Foxborough Gardens flat smashes the million pound barrier

Brockley's fashionable Foxborough Gardens has shaken-off the recessionary gloom that has afflicted the rest of the UK property market, as a one-bed maisonette has been put on the market for £1.4m. The asking price recalls the infamous Knightsbridge Broom cupboard deal of 2007, although the high-spec description by agents OakEstates does boast its own front door.

Property experts have long-forecast that Brockley's micromarket would outperform the rest of the capital, but the rapid rises have left some concerned that young buyers trying to get on the first rung of the ladder will be forced out of the area.

The vendors are understood to have received a cash offer from Hugh.
