The facilities and amenities you need might be completely different to what another household needs to live a successful life.

We provide a bespoke property service

This is why Holmes Estates takes the time to get to know you. Whether you are buying or selling a home, letting or renting, we take the time to find out what you want and need.

Of course, we have areas we are more than happy to recommend. We also stay in touch with the latest reviews and results from property market observers.

This is why we note The Times has announced Crystal Palace is the best place to live in London.

Helen Davies, property editor of The Times and Sunday Times, said: “The Sunday Times Best Places to Live list is necessarily subjective. Leave it just to statistics and you will never capture the spirit of a place. For that, you need to visit to take into account that ‘you have to be here’ feeling. Is the pub dog-friendly, for example? Can you live car-free? What are the schools and houses like? Is it multicultural and multigenerational, and can it offer a good way of life to lots of different sorts of people?”

There is no denying that areas like Crystal Palace show what South London has to offer. The Sunday Times said this about the location; “A glow is coming back to this “village”-like location with its parks, period mansions, cool cafés, indie shops, strong schools (three outstanding primaries and three outstanding secondaries) and panoramic city views.”

Given what we have all endured in recent years, it is no surprise that people are yearning for something simpler in life. The greenery and slightly removed feel from London helps people to feel perfectly at home in this part of the capital.

Transport is straightforward in this part of London

A significant reason why people love this area is because transport is simple. In around 20 minutes, Crystal Palace residents can be at London Bridge, while if you are heading towards London Victoria Station, you can manage the trip in less than 30 minutes.

The South West of London appeals too

The review also mentioned two parts of South West London that are worth considering.

Richmond has a great deal to enjoy, and if you love meeting friends for a coffee, this is a place you will feel right at home. There is also stunning architecture and plenty of river walks to enjoy.

Wimbledon was also cited as a place to consider. Again, an abundance of coffee shops was deemed worth mentioning, but it is the transport options that really stand out in this part of the capital.

If you need a base which allows you to make your way from A to B and C, or maybe even D or Z, you can do so with ease from Wimbledon.
