Custom House is an absolutely beautiful area that has been somewhat of a secret for Londoners. Given its prime location it is bound to become another one of the city's great neighborhoods.
There’s a nice selection of housing options here, including many apartments and lofts with modern amenities. There are also some larger Victorian single-family homes, although they are often picked off the market quickly, often to be converted into apartments. It is affordable for the most part, but you’ll have to be a little lenient within your budget to get the best places.
Young professionals and younger couples seem to be the target audience here and it'C becoming increasingly popular with City workers because it is an easy commute. There are a lot of international buyers as well. You won't find a lot of families around because there's not much green space.
