Two for one - what can £600,000 buy you in Clapham and Canterbury?

One budget, two postcodes; we look at the purchasing options in the city and in the countryside with our area price comparison of Clapham and Canterbury.

From a polished one-bed for young professionals to an ideal investment piece, there is a lot you can do with £600,000. We apply one budget to two sought-after postcodes: the spirited south London neighbourhood, Clapham, and the culturally dynamic hotspot that is Canterbury.



Clapham attracts visitors and potential home-owners from all over for its well-balanced nature: lively with bars and restaurants but laid back with cafes and the Common. Neighbouring Brixton and just across the river from Kensington and Chelsea, many young professionals choose to make this area their home, but that doesn’t stop families relocating here too. Primary schools in the area are especially good and it’s fairly common for families to relocate to be in a certain catchment area. Green spaces are plenty in Clapham, most notable being Clapham Common, but also nearby are Brockwell Park with its lido Wandsworth Common. The wider area is serviced by three underground stations, and the place has a constant buzz due in large part to the area’s burgeoning restaurant scene. Most of the sales in Clapham over the past year were flats which on average sold for £557,366, while the overall average price of £790,462 was more expensive than nearby Brixton (£550,134) and South Lambeth (£704,804).

1 bedroom flat in London

Property prices in Clapham can be fairly steep but for £600,000 will stand you in good stead to find your dream home. Right on the common and with one spacious bedroom, this flat is perfect for a young professional seeking independence. They’ll no doubt benefit from the close proximity to Clapham Common tube station and nearby cinema, shops and restaurants. Other highlights include a private garden and garage, storage, modern kitchen and bathroom and large reception room.

With three universities, a rich history and an impressive townscape, this quaint city has a lot to offer both residents and visitors. Situated close to the outstandingly beautiful Kent Downs, Canterbury seamlessly combines picturesque countryside landscapes with all the amenities of a small city, which makes modern living easy. Boasting a section of ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ schools, and convenient trains to St Pancras in less than an hour, Canterbury makes the ideal place for London families to relocate. The average house price in Canterbury in the past year was £338,228, so with a budget of £600,000 you could near enough buy two homes. However there is also a selection of beautiful period properties priced slightly higher but with historical touches that more than make up for it.
