Why buy a flat when you can buy a brand new design led, Freehold house.
A total charmer of a one bed, semi-detached Freehold house with south-facing façade, on a tree-lined residential street close to all things in Brockley. The footprint of the house is a tidy 550 square feet with front and rear landscaped gardens.
It is enchanting, spatially dramatic and cleverly conceived, and the team behind the project are Maack Architects who specialise in Sustainable Design led Development and Project Management, and have built several other design led properties in the area. They, together with the Eco-Refurbishment company, have built something unique and the envy of all their neighbours!
Open directly into the house's double-aspect beautifully crafted living room and dining space with GluLam timber beams and aluminium bifold doors opening onto a private rear garden, there is a large skylight in the reception room ceiling adding to the huge amount of natural light spilling in. The bespoke German (Schiller) kitchen is tucked neatly around the corner but works as part of the open plan area. There are Limed oak floors creating a light clean, scandanvian feel to the spaces. Washing machine is on the hall cupboard.
The kitchen includes an induction hob, oven, integrated fridge freezer, intergrated mircowave, undermounted sink and dishwasher with plenty of storage space and ample work surfaces. An accoya timber double glazed window looks out onto the front garden. Silestone kitchen work surfaces.
The large en-suite bathroom sits off to your left as you enter the bedroom and also houses the washing machine. Walk in shower, storage, natural lighting. The bedroom space is generous and light with cleverly built in wardrobes and timber double glazed windows.
You are a short jaunt from lots of cafes, bars and restaurants of Brockley. Locally, check out (events at) The Rivoli Ballroom (if it's good enough for Kylie!), London Beer Dispensary, Jam Circus and The Brockley Jack Theatre, and indy cafes and restaurants such as Arlo & Moe and Malaysian Deli. Babur (the restaurant and the separate takeaway) and The Orchard also come highly recommended. Local parks include Hilly Fields Park with tennis courts, and where you can even take Nordic Walking classes, and Blythe Hill Fields. On the horizon? A new Curzon cinema is opening in Ladywell Tower (just a 15 minute stroll from the house). For more options, Deptford, New Cross, Peckham, Camberwell, East Dulwich and Forest Hill are all easily reached.
This is a hot, becoming-noticed locale, Brockley's reputation as a focus for the arts in South London with its close proximity to Goldsmiths College and Camberwell School of Art, and transport is a doddle: Brockley Station with London Overground and main line services is a mere 3 minute walk away, with brilliant services to destinations which include London Bridge (10mins away) and Canada Water (9 mins away) whilst the Overground runs to Highbury and Islington via Shoreditch. Bus routes on your doorstep include the 171 and 172 (to Tottenham Court Road and Clerkenwell Green respectively). Jump off at New Cross Gate or Elephant & Castle for Overground and Underground.
