Living in Barnes

Barnes is something of a hidden jewel in London’s crown. Its historic streets are lined with fine architecture and English charm, which gives the area an unmistakable village vibe despite its location in the heart of SW London (with speedy links to the City, might we add). Excellent schools, gourmet cuisine, plenty of green space and a surprising sporting pedigree all give Barnes its reputation as a prime residential location in our capital. Learn more about the last true village in London below.

1066 and all that

Barnes first appeared in the Domesday Book of 1086, just twenty years after the Battle of Hastings, and some of its stunning Norman architecture remains intact – revel in the historic beauty of St Mary’s Church for evidence of Barnes’ centuries-long history. Barnes is also intricately linked to the Magna Carta, being the first port of call for Stephen Langton (the Archbishop of Canterbury at the time) after he signed the document in 1215. Barnes has need its fair share of notable residents too: Milbourne House was the one-time residence of Henry Fielding, the novelist and founder of London’s first police force. The iconic village pond and green date way back to the sixteenth century, and the more recent Barnes Railway Bridge, spanning the River Thames, is a glorious leviathan of Victorian engineering. And there’s plenty more history where that came from…

 - James Anderson

Georgian grandeur

Unsurprisingly for somewhere with so much historical pedigree, much of the town’s housing stock is period and of an excellent quality. It boasts some of the oldest riverside homes in London, complete with stunning Thames-side views, and deserves its reputation as a rival to Hampstead and Highgate for the title of “prettiest London village”.

 - James Anderson

Eat, drink…shop…and be merry

Barnes has a strong community feel, fuelled by its range of independent shops, cafés and restaurants. Indeed, a report in 2014 found that Barnes has the highest concentration of independent shops in the UK! There’s plenty to enjoy here: including cheese-buyer’s delight The Real Cheese Shop, fine wines and expert sommeliers over at Lea and Sandeman, and the Scandi-style lifestyle boutique, Nina. There’s also an M&S food hall – and who doesn’t love those? The weekends often usher in even more of an indie vibe, with the Saturday Farmers’ Market setting up camp by the village pond.

For the serious gourmet, there are some great local restaurants such as Riva, the Sun Inn with its beautiful terrace, Annie’s and a luxurious Rick Stein restaurant to boot. Increasingly, fusion experiences are springing up, such as Olympic Studios, with its restaurant downstairs and cinema above. You won’t be running out of things to do when living in Barnes, especially with new independent ventures popping up seemingly every week!

 - James Anderson

Green spaces

Barnes abounds with green spaces, making it perfect for young families. The Wetlands Centre is a hundred-acre project opened to mark the Millennium. It’s home to bird populations not found elsewhere in the capital, such as the beautifully-named Gadwall and Northern Shoveller – an ornithologist’s and rambler’s paradise, if that meets your fancy! The village pond and green are a natural recreational and social centre within the village. Barnes Common features acres of green space, and the stunning Richmond Park with its resident deer population is also close by. Great for family trips and moments of quiet contemplation away from the bustle of the city.

 - James Anderson

Sporting pedigree

History in Barnes is not limited to its architecture. A former master of St Paul’s School, Richard Mulcaster, is credited with developing football into the game we play today, and Barnes Rugby Football Club claims to be one of the oldest sports clubs in the world. Then of course there’s the Varsity Boat Race, an event made more exciting by the fact that the Barnes shoreline offers some of the best views of the battling blues.

 - James Anderson

Education for all

Barnes boasts some of the best independent and state schools in London, with many of the state schools having outstanding Ofsted ratings. James Anderson supports the excellent Thomson House School, a free school founded in 2014. Renowned independent schools include The Harrodian School, St Paul’s, Ibstock Place and Tower House School, in addition to a range of highly-rated nursery and prep schools in the area.

 - James Anderson

How do I get there?

Waterloo and Central London are thirty minutes away on trains departing from Barnes and Barnes Bridge Station, both of which are located in zone 3. The underground at Hammersmith is easily accessed in a 20 minute bus ride.

    One of the best agents I have came across. Very professional and they go extra miles to find your dream property. They understand your requirements and will propose suitable properties and will persistently keep you updated. Highly recommended agents in South West London.

    Miles was my main contact at James Anderson. During my search he was always friendly and polite. He kept me updated on new properties onto the market and I really felt he was working for me, to find the best his company could offer. He was professional, made contact when he said he would and displayed exemplary customer service. Thank you Miles - your dedication to my search was greatly appreciated.

    We recently sold our house in Sheen via Michael, supported by Alex and Evren. Michael was exceptionally good. His energy, realism and attention to detail were first class. and he provided excellent advice and support through the process. Information of any significance was always reported to us without delay. We lost our first buyer after the survey but Michael and the team did everything to ensure we found another buyer very quickly indeed. I'd recommend him highly and would certainly choose to engage him again.

    The purchase experience was far from smooth as the vendor struggled to meet various deadlines and requests. However, throughout the whole process, Graham in the Barnes office remained supportive, professional and very helpful in pushing this over the line. Would certainly recommend Graham and everyone in the Barnes office to anyone considering either a purchase or sale.

    I dealt with Fatima at JA. She provided an excellent service from start to completion. She was competing against another local agent and she secured an excellent (winning) offer. Where she excelled was her commitment to seeing the chain complete. Her tenancity and ongoing communication was impressive. We purchased through another local agent (begins with W) and the comparison between Fatima’s guidance and theirs was stark. Thanks Fatima.

Home improvements for this summer

Over the last 18 months, the number of Brits undertaking DIY projects and renovations has jumped significantly, as we found new ways to pass our time in lockdown and improve our living situations.

But, which home improvements have the biggest impact to your property’s value?

Extensions

Adding an extension is one of the most popular home improvement projects, adding up to 23% to your home’s sale price.*

In fact, in northern regions over 2020, there was a double digit increase in planning permission applications for extensions.

Garages

Adding a garage is a great way to expand your home.

Having a property with secure parking can lower the price of your car insurance policies, as opposed to on-street spaces, whilst making your home more attractive to buyers.

Loft conversions

Loft conversions are a brilliant way of creating extra space out of an area that is rarely used, whilst contributing an additional 20% in value to your property’s price.*

Due to COVID-19, people are looking for space for home offices.

A loft conversion is the perfect solution!

Conservatories

One of the great advantages of building a conservatory is that planning permission is more straightforward.

It also adds around 5% to the value of your house.*

Outbuildings and sheds

Green space has become massively important to us.

Having an outdoor space that can be used for storing gardening equipment or even as somewhere to relax is highly desirable.
