Balham is buzzing with independent boutiques, cafes, coffee shops and happening restaurants. It has a slightly more relaxed, village feel than neighbouring Clapham and Brixton, but with enough going on to satisfy everyone's interests. Transport links are excellent, with both London Underground (Northern Line) and National Rail services from Balham Station. The green, open spaces of Tooting, Clapham and Wandsworth Common are all within walking distance. Add to this a strong community spirit and some great local schools, and it's clear to see why Balham has twice been named in The Sunday Times' list of Best Places to Live!Balham area guide

This well-presented, one double bedroom flat is bright and airy throughout and feels like a home the moment you walk through the door. The property is on the fifth floor of this iconic Art Deco mansion block, Du Cane Court, with its handsome exterior and well-maintained grounds. The imposing development was built in 1937 and was once a fashionable place to live for many music stars of the 30s and 40s. Today, the building benefits from a 24-hour concierge, bicycle storage, and some beautiful Art Deco features in the beautifully cared-for communal areas.
The bedroom is a fantastic size, quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Balham High Road. The functional galley kitchen has all you need in terms of mod cons and fits the space perfectly. The reception room has a cosy feel, flooded with natural light thanks to the charming 1930s-style windows, and has plenty of space for both relaxing and dining.
The location is ideal – just a stone’s throw from Balham tube station and the Northern Line, as well as a variety of direct National Rail services to London Victoria, Clapham Junction, and London Bridge. All that lively Balham has to offer is on the doorstep, including a large Sainsburys supermarket. Balham’s array of restaurants and nightlife has grown in recent years, with residents enjoying the large selection of establishments on offer, such as The Exhibit, Lamberts Restaurant and The Bedford pub with its popular live music and comedy nights. In the opposite direction is vibrant Tooting, with its multitude of restaurants, as well as the fabulous Tooting Broadway Market, and the vast open spaces of Tooting Bec Common.
