Picture perfect oasis of suburban living
Residing between charming Dulwich Village and edgy Peckham, East Dulwich needs no introduction. This leafy south London suburb was first developed in the nineteenth century on land owned by Alleyn's College and is now a lovely, friendly community with a great high street, outstanding schools and fantastic open spaces only a 15 minute commute into London.
At the very heart of East Dulwich is Lordship Lane – a bustling high street filled with coffee shops, boutiques, organic food outlets and the kind of pubs you'll want to spend the entire day in. The famous organic butcher, William Rose, has queues around the block at the weekends. The area also has a busy street market on Saturdays on North Cross Road.
The houses were predominately designed for large families (mainly upward of three bedroom properties) and the area is now filled with professionals, families and well to do types. The property market has thrived over the past few years due to the picturesque setting and well-connected (Zone 2) location - think “Wisteria Lane”.
