Why Move to Streatham?
The busy residential suburb of Streatham has seen many changes over the years.
It lies mostly within the London Borough of Lambeth, with some parts extending into the neighbouring London Borough of Wandsworth.
Streatham historically was a staging post between London and Brighton. But it has also been a spa resort, due to the healing powers of the water from wells found in the area.
In later history, with the onset of the railway during the mid-1800’s it has continued to grow from a village into the wonderfully diverse place it is today.
Having once been labelled as having the capital’s worst high street, following a multimillion-pound investment from the Mayor’s Outer London Fund and Lambeth Council, Streatham has totally transformed itself into a very sought-after well-heeled location.
Now among one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse neighbourhoods in London, Streatham encompasses large green spaces, three railway stations offering easy access to central London, and has an active and committed local community.
The three railway stations ferry residents in and out of the capital with multiple services per hour and the A23 offers easy access for drivers wanting to reach the South Coast.
Gatwick Airport is just 50 minutes away and the M25 a 40-minute journey, transport connections could not be better.
Famous residents who have all seen the positives of a home in Streatham include model Naomi Campbell, fashion designer John Galliano, Sarah Beeny, television presenter, Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London and Roger Moore, actor, plus loads more!
