London Square Earlsfield: The best-performing neighbourhood in Wandsworth

Located in the beating heart of Southwest London’s Borough of Wandsworth, Earlsfield is a community-first neighbourhood, shaping to be an exciting prospect for residents and property investors alike. With a 3.2% CAGR recorded for three or more bed houses over the last decade, this popular residential haven has outperformed growth in the local area across property types. So, what exactly makes Earlsfield such a magnet for residents and one of the top places to live in the UK capital?

London Square Earlsfield

Large green spaces to enjoy nature

Large green spaces

Earlsfield is a top choice for families and nature lovers as it provides plenty of outdoor opportunities. At the heart of London Square’s brand-new development is the 32-acre Springfield Park, where residents can enjoy leisure walks, high-octane sports facilities, entertainment options and cosy wetlands. From community gardens to cafes, playgrounds and more, the park will serve as a key attraction for all residents. However, that’s not all, as London Square Earlsfield is also well-positioned to benefit from several other major parks and commons in the area, such as the Wandsworth Common, Tooting Bec Common, Clapham Common and Putney Heath, which are within a two-mile radius.

Superb connectivity to central London and beyond

Despite being a Zone 3 neighbourhood, Earlsfield is well-connected to different parts of the city via multiple railway lines. While Wimbledon is just four minutes away via Earlsfield Station on the South Western Railway line, Waterloo is less than 15 minutes away. Similarly, residents can reach London Bridge on the Northern Line via Tooting Bec Station in 18 minutes and King’s Cross St Pancras in 20 minutes. Battersea Park and London Victoria are also a few minutes away via Wandsworth Common Station on the Southern Railway line.

These quick connectivity options contribute to the above-average rental and property demand in Earlsfield, as 32% of all London jobs, including 60% of all financial and insurance jobs, are within a half-hour commute from home. For those travelling further afield, London Gatwick Airport is just 30 minutes away, while London City Airport is reachable in less than 45 minutes.

Premium education and retail opportunities

With a collection of top-ranked schools in the neighbourhood, London Square has ensured families with children have access to high-quality education. While six of the 21 primary schools and three of the nine secondary schools in Earlsfield have an ‘Outstanding’ rating by Ofsted, Emmanuel School, ranked 6th nationally among all the co-ed independent schools in the UK, is just over a mile away.

With a thriving social scene and abundant retail outlets, Earlsfield provides a refreshing blend of cosmopolitan lifestyle amidst an eclectic collection of diners and entertainment venues. Whether it’s a lip-smacking sourdough pizza at Well Kneaded Pizzeria or the delicious cuts of Roxie Steakhouse, the area has plenty of top-notch dining options. While a supermarket is coming soon at Springfield Village, the local Tesco and Sainsbury’s outlets are just a short stroll away.

Rental yields of up to 6.5%

With nearly 65% of Earlsfield’s resident population under the age of 40 and 55% of households being single-family homes, the surrounding area and postcodes attract high rental demand from professionals working in the City and Westminster. According to Dataloft’s rental market analytics, average monthly rents for a studio apartment around Earlsfield start at £1,430 and go upwards of £3,000 for larger three-bedroom homes.

With such attractive rental incomes, landlords in the area enjoy a potential gross yield of anything between 4.3% and 6.5%. Another leading property agency expects rents to increase by 5.5% in 2024, with a cumulative growth of over 18% in the next four years.
