Charlton: Rent a property in a London village

Charlton: Rent a property in a London villageBackground

Charlton could be an ideal area to rent a property in London if you want to live in a vibrant area which is in close proximity of the capital while still retaining a community feel.

Located in South-East London and part of the borough of Greenwich, the heart of SE7 is Charlton Village with its hillside location and views across the Thames. The area is home to Charlton Athletic Football Club and four parks, and is flanked by Greenwich, Blackheath, Kidbrook, Plumstead and Woolwich.

Property

property to rent in Charlton comes in all shapes and sizes, meaning the market appeals to everyone from single, young professionals to larger families or even house sharers. From Victorian houses to new builds, property to rent in Charlton is a real mixed bag.

Monthly rent for a studio flat in Charlton costs around the £600 mark, while there are some decent three-bedroom houses available to rent for around £1,200 a month.

Such rental prices for property in Charlton make the area particularly attractive when compared to neighbouring Greenwich and the rest of London. For those who want to live in SE7 but cannot afford to buy or prefer not to, renting a property in Charlton might make much more sense. Since January this year the average cost of a property in Charlton increased from £255,575 to £261,359 in March. Such price tags could mean more people choose to go for renting rather than buying a property in Charlton.

Charlton's close proximity to the university in Greenwich means the area is also ideal for students looking to rent a property in London.

Transport

The area is well-served by transport links both into the city and to outer London and beyond. The nearest Tube station is North Greenwich on the Jubilee line, while those commuting from property in Charlton can choose between two Docklands Light Railway stations - Woolwich Arsenal and Greenwich Cutty Sark. Charlton Church Lane is where you will find the local railway station with frequent services which take 15 minutes to London Bridge.

Drivers into London can easily access the A2 to Central London and Kent or use the Blackwall Tunnel to reach Tower Hamlets. London City Airport is the closest hub to property in Charlton, with Gatwick about 30 miles south via the M23.

Amenities

Charlton village has a good mix of leisure activities as well as shops, pubs and restaurants. The usual services such as hairdressers and dentists are on hand for those who live in property in Charlton, but excellent transport links mean areas such as Greenwich are within easy reach.

Art lovers will be able to make the best use of Greenwich's two theatres and arthouse cinema, while those interested in history – and the obscure – can visit the Royal Observatory, World Heritage Site Maritime Greenwich and the Fan Museum, home to 4,000 fans.

Families renting properties in Charlton have a choice of six local primary schools. There is also Charlton School for older students and nearby University of Greenwich to continue education.

And then there is the prospect of the 2012 London Olympic Games, with the area playing host to gymnastics and equestrian events and welcoming scores of visitors from all over the world during the Games.
