The village remained largely unchanged until the 18th century, when the village's natural springs, known as Streatham Wells, were first celebrated for their health-giving properties. The reputation of the spa, and improved turnpike roads, attracted wealthy City of London merchants and others to build their country residences in Streatham.

The main dining room retains the classic charm of the existing room. With soft colours and comfortable seating to accentuate this relaxed, bright space.

This spacious semi-detached property is arranged over three floors and boasts over 2700 sq ft.

Streatham Village dates back to the 19th century while the area’s original heart, around St Leonard’s Church, emerged in medieval times. A “golden triangle” between Kings Avenue, Atkins Road and Streatham Hill has big Edwardian houses that would be twice the price in the best parts of Clapham and Wandsworth.

After the departure of the Romans, the main road through Streatham remained an important trackway. From the 17th century it was adopted as the main coach road to Croydon and East Grinstead, and then on to Newhaven and Lewes. In 1780 it then became the route of the turnpike road from London to Brighton, and subsequently became the basis for the modern A23. This road (and its traffic) have shaped Streatham's development.

A new Streatham Playhouse forms part of the scheme, while Marks & Spencer is signed up for an on-site food store and café. A show flat will be ready for viewing at next month’s launch. Prices start at £345,000. Call 0333 666 2131 for more information.
