Brockley real estate guide & listings for sale
Brockley is reasonably quiet overall, as there are generally low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near Highway 402, Highway 401 or the railway line.
Getting around by car is especially convenient in Brockley. Many properties for sale are a reasonably short drive from the nearest highway, such as Highway 402, and it is very easy to access a place to park. On the other hand, Brockley is not very transit friendly. Travelling on foot is not very practical for house buyers in Brockley as many daily needs are very difficult to meet by walking.
Single detached homes are the most common housing type, representing around 55% of buildings in Brockley, but large apartment buildings and townhouses are also present in the housing stock. This part of the city also has a good selection of unit sizes - it is quite easy to find properties ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Around three quarters of the population of this neighbourhood own their home and renters make up the remainder. This neighbourhood experienced its most significant construction boom between 1960 and 1980, so most of the available housing stock is from this time period.
A portion of residents in this part of London may be able to do grocery shopping on foot, while others will have to rely on another means of transportation. A limited number of restaurants are available in Brockley as well. When it comes to education, it can be very difficult to walk to high schools and primary schools from homes for sale in this neighbourhood.
