Staying in Balham
Balham might not be right smack bang in the centre of London but it's got charm aplenty. Lots of good pubs, fab brunch spots (our current favourite is 'Milk'), and open green spaces make this an incredibly popular area for affluent young families. The area is filled with lots of delightful late Victorian, Edwardian and Arts and Crafts homes and offers a great opportunity to get away from the tourist hordes and feel like a local.

What the photos might not tell you, but we do
Be aware Balham & Tooting are predominantly residential - although it’s further out, it has some great independent pubs and eateries, and Tooting Bec Tube station is a just 10 min walk away
As the location of the home is very residential, some of the mentioned local attractions are slightly more than a 10-minute stroll away, however, there are several bus stops nearby that offer easy access to them if you prefer not to walk
Since the home was tested, there's been a few updates, and there are now two extra bedrooms on top of the ones in the photos
