Homes in Wimbledon were among the most sought after real estate in the London property market between the last quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, as home-buyers set their eyes on areas with green spaces in lockdown.

Estate agent Benham and Reeves' latest Prime London Property Demand Index, revealed a demand for high-end homes costing more than £2m increased by 1% in the same period.

The index analysed the ratio of homes listed for sale to those sold across the prime London market to identify where high-end homebuyer demand is at its highest.

The estate agents reported that demand for homes at £10m and above also increased by 2% on a quarterly basis.

According to data, the largest quarterly uplift was found in Wimbledon, with demand up by 12%.

The increase in demand for homes in Wimbledon also mirrored Q2, with demand recorded at 44%.

SW London areas, Barnes, Richmond, Putney, Clapham and Wandsworth also rank highly.

Director of Benham and Reeves, Marc von Grundherr, said: “We’re slowly but surely seeing momentum grow across the prime London market and a further uplift in homebuyer demand during the first quarter is certainly a positive sign for the year ahead.

"Of course, this increase in health has been boosted to an extent by the capital’s less traditional prime areas such as Richmond, Barnes, Putney, Clapham and Highgate.

"These locations offer larger homes but more importantly, both the homes available and the wider areas boast a greater abundance of green space, which has fast become a must-have for high-end homebuyers.

"This is a trend that has been brought about due to lockdown restrictions and is no doubt here to stay, if only for the short to medium term."
