Crescent Lane is a beautiful treelined street close to Clapham Common. Properties are mainly flats converted from delightful converted Victorian terraces, in immaculate condition. In addition to the period conversions, there’s also a good selection of three or four bedrooms houses with a high percentage of owner occupiers. The white picket fences and immaculate front gardens with stylish bay window shutters help the overall appearance of the street. The conversion to flats has been done with great care and many of the properties retain their original features such as large bay windows, fireplaces and tall ceilings.
For more practical considerations, the street only allows permit holders to park Monday to Friday, 10am to midday, which means commuters are put off using this street and there is space for residents to park with a permit. However many residents use Clapham Common tube which is just 5 minute walk away and the many bus routes to get about mostly.
Full of young professionals and couples this is a friendly neighbourhood and being located so close to the Common attracts keen runners and cyclists who benefit from the large open space of Clapham Common. For those with a family this is also a great option with St Mary’s Roman Catholic Primary School located on the street, but neatly tucked away so not to cause too much disruption to local residents. Generally buyers seem to stay in the area once they have experienced this lovely part of south London.
The street is only a few minutes walk to Clapham High Street for all your local amenities, as well as great bars and restaurants. Providing the both of best worlds, Crescent Lane is tucked far enough away from the busier roads to provide a quiet haven but close even to make that quick trip to the supermarket or last minute catch up over a glass of wine with a friend conveniently close by. A street which is extremely popular and ever increasing in value, this is a great place to live.
