Area Guides

  • Clapham

    Clapham Common has been a sought after location since the Clapham set counted William Wilberforce amongst its alumni and has barely been out of vogue since. The major draws are the park, the ease of transport, sitting right on the Northern Line with three stations within easy walk and the bars and restaurants that pepper the area.

  • Brixton

    Loved by those in the know, Brixton has a massively dedicated fan-base in people in search of culture, cuisine and nightlife. The redevelopment of Brixton's covered market has created a mecca to global cuisine; as well as the iconic cinema and arts venue, Windrush square with its new museum and Tate library, the many great pubs, restaurants, music venues and night clubs make it clear why this is one of the fastest growing areas of London in the popularity stakes. Great transport links (with further proposed improvements) and Brockwell park, regarded by many as the capital's best open space complete the set of lifestyle bonuses in this very fresh and vibrant corner of London.

  • East Dulwich

    East Dulwich has been climbing steadily for 25 years made largely of a V shape of Victorian streets that descend from The Horniman museum high on Forest Hill to the station at the valley floor and closed in by the hugely popular Lordship Lane and Peckham Rye Park to the East. Much of the area's deserved popularity arises from the plethora of quality restaurants, cafes, delis, shops and pubs and a proud village identity and a fierce local, community and organic led ideologies.

  • Peckham

    Peckham is an area on the move at the moment - every aspiring fashonista and creative seems to be moving here. Pop up art galleries, bars, restaurants, theatre and cinemas abound but the area still has a reasonably low price threshold, though it has moved a long way in recent times. Large amounts of social houses sit along side some of the most beautiful architecture in the whole of South London, and some of these properties are now as expensive as they are in more established neighbours like Dulwich. Transport links are excellent.

  • Nunhead

    Nunhead is an up and coming area sandwiched between the now expensive areas of Telegraph Hill, East Dulwich on the other side of Peckham Rye Park and the area of Peckham Rye. With a village green at its centre (which was returned to grass parkland of yore in 1980 and improved in 2001) surrounded by a well established butcher, fishmonger and baker, a couple of excellent family pubs and beautiful almshouses, the inhabitants are fiercely proud of its community.

  • Forest Hill

    Forest hill is one of those areas that a little value can still be found, being that little bit further out than its adjoining areas of Dulwich and Peckham. It has a slightly less organised feel around its centre but this is more than made up for by the street after street of characterful Victorian and Edwardian housing stock. Being that bit further out allows it to retain an element of wildness with the likes of the wonderful Horniman Gardens and the hill on which this sits offers some of the most magnificent views of the London skyline available.

  • Herne Hill

    Herne Hill is one of those areas that belong to those in the know. Brockwell Park alone could generate enough demand on its own, but there is more to the area than one of the most staggeringly beautiful (and user friendly) parks in London. With a large variety of homes ranging from the massive turn-of-the-century houses of the southern quadrant neighbouring Dulwich Village to typical Victorian terraces to the North of more working class origins.

  • Dulwich Village

    The sweetest little village in London, this Georgian rural idyll has changed not a jot since being swallowed by London. How this is possible is pretty confusing, but it is the case. The park is one of the great pulls as is the oldest public art gallery in the UK - The Dulwich Picture Gallery. The Greyhound pub and surrounding restaurants, cafes and shops all studiously help maintain a feel of yesteryear's superiority over the present.

  • New Cross

    The area of New Cross is little known to the outside but has many gems and is incredibly well located. Many people have only heard about crime reports from the dark times of the 70's and 80's but the area has come a very long way since then. Some areas of New Cross are so in demand these days that properties are fought over by city workers, driving some past the million mark and a few far beyond that.

  • Tulse Hill

    Perfectly placed between Streatham, Dulwich, Brixton and the up and coming West Norwood, this area is one of the hidden gems of London. It will soon find itself on the move with its proximity to Brockwell Park, its larger than average Victorian housing stock and its transport links to central London. Brockwell park being on the doorstep cannot be underestimated in terms of lifestyle value, from its amazing views over the city to its beautiful hills and grand trees to its tennis courts, the universally lauded Lido spa complex, regular events, great pubs that border it and community gardens (and spirit). The high streets of West Norwood and West Dulwich are just minutes away too.

  • Streatham

    The area on the move, with its’ distinctive avenues of red brick and tiled, elegant, late Victorian terraced houses. The high street has had its ups and downs: the Romans paved it, the Saxons renamed it, the seventies destroyed it and the noughties begun a steady rebuilding of reputation which continues today with the new Streatham Hub development, the world famous Hideaway Jazz bar and a multitude of bars and cafes sprouting up or undergoing improvements. Streatham Common, Streatham Green and the Tooting Commons are all on hand with the latter being enormous and offering all that one hopes for, from running track to lido to tennis courts and much more at a five minute trot from central Streatham.
