Types of property in Wimbledon Village

Between the time Novak Djokovic picked up his second and third Wimbledon men’s singles titles in 2014 and 2015, the average price of a house in the Village had risen just under £1.4m – by far the most expensive of the four tennis Grand Slam locations.

In his autobiography, 1985 Wimbledon champion Boris Becker – who has lived in a £7m mansion close to All-England Club for six years – claimed his celebrity status has helped raise property prices in Wimbledon Village.

Wimbledon Village is where town meets country. Its attractions include Wimbledon Common, good restaurants and pubs and the fact it is not crowded or built up. There is also a golf course, two riding stables.

At the same time, the excellent transport links on offer at Wimbledon Station mean you can be at Waterloo station in about 25 minutes, while Wimbledon is also within easy reach of the Surrey countryside.

The Village Life

The most desirable homes in the Village are the five- and six-bed Victorian and Edwardian properties bordering the common. Other sought-after locations include Marryat Road, Burghley Road, Lingfield Road and Lancaster Road, where detached homes are worth in the region of £5m. Meanwhile, Parkside has only recently lost its title as the UK’s most expensive street.

While the Village’s property portfolio contains an array of £20m-plus mansions complete with swimming pools, tennis courts and other luxury facilities, large detached villas, and charming period cottages, lower down the value chain are artisan cottages, interwar semis, period terraces, 1960s townhouses and retro-style flats.

Commercial property in & around Wimbledon Village

Part of Wimbledon Village’s appeal to residential buyers is its range of high-end shops that include independent traders, such as Pet Pavilion and cycle dealer Smith Brothers, and boutique shops and cafes, including fashion chains Reiss and Jack Wills, designer homewares brand Cath Kidson and tile supplier Fired Earth.

Like Robert Holmes & Co – which has been established in Wimbledon Village since 1987 – many traders have a long history in this part of London. However, there is a steady stream of commercial properties that become available in the Village. In 2014, a 700sq ft (65sq m) retail premises next to the popular Fire Stables bar and restaurant was let out, while artisan bakery Gail’s opened a pop-up café on the High Street in May 2015 before the premises underwent refurbishment three months later.

One of the largest commercial establishments in the neighbourhood is Cannizaro House – a Georgian mansion that has been refurbished into a Hotel du Vin. Located in 34 acres of Cannizaro Park and adjacent to Wimbledon Common, the luxury hotel – which was first built in 1819 – offers a range of dining options, together with six meeting rooms.

But large-scale office blocks and multi-level superstores are not on offer in the Village. This is largely because it has been designated a conservation area, which means permission for new commercial developments will only be granted if the buildings contribute to the area’s character.

We have a selection of prestigious properties up to £17m being sold discreetly but are not shown on our website. For details call us on:
