7 Reasons to Buy Property in South-west London
Are you looking for a house to buy in South-West London? Or perhaps you need a little more persuasion? Whatever your situation, here are 7 reasons why purchasing property in the area is a good decision.
Parts of South-West London have gained a reputation as being toward the expensive end of the city’s property market. However, there is a fair range of areas, and properties for sale, to choose from. From apartments to 3-bedroom townhouses, there are affordable options to be found across the various neighbourhoods. Properties to rent are a little different, with south-west London experiencing high rental prices, broadly speaking, across the board.
Home to areas like Wimbledon, some South-West London neighbourhoods exhibit the character of a village or town, as opposed to a place that’s 10 miles from the city’s main thoroughfares. Historical architecture, independent businesses, gardening clubs, and families aplenty are just a few of the things that make these ‘villages’ move at a different pace from the rest of the city.
These neighbourhoods are also quite self-contained. You’ll find everything you need there without having to venture far, albeit your commute to other parts of London will be easy via public transport or by car.
If you’re looking to move to a place with access to good schools, there are plenty of choices here. With many private schools, academies, and state schools (each with Outstanding ratings from Ofsted) you can be confident that you’ll find the right match for your child. To name but a few, South-West London is home to Putney Girls High School, Kings College School, Wimbledon High School, St Pauls School, The Latymer School, and The Lady Margaret School.
Having open green spaces in close proximity to your home may be viewed by many in London as a luxury. But with parks like Wimbledon Common, Southpark Gardens, and Battersea Park nearby, you’re spoiled for choice living South-West of the city.
Transport links are a key consideration for many people looking to buy property in London. Trains from Putney go directly to Waterloo in under 15 minutes and the Southfields station connects to Paddington via the District line.
Independent shops, great restaurants, boutique cafes, theatres, museums, and galleries are just a few of the cultural and leisure pursuits you’ll find in the area. If you’re looking for clubs and nights out, you’re only making the short journey to Chelsea and Fulham to find them. That said, other neighbourhoods are full to the brim of quality restaurants, bars, and dining experiences for those who are seeking pre-midnight nightlife.
