The London Borough of Lewisham is a highly residential area with great transport links into Central London. As a major transport hub, Lewisham residents benefit from a choice of buses, trains, underground or road links into and out of London.
With over 50 percent of the residents of the borough of Lewisham being owner-occupiers, many owners seek to maximise their Lewisham property by extending upwards and carrying out a loft conversion. Whether the loft space is converted into extra living space for yourself or to rent out and generate extra income, Abbey Lofts can work with you to complete your high quality loft conversion.
Brockley, one of South London’s best kept secrets in the Borough of Lewisham was rediscovered by young professionals in the 1990s seeking more spacious accommodation and a greener space in which to live. Containing examples of all styles of mid to late 19th Century architecture be it workmen’s cottages or vast Gothic Revival estates, much of Brockley is designated a conservation area making it a particularly interesting area in which to carry out loft conversations. A loft conversion project in Brockley may require additional planning consent than loft conversions in other South London Boroughs, but converting your Brockley loft is still a possibility. A Mansard Loft Conversion may be the most realistic option for the area. More often than not carried out to the rear of the property, a Mansard conversion can be carried out to specific instruction by the planners as to the acceptable degree of pitch, and restrictions may be placed on the type of windows permitted. Even with such constraints to work to, a Mansard Loft Conversion can provide one of the most spacious loft conversions in the London Borough of Lewisham.
