South West London is well-known for property hunters looking for a solid investment. Hotspots such as the borough of Wandsworth are choice locations for families looking to put down roots, with good schools, over 200 acres of green space and vibrant high streets to enjoy. And with property prices in Tooting rising over 46% in the last 5 years, 3% higher than the average in London, there’s a multitude of reasons for buyers to make the most of the SW17 postcode.
Now on sale, Bellway is building a brand new and exclusive collection of two and four bedroom townhouses at St George’s Gate. Located in the heart of Tooting, the homes have been designed for families and professionals looking to make the most of the local amenities the area has to offer, while creating a secure investment.
Mark Harrop, Head of Sales at Bellway Homes South London, comments: “This area of South London is a firm favourite for families looking to settle down. Fast transport links with the Northern Line and national rail from nearby Earlsfield make it ideal for commuters, while the range of schools on offer for all ages mean everyone is catered for. This exciting part of the capital is a great investment for lifestyle as well as capital. We’ve already been inundated with enquiries, so we would urge interested buyers to move swiftly.”
The townhouses at St George’s Gate boast spacious open plan living areas, modern bathrooms with Roca sanitary ware, and kitchens featuring fully integrated AEG appliances. All homes will benefit from landscaped gardens and off-street parking – an excellent bonus for homeowners living in the capital.
Bellway’s elegant development sits well within Tooting Bec’s existing and much-loved Victorian, Edwardian and Arts and Crafts housing stock, and adds to the neighbourhood’s village feel.
But for many, the key draw to Tooting is its green space; several hundred acres of common land, which spans Tooting, Streatham and Wandsworth – and even includes Tooting Bec Lido (the biggest open air swimming pool in the country) and The Central London Golf Centre. The club boasts a nine-hole golf course and floodlit driving range.
Tooting is also home to an excellent array of restaurants and shops, and is well known for its music and comedy venues such as the Tooting Tram & Social, housed in a converted tram shed, and The Bedford in Balham, home to the long-running Banana Cabaret comedy club.
There are plenty of highly-regarded schools in the area, including Fircroft Primary School, Hillbrook School and Gatton VA Primary. Secondary schools including Ernest Bevin College and Burntwood Schools, and for further education, South Thames College is also close to home.
Tooting Bec underground station offers fast and direct access to Waterloo, Charing Cross, Bank and Old Street, which has the added benefit of running 24 hours a day at the weekend. For national rail services, Wandsworth Common and Earlsfield, both around 20 minutes’ walk away, provide fast and frequent services to Waterloo, Clapham Junction and Victoria stations. Major roads are easily accessible from the development, including the A24, A3 and A23.
