Balham

Good To Know Guide: Balham

 

Balham is quickly catching up with the prices of Battersea and Clapham, as people realise what a fantastic area it is to live in. Here are a few reasons why Balham is becoming one of Douglas & Gordon’s more popular places to live.

The Gateway to the South. Balham stretches from the fringes of Clapham South to the edges of Streatham and Tooting Bec. The high-end of the market includes wonderful family homes set within the Nightingale Triangle, where you will find some of Balham’s most in-demand roads. However, the more affordable Heaver Estate and Wandsworth Common neighbourhood has also become more popular in recent years.

Your future neighbours. Property in Balham ranges from Victorian terraced houses to converted and purpose-built maisonettes and flats, offering something for everyone. Young professionals benefit from the excellent transport links into the city, while families enjoy a real sense of community and a wide choice of reputable, local schools.

Between The Commons. With over 1,600 acres of green space - including Tooting Bec Common, Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common - it is no wonder that SW12 is known to be London’s leafiest borough to live in.

Eating, drinking and shopping. Balham is not just about beautiful green spaces, it also gives you access to plenty of fashionable bars, restaurants and shops. We love the Nightingale Pub and the Nightingale Patisserie, on Nightingale Lane, along with the Bedford Pub for live gigs featuring up-and-coming musicians.
