Forming as part of the great ‘Telegraph Hill Conservation’ area, is this impressive Victorian house which has lovingly been in the same family for almost as long as Queen Victoria reigned and sadly is now up for probate. A must see property and as a blank canvas, because although it needs modernising throughout, it will make an ideal project/ home as it still maintains many of the original features and characters.

This lovely family house is spread over 3 floors, starting from the lower ground floor up to the first floor. On the lower ground floor, you enter through a door leading from the front garden with steps down into the kitchen area. There are two additional doorways, one that leads into the hallway with a pantry and the other into the dining room.

The dining room has an ornate fireplace and a set of patio doors leading unto the rear garden. There is a separate connecting door from the dining room into the lower ground floor hallway which further leads you to a bathroom and a bedroom/ reception room overlooking unto the garden. Take the staircase from the lower ground floor up to ground floor hallway/landing which leads you to the main front door.

From outside, as you walk through the front paved garden and up a few flights of steps which leads you to the main front door of the house into the ground floor hallway/ landing, on your right is a grand double reception room 9.4M long, this though reception room has a triple aspect bay window to the front and a single to the rear and also has character and opulence with high ceilings, original coving and two ornate fireplaces. Still on the ground floor there are two further rooms to the rear of the building, one currently used as a second kitchen area which could be converted into an office/ library or ensuit and the other room is bedroom 4.

Take the staircase up to the upper most level unto the first-floor landing/ hallway and you will find a further three large bedrooms and a family bathroom. The principle bedroom is 5.8M X 5.1M which has a triple aspect bay windows to the front and a single window to the front. This property as mentioned before has been in the same family for over 50+ years and still retains most of its original character features such as coving, picture rails fireplaces, etc.

One thing you can never change about a property is its location and where this property resides you wouldn’t want to cause you have it all on your doorsteps. Let’s start with every Saturday you may find yourself roaming around the famous “Telegraph hill farmers market” and if that doesn’t fill your shopping basket then you have the large Sainsbury supermarket at the bottom of the road including several independent organic grocery stores most no more than a 5- 10 mins walk from your front door.

There is a plethora of coffee shops, cafes, craft beer bars and restaurants minutes away spilling all the way to some of London’s bohemian neighbouring towns like Deptford, Lewisham, Brockley, Peckham which offer a wide variety of both day and night-time activities for all ages.

Living within such proximity where you can easily walk or ride your bike 5- 10 mins to almost everything is a bonus. Should you need to venture further to commute to work or elsewhere, New Cross Gate train station is all but 5 mins walk away, taking you to London Bridge 5 minutes or to Cannon Street in 8 minutes. There are several other stations such as New Cross, Nunhead, with connecting to London Victoria, Charing Cross or City.

There are several great Ofsted schools from kindergarten to senior schools in the area which fall within the catchment of your front door, just as there are outdoor activities and parks for the young and old to relax or exercise at.

Hurry up and come down to view this property as it may be at least another 50 years before you can catch a glimpse or be fortunate to purchase such a blank canvass to stamp your personality into. It is also a developer's dream - if you are looking to create a masterpiece, this property can be your signature statement once completed. Additional benefits are many, each level already has separate services so three gas/ electrics are already set up.
