If you are new to Wimbledon or explaining local possibilities then here are five streets that we recommend you focus your attention upon. From the rarefied air of Clifton Road to the value for money proposition along Worple Road there should be something here for everyone. Our local bloggers here at Wimbledon Flats have but together the top 5 flat hunting streets in Wimbledon.

Hartfield Road
This street is a matter of just a few yards from the Village High Street, connecting Ridgway and Lingfield Road. It also happens to be extremely desirable, packed full of one and two bedroom flats to rent and buy in attractive converted Victorian houses. It’s also remarkably quiet and friendly. The only downside is that parking can be problematic if the flat doesn’t come with its off-street parking facility. On the upside, being directly opposite Tesco Express means that convenience is a way of life.

Woodside
Woodside runs from Wimbledon Hill to Leopold Road and is therefore the geographic and pricing compromise between the more upmarket Village and the more budget-oriented Town Centre parts of Wimbledon. A vast number of desirable properties can be found here either in mansion blocks close to Wimbledon town centre or a combination of Victorian and contemporary houses nearer Leoplod Road. Because most of the traffic heading east towards Wandsworth travels along Alexandra Road, Woodside is consequently fairly quiet and thoroughly worth consideration.

Worple Road
Worple Road probably contains the largest number of flats in Wimbledon, primarily in modern purpose built blocks. It runs from Raynes Park to Wimbledon and as such is the main thoroughfare linking Wimbledon with the A3 and Kingston-Upon-Thames. It is thererefore the busiest road in Wimbledon and has the added distinction of running parallel to the main line railway. The road is however served by an excellent bus service, most properties contain double-glazing and it is generally cheaper than other roads in the vicinity.

Clifton Road
If you want to live within yards of Wimbledon Common, some great pubs like the Hand In Hand and The Fox And Grapes and still be within walking distance of the town centre then check out Clifton Road. Here you will find two developments of two bedroom purpose built apartments with balcones and a couple of more traditional low rise apartment blocks. You should also find most properties come with off-street parking which is a major bonus. Clifton Road is a quiet side street whose only fault is providing a side entrance to King’s College School which means that traffic from 8am for twenty minutes each morning during term time is ugly.

Wimbledon Hill Road
If your key criteria is proximity to Wimbledon Station within a modern purpose-built apartment block then we suggest you take a Google tour of Wimbledon Hill Road. Although the road which connects the Town Centre with the Village is only eight hundred metres long it contains nine apartment blocks including some extremely desirable ultra modern properties and some spectacular penthouses. The added bonus if you have a daughter is that Wimbledon High School is sat at the bottom of the hill, no more than three minutes from the top.

To view the properties in any of these streets use Google Street maps.
