Roehampton has a real mix of properties, with three main areas of premium homes, with a mixture of quality semi-detached homes and large detached houses. For fresh air, countryside and proximity to central London, Roehampton really is the place to live.
Home to Roehampton University, the first UK higher education institution to admit women, this leafy area close to Putney, Barnes and Richmond offers good value for buyers.
If you like wide-open spaces, Roehampton is a good choice. It is within easy reach of Richmond Park as well as Barnes, Putney and Wimbledon Commons. For sports, the Roehampton Club offers tennis, golf, croquet and a health club with a gym and indoor and outdoor pool. Richmond Park’s golf courses are also close by.
Roehampton is within walking distance of Barnes and Putney, and all the shops, cafes and restaurants to be found in these popular areas, as well as their good transport links. Nearby East Putney is on the District Line and Barnes and Putney stations are on the South West Trains network, getting you to Waterloo in around 20 minutes. The A3 is also easily accessible for trips out of London by car.
There is a mix of housing in the area, from flats and cottages to the impressive detached properties to be found in the most prestigious roads, such as Priory Lane and Roedean Crescent. Grade 1-listed Roehampton House, previously part of Queen Mary’s Hospital, was recently converted into luxury properties. The Dover House conservation area with its 1920s homes is also popular.
The area’s schools include Barnes and All Saints CofE and Mosaic Jewish primaries – all outstanding. Sacred Heart Catholic and Granard primaries are both rated good.

Apart from education other notable institutions based here include: The Priory Clinic; the Bank of England Sports Centre; Rosslyn Park Rugby Football Club; and the Roehampton Club. The International Tennis Federation moved to Roehampton from Baron’s Court in 1998, and in 2007 the Lawn Tennis Association made the same short journey across London to their newly built headquarters next door to the ITF.
Roehampton has the best green spaces in London
Roehampton is surrounded by countryside yet is only 6 miles from central London.
It is enclosed by four magnificent open spaces: To the west is Richmond Park, with its wild deer; to the north is Barnes Common, and the Wetland Centre; to the east is Putney Heath; and, finally to the south is Wimbledon Common. Living in Roehampton means that you are never more than one mile from an outstanding area of natural beauty. All have plenty of parking, so they are simple to get to.
Nearby villages and towns
Roehampton maybe surrounded by countryside, but it close to some famous towns. It is within driving distance to Barnes village, Wimbledon village, and both Putney and Richmond, which are by the River Thames.
A university village
It is a little-known fact that Roehampton houses two universities. There is the University of Roehampton, set in grounds on the high street, which is split into four colleges, akin to the Oxford and Cambridge model. There is also Kingston University at Roehampton Vale, one of the top universities in the UK.
The Jewel in the Crown
The stunning Royal Richmond Park, with its rustic countryside, is Roehampton’s best feature. This is borne out by the hundreds of wild deer that live within the confines of the park. The deer, from small does to large rutting stags form a magical backdrop to a beautiful piece of countryside. The park has been designated as a site of special scientific interest and a national nature reserve
World class sport is all around Roehampton, as it is just a couple of miles from the All England Lawn Tennis Club that hosts the Wimbledon championships annually. A ten-minute cab ride will take you to the famous gates of the grounds of the All England club. A ten-minute cab ride will take you to the famous gates of the grounds of the All England club, where the championships take place at the end of June into July each year.
The other famous sporting occasion starts in Putney; the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. You can stand toe to toe with the rowers as they take their vessels from the boathouse in Putney to the river, before they row 4 miles to the west at Mortlake.
Also, only five miles away is the famous Twickenham stadium, the home of English rugby, where you can watch all the top international sides play against England. If you are a soccer fan, then Fulham and Chelsea football clubs are less than 4 miles away, too – all an easy taxi ride.
