Collier’s Wood is a fantastic, mostly residential area in the London Borough of Merton. It was previously woodland but was cleared in the 19th century, allowing development. The area is still very green though, particularly with Wandle Park, Wandle Meadow Nature Park, and Collier’s Wood Recreational Ground. The green spaces are highly appreciated amongst residents, particularly dog walkers.
A second big selling point of the area is the transport links. The Underground Station is served by the Northern Line, offering a route to Central London. This is great for commuters.
Those looking to trade in public transport for cycling are well served in this part of Merton. Cycle Superhighway CS7 starts in the Collier’s Wood and stretches all the way to Southwark Bridge right in the centre of London. If you are thinking of cycling for your commute you should check the route map. It shows the Superhighway as well as alternative routes that can be taken on busy and quieter roads.
Properties in Collier’s Wood offer good value for money, particularly in comparison to its more expensive neighbours Wimbledon and Tooting. This, coupled with the benefits mentioned above, makes it popular for buyers and renters alike.
Investors looking to purchase homes in the area should be looking at areas close to the train station, cycle highway, and parks. These are the most in demand locations as a result of the amenities on offer in the vicinity.
