Eltham Se9

Recommended Posts

Hi Everybody,

my wife and I have been trying to buy a property in south east London for a while and had to painfully notice that the prices escalated in the last couple of month beyond our financial means. We are therefore looking for areas which are a bit cheaper then Camberwell, East Dulwich or Brockley One area, which caught our attention is Eltham, it is admittedly quite far out and only has a train connection, but the houses seem reasonably nice, it has good schools, green areas and a function but slightly dull high street. It would be great to hear from anybody what they think of the area and if it is a good place to consider buying.

Thanks in advance for any tips

PS: I am aware of the terrible Stephen Lawrence case, but it has been a long time ago and the few times I visited I did not get a racist vibe from the area despite my ethnicity.

Thanks for the helpful comments. Does this mean that the area north of train tracks is generally seen as nicer? We have seen a property around Court Road (close to Eltham Palace), which was quite nice, but some areas around it looked a bit tired. Thanks for the tip with Charlton, I didnĀ“t have it on my radar, but this might be a good option as well.

It's strange because I've seen ZERO improvement in the ambiance of either Camberwell or Peckham in the past 6 years. None whatsoever.
