The place you choose to live has to have everything you want. It has to have the right atmosphere, the necessary facilities and services and more. It can be hard to find something that matches perfectly but youíre sure to find it in the London region if you search hard enough, so why not start your quest with the SW14 postcode district?.
SW14 is one of twenty-eight smaller postcode areas that make up the larger South Western region. The main section was created in 1857 and itís subsections were first introduced in 1917. SW1 (which is made up of itís own divisions such as SW1A) to SW10 are used within London, while SW11 to SW20 are used in Battersea. These areas where implemented as a means to improve street signs and mail delivery, as well as make travel and navigation easier and more accurate. SW95 is another postcode that exists here that is used by businesses for direct marketing and PO boxes.
SW14 is on the outskirts of the main London region and is made up by Mortlake and East Sheen that fall into the Boroughs of Richmond upon Thames and utilise the post town address of London. It borders the SW13, SW15, W4, TW9 and TW19, postcode districts, meaning that it is close to Barnes, Castlenau, Putney, Chiswick, Richmond, Stanwell and more. For a central location itís obviously an expensive place to live. The cheapest homes go for roughly £569,000 for a single bedroom and increase up to about £1,972,000 for five.
