West Norwood is an understated, quiet residential area of South London with the attributes of its more well-known neighbours Clapham, Balham, and Streatham. A growing number of first-time buyers are giving the area a rejuvenated feel with street feasts, coffee shops and restaurants assembling near the National Rail station, which has direct connection to Victoria and central London. Cheviot Gardens offers newly built one and two bedroom apartments set within landscaped communal gardens in the heart of West Norwood, with homes exclusively available to over 55s with the Older Person’s Shared Ownership (OPSO) scheme, and the benefit of adjacent extra care facilities to retirees otherwise self-sufficient.

Whether you fancy afternoon tea, dancing, flower arranging or going for a swim, you will find plenty to do in West Norwood. Visit the Portico Gallery, a hub of activity, for tea dances, singing workshops, film afternoons and yoga, as well as art exhibitions and installations. Join your neighbours for flower arranging, line dancing, tai chi and other activities with the Norwood Pensioners' Group at the Old Library Centre.
