The lack of a Tube station kept Camberwell under the radar. But with the arrival of the Overground the secret of this pleasant inner suburb, four miles from Charing Cross, is out.
Denmark Hill train station is now a stop on the Surrey Quays to Clapham Junction spur of the East London line, providing quicker hops to Docklands, Victoria, London Bridge and Blackfriars. It also has direct rail services to Farringdon, poised to become a mega transport hub once Crossrail is up and running in 2018.
The duplex and triplex apartments have Scandinavian-inspired design, patio gardens and roof terraces
A boutique scheme of eight duplex and triplex apartments in Windsor Walk raises the bar for new builds in the area. The project is the debut development of City Square, refurbishment specialists whose back catalogue includes fit-outs for Manhattan Loft Corporation.
The contemporary architecture dovetails well with nearby heritage buildings, the Scandinavian-style interiors are light and clean, there are patio gardens and roof terraces, and completion is due in summer. From £379,950. Call 020 7117 6985.
