An inner suburb with improved staying power

Honor Oak in the London Borough of Lewisham is proving to be very popular with commuters who work in the City and Canary Wharf. From the inner suburban area they can reach London Bridge via the Overground in 15 to 20 minutes. Travellers to Canary Wharf can change to the Jubilee line at Canada Water and reach their destination in under 20 minutes.

The area is a rather small district but it has a very interesting property scene. There are large semi-detached Victorian and Edwardian homes, including some five and six bedroom double-fronted properties. Some of these have been transformed into spacious flats whereas others remain family homes. In addition there are Victorian terraces and later properties. There are a few purpose-built flats too. A lack of new builds is the only drawback.

The lifestyle residents can enjoy in Honor Oak makes it stand out in particular. The large number of commuters and families living in the area has helped to inspire many local businesses. Now you can enjoy independent restaurants, delicatessens, coffee shops, and even gift shops. On top of this there are incredible open spaces at One Tree Hill, including a woodland nature reserve, Brenchley Gardens, and Blythe Hill Fields.

Traditionally the area was popular with young professionals and families would move further out of the city as their children grew older. Improvements in the local schools have changed this though and increased the staying power of the area. Now there are outstanding primary and comprehensive schools. Private school options are available too.

There is plenty to attract people to Honor Oak and make them want to stay. This is great news for investors who want to purchase a property that has a good opportunity of drawing prospective tenants.
