Putney London Real Estate

With its stunning open spaces and rich architectural history, Putney has the feel of an oasis within the capital; it’s easy to forget it is only a fifteen-minute commute to the heart of Central London. Putney’s thriving community feel, excellent schools and rich network of sporting clubs make it a great location for families, while its riverside pubs, quirky cafés, independent stores and cool restaurants attract a dynamic community of students and young city professionals.

 - James Anderson

A little bit of history…

There was a time when Putney was called Putelei or Putenhie, according to the Domesday Book of 1086. Fast-forward to 1855 and Putney is a part of the Wandsworth district of Surrey, soon to come under the new county of London in 1889. The first bridge between Putney and Fulham was built in the first year of the Civil War, 1642, about 500 yards downstream of the present bridge. But this bridge actually consisted of a line of boats – it was only in 1726 that the first permanent crossing was completed, becoming the second bridge across the Thames in London after London Bridge. Parking the boats elsewhere, this bridge had a wooden structure that lasted for 157 years.

Property profile

“Enough about bridges, what about houses?”… I hear you ask. Fans of historical architecture will not be disappointed! Putney’s rich history (dating back at least as far as the Normans) has resulted in an elegant and eclectic mix of stylish accommodation, encompassing Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian properties, as well as a few stand-out Art Deco buildings to boot. And that’s not to mention a range of contemporary houses and apartments. Whatever your preferred style, you’ll be more than likely to find it in this fascinating area – see for yourself!

Bars, pubs and restaurants

One of the great joys of living in Putney is the river walks. Dotted with pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants, this exciting section of the Thames will be right at your doorstep. The Duke’s Head and The Boathouse, amongst many local eateries, combine stunning views with great food, and The Half Moon hosts regular live music within its riverside gastro pub.

The High Street is buzzing with independent stores and cafes, giving Putney a real community feel. Pop into Ground Coffee Society for a riverside top-up of artisanal coffee (just follow to sweet smell of fresh beans), and follow up with some superb sushi at Sushi54 or antipasti at Enoteca Turi. All within a stones-throw of one another – oh, how we love local life in Central London! 

 - James Anderson

Parks and Recreation

For most Londoners, the amount of green space in and around Putney comes as a welcome surprise. The 400 acres of Putney Heath is infamous for seventeenth century dueling, but loved for its rolling mix of parkland, lakes and woodland – perfect for those long weekend runs and rambles or those lazy summer picnics. Wandsworth Park offers an equally elegant alternative of tree-lined paths and ornamental gardens, with the additional attraction of Putt in the Park mini golf for the kids (or those particularly excitable grown-ups!).

 - James Anderson

Battle of the blues

Putney comes to the world’s attention at least once a year as the launching point for the Varsity Boat Race, and throughout the year serves as the location of several rowing clubs on the Putney riverbank for rowers of all standards. There are also excellent golf and cricket clubs, namely the London Scottish Gold Club (the third oldest course in England) and Putney Cricket Club, which was founded way back in 1870. You may also fancy brushing up on your backhand in Wandsworth Park with the masterful help of All Star Tennis Coaching.

 - James Anderson

Education, education, education

Putney boasts a diverse range of quality local schools. Popular state primary schools include Our Lady of Victories, St Mary’s CE Primary School and Brandlehow Primary. In addition, there are two very highly-regarded Academy Schools: ARK Putney Academy and Ashcroft Technology Academy, and private school options include the excellent Putney High School for Girls and St Paul’s School for Boys. The only problem here is that you might be spoilt for choice!

 - James Anderson

Transport from Putney

Putney has some of the best commuter links in South West London, with the commute from Putney Station to Waterloo and Central London taking only fifteen minutes. Putney Bridge and East Putney tube stations offer a twenty-minute underground route to Piccadilly Circus. Furthermore, as with any part of London, the area is also served by numerous buses to all corners of the capital. If you’re looking for a more leisurely London commute, the River Bus ploughs the Thames all the way from Putney Pier to Canary Wharf – a lovely way to start your commute (at least in the summer). Find out just how well connected Putney is in our recent blog post.

    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.

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.
