Fulham is a leafy area located South of Chelsea in bend of the Thames. Property here demands a premium and smart town houses here have been known to sell for well over a million pounds. Known in the 18th century for its reputation for sin, it attracted London’s affluent classes for drinking gambling and prostitution. A lot has changed since then. In the 1980s, the area became known for its upmarket property, shops and restaurants and ‘yuppies’ in the area were affectionately known as Sloane Rangers due to the area’s proximity to Sloane Square. Today you are more likely to find Australians and South Africans who flock to Fulham to enjoy its lively social scene.
As well as a healthy nightlife, the area also has a great deal of top quality restaurants, boutique shops, riverside pubs and great schools. It is also well served by public transport with no less than 3 zone 2 tube stations close by including Parsons Green, Putney Bridge and Fulham Broadway.
As a result, the area is a popular commuter area for city slickers and developers have invested in the area. New mixed-use developments have included buildings with space for residential space, as well as offices and retail space to let or buy.
Many businesses are now relocating to the area and commercial property to let in Fulham is available but you need to know where to look. Those looking for studios, warehouses and offices, to let in the Fulham will have a choice of new developments and spacious Victorian re-developments.
