We currently live in a 2 bed flat in Southfields and since 2020 both started working from home which has made us consider buying a house.
We want to stay as local as possible of Wimbledon and have looked into the South Wimbledon area but want to be north of Kingston road.
The most expensive parts are ministers, South Park gardens.
Then you have places were you get more for your money even though they are across the street like poets, battles, and haydon park road.
Can anyone tell us what makes the difference so big? Is it school catchment area or anything else that makes poets, battles houses less expensive when they are considerably bigger?
We still don’t have family but plan on doing in the next two years so school areas might not be at the top of our minds but we want to be wary of issues.
Is there anything else you can help us to understand the huge differences in what you get for your money in these areas?
