An offshoot of the university is a thriving artistic quarter. The many graduates who remain in New Cross help propel the area onto a bigger creative stage. “New Cross is a hotspot for quirky takes on the norm and raw talent,” says Mark. “All it takes is a critic dining in one of our restaurants, a journalist reviewing a band at the Amersham Arms or a former Goldsmith’s student winning an award, and New Cross becomes a little more desirable.” You don’t have to be an artist, or have a beard, man bun or Brompton bike to live in New Cross. Thankfully. In fact, it has been a place for families for hundreds of years, with generations taking residence in the period properties across

SE14. “We have some fantastic Victorian townhouses that span three, four and even five stories, as well as Victorian terraced homes – some with cellars – that make great family bases. The Telegraph Hill, Hatcham Park and St John’s conservation areas are hugely popular for their proximity to good schools and parks,” comments Mark. “Some of our most-requested roads include Jerningham, Pepys, Arbuthnot, Nettleton, Hatcham Park and Casella. Here you’ll find the very best character homes, with many still needing a degree of modernisation – presenting remodeling and appreciation prospects. If you have a property in these catchment areas and are thinking of selling, we can promise there’s no shortage of buyers,” concludes Mark. “It really is a case of X marks the new property spot.”
