Why move to Putney?

Putney is not, in fact, one area, but four, each with their own distinct character and charm. Thameside Putney is well-known as the home of the Oxford and Cambridge boat race. Lovers of period homes will be in heaven in West Putney which is made up of predominantly large Victorian villas. East Putney boasts an eclectic mix of period and modern architecture, which blends to create an attractive, lively and vibrant neighbourhood. And Putney Heath, boardered by Wimbledon Common and close to Richmond Park is so open and green it feels almost rural.

A little bit of history

There has been trading in the ancient parish of Putney for over 2,000 years and a river crossing point since Roman times. The Domesday book mentions the ferry at Putelei. In 1642 Putney and Fulham were joined by a bridge creating a major London thoroughfare. In Victorian times Putney boomed as a market garden for London and Westminster. Then, with the coming of the railways, our area saw an explosion in housing and became the major centre and residential area we know and love today.
