About Conran Estates

Conran Estates Eltham office is located within the popular residential area of Eltham on Well Hall Road situated between Kidbrooke and Mottingham. This highly popular South-East London area offers a variety of properties for sale and to let. Eltham has existed as a settlement since the Saxon times. Today Eltham is part of the Royal Borough of Greenwich and the recent celebrations to the rename of Greenwich Borough with Royal Credentials bears heavily on Eltham historic contribution to the accolade. It is still home to the Royal Palace where King Henry VIII spent his childhood. The remains of the palace were turned into a luxurious art deco home by the Courtold family in 1930s. Close to the palace was the medieval estate of Well Hall, which was also moated. It was here in the 16th Century that William Roper lived with his wife Margaret, the daughter of Sir Thomas Moore. The coming of the railway in 1886 gave the crown the opportunity capitalize on some of its assets by allowing builders to develop high quality houses. The Village street adjacent to the palace and the surrounding land remained rural until Archibald Corbett bought Eltham Park and developed it with well-built suburban housing between 1900 and 1914 called The Corbett's Estate. The opening of the two railway lines through Eltham, and the construction of Shooters Hill by-pass (Rochester Way) were the main stimuli for further private building in the inter-war years. In 1915 the government built the attractive Progress Estates to accommodate the First World War munition workers. Now these very first time buyers family homes are known as the progress conservation area .The housing boom of the 1930's and 1950's expanded Eltham, and now there are many tree lined roads of popular bay fronted houses. Eltham is a pleasant green town, with a variety of open spaces, woods and fields, including the historic woodlands of Oxleas, Castle and Jack Woods.
