Why do you find Roehampton a great place to live?


"Living in an award-winning apartment overlooking majestic Richmond Park, with only the sound of geese in the nearby pond, you would not believe that you are just 45 minutes from Piccadilly Circus. Surrounded by greenery and tucked away pubs and restaurants, Roehampton is definitely London's most rural and yet 'to be discovered' haven."
