Grove Park New to area  

I'm moving to Grove park 2mins from station from New Cross area.

I don't know that area and reading mixed reviews.
Is it safe and where the nearest supermarket or Costa shop.

Grove Park Weve loved it  

We made the terrifying change to south of the river and am pleased we did. Still good value in properties here and a short journey into London. Weve been here just over a year and the demographic of people purchasing housing is very middle class young Londoners who cant afford zone 3. Feeling lucky to have got in when we did, and so pleased to have a nice garden with corona isolation.

Grove Park Grove park is great !  

We are a young couple and first time buyers and we bought a lovely three bedroom in downham the area is lovely /quiet , beckenham hill park is just down the road . Grove park station is great for getting to London Bridge/Cannon Street and charring cross . Also bromley south station is just a 15 min bus ride. Grove park is nicely placed between beckenham and Bromley where there are plenty of shops and restaurants . Everyone Iv met in downham have been very friendly . It is a quiet area , but London is only short train journey away .

Grove Park Go for it, hidden value, so close to london!  

We moved here in 2017 from zone one London and found it is amazing value, loads of young families moving here and wonderful neighbours. Can't beat the quick train to London generally super reliable 13 mins to London Bridge... can't beat it. House prices are still really low so lots of my friends are moving to the area. Cant believe our small mortgage for a three bed house!!!
Could do with some decent places to eat as there is only so much fish and chips one can manage but as stated, easy drive to 'proper' high streets of Bromley and Beckenham.
Go for it.

Grove Park Just moved here from north London no regrets!  

Solid location on the up and up. Lewisham spending a tonne on regeneration outside the station will be finished early next year.
Surprised at the lower price of housing, reckon it will go up even in this turbulent market.

Grove Park Which area to choose  

We're undecided about whether to go for a proper terraced house here or a small flat just north of Bromley or even tinier studio in Beckenham. We know we will want a house for the family within 5 years but what is the best option for potential house price growth and safety/convenience? Any advice gladly welcomed

Grove Park Super location, short commute  

Can't say any more really. Glad we moved here when we did as prices going up.
1 thing I would change is more restaurants less take-outs but not far from Bromley/Beckenham/hither green etc.

Grove Park Go for it this is the next up and coming area in South london  

We moved here from crystal palace last year as it was too pricey there to buy local. It reminds me of Forest Hill 5 years ago, lots of regeneration and an incredible amount of houses being done up and flipped. Get in the area while it's still relatively cheap!

Grove Park Everything I look for in a buy to let  

Excellent train links, plenty of schools, medical facilities, well kept green spaces, gym options, restaurants close by, town centre within driving distance (Bromley), leafy streets. Couldn't be more perfect.

Grove Park I prefer going to Blackheath  

I know you can drive to Beckenham but have you been up to Blackheath? its less than 10 minute drive from grove park and gorgeous. If I could afford it I would live there, but have you seen the prices for a studio flat??!!?!?!?!! Ill settle for grove park and make the journey a few times a month for brunch which I can afford as have a puny grove park mortgage ;)

Grove Park Excellent location  

I love living here my only issue is that I own a couple of rental properties and because my tenants are young professionals (never get dss tenants or you'll have massive regrets) I always see them at the local trendy pub. Awkward sometimes but everyone is pretty friendly.

Grove Park Excellent for new family  

Houses are very reasonably priced for 2-3 bedrooms. We bought a small 2 bed and are extending attic and double extension. Loads of young professionals are doing the same!! Can't recommend enough plus you're right between loads of fancy areas so only way is up 😆

Grove Park Also superb value  

Recently purchased a house towards downham which has had significant regeneration and a total change in demographic recently. My aunt lived in this area so knew it well but the recent positive change and excellent value influenced my decision to buy here. Great opportunity to redevelop the old 1940s places which haven't been touched by their precious owners. Happy to be here!

Grove Park Look to downham now for value for money  

It's still sort of grove park but the area up downham way and running between there and burnt ash lane is excellent value and great quality 1930s housing. We've just bought two to flip butay live in one instead as it is an up and coming area I think house prices will continue to increase so I'm looking for a 7 year hold.

Grove Park Station regeneration  

Yes we looked at this area two years ago when starting to house hunt but recently the prices have dropped and you can see the council are pouring some money into the area. Now looks like a good time to buy, to the point we may go for a three bedroom instead of our original plan for a two bedroom.

Grove Park Value, one of the few areas of opportunity in South London  

Sold up out of crystal palace, took our profit and moved in to this area on the comparative cheap. Great feel, plenty of facilities (shops, gym, parks, station, buses) and close to Bromley for shopping. Only zone 4 for train. Full of surprises can't recommend enough.

Grove Park Agreed great location still affordable for young families  

Moved here 6 months ago, great regeneration around the station, we live downham side and you get excellent value for money Vs size of houses and gardens. These are classic 1930s houses before things started getting built really small!
Negative is lots of green spaces managed by phoenix Arizona hi sort out the social housing so are slow to make improvements but no big issue.
Proportionally less social housing compared to the rest of Lewisham from what I can tell and feels like a safe area, never had or seen any trouble. School options quite good.

Grove Park Hidden find, zone 4!  

Who knew this area existed. Between affluent areas it still has plenty of potential even though prices are starting to go up. A lot of development in the area. I'll be flipping my property and getting another one local to do the same.

Grove Park Agree! What a steal location wise  

On the up, good house prices and lots of investment both by the council and ppl renovating. I agree with previous poster, a few more restaurants instead of chicken shops would make a big difference to the area.
Wedged between stupidly expensive areas Id say you can't go wrong moving and buying here.

Grove Park As a mum I luv it  

Lots for the kids to do at liesure center and the schools are a good fit with my little ones. Winner of a nail salon opposite the station and I work out at the 24 hour gym. We get the bus to the glades for a bit of shopping when I need my fix. Takes like 10 mins

Grove Park Hahaha agreed!  

Totally would live in blackheath if I had the spare cash but like you I will settle for the 10 minute drive for my avo on toast in trade for the small mortgage. Cheers with organic almond milk late!

Grove Park Yes it is a good option for house price growth  

I also like downham which is a little better price wise, still plenty of opportunity to snap up a bargain for Reno and sell. We've done 5 in this area over the last 4 years and the change in demographic is incredible.

Grove Park Grove park progress  

Did you buy the three bed in Grove Park, which area? hard to decide if all are equally good. Closer to the station makes more sense as the train commute is short I don't want a long walk or bus to the station, buuut prices there are a bit higher.

Grove Park Station finished?  

Thinking of moving here as friends have been in the area for a few years. Station area has been uplifted but are they putting in a lift in the station itself? Stairs/ramp is a pain with my father in law's wheelchair.
Thanks!
