Fulham

Fancy Fulham is in the London Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham, flanked by upmarket Kensington & Chelsea. And while it shares its neighbour’s gorgeous terraced townhouses and designer shopping, this pocket of West London is edgier and more affordable. Set on the north bank of the River Thames, Fulham is a slower-paced slice of the city, where residents enjoy leafy walks and cosy roasts in authentic boozers. It’s a peaceful haven for professionals, and a great launchpad for commuting. Nearby Hammersmith, for example, is the HQ of major corporations like Disney and L’Oréal. Read on to discover developments that are the best places to live in Fulham. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Fulham.

Things to do in Fulham

Fulham brags one of London’s best-looking after-dark scenes, with immaculate, bloom-cloaked gastropubs and also chic wine bars. The adjacent Hammersmith area has great live music venues, which welcome a mix of well-known and up-and-coming artists. The most iconic is undoubtedly the Apollo, an entertainment institution that’s welcomed everyone from Paul Weller to Russell Brand to its stage.

Shopping in SW6 is a major pastime. Fulham has a handful of shopping centres, including Fulham Broadway and Kings Mall. There’s no competing with nearby Westfields, though – this colossal Shepherds Bush mall has around 250 classic department stores, high street brands and designer boutiques. Alternatively, there’s pretty Brackenbury Village for established independents with character.

Elsewhere, Fulham boasts top private schools and plentiful parkland. A family favourite is Bishops Park, which counts tennis courts, a sculpture garden and a man-made beach among its facilities. Nearby Hammersmith’s waterfront Furnivall Gardens is another popular spot – especially for picnics and sunbathing in the summer months.

New development

Property in Fulham

Lillie Square, a Capital and Counties Properties project with 800 units, provides a brilliant variety of floorplans, including studios, one to three-bed apartments, swish penthouse and also family townhouses.

The handover quality of the apartment is by far best in the league. The clubhouse is extraordinary, beautiful indoor swimming pool and great staff.” – LPPY, verified resident of Lillie Square

The development itself feels “hotel luxury standard” in terms of the exterior design and high-quality interior fit out specification. For me the Clubhouse with wi-fi/coffee areas/gym/pool/cinema/treatment rooms & private dinning set Lillie Square apart from anything else that I have seen. My 2-year-old daughter loves the pool and baby play areas when the weather doesn’t allow us to explore outside, which is lifesaving sometimes!” – Ben Sturnham, owner at Lillie Square

Chelsea FC fans should consider Brompton Park Crescent, a Barratt Homes property just five minutes’ walk from Stamford Bridge. This gated development features stylish apartments with a more traditional exterior, characterised by beautiful wrought-iron balconies. Rated one of the best places to live in Fulham.

“The build quality is really good, walls are built well so I can hang pictures and place multiple wardrobes around, I also like the design of the property it looks really neat.” – Anon, private tenant of Brompton Park Crescent

Pretty street with painted houses

Even more…

Also flaunting a less contemporary façade is Bishops Gate,  58-unit property from Meyer Homes, with a central location on Fulham High Street. Rated a great place to rent in Fulham.

I’m really happy with my flat! It’s exceeded my expectations as its been built with high standards. Staff and building management are great, they deal with issues quickly and properly. The flat is big enough and has been fitted with high quality appliances.” – Anon, verified resident at  Bishops Gate

Those drawn to waterside living should look to Chelsea Creek, a well thought-out development by St George, with a series of creeks flowing through its centre. It’s home to studios, apartments and also penthouses just a stone’s throw from glamorous King’s Road.

Getting around London

Fulham is extremely well located. It’s serviced by three tube stations, which are all on the District line. To give you an idea of what’s where; you can reach Piccadilly Circus from here in 16 minutes, Victoria in 20, and Kings Cross in 24. Residents are also really close to the A4 and M4 – ideal for when it’s time to escape the capital.

Stay away if tenant

Review Date Jan 2022

It feels secluded and safe, lit up at night, the residents range from professionals and families with children to footballers and media people. No council permit parking is available for the building and they charge £3500 per parking a year. No close amenities! There is a small My shop which has only necessities and booze, nearest Tesco is 15 min away. Transport links are good – Overground, District (5 min) and Picadilly (10 min) lines. There are foxes that can be noisy at night when mating. Emergency services station is just around the corner. The bad thing about the light is that they don’t turn it off at night and it’s impossible to sleep. Drug dealers in the area. Not much traffic noise & birds singing.

Please review your development:

Design is very modern, the ventilation of en-suite bathrooms in bedrooms is poor, no ventilation in the bathroom. Management is poor. In addition to electricity and water, you are forced to pay for underfloor heating (which does not work) to Switch2Be. There’s some kind of monopoly agreement between Switch2Be and management of the building – you cannot change the provider – they just double the price every year. The standing charges for this alone are more than £150. An easy way for them to trap residents and earn money on this. I was advised not to pursue legal charges against this fact as hopeless. Any problem you have as a tenant – they first send you to the letting agency, then to concierge, after 10 calls they finally do something. There are foxes and lots of spiders in the area. There were cases of parcels theft. If you want to be in RBKC/Fulham areas it’s a nice development but if not tied to the area I’d advise against it. They close pool all the time. The value for money is awful – the letting agents push prices 25% up every year and get away with it. Underfloor heating does not work properly.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Be prepared to pay a few grand for the heating per month and it will not work

No customer service whatsoever

No parking

No shops in the area

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

They sent me to the letting agent, the letting agent sent me to concierge and the concierge refuses to do anything as they need to get I instructions from the agent. Absolute disgrace.

Nice but lots of out of control children!

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

I love living here, it’s out of the way and my flat is beautiful. I moved because it was quiet but unfortunately there are groups of children under 10 (about 10-15 of them) always running around screaming unsupervised. I can even hear it through the sound proof glass. It’s not enjoyable to sit in the gardens on a nice day as the kids are left to their own devices by the parents. I have complained to the front office but nothing gets done so I am just pleased I didn’t buy in this complex as it’s not something you would be aware of!

Please review your development:

The property as a whole is beautiful and front desk staff so pleasant and helpful. My flat has all the mod cons, feels secure and safe. Like I said though the groups of unsupervised children making so much noise screaming is too much and nothing is done about it.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Noisy children which makes it hard to work and concentrate.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Better noise insulation or better management of the unsupervised children.

Perfect city life

Review Date Feb 2021

What i love about this development is the location – as it is local to train stations, other modes of transport and you have everything you need within walking distance! Which is perfect for me -clean, environment.

Please review your development:

Lillie Square is the perfect example of a great city complex – who anyone would love to live at with the luxury facilities such as pool and jacuzzi + even a cinema room! Also, the service from staff is great, from my experience so far. Communication with landlord is also clear on both sides.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

One thing I could say to anyone thinking of moving here is to consider the busy lifestyle haha.

What is the best feature of your home:

The best feature of my home is the pool as it is my form of relaxing.

Lillie Square Development

Review Date Jan 2021

Transport is good
There are buses and trains close as well as parking
There are nearby shops but the area isn’t too safe
Good development and it’s improving but still a long way to go

Please review your development:

The building is very modern and beautiful. There is an amazing clubhouse and gym which I really appreciate. However, the staff are not the best. They pressure you a lot tend to be somewhat disrespectful. This too is starting to improve but still some way to go. Very close to an ambulance station so good in case there are bad worst case scenarios.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

The area is quite loud, which I wish I’d known beforehand. Knowing this, I would still have moved in since it is beautiful, but it sometimes is concerning, especially around 9am on weekdays.
