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 have been a private landlord for 15 years and always let and managed the property myself. 5 years ago we moved away from London so that letting the property became quite difficult with expensive trips to and from London for viewings etc. I had used Gumtree with decreasing success. I received an email from Misty Dowson regarding a lettings promotion Beresford ResidentialÂ were running. The flat went on the market at the beginning of December last year. BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ were instructed at the end of February as the flat had been vacant for 3 months and they had found tenants by the second week of March. BeresfordResidentialÂ achieved a rental increaseÂ of 17.5% andÂ I was absolutely thrilled and extremely impressed by Misty's professional, efficient and expedient service. Once the let had been agreed, Karl Reynolds took over where Misty had left off. The join was seamless and Karl, like Misty, showed the same excellent level of service. In fact, he went beyond his remit dealing with a management issue that was not covered under the agreement that I had with them taking the standard of service to a whole new level. I would not hesitate to recommend BeresfordÂ ResidentialÂ 100% to any landlords looking to take the hassle out of letting and despite 15 years of promising never to pay an agent to let my property, feel pretty confident that when the time comes to relet the flat I will be instructing them again. 5/5 Stars"
