Camberwell railway station is set to reopen as more new homes appear on the SE5 horizon

A new station and a town centre park are set to transform this up-and-coming part of south-east London, with new homes priced from £405,000.

Camberwell’s quest for a Tube station appears to have failed with news that Transport for London’s preferred route for the Bakerloo line extension from Elephant and Castle to Lewisham is via Old Kent Road.

However, TfL plans to reopen old Camberwell railway station, while Denmark Hill station, on the border with Dulwich, will offer quick commutes to the new Farringdon Crossrail station opening in 2018.

There are other area improvements, too, especially around Camberwell Green. The open space and encircling streets have been upgraded, and new homes have followed overlooking what is a new town centre park.

Camberwell on the Green, one of these schemes, has 92 flats from £405,000. Call estate agent Marsh & Parsons on 020 7638 4830.

Camberwell Fields, with 279 homes, is another. From £415,000. Call Notting Hill housing association on 020 8357 5222.

Housing charity Peabody is set to launch 66 flats in Camberwell Road.

Away from the Green, a new terrace in Grove Lane has duplex flats up to 2,236sq ft, bigger than most houses on the street, from £1,495,950, including a garage.

And Triangle Court, built on the site of an old snooker hall, has two-bedroom flats priced from £500,000. Call Caddington Blue on 020 7407 6033.
