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!

 - James Anderson

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.

    Our journey with James Anderson was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We began searching with the Putney office but ended up falling in love with a property in East Sheen. The transition in staff was seamless and we knew we were in safe hands for what became a long and stressful property purchase! Michael and the team were unbelievably great at keeping us in the loop for our triple chain buy - thanks to them we got there in the end and we couldn't be happier! We cannot recommend James Anderson enough - we've worked with a lot of agencies across the UK and these guys really stand out. Thank you!!

    When looking for properties I found that Miles from James Anderson went totally above and beyond in helping us in our search. Professional, reliable and tuned in to our needs and requirements. Could not recommend highly enough.

    I had a great experience working with Phoebe and the James Anderson team. They helped me let my property quickly and professionally. I was kept in the loop throughout the process and was given consistent updates and guidance. Thanks so much for your hard work.

    Absolutely professional service from start to finish. House was sold in one day after a very well planned open day. Special thanks to Evren for his hard work and professionalism throughout the whole process.

Make the most of your garden all year round

As we are officially in winter, we typically spend less time in our outside spaces. But now more than ever, Brits are looking for new ways to make the most of their gardens all year round.

With these tips, you can make your garden look and feel more inviting for the colder months, whether you decide to brave the cold or not!

Keep those green fingers busy

You wouldn’t assume you can work on your gardening skills in December, but we have just the thing for our keen gardeners out there.

Are you looking to brighten up your drive or balcony? Why not plant the following shrubs to add a splash of colour:

  • Holly: a Christmas favourite. Choose a female variety to get the bright red berry.

TIP: why not try a self-fertile variety such as Ilex aquifolium ‘JC van Tol’ to guarantee you a crop.

  • Spindle euonymus europaeus: plant these bright pink lantern-shaped flowers to liven up your doorway.
  • Crab apple: varieties such as Malus x robusta Red Sentinel burst with gorgeous red fruits all the way through to January, so get planting.

Make it cosy!

Even if you have only a balcony or a small patio garden, you must still utilise it! If you have a larger garden, then focus on warming just a small, more intimate area rather than tackling the whole space.

To better that, add shelter to shield you from the cold nights and lights to enhance a cosy atmosphere by creating strong shadows, framing your designated winter garden beautifully.

Repurpose old cushions and throws

You don’t need to have designated furniture for outdoor use only. Grab some spare cushions, throws and blankets that you already own and repurpose them for the garden.

Don’t leave them outside, have a basket that you bring out with you when you do happen to sit outside.

Have you thought about a fire pit?

Having a fire pit will be sure to get everyone using your garden during winter. You can find a wide variety of firepits suitable for all garden sizes.

Firepits have many great benefits. They keep you warm and create opportunities for fun activities for your family like roasting marshmallows.

Entice the wildlife

Plants are great ways to add colour to your winter garden, but have you ever had a beautiful robin or a goldfinch spread their wings in your outside space?

Invest in a bird bath to entice birds in.

Birds need water for drinking and to clean their feathers, especially in the winter months when most water sources may be frozen over. Make sure the bath is no deeper than 5cm deep and add stones or gravel for some grip.

Adding bird feeds around your outside space will also bribe these beautiful birds around your home.
