Fulham has a cosmopolitan mix of families, young professionals and older couples, all of whom enjoy the vibrant lifestyle this sought-after area has to offer.

Surrounding Area

  • Parsons Green
    One of the most sought-after areas in Fulham, this central location is arranged around the triangular green and the larger Eel Brook Common to the east. Many boutiques, coffee shops and pubs are scattered throughout Parsons Green, giving the area its buzzy atmosphere with plenty to explore.
  • Sands End
    Sands End, east of Wandsworth Bridge Road, is known for its industrial history and is full of pretty Victorian terraced houses, many of which have scope for development. Once cut off from public transport, Imperial Wharf Railway Station has improved access to this previously quiet corner of Fulham.
  • Peterborough Estate
    One of the most desirable areas in Fulham, the Peterborough Estate is known for its Red Brick Nicolson ‘Lion Houses’ and tree lined streets. Named after the sandstone lions that sit on their gable ends, these houses were built in the late 1800’s, on the southern side of the New Kings Road, only a stone’s throw away from Eel Brook Common and Parsons Green.
  • Munster Village
    Munster Village is situated north of Fulham Road. As well as its antique shops, organic coffee shops, restaurants and florists, Munster Village is a sought-after neighbourhood with handsome Victorian and Edwardian homes.
  • The Alphabet Streets
    A Ladder of streets off the west of Fulham Palace Road, named in alphabetical order from south to north, hence why locals call the area ‘The Alphabet Streets’. These homes are typically larger than those found in Munster Village and have generous gardens. With the close proximity to Bishops Park, the river walks to Hammersmith and Putney Bridge, this area is incredibly popular with young families.
