Streatham Area Guide
Streatham is by far one of the most diverse and vibrant parts of South London. The area is known for its strong sense of community and lively cultural vibe which, combined with the current regeneration project, is drawing interest from young families and raising Streatham’s profile.
The multi-million pound regeneration programme is currently underway and aims to provide hundreds of new modern flats, create new jobs, and improve leisure facilities. Small businesses have also started regenerating their shop fronts to create an even better customer experience to further improve the local environment.
As well as the new bars, restaurants and shops that are starting to establish in the area, Streatham has an abundance of open spaces and leisure facilities to offer local residents. With both Streatham Common and Tooting Bec Common just a stone’s throw away, there is no shortage of green spaces, summer events and recreational facilities including sports pitches, playgrounds and the famous Tooting Bec lido.
Streatham has three mainline rail stations, offering fantastic links in to Central London. It takes just 20 minutes to get to London Victoria by train and there are regular buses connecting Streatham to neighbouring areas and the city centre.
There is a wide variety of property in Streatham, with something to suit every budget. The area offers a huge range of beautiful Edwardian and Victorian properties, as well as a selection of modern flats in newly built developments that are starting to pop up due to the Streatham regeneration project.
There is plenty of choice in this more affordable suburb – especially when compared to nearby Balham or Clapham – which is drawing attention from both first time buyers and investors. Streatham is fast becoming a popular spot for families and professionals who are looking for a bit more space for their money while staying connected to the city.
