Bellway - Elmington Green, SE5
Welcome to Elmington Green
Elmington Green is a contemporary development of new homes in Camberwell, offered in a variety of styles to suit families, first-time buyers, investors and professionals commuting to central London.
This collection of 1,2 and 3-bedroom apartments, and 3 and 4-bedroom houses, incorporates modern design features, such as open-plan living spaces, en suite bathrooms and integrated kitchen appliances. Many apartments have balconies, all of the houses have gardens and some have roof gardens; in addition the development includes areas of open space for the enjoyment of residents.
Located less than four miles from Charing Cross, Camberwell is a suburb that is growing in popularity. Like Shoreditch and Dalston before it, the area is attracting buyers drawn not only by its proximity to central London, but by its artistic environment – Camberwell College of Arts, the South London Gallery, the Camberwell Arts Festival and numerous artists’ studios at the vanguard.
For families, this part of London is home to a number of well-regarded schools, such as Oliver Goldsmith Primary School, Crawford Primary School and Ark All Saints Academy. In addition to Camberwell College of Arts – part of the University of the Arts London – the capital’s many other universities can be easily reached by public transport.
Camberwell Green provides a focal point for the community, with a variety of bars, restaurants, cafés and shops situated close to it on Camberwell Church Street, as well as along Camberwell Road and Denmark Hill. The green is currently undergoing renovation to enhance and improve the space for residents, with works due for completion in 2016.
Burgess Park, less than a mile from Elmington Green, is a venue for local events such as the Camberwell Fair, and offers a host of facilities including play areas, a fishing lake, gardens, cycle track, running trails, tennis courts and sports pitches. Tennis courts and a play area can also be found at Brunswick Park, a few minutes walk from the development, while over the border in Lambeth, Ruskin Park at Denmark Hill, has an athletics track, sports courts and pitches, flower gardens, wildlife ponds and a bandstand used for outdoor concerts.
With central London being so close, residents of these new homes in Camberwell are ideally placed to benefit from the wealth of amenities it offers. Myriad restaurants, bars, theatres, concert venues and shopping malls are just a short journey across the Thames in Covent Garden, Soho, the City, Westminster, Mayfair and more, all easily accessible by public transport.
Frequent bus services operate locally and across London and the closest tube stop is Oval, on the Northern Line.
