Property in East Sheen

Bordering the Thames, East Sheen is surrounded by the stunning open spaces of Richmond Park, and enjoys a vibrant High Street scene of independent stores and cafés. But despite the hustle and bustle that defines many London locations, East Sheen still maintains a lovely village feel which belies its proximity to Central London. This can be seen in the various period properties and wholesome activities on offer in the area – see for yourself!

East Sheen and its own land

In the 13th century, the Richmond area used to be called Sheen or Shene, and East Sheen was the designated area east of Richmond – hence the name. But why is there no ‘West Sheen’? When Henry VII built the Richmond Palace, Sheen became known as Richmond, and East Sheen got left on its own – a nice reminder of ancient times. Nowadays, East Sheen is part of the Mortlake district and its borders are difficult to define. East Sheen is broadly the area south of the Upper Richmond Road, but opinions differ as to where Mortlake starts and where East Sheen ends. But never mind that – more about the properties and the wonderful amenities!

Residential properties

Architecturally, East Sheen boasts an eclectic mix of residential properties, from pretty Georgian cottages to statuesque Edwardian villas, post-war apartment blocks to contemporary luxury developments. In essence, whatever style or size of property you’re searching for, you’re likely to find it here. And we’re likely to have it on offer, so please keep us in mind!

Pubs, restaurants and retail therapy

East Sheen is known for having some of the best bars and restaurants in West London, as well as independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Londoners are known to flock here for a taste of village-in-the-city life alongside a few drinks and a wholesome meal. The Hare & Hounds has a popular beer garden that becomes very popular on warm summer evenings, and local pubs The Victoria and The Plough both offer great food and a convivial atmosphere. The High Street features a pleasant mix of cafés and bars of both the chain and the independent variety. The same applies to the local retailers, meaning that there’s something for everyone – young families and single professionals alike. Sandrine Chocolates is a must for all cocoa aficionados, and there are a surprising number of cycle shops for city commuters with a distaste for the underground.

The Royal Park

Richmond Park, the largest of all London’s Royal Parks, dominates the local landscape and offers residents of East Sheen superlative views over the city. Brimming with parkland and woodland gardens, it has been designated a National Nature Reserve and contains the stunning Pen Ponds and Isabella Plantation. The park is famous for its attractive (and often rare) wildlife, with populations of Fallow and Red deer wandering freely and bringing a certain fairy-tale charm to the park. Yes, it goes without saying, but this makes it a perfect destination for leisurely weekend rambles and summer picnics.

 - James Anderson

Sporting clubs and activities

The Thames and East Sheen’s surrounding green spaces play host to a variety of sporting venues and community clubs. Richmond Park is home to The Royal Ballet School’s ‘White Lodge’, whilst Palewell Common hosts the Sheen Lions Football Club and Kids Works, with the latter running a variety of sports projects and events for local children throughout the year. Sheen Lawn Tennis and Squash club and The Roehampton Club also offer top-notch sporting facilities in Roehampton, where you will also find the Bank of England Club and the headquarters of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). The area caters for most sporting interests, from golf and fishing to rowing and weekend fitness ‘boot camps’.

Education, education, education

East Sheen’s local schools have an excellent reputation. It is becoming increasingly common for families to relocate to the area simply to improve their chances of gaining places for their children. Primary Schools of distinction are Thomson House and Sheen Mount, both of which have been graded outstanding by Ofsted, with the local Tower House School also boasting an excellent reputation. Other schools of note in the area include St Paul’s and The Swedish School, both in Barnes, as well as The German School in nearby Richmond. Rest assured, your kids will be in safe hands if you move to East Sheen.

 - James Anderson

Transport & travel

East Sheen is well connected to Central London, with trains from Mortlake and North Sheen Stations taking just over 20 minutes to arrive at Waterloo. The local underground train service stops at Richmond, where District Line trains can be accessed, and there are excellent local bus services to Hammersmith, Putney and Richmond.

    Excellent experience. Jack was exceptionally responsive, professional and most importantly patient. Jack understands the journey from both the buyer's and seller's perspective and is honest and realistic regarding sales and pricing whilst negotiating the best deal for his clients . Jack knows the market on the river roads and surrounding area very well. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to sell in West Putney.

    Walked into James Anderson looking for a rental property. The agent who helped us was called Miles Morgan who was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Miles was able to help us find a property to our exact specifications on the same day which we put down an immediate deposit down.

    We recently rented our property using James Anderson. Leigh was fantastic - responding quickly to my questions and making sure the whole process ran smoothly. He has guided us in legal and practical aspects of becoming tenants. Leigh went over and above what was expected in order to secure us a tenant we could feel comfortable with. I would not hesitate to use James Anderson again in the future or to recommend their services to family and friends.

    All staff that I had interactions with were very efficient and professional. Very happy with the whole service, I would definitely recommend James Anderson in the future to family and friends.

Investing in property? Here are our top tips!

With high demand for property driving up house prices and rents across the country, now is a great time for new or established landlords to ride the wave by investing. But where should you start, and how can you improve your chances of a respectable return? Read on to find out.

Choose your location

Ideally, it’s sensible to invest in an area within a manageable radius of your current location. This will allow you to visit the property easily, complete any necessary improvements, or keep an eye on contractors. If you live nearby, you’re also more likely to know which streets and neighbourhoods are the most desirable, helping you identify golden opportunities as soon as they arise.

Once you’ve settled on a general area, spend some time researching the current market conditions, including the average local rent and sale price for the type of property you’re interested in buying.

Hint: A trusted local agent like ourselves can advise you on this.

Identify potential ways to add value

While searching for the perfect rental, consider ways you could improve a property to make it more appealing to your ideal tenant. Could you add an extra bedroom or a home office by converting the loft? Is the property worth renovating to bring it in line with more high-end lets? This is where your market research will come into its own.

Other ways to increase profit may include selling off additional land a tenant won’t need or splitting up a building into apartments. Just make sure you obtain advice from a relevant professional before you invest.

Decide on funding

Yes, opportunities are endless for cash buyers, but if you have the minimum deposit (usually 25%), a buy-to-let mortgage can help you achieve your dreams. The maximum you can borrow is linked to the rental income you expect to receive, which should be 25–30% higher than your mortgage payment. Specialist lenders may also provide a bridging loan to cover the cost of renovations while you get the property up-to-scratch.

Beyond these top tips, our property experts are always on hand to help.
