The gracious old naval town of Greenwich is sailing forward at full speed, with new homes sprouting up either side of the town centre, a Unesco World Heritage Site.

With its fabulous riverside setting and splendid park, it is a fine place to live — and cheaper than equivalent inner suburbs such as Highgate in the north or Richmond in the west, making it a family favourite.

New period-style townhouses, pictured, replace a derelict terrace and are part of a wider project that has seen a former Art Deco police section house transformed into a swish new hotel, all steered by novice developer Rona, Lady Delves Broughton, the first woman to become a Lloyd’s Name, and now in her seventies. Set over five storeys, the homes at Greenwich High Road have a well-conceived open-plan basement family space, with kitchen, opening on to a walled terrace. Above this are light-filled bedrooms. Energy-efficient and technically advanced, the homes inventively incorporate a concealed bin store at the front and parking at the rear. From £1.2 million.
