Living in Putney

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.

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! Our Putney estate agents shared their recommendations on what to do in Putney on our blog. 

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!).

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.

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!

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).

He was very helpful from the first day and explained to me the process I had to go through, answered all my questions and gave me advice on practical things. Not once he was late replying to my emails or answering the phone. Thank you Alex - great service! totally recommend this agency to anyone who's looking to rent in that area.

Why now is the best time for first time buyers

A lack of activity from both buyers and sellers at present means that, whereas sellers aren’t in the best possible position at present, people looking to buy property are actually at an advantage, if they’re willing to look around and wait for the right deal. Here’s a run down of the current climate with a short introduction to economics.
