Spotlight on Southfields

The Wimbledon Championships are a highlight of the sporting calendar. But while the tournament takes its name from the famous London suburb, it is arguably the less well known area of Southfields that is actually the home of London’s most famous sporting event.

As well as the tennis, Southfields is home to thousands of Londoners who enjoy low rise, ‘village’ life, just a few miles from the heart of the capital.

Family friendly for buyers or renters

Southfields is particularly popular with young families looking to buy or rent properties with multiple bedrooms in a child friendly area. Green space is plentiful with Wimbledon Park a particular favourite among locals. As well as sailing on the lake created by Capability Brown, the park also hosts a number of live music events and a food festival each year.

The area’s appeal is strengthened by a number of cafes, restaurants and shops as well as excellent local schools and the District Line connection to central London and Wimbledon mainline station.

Anyone for tennis?

The icing on the cake for many is the atmosphere in the community for the two weeks of the Wimbledon Championships. However, for those hoping to escape the crowds, offering your home as a short-term let during the tournament weeks is a possibility and can often generate a rather helpful income.
