern lines) and Clapham Junction. Nunhead trains are also in Zone 2 and travel to Victoria, Blackfriars, City Thameslink, Farringdon and St Pancras.
Your nearest schools are superb. Edmund Waller is a much-loved primary while Haberdashers' Aske's takes children from 4-years to 18-years, is Ofsted 'outstanding' and one of south London's most oversubscribed schools.
Goldsmiths' University brings with it a great selection of local bars and eateries. There's a large Sainsbury's and TK Maxx in New Cross and a regular farmers' market on beautiful Telegraph Hill Park, just up the road.
