Thanks to the development of the Cross-Rail train line at nearby Denmark Hill, Camberwell is now fully on the map for buyers looking for affordable accommodation with an inner-London postcode and a fast journey in to town. With an abundance of Victorian and Georgian properties making up the area it is little wonder the appeal. Although selling and letting prices in Camberwell have risen in recent years it is still more affordable than the neighbouring areas of Dulwich, Herne Hill and Brixton giving residents good reason to feel smug.
Why? Because Camberwell offers great value for money whilst catering for all. For young professional families, there is the appeal of period properties with large gardens, close to excellent schools in both the state and private sectors. These include Lyndhurst Primary, St. Saviours Church of England Primary School, Bessemer Grange Primary School and The Charter School. This has built a friendly community of people who also consider themselves lucky for their proximity to excellent park life, with Ruskin Park and Burgess Park on their doorstep and Dulwich Park and Peckham Rye only a short distance away.
Camberwell has also long been known for its art scene, with Camberwell College of Arts recognised as one of the world’s leading art institutions. A creative vibe permeates the area and it has developed into a destination place for those seeking out cool bars and restaurants and an excellent night out. There is also a good café culture during the day, ensuring that staff and visitors of Kings College Hospital and The Maudsley opposite are kept happy with lunch options. Thus, as well as families buying up the area, Camberwell is also a great choice for buy-to-let investors, whose properties get snapped up by hospital staff and students alike.
