Wandsworth: Rivers, bridges and parks

Wandsworth: Rivers, bridges and parksBackground

The borough of Wandsworth is located just south of the River Thames in South-West London. It borders Lambeth to the east and Kingston-upon-Thames to the south, as well as Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster to the north.

Residents of property to rent in Wandsworth will find that the region is ideally located for transport links across the capital and beyond, thanks to its close proximity to some of the major rail hubs in London.

Boasting the sought-after area of Putney within its borough boundaries, Wandsworth residents can lay claim to bordering the famous River Thames which meanders across the centre of England's capital.

As well as having the option of flats to rent in Putney, those looking for rented accommodation in Wandsworth could look to Streatham Park, Balham, Tooting, Roehampton or Battersea, among others.

Property

Tenants of property to rent in Wandsworth can expect to pay around £841 a month for a studio and £1,148 each month for a one-bedroom residence. Londoners who desire a bit more space from their abode can find two and three-bedroom property to rent in Wandsworth for around £1,491 and £2,050 a month respectively.

Fluctuating market conditions and the individual upkeep of properties will, of course, mean that there are a number of variations within this general price range.

It seems that with London as a whole, young people find it difficult to get on the property ladder - and Wandsworth's most recent house price figures suggest that this south-west borough is no different to its neighbouring regions.

Many students, young professionals and key workers will find that choosing a property to rent in Wandsworth - as opposed to buying one - is a suitable arrangement.

Land Registry estimates indicate that the average price of a property in the borough of Wandsworth in May was £328,525. The average value of a flat was £273,803, while the average cost of a detached property in the borough was approaching £1 million at £926,912.

Indeed, as recently as December 2008, the average detached property in Wandsworth was priced at £1,000,935.

Transport

Major London stations Victoria, Waterloo and Clapham Junction are generally in easy access of those who live in flats to rent in Wandsworth and other types of property in the borough.

Balham and Tooting Bec are located on the Northern Line of the London Underground in Travelcard Zone 3, which means people living in these parts of Wandsworth have a relatively straightforward journey to Bank and various other Central London commercial hubs.

Meanwhile, the sought-after Putney area is situated on the border of Travelcard Zone 2 and 3 on the District Line of the London Underground and is close to Wimbledon.

For those who take the bus, Transport for London estimates that the journey time between Putney station and the shopping haven of Oxford Street and Regent Street is just under one hour.

On the roads, drivers will find five bridges - Chelsea, Wandsworth, Battersea, Albert and Putney - that connect them to the north side of the Thames.

Amenities

With Battersea Park covering a significant percentage of the borough, people in property to rent in Wandsworth have access to one of the most popular and luscious green spaces in the capital.

Various events are held at the park throughout the year, while it is a perfect place to unwind and soak up the sun in the summer months.

Being located on the Thames, Putney provides the borough's residents with a selection of waterside attractions such as rowing clubs and plenty of bars and restaurants. It is also a good spot for watching the annual university boat race between Oxford and Cambridge.

The Wimbledon tennis championships are held close by too, which ensures the borough is a busy place to be when the tournament runs its course each summer.

It is true to say that residents of property to rent in Wandsworth will find there are plenty of things to see and do throughout the borough.
