Deptford has been named the capital’s hippest postcode by London Evening Standard Homes & Property and City A.M. Hot Property, overtaking popular rivals such as Dalston, Hackney and Shoreditch.

Describing the Zone 2 location as “raw” and “artistic”, the Evening Standard captures the unique character of Deptford as “a creative vibe that ripples out from Goldmiths College”, and the area is now seeing a resurgence among first time buyers and young professionals.

The Timberyard Deptford is highlighted as one of the developments leading this regeneration, delivering more than 1,000 homes, across six micro-neighbourhoods as well as new squares, parks and retail and commercial space.

Noted as one of London’s rare, underdeveloped waterfront locations, buyers are looking to capitalise on Deptford’s unique offering with an abundance of parks on their doorstep, not to mention the buzzing high street, with plenty of new cafes and pop ups to complement its much-loved street market.

Both titles highlight the area’s “enviably quick transport connections to central London” as well as the area’s affordable zone two house prices – acting as a significant draw card.

Deptford is not only a popular residential destination but is also place for the next generation of creative, entrepreneurial talent, with new office and retail space popping up throughout the area.
