Lindal road housing goes on sale

The housing built on the former stone mason's yard in Lindal Road, Crofton Park, is now on the market. The developers have squeezed eight decent family homes on to the site next to the railway track and are now selling them for an eye-watering £875,000.

Thanks to Joe and Alastair.

What effect will this have on local house prices?

Guest said...

It actually starts at £705k for a 1313sq ft size detached house.

Honest houses for honest people

Hugh said...

My concern is hard working families.

Read it. It isn't.

Are you a tedious bellend with a vague message or just a tedious bellend?

Ghee Zer said...

Honest hard working familes.
They get all the breaks.

Mr Perspective said...

These houses are so close to the station you couldn't stand far enough back to take a picture like that.

Shed said...

Yeah it's awful that lots of people want to live here now. Brockley was so much better and more fairly priced for hard working families when it was a total dump

Joe said...

Nick - the prices do seem very high at first glance, however, at £537/ft, these properties are actually fairly on-market

Guest said...

There are 2 separate prices one £705k whilst the other is £875k can anyone enlighten me on the difference of property spec between the two as the cheaper one is a 3-4 bedroom at a 1313 sq ft and the other is a 4 bed with no floor plan or sq ft measurement. Now these properties aren't even finished yet but if marketed up by £170k before release the market is properly pick a figure out of the sky,perhaps the £170k mark up is closer to the property value.

Guest said...

I assume the higher price is for the 4 bed house and £705k is for the 3 bed house. I've seen the floorplans for the 4 bed house on Lewisham council planning site. Just search for Lindal Road.

Joe said...

Not only are they mega pricey compared to other Brockley houses, but despite being described as three and four bedroom houses, that's being somewhat disingenuous as this includes a room downstairs which could be used as a bedroom.

If they are overpriced then no one will buy them, otherwise...

terrencetrentderby said...

Will be an ease on supply so probably negative overall. One of many reasons why Brockley NIMBYS object to new homes in the area, although they normally claim other barely guised objections like parking.

JammyJim said...

Are these about 2 metres from the tracks? Don't fancy shelling out £705k + for vibrations and train noises.

Guest said...

AFAIK, the 3 bed house includes a separate room downstairs which can be used as an office or bedroom. I would love to have a separate bedroom downstairs for when my old parents visit, which doubles as an office when they aren't. You don't have to use it as a bedroom if you don't want to.


Can't afford it tho.

I give it about six weeks before the new residents start moaning to Thameslink about the train announcements being too loud or the platform lights too bright. Mind you trains are so infrequent outside the peaks that vibration won't be a major issue.

bobblekin said...

Rental then social within a year.

Guest said...

The problem with vibration aren't the normal trains, which slows down on approach, but the numerous freight trains that uses the line!

Headhunter said...

Yes, I think that would be a problem. Even from my flat on Manor Ave I can hear freight trains in the evening/night sometimes, running along the line towards Nunhead etc and that's from 100m+ away and down an embankment

Don donato said...

I live in Marnock Road. The freight trains average about 1 a month...bearable.

Steve said...

People moaning about noise and other problems for a home they dont live in or even have anything to do with. Amazing!!
