There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common sits at its centre and is always buzzing with activity. There’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London. The local schools are excellent and the transport options second to none, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station.Clapham area guide

This characterful, split-level flat occupies first and second floors of one of the pretty terraced houses on Santley Street. The property has a lovely Victorian facade is nestled in a highly sought after location, popular for its character, feel and proximity to both Clapham (eight-minute walk) and Brixton (eight-minute walk). With nearly 800 square feet of internal living space, the property is split over various levels which amplifies the feeling of space, and with two comfortable double bedrooms plus a study/single bedroom, the layout is versatile and will appeal to anyone looking to rent out the spare bedrooms or share with friends, whilst maintaining a sense of space and privacy.
The separate reception room is wonderfully bright thanks to multiple, double glazed sash windows, and runs the entire width of the property, complete with a feature fireplace, exposed wooden floorboards, and high ceilings. The living space is fantastic – ample space for dining, relaxing and entertaining – and is in keeping with the bright and neutral theme throughout the flat. Adjacent to the reception room there is a spacious kitchen diner and these two rooms could be knocked through to create a large, open plan space, depending on the purchaser's requirements and the necessary permissions. A generous double bedroom tucked away quietly at the back of the building, overlooking the neighbouring gardens, and the family bathroom complete the rooms on the first floor. Upstairs is the second comfortable double bedroom and the study/single bedroom, which is perfect for use as a nursery, home office or dressing room and could also be converted into a second bathroom if required.
Within a ten-minute stroll down the road, the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offers cracking nightlife and a plethora of eateries. In the other direction is everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and convenient transport links. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station) and the Overground at Clapham High Street Station. The bars and restaurants of up-and-coming Acre Lane are also on the doorstep.
