Putney property – the inside track
19 June 2012
"Putney is the gateway to The Parks. Situated just across the Thames from Fulham, its splendid range of properties are close to the fashionable fringes of London, and handy for Hurlingham and the King’s Road."
Caroline Bell & Alex Howard Baker, Savills Putney
COMMUTER FACTS Excellent rail links (including Putney mainline to Waterloo and the District Line at Putney Bridge and East Putney), along with a popular bus route to Piccadilly (the No. 22).
LOCAL HIGHLIGHTS Putney's town centre is rich in elegant Victorian and Edwardian architecture, with a network of residential streets, augmented by some chic riverside developments. And green space is never far away: south of Putney lies the Heath with miles of wide, open space.
PRIME ADDRESSES Putney's most sought after addresses include Lower Common South, Gwendolen Avenue, St Simon’s Avenue and Malbrook Road which have a fine array of generously proportioned period homes. Smaller (and slightly older) properties are to be found in Parkfields, Coalecroft Road, Charlwood Road and Redgrave Road. Cottage-type properties cost around £1 million and semi-detached villas are worth around £2.25 million. The new Vantage development has chic penthouses at around £1 million.
THE INSIDE TRACK… "East Putney and Roehampton are traditionally cheaper than West Putney. There is no particular reason for this, especially as East Putney's tube station is a definite attraction, yet prices are typically 10 to 15 per cent lower in these areas. Putney's al fresco eateries are the perfect setting for summer dining, and its superb choice of schools ensure that the area continues to attract steady interest from families."
