“Clapham is a very trendy area, there’s so much to offer being here!”
“Theres great atmosphere around”
Proximity to bus stops is excellent, with several on the roads immediately outside of our home.
The area in general (Clapham south/ Clapham) is very desirable and trendy however whilst my immediate neighbourhood is lovely in places and remains a desirable spot to live, there are certainly aspects of it that need redevelopment, refurbishment and a boost in amenities. My only concern would be a further hike in property and rental prices, which are already quite high in the area
Proximity to bus stops is excellent, with several on the roads immediately outside of our home. However, an increased service Is needed on some of these routes, particularly the 355, which currently operates fairly infrequently operates as mostly a single decker. This is a particular issue during morning rush hour (7-9am) towards Brixton ,when this route is extremely overcrowded. Tube links are slightly less accessible in the immediate area, but access to the northern line and Victoria line is fairly straight forward. However the access to the northern line during rush our is extremely difficult and can mean waiting for up to 10-12 tubes before being able to squeeze on. This is very dangerous. Road and cycle routes in the area area are good.
Good- parking availability in the estate, good mix of zone 2 centrality and leafy suburb in the immediate area Bad - estate in immediate need of refurbishment, very run down and spoils the aesthetic of the rest of the area, lots of amenities that have closed and are now left to waste, quite dark around the estate at night which can feel unsafe - could benefit from lighting additions in the area. The area is mainly renters (private shares, families and council tenants) however also some owned homes in the immediate neighbourhood.
In the immediate area there are a couple of local chain shops which are good in terms of essential shopping. However there are quite a few amenities that have closed in the local area (Clapham park) including pubs, take aways and post office. Whilst there is a good array of shops, bars and restaurants in short walk away (Clapham, Balham) the immediate area (Clapham south) could benefit from redevelopment To include of these immenities. This particularly applies to coffee shops and independent stores. Clapham Common is the closest and most popular area in terms of outdoor space and amenities.
Clapham is a very trendy area, there’s so much to offer being here!
Clapham is a very trendy area, there’s so much to offer being here! If you want to enjoy a day of shopping or a nice meal or drink out, Clapham Junction is great! If you want to enjoy the atmosphere of a busy market then Brixton is great! If you want to enjoy a nice park or swim there’s so many parks and swimming centres around and most are walking distance, of course there is Battersea Park not far too! This area is great for youngsters and families! A little something for everyone!
Transport in Clapham is great, obviously there is bus and tube, with 3 tube stations in this area, Clapham North, Clapham Common and Clapham South, so it’s sure that one will be near by! You also have Brixton not far at all and areas such as Clapham Junction, Streatham, Tooting and Balham are all so close to, just a short bus ride away. Truly a great area for transport! With Clapham Junction Train Station so close the options are so wide!
Most houses/ property on this street/area have parking on the property. I’d say that Kings Avenue is a fairly busy road during rush hour timings so can be a little noisy but no traffic jams or anything like that.
Great area for restaurants and shops, lots of independent and high street favourites all just a short walk away for a bus ride away! This area offers low cost options such as Iceland & Lidl whilst still offering shops as Waitrose and Sainsbury’s. There’s even a food market not far in Brixton! Lots of variety and choice here!
Theres great atmosphere around
Brixton have the greatest society pf jamaican people the are the really friendly and always encouraging ypu to try new food and aspects of their lives its great fun
The greatest stacion that you can take to transports around central london its brixton stacion apart from that the buses are quite good and on point if you miss one another will be there in about 5 mins or less
Theres great atmosphere around but theres quite a few areas that you can see bad thing going on and people too drunk aswell after certain time its better not to pas around there
Brixton its full different shop and butchers where you can find any type of food and spices also a bunch of bars where pints are quite cheap and again jamaican restaurants are the best
the area has proved to be better than expected
