There is a lot to consider when looking for a new home, and the local area has a big part to play in what buyers search for. A buyer needs to ensure they find a home that is not only suitable for their housing needs but which is located in an area that suits their life. The New Cross commuter options ensure this is a part of London that ticks all the boxes for many willing buyers.
At Hunters Forest Hill, we are pleased to say we have assisted many buyers and vendors to connect. We know the importance of transport and commuter options. Working from home is becoming a more integral part of the economy, but for now, the vast majority of professionals need to travel to their place of work. Also, when you live in London, you want to see as much of it as possible, so residents want to feel connected to their favourite social destinations.
We believe New Cross has a lot to offer, and with two
With services to Highbury & Islington, West Croydon, Crystal Palace, London Bridge, London Victoria (via Sydenham and Clapham Junction) and Coulsdon Town (via Sydenham), the London Overground service from New Cross Gate provides an excellent range of options for residents. Whether you are heading to work or a social occasion, New Cross is well-connected to many parts of the capital.
Travelling by bus is also an option in New Cross
While the rail network to and from New Cross is highly regarded, it cannot meet every travel need. There are local bus services available, and you can easily connect to Blackheath, Greenwich, Lewisham, Peckham and Surrey Quays from New Cross.
Potential for new commuter options
If you are looking to buy property for the long-term, or as an investment opportunity, it is essential to stay in touch with potential development work. TfL is considering extending the Bakerloo line, and part of the plan would be to develop a new station at New Cross Gate. In their own words, this would offer “better connectivity to National Rail, Overground and buses”.
With many examples of property prices rising due to improved rail connectivity, there is a lot to be said for investing in New Cross with the hope of these plans being finalised and put into action. It is hoped an announcement regarding the extension of the Bakerloo line will be made in 2020. If it is a positive announcement for the area, New Cross will become an even more desirable area for property buyers.
