After emerging from congested Deptford, leafy Blackheath in SE3 is a welcome respite. Offering a village atmosphere and adorned by Greenwich Park and the Heath itself, many city dwellers are moving south of the Thames to enjoy the period charms of Blackheath.
Many who begin renting property in Blackheath often end up settling and trading up locally. As an area Blackheath is attracting droves of city workers, particularly those from Canary Wharf. Furthermore, families in north and west London want green space and more property for their money, which is achievable in Blackheath.
The most upmarket areas of Blackheath are home to Georgian and Victorian properties that rival those in Hampstead or Kensington. The elegant period terrace of the Paragon, and detached Victorian homes on the grand Cator Estate will set buyers back well over £1 million.
In the village there are a number of smaller cottages and terraces. Properties to let in Blackheath of this size start around £1600 pcm, but can escalate depending on property and location. Flats for sale in Blackheath can begin at around £250,000 and can be rented for as little as £950 pcm.
