Where you are in life plays a significant impact on where you want to live. Therefore, families are looking for homes in a pleasant location with good schools and plenty of family-orientated fun. At this stage, living close to your work isn’t as crucial a factor as it is for other people, but there is still a need to be able to manage the commute with a minimum of fuss and effort.
At Hunters Forest Hill, we are pleased to say we work closely with vendors and buyers. We know what features and facilities people look for in an area, and we know what the areas we represent have to offer. If you are looking for a family-friendly location, you will find Brockley is fantastic.
The commute is simple to and from Brockley
With Brockley located in Zone 2, the commute to the heart of London is a straightforward one. From Brockley Station, you can enjoy a Southern Trains service connecting to London Bridge and Victoria. You can also utilise the London Overground Line, which services Dalston Junction, Highbury and Islington, Crystal Palace and West Croydon.
Motorists can take the conveniently located A200 to reach central London, or by heading south, they can access the A20, which provides a route to the M25. There are also bus services from Brockley connecting with Holborn, St Paul’s, Camberwell Green. For late-night workers and revellers, there are also buses running to and from Trafalgar Square and Tottenham Court Road.
Brockley schools are good enough for most families
Of course, a suitable commute is one thing that families need, but there is also a need for well-regarded schools. Thankfully, this is something Brockley has in abundance. There are some highly praised schools in Brockley alone, with plenty more choice in easily accessible neighbouring areas.
For primary schools, you have options such as Beecroft Garden Primary on Beecroft Road, Gordonbrock Primary School on Amyruth Road and Myatt Garden Primary School on Rokeby Road. Prendergast School on Adelaide Avenue is a well-thought-of secondary school.
Brockley Market is a popular attraction
While there are many High Street brands and boutique stores, it is fair to say Brockley Market is a huge draw. With fresh produce and street food, you can feed and entertain the kids on the day, and for the next few days. Many families find Brockley Market is as much of a social event as a shopping experience, and it is something which adds local colour to Brockley.
The bohemian feel of the area, influenced by the nearby London’s Goldsmiths College and Camberwell College of Arts, helps to make Brockley a welcoming and relaxed environment. This is ideal for families, and we believe the area is suitable for this type of buyer.
