Welcome to Streatham Hill

Streatham Hill can be found in the south of London as part of a hub of vibrant communities including Balham, Brixton, Clapham and Tooting. With the growing buzz of local businesses along Streatham High Road, balanced with the serenity of green open space found on Streatham and Tooting Commons, the area is perfect for families. Great transport links to central London also make the area commuter-friendly and ideal for young professionals.

Streatham means “the hamlet on the street”. However, nowadays it is far removed from its status as a hamlet resting on the Roman road from London to Brighton and Hove. It has developed its own unique character thanks to the 400 businesses that thrive along the longest high street in Europe, Streatham High Road. The Victorian and Edwardian villas that line the streets lend a sense of established grandeur to the recently established local businesses.

The proximity to Streatham Common allows access to a versatile green space that can be enjoyed by dog-walkers and joggers, or those who would like to amble through the woodland that is rich in wildlife. A formal garden, The Rookery, boasts a garden area that that is on the English Heritage Register of Historic Gardens and is also home to the Rookery Café for those who would like to enjoy the tranquillity of the open space with a cup of tea and a slice of cake.

Family-friendly local facilities include the Streatham Ice and Leisure Centre which offers access to swimming pools, soft play and a whole host of sports clubs, as well as London’s only Olympic-sized ice rink. It is complemented by a choice of excellent schools in the area providing the ideal setting for children of all ages.

Property types in Streatham Hill

Amidst the red-brick Victorian and Edwardian villas that stretch from Streatham High Road, there are also later family houses that vary in size. The Leigham Court Estate Conservation Area includes the “ABC avenues”, Amesbury, Barcombe and Cricklade, home to terraced houses and maisonettes which, although many are now privately owned, were early examples of social housing.  The Streatham Park and Garrads Road conservation area is largely populated by three-storey semi-detached Edwardian houses.

The most desirable roads can be found in the Telford Park Estate with its Victorian Arts and Crafts detached and semi-detached homes. First-time buyers and downsizers can also find one- and two-bedroom flats in Pullman Court, the first major work of the modernist architect, Frederik Gibberd.
