The Loft Converter is a leading loft conversion company specialising in loft conversions in Herne Hill, South London. See what our satisfied customers say on our testimonials page.
Herne Hill is a district in South London, approximately five miles from central London and is bordered by Brixton to the west, Denmark Hill, Dulwich Village, Loughborough Junction and Tulse Hill to the south. It lies within the SE24 postcode area, and is split between the boroughs of Lambeth and Southwark.
Herne Hill was transformed by the arrival of the London, Chatham & Dover Railway in 1862, leading to cheap and convenient access to London Victoria, the City of London, Kent and south-west London. This created demand for extensive middle-class housing; the terraced streets that now characterise the area were constructed in the decades after the opening of Herne Hill station.
Property in Herne Hill consists mainly of Victorian, Edwardian and 1920s houses. Some of the best roads in the Herne Hill area are Stradella Road, which has large detached double-fronted Edwardian houses, and Carver Road which has 1920s double-fronted semi-detached houses. The Sunray Estate built between 1920 and 1922 on garden suburb principles under the Homes for Heroes initiative consists of simple cottages which are now mainly owner-occupied. Many of these properties are ideally suited for loft conversions, with ample potential loft space for additional living areas, extra bedrooms for a large family or guests, a private study or office space.
