Home to University of London’s Goldsmiths, which is renowned for its arts degrees, New Cross is an artsy community with many historic residential properties, quirky pubs and great places to eat.
In 2018, the university opened Goldsmiths Centre for Contemporary Art, with free public admission and an exciting events programme. The disused Laurie Grove Victorian-era public baths and cast-iron water tanks have been transformed to bring contemporary art from around the world to New Cross. The university’s gym Club Pulse is also open to the public.
Our brother-and-sister founders grew up in the area and it was partly their experience of living in zone two South East London that inspired them to start a new type of estate agency that aims to benefit its local community, beyond providing professional and personable residential sales and lettings services.
A Station Opportunity Study and New Cross Area Framework have been developed to help the area benefit from the forthcoming Bakerloo Line extension to New Cross Gate and Lewisham Stations.
Redevelopment around the Old Kent Road, related to the Barkeloo line extension.
New Bermondsey will redevelop a 30-acre industrial site in South Bermondsey (bordering Surrey Quays & New Cross), providing a new Overground station, over 2400 homes, extensive community facilities and upgraded public spaces, as well as an enhanced Millwall Football Club Stadium.
The 53-acre Canada Water Masterplan will bring exciting developments, with the first phase due to be complete by 2024. This initial stage will provide new civic space, a leisure centre, housing, retail and workspace to the west of the iconic library. The whole project will replace the current shopping centre, leisure park and old newspaper factory sites, and will create a new pedestrian heart to the area – seamlessly connecting the communities of Canada Water, Rotherhithe and Surrey Quays.
" Toby and Tessa recently sold a property for us and we are delighted to recommend their services. They are very professional as well as being friendly and helpful at all times. We never felt we were just clients behind a reference no but human beings with needs and preferences… "
" A very refreshing change to deal with an estate/lettings agency that is so professional, organised, diligent, personable and knowledgeable. And not a pointy shoe or shiny suit in sight. The usual stereotypical estate agent persona doesn’t feature here, and what you get is an experience that is far better than with any other estate agent I’ve ever used… "
" I recently sold my apartment through Urban Patchwork, after initially listing it with an online agent that generated one viewing in three months. Within 48 hours with Urban Patchwork I had two viewings and within a week it was sold for full asking price. Toby and Tessa kept in weekly contact providing updates and working hard to ensure everything went smoothly… "
" The property had been on the market for 3 months with a typical local agent. Urban Patchwork let it within 10 days - down to better quality photos, promotional materials, and good interactions with potential tenants. And they provide free rent collection, which is a useful bonus. I like the fact that they are a social enterprise. Tessa & Toby are definitely a cut above the rest - friendly, professional, and good at what they do… "
" …From start to finish the service they provided was absolutely outstanding, I couldn’t fault it in any way. They were knowledgable about the market, very friendly and professional, and kept up the momentum on the sale the whole way through. Thank you so much! "
" Excellent letting agents - Knowledgeable, capable, trustworthy and ethical. "
" Simply The Best! Urban Patchwork genuinely acted in my best interests throughout the whole process. They were extremely professional and on top of everything. They thoroughly researched my property so that they had a really good understanding of it throughout the whole sale process. They ‘held my hand’ from start to finish. They're good people! And they're EXCELLENT estate agents. You won't be disappointed. "
" Exceptional service. When my flat became vacant it needed refurbishment. Toby helped me refine my specification of work needed, found excellent contractors and supervised the work. I was delighted with the result and appointed Toby to find me new tenants, now in occupation, and to manage the flat. His professionalism, knowledge of the industry and hard work impressed me and I would not hesitate to recommend him, Tessa and Urban Patchwork. This new agency has brought a breath of fresh air to the letting scene.. "
