Putney is an affluent riverside enclave in the London Borough of Wandsworth and famous for being the starting point of the annual Oxford Cambridge boat race. The River Thames and Fulham lies to the north; Wandsworth and Earlsfield to the east; Wimbledon to the south and Richmond to the west. Putney is an upmarket village known for its outside space and sporting facilities including rowing, tennis and golf. The neighbourhood has a strong sense of community and a thriving albeit chain store dominated high street.
Putney has varied housing stock from Victorian cottages to Edwardian mansions, conversion flats, mansion blocks as well as a number of large new build flatted developments along the river.
Typical purchasers are varied, both families attracted by the strong school offering in the area, but also young professional couples.
The best roads in the area are considered to be around Gwendolen Avenue and the roads immediately to the south of Upper Richmond Road. The houses here tend to be large, detached, red-brick Edwardian houses. Coalecroft Road is a particularly pretty street with early Victorian and Edwardian semi-detached houses and Parkfields is a quaint, narrow street with mainly early Victorian cottages.
