A riverside gem in the heart of Earlsfield, Westfield Waterside is one of south London’s rising stars


The clue is in the name when it comes to Westfield Waterside. This apartment building in the London borough of Wandsworth is pulled up between the River Wandle and leafy King George’s Park, with townhouses that benefit from either river or park views, and apartments that overlook courtyard gardens. Wandsworth Common is close by, too, so there’s no shortage of green space or picturesque waterside views.

Developed by Linden Homes, Westfield Waterside is in the suburb of Earlsfield – an up-and-coming area of London that’s popular with professionals thanks to its swift transport links. Earlsfield mainline station is half a mile – or a six-minute walk – from the development, and London Waterloo is just a 15-minute journey from here. Southfields and Wimbledon Park underground stations are also within easy walking distance. Young families make up another significant proportion of the population of Earlsfield thanks to a selection of well-performing schools in the area.

The accommodation at Westfield Waterside is made up of one and two-bedroom apartments, and two, three and four-bed townhouses. Townhouses are sold with a private, allocated underground parking space, while a space can be purchased separately with apartments. Townhouses also offer large outdoor terraces to make the most of the surrounding views, and additional facilities at Westfield Waterside include a 12-hour concierge service.
Inside, interiors are modern and inviting – rooms are decorated in muted cream, white and fawn tones, and super-sleek fitted kitchens come as standard. Rooms are flooded with natural light thanks to full-length sliding doors that open out onto private balconies or terraces, enhancing the tranquil setting.

Practically on the doorstep is Garratt Lane, which runs through the centre of Earlsfield and connects Wandsworth High Street to Tooting Broadway. Lined with shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants, it’s the beating heart of the area. If you’re a foodie, don’t miss Wimbledon Park Farmers’ Market every Saturday at Wimbledon Park Primary School. It’s not big, but it’s well established and just as well stocked – as a couple of Time Out awards testify.
