Wherever you live in Clapham you are close to the Tube, one reason why the area appeals to West End and City-bound young professionals. Another reason is the 22-acre Common, which offers respite from the traffic that cuts through the district.
Crescent House has the right address — as you might expect from the former HQ of the Post Office Workers’ Union. Moments from Clapham Common Tube, the grand crescent-shaped building dates from the Thirties. It has an imposing manor house-style entrance plus a carriage driveway and rear gardens. Galliard is creating 36 apartments priced from £699,000. Call 020 7620 1500.
