Over the past 10 years Wimbledon Town Centre has gone from strength to strength and is recognised as a prestigious location, offering a wide range of shops, theatres, restaurants and leisure activities, making it a great place to work and spend time with friends and family, .
Located at the bottom of Wimbledon Hill with fantastic transport links (which include not only the underground and overland rail services but also the frequent tram link). This part of Wimbledon is very popular with professionals and young families due to the more affordable properties in the area such as mid terrace Victorian houses and Victorian conversions.

Within this sought after area is a range of three story villas along Queens Road and two storey houses fronting Trinity Road. The houses in the South Park Garden conservations area were built between 1880 and 1923 and have certain features in common.

John Innes Conservation Area:
The John Innes Conservation Area (Merton Park) lies south of the Kingston Road that was developed towards the end of the 19th century and in the early years of the 20th century by John Innes and the Merton Park Estate company. Its avenues of trees, its variety of attractive buildings, its gardens with holly hedges, provide Merton Park with its distinctive charm. At its heart is the historic village Church of Merton and its nearby open spaces, giving the area a special "rural" character popular again with families and professional sharers alike.
Many of the properties in this area two-storey detached and semi-detached houses, but with several rows of charming terraced cottages, all in a variety of styles. Parts of Merton Park outside the Conservation Areas also have good examples of domestic architecture, although from a later time (1920s and 30s), with large semi-detached houses in the typical style of the period, the architects being influenced to some extent by the fine designs of earlier houses in Merton Park.
