St George’s Gate is a select development of new homes in Tooting, designed to appeal to a discerning audience, including professionals working in central London, families and investors.
This collection of 2 and 4-bedroom townhouses incorporates modern design features, such as open-plan living spaces, en suite bathrooms and integrated kitchen appliances. All properties enjoy landscaped gardens and all have off-street parking.
Located around 10 minutes walk from Tooting Bec Underground Station, St George’s Gate is an ideal base for commuters working in central London. Frequent Northern Line trains run to Waterloo, Charing Cross, Bank and Old Street, while the Victoria line can be easily accessed by changing at Stockwell station for travel to London Victoria, Oxford Circus, Warren Street and Highbury & Islington. National Rail services run from Wandsworth Common and Earlsfield – both around 20 minutes walk away – into London Waterloo, Clapham Junction, London Victoria, Kensington Olympia and Wembley. Major roads easily accessible from the development include the A24, the A3 and the A23.
For families, these new homes in Tooting are near a number of well-regarded schools, including Fircroft Primary School, Hillbrook School and Gatton VA Primary School. Secondary schools include Ernest Bevin College (for boys) and Burntwood School (for girls). South Thames College on Tooting High Street offers a range of apprenticeships, professional and further education courses, while London’s many universities provide undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes in a huge variety of subjects.
Shopping facilities locally are excellent, with Tooting High Street a mere 15 minutes walk away. There, popular chain stores and supermarkets sit alongside independent and specialist retailers, and two indoor markets – The Broadway Market and Tooting Market – attract visitors from throughout the area.
A wealth of cafés and restaurants, bars and traditional pubs can be found along the High Street, Garratt Lane and up towards Balham and Clapham. The local area is also known for its music and comedy venues, such as the Tooting Tram & Social, housed in a converted tram shed, and The Bedford in Balham, home to the long-running Banana Cabaret comedy club.
Although just six miles from central London, Tooting offers ample open space for leisure and relaxation, thanks to Tooting, Clapham and Wandsworth commons. Tooting Bec Lido – the largest outdoor swimming pool in the UK – is situated on the 221-acre Tooting Bec Common, less than two miles from St George’s Gate. Between them the commons offer a wealth of facilities, including athletics tracks, running routes, tennis courts, sports pitches and children’s play areas.
