Introducing: Clapham Common

CC Southside

Clapham is and has for some time been one of London’s most sought after places to live. A bustling high street lined with thriving local businesses, plenty of green space and a charming array of period and modern property styles have led the area to sustain both a young and vibrant dynamic and a safe, family friendly feel with excellent schooling options.

The areas toward Clapham North and Brixton are particularly popular with young professionals and first time buyers looking for character and easy access from Central London. Both Clapham Common and Brixton are home to a vibrant night life and many excellent restaurants.

For families and those seeking residential greenery there is plenty of property on offer. Clapham Old Town and the streets surrounding Abbeville Road both have a distinct ‘village’ feel – these are the places to live if being within walking distance of your local patisserie takes your fancy. Families in the Clapham Common area are spoilt for choice when it comes to schooling options and the green open space of the Common is ever popular with all.
