Streatham Hill lies to the north of Streatham and shares the Brixton SW2 postcode. It is the more expensive of the two areas although it is still more affordable than Clapham. Located between Clapham to the west and East Dulwich to the east, it is often referred to as The Clapham Overflow. Streatham Hill is currently benefitting from young families and professionals out priced by the surrounding areas but still wanting to live close by. With its spacious properties and strong sense of community, it is fast becoming a popular and sought-after location.
A wide range of property types and architectural styles can be found in Streatham Hill for a wide range of budgets. Whether you prefer modern flats and apartment buildings or Victorian/Edwardian houses and conversion flats you are sure to find something to your taste. Popular areas in Streatham Hill include Thornton and Telford Avenue. The Leigham Court Estate or “ABCD” Estate named after its avenues - Amesbury, Barcombe, Cricklade and Downton – was developed from 1891 and is now a conservation area that offers red brick terrace houses and maisonettes of historical and architectural importance.
The small but popular Palace Road Nature Garden and Hillside Gardens provide access to nearby green space. A little further afield but still within walking distance, Streatham Common offers a far larger open space with woodland, picnic areas and a formal ornamental garden.
