Balham, over the last 5 years, has rapidly become one of the most sought after residential areas in SW London; reaching from Clapham South down to Tooting and across to Streatham, it is home to a vast wealth of desirable property.
From new build flats to Victorian terraces and converted mansion flats, Balham has something for everyone, with its close proximity to the two commons, endless local amenities and prestigious schools making it the ideal spot for families and young professionals alike.
Balham has seen significant investment and growth in recent years, resulting in prices ascending almost to a par with parts of Clapham and Battersea. Nevertheless there has never been a better time to invest in the area, with one-bed flats still to be found for 250,000 – 300,000. In the very popular ‘Nightingale Triangle’ property prices have seen substantial increases, with buyers realising that they can get more for their money as they reach out from between the commons and the imposing double fronted houses of the Heaver Estate, The Hyde Farm area and Telford Park have huge appeal to the family market looking for lots of space and decent gardens.
The area has grown to cater for an increasingly cosmopolitan clientele, with a variety of fashionable bars and restaurants to choose from. During the day locals can enjoy the array of boutique and high street shops, cafes and food markets, whilst the more health conscious can get their fix in one of the many renovated leisure centres, or of course on one of the commons.
Balham has exceptional transport links boasting both Underground (northern line) and Overground stations as well as an excellent bus route network making it the ideal location for those commuting in or out of town.
