You don't give a budget, but so long as you have no foibles about ex council properties, I can assure you that it is more than possible to buy a generously proportioned (no St George or whatever rabbit hutch) 2 bed, 1 bath (separate WC and if I wanted another bath it would not be difficult to engineer), 2 reception house
, complete with sunny garden in about as quiet a location as is possible in this corner of the world for c.£250,000. Field and Sons in Borough High Street
is a good place to start. However, agents as far away as Kennington are worth checking out. I bought this place (Scovell Estate) years ago and I'd not even imagine moving now. I'd rather have all this space, friendly neighbours and the garden, than some shoebox in a new development.
