Sheen & Mortlake,
South West London


Fascinating to know… In the 17th century, Mortlake was home to John Dee, the famous mathematician, astronomer, and adviser to Queen Elizabeth I, who lived in the area and had an extensive library and laboratory there.

Sheen and Mortlake, situated in the southwest of London, are two adjoining neighbourhoods with a rich tapestry of history and a vibrant local culture. Nestled along the meandering River Thames, these areas offer a delightful blend of picturesque landscapes and historical significance.


Places of Interest

One of the standout attractions is the stunning Richmond Park, a vast royal park spanning 2,500 acres, renowned for its natural beauty and herds of deer. Nearby, the historic Ham House, a 17th-century mansion, stands as a testament to the area’s rich heritage. Its grand architecture and lush gardens transport visitors back in time.

The Mortlake Brewery, established in the 15th century, has a storied past and played a pivotal role in brewing history. Today, it is part of the renowned Budweiser Brewing Group, preserving its heritage while producing world-class beverages.

Jonathan’s Top Tips… Sunday lunch in the Hare and Hounds Garden for me. You wouldn’t know there is a huge garden out the back and always has a nice atmosphere.

Klaudia’s Favourite… Walking through Sheen Woods in Autumn, wrapped up warm and kicking leaves followed by a drink in The Plough on Christchurch Road.

Chris’s Go-To…The whole of Sheen is a surprising hidden gem with independent shops, transport links, Richmond Park and the River Thames all within a relatively short distance of each other.

Very responsive, informative and always kind people. We didn’t have much time, but they helped us with creating some time in their agenda and squeezing us in. We rented our place just in time, thanks to them.

Parkgate has been my agent of choice for a number of years now and has secured good tenants for my properties. They are hard working, respond in a timely manner and best of all are always friendly rather than aggressive or overbearing, which is the case with many of their competitors.

Excellent service throughout.We rented a property that they manage for 4 years.Parkgate team is very professional and approachable. Way better than dealing with a big agency, they offer a more personal approach, always available and willing to solve any issues.From the tenancy agreement to handing the property back, it has been a real pleasure working with them.

I have had an eight year relationship with Parkgate, in fact they originally sold my flat to me 12 years ago in Putney. Their service and professionalism is unrivalled. They managed the leasing of my flat from 2014 and assisted me to negotiate the successful sale just now in 2022. Chris has been there throughout with an open door and no request too trivial to assist. Klaudia negotiated my sale and worked with amazing tenacity throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend Parkgate to anyone in the Putney/Richmond area, they know their stuff.

We have had a wonderful experience with Parkgate and would highly recommend them. Chris was brilliant on the valuation – what we liked is he was totally honest about our chances of selling and gave us the positives and negatives about our property (such as facing a council estate!). Other agents tend to just gush over the good bits which is great, but actually not that helpful.The selling process was great – we were given good feedback from the viewings and got the price we wanted within about 8 weeks.We really have nothing but praise for Klaudia and Chris, it’s been really enjoyable, easy and stress free and we will be recommending Parkgate to all our friends in the area and our building.***** Thank you! *****
