"I'm a big fan of Bow and of the East End as a whole. It's a thriving community that's as diverse as London itself.
Prices for a 4 bed Victorian terraced in need of a do-over are already jumping up to 650k in the Tredegar conservation area! In a recession, no less. A real shame that in 10 years or so it will as unaffordable as Greenwich and even more first time home owners (in their 40s no doubt) will be forced to move to the south bank."
