“Something for everyone”
“Amazing community but there is not much around the area”
Wandsworth Common, Very nice if you can afford it
Its an upmarket area, lots of TV people and private school kids. the local schools suffer a bit from that as many of the household don't use the state system. Every second person has a dog and people dress up in there country outfits to walk them in the park.
two Trainstaions whin walking distance, Earlsfield and Wandsworth common. From the door to victoria station is less than 30mins and Clapham common is one stop away, As it is the busiest rail station in the UK (19 platforms) it offers pretty good connections in all directions.
Bins are collected weekly and never had any qualms about too much rubbish. You can self-purchase as many bins as you want to, fill them up and they take them away. Police present is in the area, and it is therefore mostly free from trouble. There have been a few burglaries in the area and at times cars have been broken into to. the only trouble i have ever witnessed was a fight outside Wandsworth prison which is about 10 mins walk away.
With in 5 mins walk, we now have 2 great coffee places offering super lattes, and flat whites with the accompanying smashed avocado on toast. Restaurants although few offer a good selection. There is an India, a Pizza Express, a wonderful Chinese place call Good Earth (not your usaual sweet and sour pork balls, here you get lobster and oysters) a frensh Lebonises place and there is even a Micheline star placed on the common. The pubs in the area have a nice atmosphere and offer your standard pub fare. Slightly further away we have the whole of Northcoat road, which is all eateries, and those in Earlsfield where there are a couple of good Thai Places. Shops are sufficient with 2 Sainsbury's locals within 10 mins, your standard corner shops and even an upmarket wholefoods style food shop in Earlsfield.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Amazing community but there is not much around the area
There are a few takeaways that are worth visiting. Although, there are not many restaurants from a wide range that can be selected from.
There is a bus stop nearby the area. However, there is no Underground Station around the area which could be an issue for those who need to get into Central London.
You can make friends with a lot of the locals as the majority are parents that live around the area who are welcoming. I find that the community within the area is nice as everyone always helps each other out when in need.
For parents with kids, this area would be pretty good in my opinion as there is a Primary School and Nursery nearby. However, one massive downfall I think is that there are no supermarkets around the area locally.
There is a great community here
