Described as a prime choice for first time buyers and retired couples alike, this area is a quiet haven on the outer reaches of London’s South Eastern Boroughs. With rows upon rows of tree lined streets and leafy open grounds, you may feel a little more Kent bound than London here but that doesn’t mean you’re too far away. Those looking for shared ownership in Bexley benefit from being just 13 miles from the hubbub of the city, or a speedy train journey. Georgian manors and wildflower decorated parks create a wonderful contrast that will have you appreciating both sides of life.
Settling down in Sidcup
On the borderline between Kent’s open countryside and London’s buzzing hub, Sidcup is a cheerful region that has you soaking in views of lush greens and rolling meadows while on the way home from a shopping trip in the centre. Just a 22 minute train ride from London Bridge and direct access to the M25, connections are quick, clean and clear cut in Sidcup whether you’re hopping down to the Kent coastline or into the electric night life of Soho. With its proximity to Dartford you’re also not too far from the Eurostar, so if lunching in pall mall doesn’t seem quite as bougie as Paris, not to worry! Hop on at Ebbsfleet International and you could be there for baguettes by the afternoon.
An independent pop of colour
What Bexley and Sidcup might not deliver on wild night-outs, it definitely makes up for in its range of artisan markets, cosy boutiques and selection of independent cafes and restaurants. If there’s anything this community really roots for, it’s their independent businesses and smaller local suppliers. Sprinkled in Farmers markets and teeming with fresh local produce, teetering the edge of the Kent Hills certainly becomes a unique gift here, especially when it comes to tea time. Butchers, Bakers (and not so many candle-stick makers) are rife here. The tight-knit community in Bexley value the real sense of authenticity you get here, not only in the fresh produce and local businesses but the close relationships and family feeling this borough embodies.
So if you feel properties for sale in Sidcup could be ticking the boxes, a shared ownership home in nearby Langley Square may just be your answer. Situated on the tranquil mill pond, this development provides spacious, high spec home and a fresh new look at the future. While you may enjoy the village life that awaits on the outside, Langley Square will ensure you benefit from the best of modern living with contemporary open plan layout and top quality appliances on the inside. If it’s time for you to settle down somewhere with a little less stress and a little more rest then the borough of Bexley is the perfect place to ensure a softer, steadier side to life.
