Roads within the Wandsworth area were built during the Victorian times and showcase a range of styles, from large detached houses with gardens to one storey terraced cottages. However, due to the popularity of the area in the 1960s new building schemes were introduced and an increase in low rise and high-rise buildings were developed. Today the neighbourhood showcases both riverside new-build apartments with incredible views and period houses overlooking Wandsworth Common.

A word from Patrick: Wandsworth has some of the best memories for me and my family, from walks down Northcote Road on a lazy Sunday to feeding the ducks in Wandsworth Common. It is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy time together, especially if you enjoy a Sunday Roast!
