Situated mainly in the London Borough of Lambeth, with some areas falling into the London Borough of Wandsworth, the once looked down upon Streatham is fast becoming a popular area for first-time buyers, investors and families alike. Compared with nearby Balham, Clapham or Wandsworth, properties here offer more space and bigger gardens at more affordable prices. Despite appearing to be a fairly transitional area, there is a friendly feel to Streatham and a strong sense of community among longer-term residents.
A diverse range of property can be found in Streatham, from modern apartment buildings in the new Streatham Hub just off the High Road, to Art Deco apartment blocks and Victorian/Edwardian houses or conversion flats. The area surrounding the Streatham High Road/Mitcham Lane junction offers a wide range of conversion flats and some good value Edwardian family houses. Whatever your taste and budget, you are sure to find what you are looking for in Streatham.
As part of the ongoing redevelopment and investment in Streatham, the Streatham Hub opened its doors in 2013. The hub boasts a leisure centre complete with ice rink, 25-metre swimming pool, sports halls?and a fully equipped state-of-the art gym. The new development is also home to a Tesco Extra store.
Local pubs and restaurants include The Earl Ferrers on Ellora Road, the Hideaway - a trendy restaurant and jazz bar on Empire Mews and The Manor Arms, a popular pub/restaurant that hosts regular quiz nights and serves up traditional Sunday Roasts.
For nature lovers and families, Streatham Common is just a short distance away and provides access to a large green space with woodland and picnic areas perfect for relaxing in on sunny weekends.
Public transport links in Streatham are excellent with three close by railway stations – Streatham, Streatham Hill and Streatham Common all of which provide regular trains into Central London in less than 30 minutes. The nearest tube stations can be found in Balham (Northern Line) or Brixton (Victoria Line).
