Thriving and multicultural, hugely historical and with excellent access, New Cross is one of the gateway areas of Southeast London.
If you're going through on the way to areas like Greenwich, Blackheath or Brockley, or perhaps West to Herne Hill or Peckham, you'd do well to stop and have a look around - because this area itself has some of the nicest places to live in Southeast London and its prices are not yet (yet!) earthshaking.
It's fantastically well provided for in terms of high class education, certainly more than most boroughs of its kind. It's home to one of the most well known of city schools, Haberdashers Askes, Addey and Stanhope School, and of course the excellent Goldsmiths College. Other schools in the area provide great education, and the district is within the catchment of a huge variety of schools of all levels. It remains one of the best inner city boroughs for families because of this.
The area is also excellent for nightlife and eating, with splendid restaurants opposite Goldsmiths, as well as cheaper eats elsewhere.
Tangled roads are the main issue in New Cross, but as public transport is improving (the nearby DLR link to Lewisham has already made New Cross more of an attractive proposition for commuters looking for a good deal) this is less and less of a problem.
New Cross doesn't seem like a countryfied area but it provides access (within a few minutes' walk) of some of Southeast London's nicest open spaces. It has its own conservation area around the lovely Telegraph Hill, and Brockley's beautiful Hilly Fields is also very close.
Great houses are everywhere you look here. There are very large, well apportioned and designed Victorian houses lining the largely quiet (despite the busy main roads) sidestreets. In the countryfied areas around the conservation areas there are also some absolutely lovely Victorian villas which offer the most desirable properties around here. There are also blocks of flats, as well as some excellent opportunities for development in many areas as large family homes can be found for good prices if in need of a quick makeover.
If you've been looking at Blackheath or Greenwich, or Herne Hill, and not liked the at times punchy prices, have a look at New Cross.
