Dulwich Village is unique. It retains the feel of an unspoilt English Village but is only four miles from Central London. The Dulwich Estate Governors have protected the area from over development for 400 years resulting in a fantastic selection of high quality and well maintained properties and a feeling of space rarely found in London.
The Village has a 72 acre park at its centre and an excellent selection of private and state schools.
It also boasts the oldest art gallery in Britain, The Dulwich Picture Gallery, and a selection of great restaurants and shops that add to the village atmosphere.
A good selection of family homes from the magnificent detached houses that run through the village from North Dulwich station to Dulwich College to the wonderful Victorian and Edwardian properties that dominate the village and its immediate surroundings. A few delightful ‘rose cottages’ can be found discreetly tucked away in the heart as can a number of idyllic 1920’s/30’s houses with their abundance of light and space. Many properties have been renovated and extended to create fabulous contemporary homes.
Trains take approximately 10 minutes from all local stations into London Bridge and/or Victoria. Thameslink is available from Herne Hill going to the city, Brighton, Gatwick etc
