Residents can benefit from nearby shops, cafés and restaurants, a school, health centre, plus a new transport interchange at Kidbrooke station, offering a 15-minute commute to London Bridge.
It is within a surprisingly green setting, bordered by Sutcliffe Park in Eltham Road, with a lake and wetlands, while newly landscaped areas across the 276-acre estate include pedestrian routes and cycleways.
Flats and townhouses with roof terraces overlook this green expanse, and now the result of the £1 billion regeneration project is in full view as home buyers look at this onceblighted district with fresh eyes.
Eventually, there will be 4,000 homes and a community of more than 10,000 people living here.
Homes have smart, space-efficient, low-energy interiors, while The Square, the latest phase, has apartments ranging up to 1,353sq ft in size, bigger than many new-build properties.
Prices from £345,000. Three-bedroom houses cost £765,000. Call 020 8150 5151.
