City AM explored the reasons for Dulwich Village’s recent jump in house prices in a recent article. ‘There are some very large five, six and seven bedroom houses in Dulwich,’ said Anthony Shoring of Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward, Dulwich, in the article. ‘This makes Dulwich Village hugely popular with families. Property prices reflect this. They have increased by 29% in the past 12 months alone.’ With new development all but non-existent and Dulwich home owners reluctant to move out of the area, the article reports, there’s always a queue of bidders when the large, beautiful period houses come onto the market. The average property prices were reported in July 2015 as £1.6m for a detached home, £1.058m for a semi, £719,458 for a terraced house and £374,475 for flats.
