Additional information

Nestled in the valley of the River Wandle between Wandsworth and Wimbledon commons, Earlsfield has emerged from the shadow of nearby Balham and Battersea to become a southwest London residential hotspot.

The area’s attractive 19th and 20th-century terraced streets are a magnet for families and young professionals who enjoy some of the capital’s most inviting green spaces on their doorstep. Good schools, local shopping and a strong community spirit enhance the area’s appeal – and it’s all within a 15-minute commute to Waterloo by train.

Transport

  • Tube: Nearby Southfields tube station is situated on the District Line in travel zone 3, with direct links to Victoria station.
  • Train: Earlsfield train station is situated in travel zone 3 and provides quick services to Waterloo.

Property scene

Distinctive late Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses characterise the area – and dominate the local property market – with their intricate tile and brick details. They are typically three or four-bedroom properties and come with a garden.

There are some larger detached and semi-detached twenties houses in the area for families with bigger budgets. Near the station, post-war 1950s builds stand alongside contemporary developments and ex-council houses.

Things to do

  • Open space: Fantastic green spaces are par for the course around here. Wimbledon Park overlooks the All-England Lawn Tennis Club – home to the world’s most prestigious tennis tournament – and is popular with locals who take advantage of its café, tennis courts, cricket club, 18-hole private golf club, and sailing club. Nearby Wandsworth Common connects Earlsfield with Battersea via its winding woodland paths, with the wild acres of Wimbledon Common just beyond.
  • Eating, drinking and shopping: Many of Earlsfield’s trendy bars, restaurants and boutique shops line Garratt Lane – the beating heart of the neighbourhood.
  • Theatre: The intimate fringe theatre, Tara Arts, is home to successful cross-cultural productions.
