There are so many local parks and areas of green that you wouldn’t expect so close to London.

There are so many local parks and areas of green that you wouldn’t expect so close to London. The little cafe’s and friendly faces that become so familiar are one of the best parts of living in Earlsfield. This area is brining in an abundance of new stores becoming a hot spot for every type of person. I feel relatively safe in this area considering it is London and you hear horror stories all the time but there is limited truth in these and what is portrayed as terrible is usually a minor altercation that you would get anywhere. There are many dogs and pets and children which people wouldn’t choose to have here if it was not a safe place to live. It is wonderful living here and having the outdoor lifestyle of a pub on a Sunday with some good so well balanced with being able to jump on a train into London in less then 15 minutes.

Transport

Located right on the mainline to Waterloo, Earlsfield couldn’t get any better with transport. There is always a provision of night busses that run like clockwork and if that’s not your thing there are AWLAYS Uber drivers waiting for your business. The train station team are friendly and always happy to help.

Community

Bin collection for myself lands on a Thursday and there are always people willing to help if you run out of recycling bags a bit quickly! There are an abundance of traffic wardens which may be problematic to some but these guys work tirelessly day in and day out to ensure I get my parking space haha! The variety of young professionals, families and students all living harmoniously is a sight to see. Everyone is willing to help and you get to meet the most extraordinary people in day to day life. With so many estate agencies located on the high street there is always someone to contact if you’re renting. If you live on the main road it can seem a bit noisy but not into the wee hours, and everyone disperses pretty quickly. All in all a very pleasant place to live

Amenities

I moved to Earlsfield a few months ago and have found since that there have been some brilliant independent shops as well as a useful Tesco and Sainsbury’s. These independents are so friendly and welcoming and I’ve met some wonderful members of the community that are willing to help. The abundance of produce available was unexpectedly pleasant and I don’t have to venture outside did the area to get everything I need to feed my family. The local pubs I visit, mainly the wandle and the Earlsfield all have great food and a great atmosphere and the area keeps improving by adding more bars like Tequila Mockingbird to keep business thriving in the area. Even with the current economic climate new stores are popping up, more recently nysa which looks like a lovely little wine and drinks shops. From hairdressers to estate agents, design and build companies and eateries Earlsfield literally has everything you could need. If you’re a fan of Indian food, Nazmins is the place to visit, but the abundance of cafes and eating out options are incredible for a small town in London.

Something for everyone

The local area has a real sense of community with something for everyone- young people, families and older residents. We are friendly and open to all. The area has not lost its original charm but has been regenerated and is much safer and cleaner than before.

Transport

Extremely well connected with the SWR station Earlsfield (3 minutes from Clapham Junction, 11 minutes from Waterloo), the district line at Southfields and the Northern line at Tooting all within a short distance. There are also buses direct to Putney, Victoria and Waterloo for cheaper travel 24 hours a day. There are Santander bikes to rent outside Southside shopping centre. The main junctions at Garratt Lane and Magdalen Road and Penwith Road and Earlsfield road can become busy at rush hour.

Community

There is a variety of people living on our street. Young family homeowners, older residents who have been in the area for many years, and young renters. It is family friendly. Being close to the main street and station the area can be busy with deliveries, workers and people passing throughout the day, all week, but it is very peaceful at night. There are resident parking restrictions 9-4 on weekdays with lots of spaces and the option to pay as you park. There is free parking at weekends. Bins are collected weekly although we sometimes have passers by flytipping near the station.

Amenities

Earlsfield has an assortment of independent cafés, bars, restaurants, beauty salons and shops. There are two good supermarkets plus an independent deli and butcher's - Dugard and Daughters - which stocks an impressive range of high welfare produce. Earlsfield residents can take advantage of being located in the middle of Garratt Lane, with plenty more retailers, pubs and restaurants to choose from. Highlights are the Earlsfield, with its range of world beers and wines and excellent pub grub, Amrutha all-you-can-eat vegan, Bean & Hop brunch and coffee, Marina fish bar and Blume florists. Located at each end of Garratt Lane are Wandsworth and Tooting, with more shopping options at Southside (including Waitrose, Planet Organic and the Sainsbury's superstore) and the excellent Tooting and Broadway markets for independent shops, bars and restaurants. King George's park along the Wandle river is an excellent outdoor space with tennis courts, a lake, children's play areas and skate park. It is also a short walk from the beautiful Wandsworth common.
