Our home is a spacious 4 bedroom red brick Edwardian maisonette in a safe, leafy road just a few minutes walk from Clapham South tube station and Clapham Common. It’s about 30 minutes door-to-door into central London – Bond Street, Kings Road, Leicester Square, the museums in South Kensington, etc. The London Eye at Waterloo is even closer.
The 220 acre Common has 3 ponds (one used for fishing for roach, tench and bream, another for sailing model boats) plus a paddling pool, Victorian Bandstand and a beautiful Anglican Church, Holy Trinity which holds a popular summer fete. You’ll find a wide variety of sports played here including cricket nets and tennis plus music events and of course it’s very popular with joggers.
About a mile in one direction are the shops of Northcote Road with its cafes, restaurants, pubs and boutiques (like Cath Kidston, Jack Wills, LK Bennett, etc), in the opposite direction there’s yet more green open space of the 125 acre Brockwell Park and the vibrant, cosmopolitan Brixton with its amazing Market. If you’re into tennis when Wimbledon is on, it’s but a tube journey away.
Or if you just want to walk around the corner there are half a dozen restaurants, a pub, a fantastic French boulangerie and a small supermarket.
