Honor Oak Information

Area

Approximately 6 miles from central London, Honor Oak Park is a residential area within the Bourough of Lewisham. It benefits from great transport to central London and Canary Wharf (via mainline servcies and the London Overground respectively). It is thought to be named after an event in 1602 when Elizabeth I picnicked with Sir Richard Bulkeley under an oak tree at the summit of the Hill. The tree came to be known as the Oak of Honor and the area as One Tree Hill.

The high street is home to several independently-owned shops including restaurants, bars, cafes, and a deli. It is often described as having a 'village' like feel. The Nature Reserve along Devonshire Rd provides a little bit of the countryside in this part of southeast London.

Property types

The area contains converted period flats, 1920s and 1930s houses to the north along roads such as Parbury Rd and Tatnell Rd, and Edwardian houses to the south along roads such as Garthorne Rd and Bovill Rd. In general, you'll find larger houses in the hilly Horniman area, some of which command amazing views of central London. Other notable roads are Lowther Hill, Duncombe Hill and Brockley Park, some of which have direct access to a private residents' only park.

The area also contains timber-framed houses constructed using the 'Segal Method', a system of design pioneered by the celebrated Swiss architect Walter Sega.
