Wimbledon is a well established suburb which has rather grandeur properties on Wimbledon Hill and descends down the hill through the town and out in a southerly direction to South Wimbledon which shares its boundaries with Colliers Wood.

Wimbledon came to prominence in the sixteenth century when Sir Thomas Cecil, 1st Earl of Exeter, settled here after being granted land by Elizabeth I. Known as the 'Maker of Wimbledon,' Cecil improved the road to London and built Wimbledon Manor House, where Kings and Queens were later to stay as guests. The arrival of the railway in Wimbledon in 1838 had a further impact on the area which led to a steady increase in residential accommodation. Substantial homes for the professional middle classes came first, terraced accommodation for working class population later, and the town developed accordingly with shops and businesses to service the new population. By the early twentieth century Wimbledon was taking shape as the bustling and up market residential suburb which it is today.
 
 

Colliers wood SW19

Despite its name, Colliers Wood is not surrounded by trees and has little to do with mining. Its name probably refers to the fact that the woodlands originally located there were used to burn charcoal. The area was settled in thanks to its good position on the fertile banks of the River Wandle. In the 19th Century Colliers Wood began to grow into its current form as a quiet London suburb. Colliers Wood has its own tube station on the northern line and a good supply of Victorian terraces and 1930s semis, both of which make it an attractive choice for the first time buyers in search of relatively “value for money” houses and conversion flats.

Wimbledon Park & Wimbledon Village SW19

Wimbledon Park & Wimbledon Village probably brings to mind finely manicured tennis courts, expensive boutiques and miles of expansive common.
