Although Norbury shares the SW16 postcode with Streatham, it falls mainly under the London Borough of Croydon with a small area lying in the London Borough of Merton. Norbury offers good transport links and spacious properties, many of which have large gardens and some with garages. It is currently benefiting from increased interest due to rising prices in neighbouring Streatham. A surprisingly green, calm and community-minded suburb, Norbury is ideal for first-time buyers and families.
A wide range of property is available in Norbury. Good quality late Victorian terraces and semi-detached houses are plentiful; you will also find spacious flats, some 1920s properties and a few Edwardian period houses. The Green Lane area is one of the most popular parts of Norbury offering wide tree-lined roads and attractive homes with gardens and garages. The Scott’s Estate around Dunbar Avenue, Kilmartin Avenue and Strathyre Avenue offers mainly terraced housing with large gardens that are popular with families. If you are looking for flats, these are most easily found in central Norbury. The area surrounding Baldry Gardens and Fontaine Road remains the most exclusive where it is possible to find grand 5 bedroom semi-detached houses.
Norbury is a surprisingly green suburb. The popular Norbury Park provides a large and pleasant open space perfect for dog walking, jogging, or outdoor games. Norbury Hall Park, just off Craignish Avenue, boasts an original manor house, ornamental gardens and lawns. Both parks also offer tennis courts.
The main shopping area in Norbury is located along the London Road. A mix of local convenience stores and independent retailers can be found including florists, dry cleaners and newsagents. For the weekly shop, there are two supermarkets within easy reach, Tesco’s on Thornton Heath High Street and Sainsbury’s in Streatham.
Norbury has a variety of restaurants that are mainly found on the London Road. Mirch Masala is a popular curry house and Cappadocia is a Turkish restaurant that serves up unique and authentic dishes. Local pubs include The Moon Under Water, a family friendly JD Weatherspoon’s establishment, and The Norbury & Edge bar and nightclub.
Norbury is well connected in terms of transport links. It has its own train station that provides regular service into Victoria and London Bridge stations in less than 30 minutes.
Getting around by bus is made easy with numerous bus routes. The 109, 50 and 255 all run in the area and provide regular buses to Streatham, Brixton, Clapham Common and Croydon. A bus into Croydon Town Centre takes just 20 minutes.
For motorists, the A23 runs through Norbury providing quick and easy access in and out of London.

"I used Beresford Residential to purchase and then let and manage my property. From the initial contact to arrange a viewing to completion, I found the service good. They were easily contactable and kept me informed of progress, and when problems enviably arose they were helpful in trying to resolve them. On completion of the purchase and once I was ready to let the flat they found tenants within a couple of days and everything has gone smoothly."
