Like a lot of south London, Tooting spent much of the 20th century asleep in run-down respectability.

Then about 20 years ago, buyers priced out of neighbouring Clapham started to search further down the Northern line.

Today, homes in conservation areas such as the Heaver Estate, bordering Tooting Bec Common and its lido, command similar prices to Clapham, but in general properties remain a good 15 per cent cheaper, making it affordable for first-timers and couples trading up to a family house.

St George’s Gate is a development of two-bedroom and four-bedroom townhouses, each with open-plan ground-floor kitchen and living area, garden and off-street parking.

From £825,000. Call 0333 577 5878.
