Life is full of surprises but many if them can be unwelcome. This usually occurs when we don't plan or research something properly first and so we're stuck paying the consequences. This can happen when moving home because if you don't know enough about the area you are relocating to it might have something you don't want and that is why you should research each London postcode area when moving here starting with SE.
The South Eastern postcode district is one of the region's oldest postcode areas and encompasses the Boroughs of Southwark, Lewisham and Greenwich, as well as parts of the Boroughs of Lambeth, Bexley and Bromley. It was created in 1857 alongside the other main postcode sectors and has changed much over time, mostly in 1917 when multiple smaller postcode areas were introduced. There are now twenty-eight different sections here, spanning SE1 to SE28, as well as the non-geographic SE1P that is used for direct marketing and PO boxes by different businesses. These new codes were introduced to improve mail delivery and street signs, as well as make travel easier.
SE3 is one of them and covers Blackheath, Kidbrooke and Westcombe Park, which are found within the Boroughs of Greenwich or Lewisham but all use the post town address of LONDON. Nearby areas include SE9, SE7, SE10, SE12, SE13 and SE18, which means that SE3 is nor far from Eltham, Charlton, Greenwich, Lee, Lewisham and more.
The house prices in the area are about average for the region with flats starting at approximately £228,000 for one bedroom and increasing for each additional room to about £1,083,000 for six bedrooms. A single bedroom house goes for around £207,000 and increase to the maximum of six rooms for roughly £1,888,000. Studio flats go for a about £168,000. There is a good variety of quality house types in the area that includes large Victorian and Edwardian homes, Thirties' villas with large gardens, fantastic mansions, Sixties' box houses, retirement homes, the private Cator Estate, tower blocks, Thirties semis, a seventies estate and more.
The SE3 area can easily cater to all of your needs as it is full of excellent facilities.

Notable residents from the area include comedic duo Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, other comedians Malcolm Hardee and Jim Davidson, television personality Jools Holland, goalkeeper Stephen Anderson, interior designer Lawrence Llewelyn Bowen and singer Sandie Shaw.
