But if you’ve been looking for property to rent in Wimbledon you may have found it more difficult than expected to get to grips with its identity and character. At first glance the Wimbledon area, stretching from the Village and Common to the west to Wandle Meadow nature reserve in the east, can seem like a mass of contradictions.
At Crooked Billet, close to Wimbledon Common, you’ll find rose-covered cottages bordering open green spaces completely untouched by development while the nearby Village is a quaint mixture of Georgian and Victorian architecture, independent shops, cafes and restaurants. Just a mile or so down the hill the Broadway boasts cinemas, theatres, bars and busy shopping centres built around a major transport hub. To the east Wimbledon’s character changes again, with peaceful suburban roads surrounding a picturesque Edwardian park. Further south, in the streets around South Wimbledon tube station, you’ll find another busy urban scene.
When you are renting in Wimbledon a lot may depend on your age and whether or not you have a family. Looking for great nightlife? The Broadway has all the amenities you’d normally expect to find in the West End. Here you can enjoy an evening’s entertainment and get up the next morning for an effortless 20-minute commute into central London from Wimbledon station. With this fantastic garden flat at Fairlawn Road - available for long term let – you’ll be a short stroll away from everything ‘Wimbledon Town’ has to offer.
For tenants with a young family an area such as The Slopes may be the ideal location. These peaceful, residential streets have grown up around Wimbledon’s Edge Hill and primary schools here include Dundonald Primary, Bishop Gilpin Church of England Primary and St Mary’s Catholic Primary School, all described as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted. Close by in Melbury Gardens Winchester White can offer a fantastic 3-bedroom house available for a long term let.
