While Clapham and Wimbledon tend to take the spotlight, Earlsfield is a beautiful and distinguished area of Wandsworth. The property market is flourishing, with a new influx of young professionals flocking to the area, in no small part due to its fast links to central London. That’s not to say that this short commute is the only option for career-minded individuals; Earlsfield is, in itself, an increasingly thriving business hub.
Families are also very fond of Earlsfield, due to its good schools and lower crime rates than most London suburbs (crime in the area tends to equal that of nearby Wimbledon). Overall quality of life score (broken down by income, employment, health, education, barriers to services, living environment; and crime) in Earlsfield indicates that it is among the top third of areas in England.
