Putney: The best of both worlds

Putney: The best of both worldsHome to some of Britain's most famous faces and a host of attractions, Putney is a superb option for people looking for property to rent in London.

Stunning views of the Thames, excellent restaurants and wide open spaces are just some of the reasons many of the UK's best-loved celebrities live here, but it is not exclusively for the wealthy.

Putney is an urban area full of affordable flats and houses suitable for professional people among its well-trodden and much-loved streets, with something for all kinds of budget.

Entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson, pop star Simon Le Bon and comedian Jack Whitehall all call this area home and with its easy-going atmosphere and multitude of things to do it is easy to see why.

Putney Heath is one of the most pleasant places to spend an afternoon in the capital and was the venue for the famous 1809 duel between Cabinet ministers George Canning and Lord Castlereagh.

Visitors and residents alike can also enjoy all that the River Thames has to offer, as it silently snakes its way through the area, flanked by places to sit and enjoy the view.

It is also a pivotal location for the annual Boat Race between the universities of Oxford and Cambridge, the running of which is a big feature in the local calendar.

In terms of restaurants, Putney is bursting with options from all parts of the globe, especially on Putney High Street.

La Mancha with its delicately delicious tapas dishes, Entoca Turi and its homecooking-style Italian treats and Sydney Brasserie's multicultural offerings are just a few of the places to choose from.

Music enthusiasts can enjoy some of the best live performers London has to offer in the intimate surroundings of the Half Moon pub, as its shows are always worth a look.

"Putney is a thriving commercial centre with a very active evening economy, making it a great place to do business, go shopping and relax," the local council states. "With an unusually high proportion of generally affluent 25 to 45 year olds the town provides a variety of distractions and has a truly remarkable range of pubs, bars and restaurants."

With two Tube stops, an overground station and plenty of bus services, Putney is an area that is easy to get to and from.

It is just half an hour from the centre of the capital too, making it one of the best places from which to choose whether to stay local or head into the hustle and bustle without having to think too much about it.

One of the main attractions of this Wandsworth suburb is its relaxed attitude, which makes it a world away from the chaos of Central London and gives it a character all of its own.

Moving here allows those who thrive on working in the centre and enjoy spending their downtime somewhere a bit more peaceful the chance to enjoy the best of both worlds.
