Cedars Road itself is 0.3 miles long and connects Clapham Common to Queenstown Road and Battersea. At the southern end to the road are two imposing and impressive Victorian mansion blocks, these two grand buildings are home to several flats and penthouses. To the rear of the mansion blocks are two rows of coach houses, each are now four bedroom homes with good sized rear gardens. The majority of properties are set back from the road and are predominately council owned freeholds with the odd row of Victorian houses and conversions. To the northern end of the road you'll see the old stables, which have also been converted, this time into a mews of elegant houses. Opposite the old stables, you'll find an Italian Coffee shop, more commonly known as Caffè Nero. The café is located on the crossroads where Cedars Road meets Queenstown Road, Lavender Hill and Wandsworth Road. Surrounding the crossroads are a large selection of shops and eateries, including some great home furnishing and home interior businesses.
Lambeth Council have recently (January 2016) carried out a huge overhaul of their stock, turning what were once quite ugly flats into modern and pleasing to the eye apartments. This has resulted in a lot of people moving to the area both as owner occupiers and tenants.
The road is also known as the A3216 and is home to three bus stops. Here you can catch a bus to Oxford Street (137) or to South Kensington (345). The N137 night bus also runs up and down the road driving between Oxford Circus and Crystal Palace Bus Station.
Four popular primary schools are within a short walk from the road, making it a great area for families who also want access to the vast green space of Clapham Common. The primary schools listed in no particular order are: Eaton House Manor School, Ecole de WIX Primary School, Macaulay Primary School and Parkgate House School.
With an almost even split between flats and houses, the road has a healthy mix of families and single occupants making it a friendly place to live.
