Hot homes: Kennington and Oval

With the Northern line Tube extension from Kennington to Battersea Power station due to be up and running by 2018, this well-connected inner-city area with good-value homes is one to watch.
Kennington and Oval are back in the international spotlight from Friday as the world's top cricketing nations compete in one-day matches during the ICC Champion's Trophy - and again during this summer's highly anticipated 2013 Ashes series between England and Australia.

Cricket fans and property hunters will descend on this south-of-the-river area in their thousands. Stepping beyond the famous cricket ground, buyers will discover hidden tree-lined streets of grand Victorian homes, Georgian cottages and quiet garden squares, moments from the Thames and the scenic South Bank.

Justin Bhoday, Sales Manager at Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward’s Kennington branch says: “Oval tends to be popular among buyers because it offers great transport links, convenience to the City and a good neighbourhood atmosphere."

With the Northern line Tube extension from Kennington to Battersea Power station due to be up and running by 2018, this is a well-connected Zone 1 area to watch.

A perfect triangle of underground stations including Oval, Kennington and Stockwell makes it an ideal location for commuters. The current redevelopment of the neighbouring Battersea Nine Elms area is having a big impact on the area too, says Bhoday.”

We take a property tour of these inner-city neighbourhoods to discover homes for first-time buyers, City professionals, families and buy-to-let investors.
