Genteel, wealthy and absolutely desirable, Blackheath is one of the jewels of South London. Whilst many of the region's villages have preserved elements of their village character, Blackheath, shielded by the Heath, by Greenwich Park, and by the A2 and A102(M), is almost completely a distinct village entity.
Of course this is partly down to its wealth. Blackheath is famously well-heeled and its social and property characteristics all devolve from this central fact. Its geographical isolation is notional - it is as close to Lewisham and Deptford in real terms as it is to its equally genteel neighbour Greenwich - but none the less strong for all that.
Blackheath property is led by its stunning Victorian and Edwardian properties, although there are also some excellent Georgian terraces including a couple of truly beautiful mansion blocks. The standard of Blackheath's homes is uniformly high - all are likely to be fitted to a very high standard, and well decorated. There are plenty of apartments largely retrofitted from pre-existing houses, although again, fronting the Heath, there are some apartment blocks offering wonderful views of one of the highest spots in London. One of the jewels of Blackheath is the Cator Estate, a gated estate on which sit some of the best houses in the village, large detached family homes sitting in lovely grounds and gardens. Prices in Blackheath are high, as befits one of the most desirable places in South London.
Living in Blackheath is a wealth of choice - or the choice of wealth, as you like it. There are a large number of restaurants and cafes, and the shopping is - though perhaps limited - top of the range, with some famous brands sitting alongside local jewellers and exclusive chains. An excellent arts centre provides theatre and music, and Blackheath is home to one of the prettiest and most distinctive churches in London. Sitting right next to not one but two of the best open spaces in London (both Blackheath itself and Greenwich Park are right next door) Blackheath's only problem is a small amount of traffic congestion at rush hours (particularly during school term time). If that doesn't bother you, then Blackheath is without doubt one of the most pleasant addresses in London.
