The picturesque ponds in Keston Common, BR2

For centuries Keston has remained a tranquil area. Perhaps the lack of train connections to London limited the appeal for commuters. Although today’s Keston is suburban and rural, it balances both and maintains its countryside character. There are a small array of independent shops and businesses for locals to utilise in Keston. Whilst the larger shopping centres offered by Orpington and Bromley are easily accessible.

Keston is famous for its large manor houses, some converted and presented as modern developments. Ravensbourne and Wilberforce Court, part of Holwood Estate on Westerham Road, are fine examples. The range of properties in the area is pleasingly varied. Keston Park offers exclusive properties built during the 1920s and 1930s in a secure, private-gated setting. Rolling Stone Bill Wyman and former prime minister Margaret Thatcher both resided here.

There are also modern properties and new build properties around the area, which have become popular with family-oriented buyers. Undoubtedly, Keston’s rural vibe and the surrounding Kent countryside draw many people.
