Streatham is a part of London that has gone through many phases over the past century, from a resort town to a nightlife hub to a rundown community full of discount retailers. These days it's become one of the most sought after places to live for young professionals who are looking for something affordable that offers a lot of amenities. With large green spaces and a ton of bars, restaurants, and shops, many of these young residents have have stuck around and started families. And a lot of people are coming here from nearby neighborhoods that have gotten too expensive.

Properties in the area range from studios to multi-bedroom homes. You’ll be able to find almost anything you could want, especially if you are a single or a couple. The apartments are quite grand, especially the older ones that have been converted from homes. There are also detached houses on tree-lined streets that appeal to families and those with a bit more money.

Streatham High Road has so many different options for restaurants that you could eat your way around the world without ever leaving. There are great options for families and foodies alike, especially when you go to the smaller, “hole in the wall” places. You’ll also find great bars here offering a huge seletion of beers.

Streatham hosts several festivals throughout the summer: Streatham Festival is a yearly arts festival that brings in a lot of people and celebrities; the Streatham Food Festival is a local favorite to give you a sample of the restaurants and cultures in the area; and the Streatham Common Kite Day Festival features kite flying (obviously), food stalls, and entertainment for children. 

Streatham Common is a large nature reserve with plenty of space for sports or just hanging out. Within the reserve you'll find the Rookery, an ornamental garden that is romantic and popular among couples young and old. There's also a cafe here offering brunch, lunch, and dinner.

Streatham is bordered on the north by Streatham Hill, on the east by West Norwood, on the south by Norbury, and on the west by Furzedown.
