Mr Clarke thinks :
The location doesn’t get better than this
Nestled within a beautiful Victorian Terrace on one of the best streets in Brockley, sits this exceptionally spacious and stylish one-bedroom garden flat. Located in the heart of the Brockley conservation area, this home has everything you could ever want including generous internal proportions and a sun soaked private courtyard, together with a separate studio set within the communal gardens. This outstanding property also has the benefit of share of freehold.
Open your own front door and immediately notice the wonderful flow from the bright hallway with its original floorboards, through to the fabulous and well-proportioned eat-in kitchen. This sleek and modern space has been cleverly designed with masses of storage and modern white units delivering an exceptionally bright and welcoming place to enjoy cooking and entertaining. Accessed from the kitchen, we are so envious of the property’s unique green spaces, offering the perfect spot to enjoy your first coffee of the day amongst the morning sun.
Carry on through the apartment and you enter the luxury spa-style bathroom with underfloor heating, a large walk-in shower for the morning rush and a separate bath to linger in on winter nights.
The large, bright living room features an original open fire in working order, original wood floorboards and bespoke bookshelves. Fitted plantation shutters add to the feeling of luxury and perfectly frame the large sash windows.
Carrying on through, there is a larger than average double bedroom with feature fireplace. We love the clean lines, relaxed atmosphere and decorative pieces that adorn the walls. It is well positioned within the home so you benefit from the morning light.
Mrs Clarke says :
The large sash windows and the open fire are a real treat
We just love all the details sprinkled throughout this beautiful period home, perfectly pairing original features with lots of modern touches. The last thing to mention is that the flat also benefits from a large internal storage room at the front of the property. This would be a perfect project to take on and convert into a study, studio or single bedroom.
The owners look forward to the new purchasers enjoying this property as much as they have: “Brockley Road has been such a great home for us. Benefitting from two outside spaces, you can have coffee and breakfast in the bottom garden to catch the morning sun, then the private patio is a real sun and heat trap throughout the afternoon. There are also shared communal raised beds for growing veggies, and our newly fitted-out garden room/studio for both relaxing and storing all of your horticultural accessories.”
All of this sounds lush to us. All that is left is to take a tour of this lovely home yourself.
- Style : A beautifully warm and bright Victorian home

The warm original floorboards and feature fireplaces give a nod to the building’s historical past.
Green area with personality and charm
Brockley is a relaxed and leafy place to live, yet also conveniently located within easy reach of Central London. It has a strong, friendly community with an artistic and independent character, reflected in the growing number of independent traders springing up in the area. Sitting centrally amongst the neighbourhoods of New Cross, Peckham and Lewisham, and with its up and coming gastronomical scene, Brockley has quickly grown in popularity.
There are an array of fantastic open spaces including Telegraph Hill and Hilly Fields parks which both offer stunning views over the city, together with Ladywell Fields and the beautiful Nunhead Cemetery and nature reserve.
Finding a spot for a drink isn't difficult either with fantastic pubs on the doorstep such as The Brockley Orchard, The Talbot and The Brookmill. For the beer connoisseurs, also try the Brockley Brewery Tap Room or the London Beer Dispensary.
Brockley has a well-deserved reputation as being something of a foodie hotspot. From top class fish and chips at the Brockley's Rock to modern British fare at the Gantry, or some spice at Babur or the Masala Wala Cafe, all tastes are well catered for. Can't decide what to eat? Try the famous Brockley farmers market, selling everything from vegan doughnuts to out of this world deep fried chicken burgers.
From Brockley station you can take direct trains to Shoreditch High St, Highbury & Islington and London Bridge. Further links are provided from Crofton Park with Thameslink services to Blackfriars and St Pancras and from Lewisham with DLR services direct to Canary Wharf.
