Putney area guide

The Parkgate Estates team are local, so along with the usual useful information, we have included our own favourite aspects – discovered after years of living here. Something you didn’t know? The author of Mr Benn lived on Festing Road and aspects of the show were based on the street!

Putney – Our favourite bits

James: A pub for every occasion, lots of green river walks and coffee stops along the way. A community village feel that’s just a mere 20 minutes from the action and excitement of the city.

Property & transport in Putney

Property

West Putney offers pretty residential roads, with mainly Victorian and Edwardian houses but Putney also offers large mansion flats with the iconic Kenilworth Court and many more, further up Putney Hill. The east side of Putney offers similar housing stock but is peppered with new build developments of plush flats. One-bedroom flats are available from £350,000 and houses will be upwards of £1,000,000. The rental market in Putney is strong so you will be spending £1,400 plus for a one-bedroom flat whilst houses will start from around £2,800 per month. It also benefits from the lower council tax.

Our favourite transport in Putney has to be the River Bus which offers a regular boat service to central London.

What people say

Coming from England and desperately trying to fulfil my core values and instinct to complain, I realised I had come to a road block when dealing with Chris at Parkgate. He provided a faultless, streamlined service which restored my faith in Estate/Letting Agents. Before our experience with Chris we had spent months in a manipulation filled world of deception trying to find a flat to rent. It was such a breath of fresh air to have dealt which Chris who made things so simple.

I was recommended Parkgate Estates and I am so glad that I have rented through them. The service that I have experienced has been truly amazing. Throughout the whole process, from enquiring to completing the team were hard working and very professional. They found a property that was perfect for me and I was always kept informed of negotiations that were going on. I'm very happy in my new home and I would definitely recommended them to anybody who is looking for genuine and helpful estate agents!
