London Areas starting with S

Selhurst - SE25

Selhurst, situated to the north of Croydon between Thornton Heath and Norwood, lies 11 miles from the centre of London and 12.5 miles from the M25. Although situated an easy bus ride from the busy retail centre of Croydon, Selhurst has its own bustling, multicultural community of small independent shops, supermarkets and restaurants, which can largely be found lining the main Whitehorse and Selhurst roads.

Selsdon - CR2

Selsdon, lies between Sanderstead and Forestdale, it is 15 miles from the centre of London and only 8 miles from the M25. The busy high street has a large number of shops and several banks, restaurants and pubs. Although no train service exists, there are frequent bus services to the nearby town centres of Croydon and Bromley. Sanderstead station lies only a brief drive away. Housing is predominantly semi-detached and post 1930's surrounding the high street, although larger detached properties lie to the south towards Warlingham and to the north towards South Croydon. Property between Selsdon and Forestdale consists of smaller 1960's and 70's built houses and flats laid out in cul-de-sacs.

Seven Sisters - N15

It may not look too pleasant around the tube, but walk for 3/4 minutes to the residential streets and the houses are ideal for first time buyers and the streets are quiet.

Shad Thames - SE1, SE16

A forgotten area after the docks declined in the 1970's, now rejuvenated with riverside flats and apartments and the arrival of the Jubilee Line. Trendy bars, restaurants and shops lie east of Tower Bridge in Shad Thames. Rotherhithe remains the focus for much of the riverside development. Plush apartments and converted warehouses draw the attentions of the city set, whilst Bermondsey still retains a reminder of its past with several scruffy council estates. Some Victorian cottages and terraces remain further inland.

Shepherds Bush - W12

Large shopping centre and lively local market. Numerous bars and restaurants. Nearest Park - Ravenscourt Park

Shooters Hill - SE18

Southeastern Suburb. Handy for Millenium Dome, the building which can still be viewed.

Shoreditch - N1

Handy for the City. Some areas gentrified

Sidcup - DA14 , DA15

Pleasant suburb, good sized houses with gardens. Good road access to Southeast and M25 orbital motorway

Sipson - UB7

Soho - W1

Soho is not as seamy as it used to be, although if you look hard..... The area now attracts designers and artists, authors and media-types to a vibrant, cosmopolitan scene. Plenty of restaurants and lively bars. Accommodation is usually flats above one of the many shops or bars. The area is about as central as you can get with excellent transport links from a variety of Tube stations. Most places are an easy cab ride away

South Hampstead - NW6

South Hampstead is situated between West End Lane, Belsize Road, Finchley Road and is very much the same as nearby Swiss Cottage.

South Harrow - HA2

South Kensington - SW7

All very respectable. Smart multi storey stucco houses off Old Brompton Road and Gloucester Road, many of which have been converted into flats. Larger houses around the Fulham and Brompton Roads all of which command an equally large price. More modest homes can be found to the north of the Fulham Road. A plentiful supply of smart shops and restaurants.

South Norwood - SE25

Commercial properties, warehouses and small businesses sit side-by-side amidst tight roads of Victorian and 1960's built terraced housing. As you climb the hill along the Whitehorse Road towards Norwood from Croydon, properties increase in size with neat rows of Victorian and mid-war semis

South Tottenham - N15

Southall - UB1

Culturally diverse, lively area with restaurants and bars that reflect the multi-ethnic character. Good housing stock. Good access to South west of the country.

Southfields - SW18

Pleasant area with good quality housing stock. Close to Putney Heath and Richmond Park

Southgate - N14

Northern suburb, large houses - many with gardens. Good access to M1 and North

Southwark - SE1

Handy for the City and West End

St John's Wood - NW8

Very pleasant and refined sought after area with good housing stock. Good access to the City and West End. Cricket headquarters.

St Margarets - TW1

Small cottages and conversions are availablein St. Margaret's on the opposing bank of the Thames to Richmond and they offer a more modest and suburban setting. Grand mansion blocks fringe the riverbank, whilst larger Victorian and Edwardian family homes reside in the roads behind.

St Pauls Cray - BR5

St. Paul's Cray is largely council maintained although, as you climb Leesons Hill and head west towards Chislehurst, larger detached properties become abundant along wide tree lined roads, the grandest of which can be found along Marlings Park Avenue and the main Orpington Road.

Stamford Hill - N15

large Victorian and Edwardian terraces which are much sought after as family homes. Still largely urban, rather than suburban in character, large council blocks still blight the area although many are now making way for better quality low rise developments.

Stanmore - HA7

Northern suburb, good sized housing, gardens. Convenient for M1 giving access to North

Stepney Green - E1

Stepney is noted for its centuries old riverside pubs and new luxury flats in former warehouses. Many of the local pubs off history and true London East End culture.

Stockwell - SW9

Suburb close to City and West End. Mainly residential property.

Stoke Newington - N16

Diverse area, some gentrification. Reasonably convenient for the City.

Stratford - E15

Handy for the City, good road communications to the North and Southeast. On the junction of several rail lines and to be developed as part of the Cross Channel high speed link?

Strawberry Hill - TW7

Strawberry Hill to the south of Twickenham offers a leafy suburban setting with a varied stock of pleasant tree-lined Victorian and Edwardian properties, inter-war terraces, the usual supply of conversion flats and some good modern developments

Streatham - SW16

Lively with lots of restaurants, shops, clubs, ice-rink, venues, eight cinema screens, swimming pool and ten-pin bowling. Having undergone a major transformation in recent years the area, has a young and lively feel to it.

Streatham Hill - SW2

Stroud Green - N4

Sudbury - HA0

Great Western suburb, Sudbury is fantastic for city access and has excellent local resources.

Perfectly placed to get to Harrow, Wembley or Alperton areas, Sudbury has good local shops for the necessities and it's a short trip to get to supermarkets. There are some popular local eateries, though many make the very small journey to nearby Harrow.

The area is spoilt for choice when it comes to parks and green spaces, and a popular area for sports with the Vale Farm sports centre close by. It's overall got a good villagey feel and is only 20 minutes from the centre of town.

Property here is from a variety of periods. The mainstay is the semidetached house, with a good spread of midwar houses, but some modern blocks and purpose built developments as well. Most of the houses here are whole, but there are some conversions; they're set in leafy, very wide streets that are mostly quiet and safe.

Surbiton - KT6

South Western suburbia

Surrey Quays - SE16

Exciting modern redevelopment of Docklands waterfront area. South Bank part of prestigious extension to City financial district, for which it is very handy. Large shopping centre

Sutton - SM2

Offering a real mixture of property types and styles from modern blocks of 1960's and 1970's apartments to Victorian terraces and semis, Sutton is home to the borough's shopping and office centre. Although often cast in the shadow of the major shops of nearby Croydon, Sutton town centre has recently undergone a revamp. South Sutton houses the most sought after detached and semi-detached properties in wide tree lined streets.

Swiss Cottage - NW3

Very pleasant and refined sought after area with good housing stock. This area is ideal for those wanting access to the West End or the City. Avenue Rd leads directly to Regents Park and there is a wide variety of pubs, restaurants, shops and theatres within a short walk along the Finchley Rd. There is a new Sainsbury superstore, and a multi-screen cinema and leisure complex is being finished for mid-end 1998. The area has superb tube and bus connections with Metropolitan / Jubilee and Northern lines all easily accessible.

The area is very popular with the rich and famous, just a few of your local neighbours would include Bob Hoskins, Mel B and Barry Humphries. Home to stars of stage and screen.
