Dulwich Property Style & History
Dulwich can be thought of as three areas, East Dulwich, West Dulwich and Dulwich Village.
Dulwich village itself is steeped in history with the architecture predominantly being period and traditional, with a lot of Victorian and Edwardian properties being built following the arrival of the railways in 1870’s. The village as a whole is regularly described as one of the few London areas to have maintained a true village like charm.
West Dulwich’s big development also coincided with the arrival of the railway, with Thurlow Park, Rosendale and Turney roads being built to provide access to the station. The first houses in the area were grand and huge but became progressively more affordbale as you moved West. The area suffered quite badly following World War II meaning there is also a prominence of 1960’s townhouses and flats around Croxted and Rosendale roads built as part of a post war reconstruction programme.
In essence East Dulwich was first transformed into a residential area in the 19th century with the formation of two estates- Friern Manor Farm and the Bower- Smith Estate. To this day some areas in and around East Dulwich are still managed by the Dulwich Estate a charity founded in 1619. Initially homes in the area were built to house those who were reasonably affluent but couldn’t quite afford to live in the city centre. On this basis homes in the area were predominantly built with families in mind with the prominence of 4/ 5 bedroom Victorian and Edwardian homes.
