Spotlight on: Kidbrooke Square

In the Royal Borough of Greenwich, Kidbrooke is emerging as southeast London’s latest gem.  With plenty of green space, places to grab a bite to eat, and a vibrant community, Kidbrooke offers the best of local living within one of the city’s most interesting boroughs.  

A central piece of this new neighbourhood is Kidbrooke Square, located right next to Kidbrooke Station.  Here Notting Hill Genesis is building 619 new homes, including a stunning collection of one-, two-and three-bedroom apartments available to buy through Shared Ownership, set around a new village square, with café and shops planned for later stages.

From the development, residents can walk, cycle or take the bus and explore all that the wider area has to offer, from nearby historic Greenwich to whimsical Blackheath Village. 

An area with history

Notable for its royal connections and maritime history, the Royal Borough of Greenwich has so much to offer, from science to seafaring, and even a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just half an hour away by bus, take a stroll round the grounds of Maritime Greenwich and admire the iconic work of London’s favourite architect, Sir Christopher Wren.  Not far up the hill is the Royal Observatory, home to the Meridian Line and the start of time itself!  From there, you can head down to the Cutty Sark and experience first-hand what was once the fastest ship in the world.

Quaint Blackheath Village is another hidden jewel, with a local high street complete with a butcher, greengrocer and florist.  Places to visit include Ranger’s House, a filming location featured in popular Netflix show Bridgerton now housing an art collection, and the Pagoda House, a Grade II*-listed building in one of the area’s most affluent neighbourhoods.

Places to eat and things to do in Kidbrooke

Closer to home at Kidbrooke, there’s no shortage of spots to grab a bite to eat or drink nearby.  Enjoy The Depot, a neighbourhood local and beloved gastropub that serves brunch, lunch and dinner, and even has a co-working space inside.  On the other side of Cator Park, Veganise It bakery is perfect for plant lovers, selling a wide range of vegan baked goods, while the Kidbrooke Village Farmers’ Market is on the first Saturday of each month.  Peglar Square is also often home to food trucks serving everything from fish and chips to authentic Nepalese food.

When it comes to nightlife, residents can choose to take a quick train into the city or stick to the south east London area.  In Greenwich, Time Out magazine recently named event space Woolwich Works as ‘London’s best new culture spot’, while nearby Lee High Road is studded with pubs, bars and restaurants. 

Nature on the doorstep

In Kidbrooke, residents are never far from green, open space.  Cator Park, winner of the David Attenborough Award for biodiversity, is just a four-minute walk from Kidbrooke Square, while beyond it, Sutcliffe Park is home to grassland, meadows and wetlands.  Blackheath Common and Greenwich Park are also a short cycle away, making it easy to workout, read a book, or take your dog for a walk.

Cator Park is located just a few minutes walk from our homes at Kidbrooke Square.

For more adventurous residents, why not take part in the Thames Path parkrun in Woolwich?  It’s free, and takes you along the bank of the Thames before heading uphill into the charming Gallion’s Park.  If exercising inside is more your style, local boxing club Royal Resistance offers classes and even sports recovery sessions.  There’s also nearby fitness centres David Lloyd and Pure Gym.

Quick connections to the rest of London

While the Royal Borough of Greenwich has everything you need, the rest of the city is within easy reach thanks to convenient transport options.  Residents are next to Kidbrooke station, with trains to London Bridge taking just 16 minutes or to Waterloo East in 19 minutes.  The DLR is also two stops away in Lewisham, linking you to Charing Cross, Cannon Street and Canary Wharf.

Through Shared Ownership, buyers part own and part rent their home by purchasing a percentage share of the property, and paying rent on the remainder.  This share can then be increased over time, allowing buyers to own a property for a fraction of the price they would be required to pay if they were to purchase outright.

One-bedroom apartments at Kidbrooke Square start from £93,125 for a 25 per cent share, with two-bedrooms from £112,500 and three-bedrooms from £158,750.
