After living 5 years in the Tonsley’s, we only have fond memories as a wonderful community, great proximity to CJ and own train. Cafes, pubs are relaxed and friendly, likewise close to Wandsworth and Battersea Power station, if you prefer a walk along the river.
We moved only only a few streets away to East Hill, as the family grew larger and we needed more space. The Houses higher up the hill tend to be a little larger, versus the smaller terraced cottages and most are well positioned for sun.
Old York Road has often been small village feel and not a lot of traffic on the streets - parking is readily available and typically used by residents only.
