North Wandsworth is popular for its large, semi-detached houses allowing quick access across the bridge to Fulham and Chelsea. The “Toast Rack” is arguably one of Wandsworth’s prized locations. It is a grid of wide tree lined streets adjacent to Wandsworth Common with substantial Victorian semi-detached/detached houses in attractive red-brick.
The Magdalen Estate offers Edwardian properties with unusually large gardens on quiet tree lined roads on the door step of Wandsworth Common. The area “Between the Commons,” as its name suggests falls between Wandsworth and Clapham Commons and consists of largely terraced Victorian properties of three or four bedrooms
