Earlsfield: Flats to rent in Earlsfield ? a city retreat

Earlsfield: Flats to rent in Earlsfield ? a city retreatBackground

As the capital of England, London is a thriving city with plenty of different areas offering all kinds of amenities for anyone hoping to live in this exciting part of the country.

One place people may want to consider is the London borough of Wandsworth and flats to rent in Earlsfield could be particularly appealing to those after quieter, value-for-money accommodation.

Although Clapham and Battersea are the more well-known places in the borough, Earlsfield nestles among them on the banks of the River Wandle, providing a more affordable way of living south-west of the city centre.

As well as traditional flats to rent, there are maisonettes and a variety of ex-council properties, which is likely to mean there is something for everyone out there, no matter what their personal taste.

Single city slickers, young parents or professional couples are all catered for here, with Earlsfield's tree-lined streets providing a haven and welcome escape from the concrete and noise of inner-city living.

Property

Buying a house or flat in London is always going to be an expensive business and Earlsfield is certainly no different.

This is why it may be in people's best interests to consider flats to rent in the London borough of Wandsworth instead and you only have to compare the prices to see the significant difference.

According to figures from the Land Registry, the average price for a property to buy in this area in May 2010 was £376,077. This represents a 14.3 per cent increase when compared with figures for the previous year.

Although people may consider this to be an acceptable price for a London home, they may also be shocked to see it is well above the national average of £165,314.

In comparison, people looking for property to rent in Earlsfield can expect to pay an average of £258 per week for a one-bedroom home, £353 per week for two bedrooms or an average of £496 per week if they are a family requiring four bedrooms.

If this still seems a little steep for some people, there are some properties available for as little as £185 per week for a one-bedroom place, which may give them some extra cash to take advantage of the local shops, pubs and bars in the area.

Transport

Earlsfield provides plenty of local amenities for anyone looking at flats to rent in the London borough of Wandsworth, with cafes and restaurants in particular offering a variety of different cuisines to suit all tastes.

However, if people want to go into the city or visit friends in other parts of London, Earlsfield's excellent transport links make this easy.

As well as enjoying easy-to-access train links in Earlsfield, Tooting and Wandsworth Town, people renting a property in the area, which is located in Zone 3, are able to hop on the Tube to get them into the centre of London, whether it is on the District Line at Southfields or the Northern Line at Tooting Bec.

Anyone heading elsewhere in the UK is just half an hour away by car from the M25, while Heathrow Airport is a 40-minute drive for lucky holidaymakers jetting off to somewhere exotic.
