Little discovered corners of the capital: south east London property for sale

South east London property has become something of a must-have purchase. With more established parts of the capital experiencing historically strong house prices that have been galvanised further by international interest, a degree of 'displacement' is taking place. South east London estate agents including Winkworth have noticed an influx of property buyers from other parts of the capital. Many people have been pushed out of their usual purchasing area, leaving them to look at other London neighbourhoods. In turn, this has a knock on effect in south east London. Buyers who would traditionally have bought in prime central London are now looking at the high-end suburbs of north west and south west London. In turn, the usual home movers in NW and SW London are being displaced due to this new competition. They too are adjusting the boundaries of their property search and south east is on their radar. What makes the south east London property market unique is the pressure from the bottom as well as the top of the market. There are a number of south east London neighbourhoods self regenerating and creating new names for themselves, as well as some more established areas where property has always been desirable. Property for sale in Greenwich, flats to rent in Dulwich and houses for sale in Blackheath have never been unfashionable. However, with property prices at a more affordable level in many SE London postcodes, there is competition from local residents looking to get on or step the property ladder, as well as frantic buying interest from higher-end displaced Londoners. Although south east London is rapidly finding an equal footing with its more established capital counterparts, there are still some under-exploited areas to consider, including: Property for sale in Crystal Palace Winkworth Crystal Palace estate agents are monitoring the news that a Chinese investment group is set to rebuild the old glass-and-iron Crystal Palace that burnt down in 1936. If completed, it will no doubt throw a spotlight on this corner of south east London in the Bromley borough. The area, famed for its concrete dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park, had a mini rejuvenation when the Overground service arrived, linking SE19 to West Croydon, Dalston, Canada Water and Shoreditch High Street, cutting journey times dramatically. Property for sale in Herne Hill It amazes us that, with such trendy neighbours in Brixton and Dulwich, Herne Hill hasn't risen to prominence sooner. That said, SE24 is quickly gaining a reputation as 'the' place to search for houses and flats for sale in south east London. Herne Hill has its own train station, farmers' market and even velodrome, making it an interesting place to live. Plus The Herne Hill Society charitable organisation is dedicated to improving SE24 for residents, local businesses and visitors. Property for sale in New Cross New Cross began to raise eyebrows around 2008, when Princess Beatrice studied at Goldsmiths University slap bang on the area's one-way system. While the thought of Royalty mooching around SE14 elevated the area's profile somewhat, real progress has been seen in the last five years. Together with neighbouring Deptford, New Cross has stolen the 'edgy arts' title from east London areas such as Shoreditch and Whitechapel. Properties for sale in New Cross tend to be majestic period dwellings that have, in some instances, been converted into flats. Property for sale in Surrey Quays What was a poor relative of Bermondsey has stepped out of the shadows fuelled, in part, by the runaway success of nearby Canary Wharf. Many of the houses and flats for sale in Surrey Quays are waterside - set either by the Thames or overlooking the many inlets in the area. Original wharf conversions and gleaming new builds are the order of the day, filled with young professionals and families enjoying the excellent transport links. Surrey Quays itself is on the east London Overground Line, while a few steps away is Canada Water Tube Station.
