Zone 1 has a number of overlooked areas where Londoners can find more affordable homes. At Finefair we work hard to find these locations so we can offer advice to investors. This also helps us to remain one of the best property specialists in the capital. Our diverse services help too, especially because we are the number one for estate management Southwark has.
Elephant and Castle
This is a location with a poor reputation but it is changing rapidly. Regeneration and new developments are helping to get rid of the rougher edges. What is left is a location with great amenities, including fast Tube links, and lots of potential.
One of the things that really make the area stand out is the price per square foot. In prime Zone 1 locations like Mayfair and Hyde Park prices can easily reach £6,000/sq ft. In Elephant and Castle the average price is just £1,200 per square foot. This is a huge saving and is fantastic for first time buyers as well as investors who want their budget to go further.
The area has some incredible amenities that locals love. Borough Market is just a short walk away. As a result people have easy access to top quality fresh fruit, vegetables and a myriad of other products. Mercato Metropolitano is another foodie paradise, full of wonderful stalls and retailers. Southwark Playhouse is in the area, great for some culture.
Commuters have everything they need in Elephant and Castle. The Tube station is on the Northern and Bakerloo Lines and there are also overground trains on Thameslink and southeastern. There are plenty of bus services too. Many locals who work on the other side of the Thames choose to cycle.
