Considering moving in London? How about Beckenham?
A very interesting suburb; it was home to David Jones who later changed his name to David Bowie. He played his first gig in The Three Tuns, which is now the local Zizzi’s restaurant in the high street.
Beckenham offers excellent transport connections, with a choice of three stations: Beckenham Junction, New Beckenham and Beckenham Hill. It’s a perfect location if you need to commute into London.
St Mary’s Catholic, Wolsey Bridge and Clare House are all good. Secondary schools, and Harris Academy in Bromley also has a good reputation. There are two excellent independents: Kings and Bishop Challoner.
Plenty of good Turkish places to eat such as Kemer and Lalezar. A traditional Italian called Zi’Teresa and plenty of coffee bars.
Where to buy
Nowhere in London is cheap but at least in Beckenham there are some grand streets full of roomy Edwardian Houses, which are more affordable than a lot of equivalent locations. Park Road and Copers Cope Road are worth considering. Asking prices are high with three bedroom Edwardian semi detached houses around the £500,000 mark. The average asking price in the area is £585.918 with a 14.78% increase over the past year.
