For a large garden
At 63ft x 59ft, the back garden of this six-bedroom property, located in a quiet cul-de-sac near Wimbledon Common, is large by London standards. Featuring a wide lawn suitable for children’s games, the garden can be accessed through French windows in the drawing room, family room and kitchen. For tennis fans, the £5.25m home is a 10-minute walk from the All England Club, host of the Wimbledon Championships.
For proximity to shops and restaurants
This Victorian end-of-terrace home is within easy walking distance of Wimbledon town centre’s shops, bars and restaurants as well as gyms, theatres and cinemas. The five-bedroom house, also less than 10 minutes’ walk from Wimbledon’s train, underground and tram stations, is on the market for £1.75m.
For park life
Situated across the road from 314-acre Wimbledon Common, this bright flat has 1,385 sq ft of living space. The two-bedroom apartment is on the top floor of a four-storey block set within landscaped communal gardens and is on the market for offers in excess of £1m.
For top schools
For buyers looking to move to south-west London with children in tow, access to good schools is likely to be a priority. This Edwardian home is a five-minute walk from independent secondary King's College School, which consistently ranks among the top schools in London, and a five-minute bike ride from Wimbledon High School, a sought-after independent day school for girls aged four to 18. The three-bedroom apartment (also main picture, above), which has high ceilings and herringbone wooden flooring, is priced at £1.85m.
For moving straight in
This newly built four-bedroom house is a short walk from both Wimbledon Village and the train station. Mod cons include a lift, gym and media room, plus an automated smart system to control everything from multi-room audio to heating and lights. The property is on the market for £3.35m.
