Abbey Wood, named after the ancient woodlands that surround the remains of the Lesnes Abbey founded in 1178 boasts one of the lowest average house prices in London. The commencement of the Crossrail project (in 2013) has resulted in a dramatic increase in demand for properties in this area and properties are snapped up particularly quickly regardless of the market.

Abbey Wood is extremely popular amongst first time buyers, investors, commuters, families and tenants, with the Co-op estate being one of the most sought after areas in Abbey Wood.

Abbey Wood is split in half by the current railway line, with properties south of the railway line consisting of a mix of Victorian and 1930's style homes and those on north side being ex-local authority 1950's style homes. Thamesmead is a mix of 1970's to more, new modern homes.

Properties located close to local amenities and the railway station are in especially high demand. Currently a two bedroom house for sale in Abbey Wood will cost you from £300,000 up to £380,000. A three to four bedroom family home in Abbey Wood situated on the Co-op estate can range from £320,000 to £450,000.

Rental properties in Abbey Wood and Thamesmead start from £800pcm for a one bedroom flat, rising to £1000pcm for a two bedroom flat. Prices for a two, three or four bedroom home average from £1100pcm up to £1500pcm.

As one of Abbey Wood's most popular estate agents, Your Move has flats and houses for sale both within the Abbey Wood area, and further afield.

The Manager of Your Move Abbey Wood office, Paul Winters, states: "Abbey Wood, due to the development of Crossrail and the surrounding areas, is an up and coming area".

The area also boasts a retail park in central Thamesmead, a short distance from Abbey Wood, where you will find a selection of shops including Lidl, Morrisons, Argos and Wilkinsons.

Abbey Wood has an abundance of open space with Bostall Heath and Woods and Lesness Abbey being the two most popular along with miles of Green Chain Walks.
