Cultural Clapham attracts London’s young professional buyers

Clapham life is well suited to the next generation of home buyers looking to settle down with a vibrant and cultured London property market that ticks the boxes.

With an average resident age of 31 and four distinct areas: Clapham North, Clapham Old Town, Clapham South and Clapham Junction, Clapham is a vibrant and cultured London property market that attracts young families and professionals.

Clapham life is well suited to the younger generation looking to settle down. In recent years, a noticeable trend of homeowners selling and buying again in Clapham has increased, and the continuous development of Clapham High Street is a major pull factor for those already living in Clapham and prospective buyers.
