Pepys Rd is a Principal Tree Lined Telegraph Hill street, and mid-way up the hill is my client's detached period beauty, where one is immediately attracted to its individuality: Detached, parking for two cars.
We enter into the bright hallway, where we see the first tribute to the period heritage with some lovely floor tiling.
Into the front reception: Elegance abounds starting with the magnificent fireplace, high ceilings and skirtings, big bright bay windows, coving and picture rails and beautiful exposed flooring.
Double doors welcome you to the rear reception, where the theme continues. Huge French doors open to the garden and there's more light from the side windows.
A short flight of stairs leads us down to a landing with a very handy loo, then it's into the kitchen.
What a transformation we see here. Fabulously extended in glass and steel framework, all high gloss, high tech and family ready. The resin floor has underfloor heating to keep things snug.
Up to the first floor landing where again there's tons of light thanks to the side windows. Here we discover the sumptuous bathroom with toasty underfloor heating and separate WC, and the first of the four double bedrooms.
Up again to the front of the house is where we find the principal bedroom, with bay windows, fireplace and solid oak parquet flooring with underfloor heating, along with bedroom two behind.
Up to the top floor and we have another bathroom again with underfloor heating, with whirlpool bath and walk in shower, and finally bedroom four. The laundry cupboard is up here too.
The loft is presently unconverted, although there is a Velux window in the roof, so the option is there, subject to the usual (detached - no party wall agreements - Yay!). The same can be said for the basement, where my client has an office and further storage - bags more potential in either the top or bottom of the house.
The rear garden is barely overlooked and the side access is so handy for bikes etc.
The location is so central for everything you'd need on the hill. The parks are just a minute up the road, where of course we now have the excellent weekly farmer's market, tennis courts, skate park, picnic area, kids club and play areas et al.
Edmund Waller primary, and Haberdasher Aske's primary and secondary are the closest school options, all really well regarded.
New Cross Gate for mainline into London Bridge (one stop - 7 mins) and the Ginger Line for Docklands, Stratford and the West End, is 10 mins down the hill, and Nunhead is also very handy for Victoria & Blackfriars.
What's going on?
Having lived in Telegraph Hill for over 20 years I can say it's an amazing community, demonstrated by the incredible festival performances and exhibitions every year, and the Hill Station café's legendary pop ups and events that make it such a hub of the area.
Sainsbury's supermarket is just behind NXG for the big shop.
Brockley's Saturday market has fast become a foodie favourite, and Brockley Deli is a nice spot on the corner of Brockley Cross, as is Browns by the station, for coffee and cake. Parlez is a great Brunch spot on the plaza there
Pub-wise, Skehan’s on Kitto Road, and The Telegraph at The Earl of Derby on Dennett’s Road cater to the Hill-it's.
Nunhead has a fine array of traditional shops and some good eateries, and New Cross itself is on the up thanks to venues like the new Curzon cinema and contemporary art gallery on the Goldsmiths campus.
Deptford High Street and the revamped Market Yard by the station are easy to access too, for restaurants and bars including Marcella, The Tapas Room and The Winemakers Club and, of course, Little Nan's for cocktails in teapots!
