The capital’s biggest annual sporting event has the whole world’s eyes on the affluent suburb of Southwest London, but the Tennis isn’t the only reason why Londoners are so attracted to Wimbledon. Only seven miles outside of central London, Wimbledon offers a charming small village feel whilst still being of easy access to the city centre.

Wimbledon has become a hotspot for property buyers and investors, and there are currently over 80 houses on the market that are going for more than £2 million. The Wimbledon property market varies, from large family homes and period properties, to modern apartment buildings, meaning Wimbledon has something for everyone.


So what makes property in Wimbledon so appealing?

Firstly, Wimbledon’s reputation as the ‘leafy’ suburb means that is somewhat of an escape from the hustle and bustle of the capital. The variety of green open spaces and the fact that Wimbledon and Putney Commons are so close by adds to the attraction for families moving to the area.

Of course, there is also the tennis effect. The fact that the world’s oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament takes place in Wimbledon every summer puts Wimbledon and everything it has to offer in the spotlight.

The infrastructure in Wimbledon Village accommodates both the residents of Wimbledon and the swarms of visitors that descend on Wimbledon every year. The excellent variety of restaurants, shops, bars and good schools in the area helps to maintain the price growth in this lovely suburb.
