Are you moving in the Clapham area? Well LoveClapham has put together, with the help of our Twitter followers, a list of where we think the Top 5 roads are to live in and what makes them so good!
An edgy little street right at the heart of Clapham that offers The Picture House, Venn Street Records bar and once a month the awesome farmers market. It’s a 3 minute walk from just about everything – the tube, the common, the old town, Sainsbury and Infernos (should you be that way inclined!). Ideal for those wanting to ‘get involved’ in Clapham’s bustling life – if a little too involved on a Friday and Saturday night! Slightly steering towards the expensive side but totally worth it for such a prime location.
Ah the heart of nappy valley! The bustling market stall lined street brimming with ladies that lunch, mummies that are yummy and young business men spilling out of lush little boutique shops and cafés. Not the cheapest street on our list with a 2 bed flat coming in at anywhere between £1350 and £2200 a month, but trendy, charming and very appealing to couples and young families. Situated at only a short walk from both Clapham and Wandsworth Commons – nicely placed in the Wandsworth Council tax zone – it offers a lot to do and see for residents with restaurants, bars, antiques shops, galleries on the door step. Transport links are great with Clapham Junction station 5 minutes away
The underdog of LoveClapham’s top 5 roads – but give or take a metre it’s the closest to the Common, ASDA and all the bars Lavender Hill, quiet parking and close to both the overland and the tube– what more could you want?! And out of the 5 it’s the best in terms of rent prices – woohoo!
This came up a number of times with our twitter followers as one of the most desired locations in Clapham. It’s an exclusive private road at a stone’s throw from the common, that has just over 70 residential properties some of which are touching the million pound plus price tag – wowzers! But it’s quiet, beautiful, slightly like the Desperate Housewives street and ideal for those wanting a little corner of luxury at the centre of Clapham
We couldn’t possibly miss out Clapham’s heart and soul, with tubes at both ends its vibrant atmosphere, ‘plethora’ of bars and restaurants and quirky shops. We found that rent prices fluctuated a great deal with some bargains and other extortionate fees for properties not a great deal bigger than a garden shed! It positively buzzes from early morning to late at night, which for a lot of you sounds like hell but for those wanting to be right in it with everything within rolling distance then this is the street.
Your street not here? – let us know if you think it should be and why!
