Property in Crystal Palace
Architecturally diverse and full of individuality, Crystal Palace is an oasis of culture. A melting pot of artists, writers and musicians are drawn to these breezy hills surrounding the famous park in the centre. Acres of parkland contain an amphitheatre, small farm, lakes, children’s play areas and a model dinosaur park.
From affordable 1950’s 3 bedders to staggering Victorian townies, the area’s got something for everyone. Many huge homes have been divvied into ample flats, while council-built properties heading out from Central Hill give buyers and tenants more for their money. Some incredible homes can be found in the area, including architecturally elite properties designed in the 1960’s through to the present day.
Crystal Palace schools
The area is split by 4 boroughs, Bromley, Croydon, Lambeth and Lewisham. Schools include the exemplary Rockmount, Kingswood and Paxton Primary schools. All Saint’s Church of England, James Dixon and the new Elm Wood Primary are also very good. One of the country’s top performing secondary schools is found on Maberley Road—Harris City Academy. St Joseph’s College, Virgo Fedelis and Sydenham Girl’s are all good secondary options.
SE19 shopping and leisure
Crammed with independent outlets, SE19 has antique markets, vintage boutiques plus art and craft studios galore.
The restaurants and bars are worth a visit in themselves (try Tamnag Thai, Joanna’s, Dolmali, Black Sheep and the Alma to start with, you’ll find plenty more). A good Sainsbury’s, garden centre, bookshop, shoe shop and various gift and furniture stores are all central.
Public transport from Crystal Palace
Find the station in Crystal Palace Park, connecting commuters to London Bridge, Victoria and Norwood Junction plus tube links into the City and east London (Canada Water, Whitechapel, Shoreditch, Hoxton, Dalston Junction and Highbury & Islington). There’s a bus terminal beside the park too, with around-the-clock services going into and across London.
