A little history:


Streatham Hill dates back to Roman times, it's importance being defined by the road itself (High Road). During the 5th century it's name was given as "Brixtane" which was a stone location where the "Brixton Hundred" met in Saxon times.

During Medieval times the area was known for it's valued coppiced woodland. "Brixton Causeway Coppice" covered the northern side of Streatham Hill while "Leigham Wood" was to the south.

House-building in the area began in the late 18th century around New Park Road. Planned developments began in the early 19th century, with a thoroughfare including houses and shops. Large mansions were built at this time and by mid-century Streatham Hill Station opened - the year being 1856. This spawned the development of Telford Park and Tierny Road estates in the 1870s. By the 1900s there was a tram system in place as well as the Omnibus, establishing the area as a suburban commuter town.

During the 1920s redevelopment of the high road into shops and entertainment locales established Streatham as the "Entertainment Centre of South London". Much of this atmosphere remains to this day.

Testimonials

  • "I'm a landlady living abroad and Black Katz are letting agents for my 2 flats. Kim Welcome and her colleague Alex (but especially Kim) have been outstandingly helpful, not only in finding good tenants but also by sorting out last-minute problems such as unexpected cleaning, and organising redecoration & repairs during a tenant change-over while I was in hospital for a hip replacement.

    Kim seems to have endless patience and good humour in our frequent email exchanges and during our occasional phone conversations. I can be a bit batty and sometimes uncontactable at crucial moments; nothing seems to phase Kim. She is always good-humoured and gives me sensible advice/information. I realise this review may seem 'over the top', but Kim Welcome deserves it and I couldn't manage without her!"
