What to know about Fulham
The Fulham office of Marsh & Parsons has flats and houses for sale and to let in one of the most vibrant parts of London. "People love the village atmosphere of Fulham," says Ben Gee, Director and Sales Manager. "From trendy boutiques to open spaces and great bars and restaurants, Fulham is a very self-sufficient part of town." The office looks after property sales and rentals in Fulham and the surrounding areas including Parsons Green, Sands End, West Kensington, West Brompton, Hurlingham and parts of Putney.
"We get a lot of buyers moving west out of Chelsea and Kensington into Fulham. The area offers better value and provides many fantastic family houses with large gardens, not often available in central London," says Ben. There was also a lot of modern property added in the seventies and eighties, and the Chelsea Village development was built in the 1990s. The high quality of local schools as well as the larger houses for sale is a big attraction for families moving to Fulham.
"The standard of local state schools is getting much better," says Ben, "and the French schools make the area very popular with families moving here from France." Among the best schools in the area are Thomas', Hurlingham, Fulham Prep, and the London Oratory is not far away.
Property types in Fulham
Unlike many parts of London, the style of property in this areas pretty uniform, as Fulham's prosperity turned from market gardening to housing when the District line arrived in 1880. Most of the properties in Fulham were built in the 35 years leading up to the start of the Great War, and row upon row of redbrick Victorian and Edwardian homes abound. Many remain as family houses and are popular because of their width and the size of gardens, but equally, many have been converted into flats. The exception to this uniformity is the development of contemporary, waterside apartments nearby at Imperial Wharf and Regent on the River, offering an alternative property type.Read more
