What is Wandsworth like?
The allure of Wandsworth is its space, its convenience and its community. Wandsworth Common is the area’s green heart, with its tennis courts, lake and play area set in 175 acres of open parkland.
As well as focusing on Wandsworth itself, our close partnership with the teams in Clapham, Battersea and Northcote Road means that we are a gateway to property in those areas too, reaching out as far as Dulwich and pockets of Streatham.
Property in Wandsworth
Family homes are Wandsworth’s principal draw. Smaller properties of between two and four bedrooms are sought-after in The Tonsleys, a suite of roads with a village atmosphere tucked behind Old York Road. The nearby East Hill area is popular for its larger, semi-detached houses, while the cream of Wandsworth’s property is to be found in the Toast Rack, a grid of streets jutting into Wandsworth Common that contains substantial semi-detached houses in handsome red-brick and stucco.
For something cottagey in The Tonsley’s head to Tonsley Place, Tonsley Street, Tonsley Road and Tonsley Hill.
For more space in the East Hill area, try Fullerton Road, Dempster Road, Alma Road, Melody Road, Cicada Road and Jessica Road.
For prime properties in the Toast Rack, head to Henderson Road, Dortcote Road, Nicosia Road, Baskerville Road and Patten Road.

The Southside Shopping Centre has a wide selection of upmarket high-street names as well as a cinema.
