There are a number of things we look for when moving home. We want a good house, a nice area, an excellent deal and an easy move. Well youíre in luck because all these things can be found here. The good home can be found in the South-Eastern postcode district, a. SE, which contains many great homes. These could be within the Boroughs of Southwark, Greenwich and Lewisham, or in a part of the Boroughs of Lambeth, Bromley and Bexley.
The original postcode areas in London were developed in 1858 and have changed over time. In 1968 SE amalgamated parts of the S region when it was disassembled. The next big alteration began in 1917 when the area, as well as all others in London, had sections created within them in order to improve post delivery, street signs and navigation. At the time of writing, there are thirty of these within SE. Twenty-eight of them (SE1 to SE28) are traditional postcodes while the other two (SE1P and SE99) are actually non-geographic postcodes. These are not used for addresses but instead are utilised by businesses for direct marketing and PO Boxes. These are based in SE1 to SE22 however.
The Brockley district is what makes up SE4, and it contains Brockley and Honor Oak, as well as parts of Ladywell and Crofton Park. These all fall within the Borough of Lewisham and have the post town address of LONDON. SE4 is bordered by the SE6, SE13, SE14, SE15, SE22 and SE23 postcode districts meaning that Catford, Lewisham, Peckham, Dulwich and Forest Oak are all close by. House prices are around average when compared to the rest of London. Flats start at roughly £189,600 for a single bedroom and increase to £244,800 for two bedrooms, £274,700 for three bedrooms and up to around £349,800 for four bedrooms. Houses begin at approximately £212,900 for one bedroom and grow upwards to £291,800, £464,600 and £1,022,300 for two, three and six bedrooms respectively. Studio apartments are obviously the cheapest option with them costing in the region of £176,500.
