With a median home price of £1.2M and close transport links, Wimbledon continues drawing London’s elite.
Nestled in South West London lies the charming village of Wimbledon, steeped in history. Property hunters flock to this leafy pocket drawn by period properties, green spaces and close links to the capital.
The area has housed royals since 1314 when Edward II gifted land to the Archbishop of Canterbury. Grand manors from this era still stand amongst Victorian terraces and flats in modern designs. Well-heeled locals reside in detached Georgian villas as well as contemporary apartments at Nine Elms and Barn Elms.
Over 1000-acres of Wimbledon Common has long offered residents escapism in woodlands and heathland. In 1877, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club hosted its first Championships in the village, which has since transformed the global sport. Stars still practice on these hallowed courts in anticipation of the annual tournament.
Schools like Wimbledon College and Rutlish attract pupils from miles around with top marks. Young families populate trendy eateries and boutiques on the high street such as yoga brand Sweaty Betty and Italian favourite PizzaEast.
With a median home price of £1.2M and close transport links, Wimbledon continues drawing London’s elite. History palpably threads its streets and parks populated by both prominent personalities and regular folk alike who are proud to call this verdant village home.
