Balham


Architects in Balham SW12

Once a rundown neighbourhood Balham is now an extremely sought after area both by young families and professionals. Reflecting the gentrification of this area of South West London, this has naturally affected property prices, with house values rising here faster than Clapham and Wandsworth. With over 25 years’ experience in creating and redesigning homes in Balham, Anthony Thomas Architects have worked on numerous Balham property projects with kitchen conversions, rear extensions and loft conversions being the most popular services we offer. Victorian terraced houses, which feature heavily in Balham, do tend to be on the small side – families often approach with view to create and extra room for a growing child or to open up dark, narrow kitchens. Some of our recent architecture projects in Balham can be viewed in our Project Lists.

Nightingale Lane, Hyde Farm conservation area & Heaver Estate architects

Some the Balham’s best streets fall in three conservations areas: the Heaver Estate, between the Balham High Road and Tooting Common Nightingale Lane conservation area and Hyde Farm estate. Planning permission for building work in conservation areas is notoriously difficult to obtain but we have been successful by sensitive remodelling while honouring original architecture and building history. As families tend to set roots in Balham, we have seen a huge rise in the number of projects in the area,  however there still are some unmodernised family houses for sale which undoubtedly be an excellent return on investment once ‘done up’. Once completed, our projects usually add £200k + to the value of a house, so well worth the investment.
