Moving to a new home is a big step in life. It can be responsible for many changes and so choosing the right place for can determine whether these are positive or negative. It may seem impossible that you can find somewhere that is perfect but once you start taking a look at the London region you will be surprised at how many great places there are. With so much choice it can be a long search so why not start with the SW18 area?.
SW18, while it’s own area, is a part of the South Western postal district. This region is broken up into twenty-seven postal sections, each represented by a code; SW1A to SW20, as well as the non-geographic code SW95. Most of these are used in London while the rest encompass parts of Battersea. The additional codes have made many improvements to the postal service as well as street signs and navigation.
The Wandsworth district utilises the SW18 code and features the areas of Wandsworth, Southfields and Earlsfield. These are all part of the Borough of Wandsworth. SW18 is close to such places as Fulham, Battersea, Putney, Tooting and Wimbledon, which are in the SW6, SW11, SW15, SW17, SW19 areas respectively. House prices have risen here recently and now homes start at around £344,000 for one bedroom increase up to £1,882,000 for five bedrooms. Flats are obviously cheaper spanning between £279,000 and £740,000 also for one to five bedrooms. Routh Road features the most expensive homes in the area, proceeded closely by Baskerville Road.
Wandsworth has been dubbed one of the thirty-five major centres of Greater London and rightfully so. There is a large selection of shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants to visit and many great homes near the river front next to the River Wandle and, popular but expensive Victorian homes in Old York Road and townhouses near Wandsworth Common. Chez Bruce is here and was once named London’s favourite restaurant. Wandsworth High Street is the main shopping hub and features the recently
