Colliers Wood

Affectionately known as “Collywood”, Collier’s Wood is an up-and-coming area in South West London, and one of its best kept secrets. Sharing the famous SW19 postcode with nearby Wimbledon, there are traditional and modern properties offering more for your money than its more affluent neighbour.

What makes Collier’s Wood a great place to live?

Well connected

Colliers Wood is situated on the Northern Line, and it takes less than 25 minutes to get into the City. It is also on the CS7 continuous bicycle lane into Southwark Bridge, as well as giving easy access to the A3.

Up and coming, with glamorous neighbours

With large public funding regenerating the area, as well as the refurbishment of the Collier’s Wood Tower into luxury apartments, this is a great place to invest in property. It is very close to all of the amenities of Wimbledon, and neighbours Tooting with its vast array of amazing curry houses and shops.

Parks aplenty

Next to the National Trust owned Wandle Park, with over 11 acres of park-land, Colliers Wood is also close to Merton Park, Wandle Meadow Nature Park, and is a bus-ride from Wimbledon Common.

Merton Abbey Mills

Colliers Wood is home to an arts and crafts village with a bustling weekend market, live music and a wide range of restaurants. The fully restored waterwheel powers a pottery wheel in the Wheelhouse with classes available for all ages.

Market Values

Average property prices in Collier’s Wood:
1 bedroom – £350,000
2 bedroom - £404,983
3 bedroom – £475,000
4 bedroom – £587,488

The average rental in Collier’s Wood is £317 per week for a flat, and £715 per week for a house.

Why invest in Collier’s Wood?

Collier’s Wood is a great place to invest. A rather ugly tower that has somewhat dominated the area is now being redeveloped. Not only will this make the place look a great deal more attractive, but it will also attract young professionals into the area, which in turn will improve the amenities. The area isn’t actually very big, so you are never far away from the tube making it ideal for the commuter. With neighbouring Wimbledon and Tooting commanding much higher property prices, Collier’s Wood is a hidden gem.

The Charles Holden

198 High Street
SW19 2BH

The Charles Holden is a traditional English pub offering the best of British food, brilliant ales and wines, in a relaxed environment for all the family and the whole of the local community. The Charles Holden also has a magnificent garden with an allotment and kitchen garden area. Charles Holden was the architect who brought the tube to Colliers Wood in 1926.

From him we take our inspiration to be:

IN COLLIERS WOOD OF COLLIERS WOOD FOR COLLIERS WOOD

Charles Henry Holden
(1875 – 1960)

An English architect best known for designing many London Underground stations during the 1920s and 1930s, including our own Colliers Wood Tube station. Charles also designed Bristol Central Library, the Underground Electric Railways Company of London's headquarters at 55 Broadway and for the University of London's Senate House.

After working and training in Bolton and Manchester, Holden moved to London. His early buildings were influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement, but for most of his career he championed an unadorned style based on simplified forms and massing that was free of what he considered to be unnecessary decorative detailing.

He believed strongly that architectural designs should be dictated by the intended functions of buildings. After the First World War he increasingly simplified his style and his designs became pareddown and modernist, influenced by European architecture. Holden was a member of the Design and Industries Association and the Art Workers' Guild. He produced complete designs for his buildings including the interior design and architectural fittings.

Although not without its critics, his architecture is widely appreciated. He was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects' (RIBA's) Royal Gold Medal for architecture in 1936 and was appointed a Royal Designer for Industry in 1943. His station designs for London Underground became the corporation's standard design influencing designs by all architects working for the organisation in the 1930s. Many of his buildings have been granted listed building status, protecting them from unapproved alteration.

The Sultan

78 Norman Road
SW19 1BT

South West London CAMRA pub of the year 2004. On the outside a 'roadhouse' type public house, typical of the suburban pub style of the 1930s, the Sultan is, on the inside, one of South London's hidden treasures.

The saloon bar is perhaps unique in being named after a living personality. Ted Higgins's name may not immediately spring to everyone's mind, but he was the original Walter Gabriel in Radio 4s The Archers, before eschewing the wayward life of an actor for the sake of love. He is honored not for his acting but for his 'beer fingers' and his life-long devotion to good beer.
