South West London is arguably one of the coolest quarters in the capital. Whether you’re after leafy suburban comfort, prestigious sports events, or are desperate to keep up with the latest London trends in fashion and food, this is the compass direction for you! Find out what’s on offer right now as we explore some of the best new build homes developments in South West London.

Where is South West London?

South West London is made up of some of the most storied and enticing areas in the capital. It roughly falls between the River Thames on one side, and the A23 and A24 on the other. Its main areas include Brixton, Vauxhall, Clapham, Battersea, Wandsworth, Putney, Richmond, Kington upon Thames and Wimbledon.

Why live in South West London?

Just from the roll call of areas listed above, you can see that South West London has an amazing lineup to offer. Do you want a chilled-out, village-feel city lifestyle complete with beautiful riverside walks and café culture? Putney, Kingston upon Thames and the always popular Richmond have you covered. Many of these South West London favourites feature in the top 10 safest areas in London list.

Do you want a bit more excitement and trendiness in your daily London life? Brixton is undoubtedly for you. This isn’t just one of the coolest areas in South West London – it’s one of the capital’s rising stars. With deep roots and a vibrant future, Brixton brings the best of London’s multiculturalist attitudes to food, fashion and shopping to the fore. Clapham and Balham are also prime examples of how bang on trend South West London can be.

Of course, we can’t ignore Wimbledon, home of the world’s premier tennis event. The annual tournament brings this part of South West London to life as tennis lovers from around the world congregate. For the rest of the year, Wimbledon is still a bustling, busy yet beautiful part of town. Its connection to sport runs deep, and you’ll find no shortage of gyms, fitness clubs and excellent green spaces for balancing health and wellbeing.

Transport in South West London

The southern half of London may still lose out to the north when it comes to accessing Underground stations and lines. Ironically, only the Northern Line penetrates far into the south. However, Transport for London operates a great bus network that gives South West London the public transport coverage it needs.

This part of London is also well served by major A roads that crisscross the main areas. Fortunately, the traffic is far less chaotic here than in central London.

Finally, South West London is ahead of the game in terms of providing excellent cycling and walking routes. These may not provide a viable commute for everyone yet, but their growing presence is a big boost to public health and sustainability in South West London.

South West London property prices

South West London’s housing market is not cheap and is getting more expensive still. Zoopla’s data from March 2022 places the South West London house price average at just over £968,000.

However, remember that this average is skewed by the tremendous highs of large houses and prime waterfront property in the likes of Richmond and Putney. If you are willing to venture further out to the likes of Streatham, New Malden and Kingston upon Thames, you can find more inexpensive property options.
