A guide to living in Nightingale Triangle
Although not the most conventional or equilateral of triangles, Nightingale Triangle adopted its name after being recognised as the plush residential area between Nightingale Lane, Balham High Road and Ravenslea Road.
Regarded as a breath of fresh air from the hectic hum of Central London, the Triangle has some of the most luxurious property in South London and has a reputation as a small village community perfect for ambitious city families.
With the river nearby, many local residents enjoy weekend strolls by the Thames culminating with a lunchtime drink in one of the many classic riverside pubs – you can see why people want to live here!

Furthermore, art galleries and exhibition spaces galore make up a thriving Wandsworth leisure scene. For shoppers, you are just a short walk away from all the riches Balham High Street has to offer, and luckily for you, the local Waitrose falls within the confines of the Nightingale Triangle.
Property in the area affectionately known as ‘the toast rack’ is made up of large 3 to 5 Victorian and Edwardian family houses. If this doesn’t suit, there are also a selection of appealing small cottages and terraces.

A genuine piece of local history, doubling up as a fantastic pub, The Old Sargeant on Garratt Lane has been in situ since 1785.
Oliver Contemporary Art Gallery on Bellevue Road is sure to get the creative juices flowing. With a pool of over 20 artists contributing to regular exhibitions, this is a great place to fit in with the hipsters and pose as an art connoisseur.
