Bromley 'Old Town'

As we are currently marketing a property in this popular area it seemed fitting to share a little bit more information about this micro market!

Bromley 'Old Town' is commonly known as the area between Bromley North Station and Plaistow Lane, on the south side of the railway line. Some of the key roads you may have heard of; Palace Road, Palace Grove, Freelands Road, Rodway Road, Hawes Road etc. 

The housing stock is predominantly made up of Victorian & Edwardian properties with a healthy mix of newer developments. A particularly popular example of which is The Old Courtyard, a collection of Grade II listed warehouses converted to modern apartments.

One of the key draws to the area is the five unique public houses, all situated within a quarter of a mile of each other, one of which dates back to 1873:

The Crown and Anchor - Park Road

Anglesey Arms - Palace Road

The White Horse - Palace Road

The Red Lion - North Road

The Freelands Tavern - Freelands Road

If that wasn't enough, Bromley Town Centre is just a short walk away and provides plenty of eating & drinking options. 

The public transport links are also excellent, Bromley North Station offers a link service via Grove Park and is located on the edge of the area. From Freelands Road it is under half a mile whilst Bromley South Station offers fast services to London Victoria and normal services to many other London Terminals. From Freelands Road it is under a mile.

Combine the local charm, sense of community and excellent transport links and you have a sought after popular area where in our opinion, properties don't often struggle to sell. Over the years we have sold many homes in this micro market from New to Victorian, we know it well and are happy to share our advice.

If you want to discuss a move, are curious as to the value of your property or want to discuss the area in more detail get in touch.
