Victoria Rise has lots of elegant property to match its elegant name - most of which was built in the Victorian era. It also houses a large number of council owned flats, which until recently were not as pleasing to the eye as their older Victorian neighbours. Thankfully the local council has undergone a huge overhaul on their buildings, with newly rendered facades and a more contemporary look. This has increased the property values on the road for both the purpose-built properties and the period conversions, making it even more attractive to investors and potential purchasers.
The road itself is 0.4 miles long and connects Clapham Common to Lavender Hill. The majority of properties are residential buildings rather than commercial property, excluding the popular Macauley Church of England Primary School which is located half way along the road, Clapham Baptist Church and Cult Furniture shop with its eclectic array of designer chairs.
To the southern end of the road is No.2 Victoria Rise, a grand an imposing detached Victorian House. The four story property certainly stands out from its neighbours, and the owner has taken great pride in its outside appearance. The majority of Victorian properties on the roads have been converted in to one and two bed flats, some with private gardens and some with shared gardens.
Due to the high level of period conversions, the typical residents are mainly young professionals (owners and tenants) who want to benefit from the great transport links and from being just a short walk to the vast open space of Clapham Common. Queenstown Road is a short walk away, from which you'll have a choice of different shops and eateries including some superb home decor showrooms, independent cafes and bars. Lavender Hill is currently undergoing development, and the neighbouring roads are looking better and better as the work progresses. A new Premier Inn is also set to take the place of an old derelict building opposite the junction to Victoria Rise, so keep your eyes out for Lenny Henry!
