‘Wimbledon’ is synonymous to tennis. But whilst the All English Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC)’s retractable roof may remain closed, another one opens. One that shines light on the remainder of the infamous SW19 postcode and what it has to offer.

Today we take a closer look at Wimbledon Village through the eyes of South West Prime, a newly founded Instagram page who dedicate their time to scoping out South West London’s most beautiful homes.

Step away from the hustle and bustle of Wimbledon Village high-street and you are immediately greeted with an eclectic mix of architectural styles. From Georgian to Victorian to Contemporary and more, one thing becomes clear; the area’s architecture is not built upon uniformity but excellence, and it is competing at the very top of its game. 

Benefitting from great road and rail connections via the A3 and District Line respectively, this south-west London hotspot has long been a magnet for those seeking the balance of city and country life. With its elevated views of the city skyline to the east and over a thousand acres of Common woodland to the west, Wimbledon Village has it all. Couple that with a seemingly continuous stream of dilapidated homes leading to development opportunities alike, here we share ten of the finest homes we have found:

Situated in the heart of Wimbledon Village, this property is eye-catching from the moment you arrive. Nestled amongst colourful gardens designed by Arabella Lennox-Boyd, this c 1845 home features large windows, high moulded ceilings and original fireplaces.
Sat in a prime position overlooking Wimbledon Park Golf Club and Lake, this elevated property offers four storeys of accommodation just shy of 7,500sqft. Key features include 6 en-suite bedrooms, the master with bi-fold opening doors, as well as basement gym, media room and wine cellar.
Wisteria hysteria. This beautifully presented period home sits proudly above street level with views stretching across Wimbledon Park. If the seven bedrooms, four reception rooms and four bathrooms aren’t enough, plans have been drawn up to dig down and add a further 3,500 square feet of living space bringing the grand total to 8,500 square feet.
Meander your way back to the Village and set your sights upon this. The asymmetric form, pitched roofs and abundance of patterns and textures screams out ‘Arts and Crafts’; an architectural movement of the late 19th Century which set out to fend off mass production and industrialisation. Behind the sculptural façade lies a modest 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 reception rooms.
Now, what this house might ‘lack’ in size to some of its counterparts, it certainly makes up for in charm. This 3,000 square feet home features an array of brickwork styles, pillars and shutters in Riviera-style pastel shades. Internally an open-plan kitchen opens directly onto landscaped gardens at the rear. Need we say more?
This home is unlike any other on our search so far. Again, taking its cues from the ‘Arts and Crafts’ era, this unique home achieves the very best of contemporary living whilst staying true to the areas Conversation status. The use of natural stone stretches from the exterior, up, around and throughout the interior. Arranged over three floors, this home features a fitness room, steam room and wine cellar. Bottoms up!
To the south of Wimbledon Village and Common you’ll find this modern take on the Victorian era. Arranged over three storeys, this collection of seven townhouses feature impeccably designed interiors suited to any modern family’s needs. Victorian style never looked so good.
Situated a mere stone’s throw from the All English Lawn Tennis Club (AELTC), this contemporary slate-clad home sits part on and part set into the hillside. The main kitchen and bedroom areas are crowned with a double cantilevered glass box offering a unique living, dining and viewing deck. Anybody for strawberries and cream?

Head west and be prepared to be stopped in your tracks. Two striking homes, each worthy of their own architectural merit sit proudly behind a shared 12-feet Listed wall.

The first, a modern recreation of a traditional Georgian style, is a near-symmetrical three-storey plus basement home featuring 7 bedrooms, 4 en-suite bathrooms, a games room and gym. 
The second, an ultra-modern façade houses an equally attractive interior including a basement swimming pool, car lift and golf simulator.
