Clapham's Hidden Gem

The London village within 20 minutes of the city

Based in the heart of Clapham, the Abbeville Village is a secluded London village only 20 minutes from central London on the Northern line.

Tucked away behind Clapham Common Southside, the village has an array of sought after terraced homes and apartments, perfect for families and young professionals alike. Centred around Abbeville Road, a tree lined Victorian market street, you will find independent shops, restaurants and a pub with a warm community feel.

Some of the best local businesses are Nue Ground, a coffee shop with a yoga studio attached, Macfarlane’s - a delicatessen, and 'The Abbeville' a village pub with a warm country feeling at heart, famous in the area. If you were to walk through the centre on a typical Saturday afternoon, the area is thriving with a diverse array of people, and an inclusive community atmosphere.

"The Abbeville Village is a hidden gem in south west London, and a location that has drawn families to the area for years", says Rory Crawford-Drake Director at Dexters Clapham. "Everyone knows everyone, and you can be sure that you will be welcomed to the area with open arms." Moreover, the local amenities remain excellent, with schools in the village, and a great array of transport routes, including Clapham South and Clapham Common stations being equidistant as well as a number of bus routes.


The two bedroom home above, situated on Elms Road is a fantastic example of a large Abbeville garden flat, with a full side return extension. This property was launched at £1,200,000, and was quickly bought by a young couple looking for more space to start a family.

The Clapham office have also recently been instructed on an extended family home, with a fully fitted basement on Rodenhurst Road, one of two roads in the Abbeville Village that have much wider and larger proportioned homes. The property comes equipped with off-street parking and a much larger than usual garden. Clapham has also seen an exponential rise in offers agreed in the wider area of Clapham, where the market is both strong for sellers and landlords.

On the lettings side, there remains a strong uptake on both apartments and houses alike. Clapham has always been an incredibly popular neighbourhood to live in, with its close proximity to the city, and with the added bonus of more open space for recreational activities.
