New look South Croydon branch busy with upsurge of interest in popular Restaurant Quarter area

South Croydon – home to the famous Restaurant Quarter and the annual Croydon Food Festival – is flavour of the moment with house buyers.

Streets Ahead, who’ve just completely refurbished their local Selsdon Road branch, say there’s been a real upsurge in inquiries from first time buyers to families hungry to move into the area.



And Director Gary O’Hare believes it’s the mix of property types and styles, along with South Croydon’s vibrant, ready-made community, which is making the leafy suburb so popular.

He commented: “All of Croydon is booming at the moment, particularly with Westfield coming to the area. But we’ve noticed a real upsurge in interest in South Croydon.

“The area has got a good mix of great properties, excellent schools and the famous Southend Restaurant Quarter, with its hugely popular Croydon Food Festival, on the doorstep. It is definitely one to watch.”



Mr O’Hare says Croydon’s status as ‘London’s property hotspot’ – which saw average prices increase between 12% and 16% in 2015 – is likely to continue in 2016 and that areas like South Croydon represent real value for money at the moment.

Streets Ahead new South Croydon branch manager Jon Claustres added: “The area has a real buzz about it. And the lettings market is also very buoyant.”

“We aim to provide client a first class service and unmatched local knowledge and experience.”

The postal district of South Croydon includes Sanderstead, Selsdon, parts of Addington, Croham Valley and Monks Hill.  Aside from some of south London’s top restaurants, include the Michelin-starred Albert’s Table, South Croydon has a hugely successful Food Festival which this year will be held in Southend on 16th June.

The area also boasts the oldest property in Croydon, the historic half-timbered 46 Southend, which dates from the 16th century and is now a well-known music shop. South Croydon also features many excellent schools including the Whitgift School which is rated one of the best in the country.
