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.

    James Anderson provided a great, professional service when searching for a new flat. Miles understood exactly what we were looking for and found something that suited our requirements and budget. He provided an easy and stress free approach to letting and we are looking forward to moving in shortly.

    From the listing to finding a buyer through a very tricky sales process and finally exchange - the guys at the James Anderson East Sheen office have been brilliant. Supportive and honest, nothing is ever too much effort or hassle for them. Thoroughly recommend if you're looking to sell.

    Fatima in James Anderson Sales in the Barnes Office went above and beyond during my buying process. Fatima is super-responsive, kept momentum with both solicitors, smoothed over any bumps in the conveyancing process and even drove over to drop off my new keys when I could not get to the office. Fatima was on top of all of the facts of the sale for both parties at all times and kept a great sense of humour through the entire buying process. She is a somewhat rare breed of estate agent; trustworthy, honest communication and integrity. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone selling or buying.

    I Recently leased a flat with James Anderson. The Property Manager Andrea is an absolute Joy! She is very efficient & makes light work of all correspondence! I have all confidence that I'm in great hands with them! 🌟

    Selling your house is traditionally and it would seem inherently stressful. Michael at James Anderson definitely makes it a lot less so with his efficient, professional and open approach. Unlike a lot of estate agents he doesn’t talk rubbish and is open about what is going on. He says it as it is, which is what you need. I recommend him!

Low cost changes to increase your home’s kerb appeal

Whether you are considering putting your property on the market or you are simply looking to increase the aesthetics of your front garden, there are a few low cost tips that can help you increase your home’s kerb appeal.

What to consider when upgrading your property’s exterior:

1. How much you’re willing to spend

Working out a budget will provide you with a clearer understanding as to what projects will be achievable.

If there is a limit to how much you want to spend on this area, prioritise the projects that you believe will make the most difference.

2. What are your main goals?

What are you looking to achieve from re-decorating? Are you interested in creating a green space outside your home or are you looking for practical solutions and storage options?

Painting your exterior adds 2-5% on your property’s sale value, so if you’re looking to move in the near future, it’s important to know where to focus your attention for the best returns.*

Have you considered these options?

Refresh your front door

Your front door is the most noticeable feature when entering a property, so it’s worth considering an upgrade if it’s peeling or looking tired.

Add your own design accessories

Door accessories, stylish house numbers, lights and retro flower pots are all on trend.

They are also very simple but effective ways of increasing the aesthetics of your front garden for any guests or prospective homebuyers!

Clear your garden

Last but not least, the lawn plays a key part in your home’s kerb appeal.

In fact, 67% of homeowners state that a tidy front garden would improve kerb appeal to them the most.**
