A popular village with all generations. Made famous in the early 1980s by Princess Diana working in one of Clapham’s private preparatory schools. Clapham, again like many of the residential areas of London enjoys excellent outside space, mainly focused around Clapham Common, which extends to 220 acres. Clapham straddles both the London Borough of Lambeth and Wandsworth.
Clapham is itself a collection of areas, this is most easily delineated via the tube stations, Clapham North (which includes the high street), Clapham Common and Clapham South. In addition to this are the residential areas of; Abbeville Village, Northside, Between the Commons, Nightingale Triangle, The Old Town and Clapham Junction (though strictly speaking Clapham junction falls within Battersea)!
Clapham provides a seemingly never ending range of housing stock, equal numbers of flats and houses, although, many of the flats have been created from conversion of former houses. The majority of the housing stock is Victorian, much of Clapham was built after 1860’s. However there are examples of Georgian and even Queen Mary architecture. There are a handful of very grand houses, current values over £10m. However the greater majority are more modest Victorian and Edwardian homes.
Clapham has a thriving community, in terms of schools, churches, restaurants and day to day facilities. The area is particularly well provided for in terms of schooling, both private and state funded. Below are only a selection of the very best schools, you will see we have included many more than other areas as the offering is so strong. It is this strong offering that keeps Clapham in such high demand, not only for sales but also for the letting market. There are two principal shopping areas, Clapham Junction and Northcote Road and Clapham High Street. There are extensive amenities.
