Gorst road or Grandison road

Postby Lanoula » Sun Jul 22, 2018 4:14 pm

Hi all

I have seen 2 nice properties : one on Gorst rd and the other on Grandison. We don’t live in the area and so I would appreciate some advice. The Gorst road property is in better condition and 17sqm bigger, but location seems tricky to commute.

If any of you know both or either roads, I would appreciate your advice.

Do you have kids? Grandison more likely to be in the catchment for schools eg Belleville. If you’re looking at the bit of grandison between the common and Wakehurst, can be a bit of traffic.
Depends whether you’d rather live north side or nearer to Northcote too.
I’d go grandison but you’d probably get more for your buck on gorst.

Would also go for Grandison as Gorst feels a little 'remote' (by Battersea standards!). From Grandison you can get to Clapham South and Clapham Junction stations without problem. Gorst Rd is further away from both although close enough to Wandsworth Common which has fewer trains. Likely you'll have to change at Clapham Common anyway. Wandsworth Common is really lovely, which is the advantage of Gorst. Not that Clapham Common (closer to Grandison) isn't, but it's a little more 'rough round the edges'. It's bigger though. We used to have friends on Gorst who didn't get into Belleville nor Honeywell three years ago. Might be a consideration for you.
