Fulham is a family friendly and affluent neighbourhood of London that is famed for its links to football, tennis and polo. This prime South West area has easy access to the business districts of the city and a wealth of green spaces which attracts young professionals and families alike.
Within Fulham there is a popular farmers market and a wide selection of independent shops, cafes and bars as well as the beautiful Bishop’s Park that houses a scenic lake, perfect for weekend strolls.
There are many Victorian houses dotted around the area including the highly sought-after Lion Houses on Fulham’s prestigious Peterborough Estate that were built in 1899 and were given their nickname due to the decorative terracotta lions that sit proudly on the gables.
Despite a uniform consistency for Edwardian and Victorian stylings of property in the area, there is a wide range of property available for those moving to Fulham. The Victorian terraced houses, such as the Lion Houses, are highly sought after because of their size and generous gardens that is not usually seen in central London.
Sitting just a stone's throw away from the classical architecture of the terraced houses are a small handful of new developments including Imperial Wharf, North End Road and the former trading estate in Farm Lane, which has recently been demolished to make way for 40 new townhouses.
Not only are the Victorian and Edwardian houses of Fulham beautiful on the outside, a quick browse on the property hunting websites confirm that they are also tastefully decorated, well looked after and renovated, making them an absolute pleasure to live in and worth the investment.
According to property website RightMove, the most popular type of property in Fulham over the last year has been flats, which have been selling for an average of £760,216. Whereas, the famed terraced houses are closer to the £1.5m mark, although these still sit under the average selling price of £2m for a semi-detached house in Fulham. Whereas, the rental market is very diverse and swings from studio apartments for as little as £320 a week to £1,775 per week for a 5 bed house.
There are plenty of reasons to move to Fulham, from its ornate Victorian and Edwardian houses to its beautiful river walks and London’s only urban beach (at Bishop’s Park). Not to mention it’s convenient access to the business districts of the city. If you are moving to Fulham as a family, you will be pleased to know that some of the most highly sought-after schools in London are in the area, most notably Lady Margaret School for Girls and All Saints C of E Primary School.
