Buy a House on Gambole Road, SW17 — with a ‘Second Income Hack’

Firstly, why buy a house on Gambole Road SW17 and why should you want to?

Before we answer that, let’s start by asking the obvious question…

Where is Gambole Road?

Gambole Road is in Greater London, SW17 and falls under the governance of Wandsworth Council. And as well being fairly affluent, Wandsworth also boasts having one of the lowest council tax rates in England.

Okay, ‘but London is a big place’, I hear you asking.

So to clarify a bit more, if you’re wondering how far Gambole Road is from Central London the answer is approx. 5 miles in a South Westerly direction from the centre of London. The five keys areas are Wandsworth Town, Clapham, Balham, Putney and Tooting.

The ‘Second Income Hack’ as we call it at Gambole can work for any house, anywhere in the country. In fact it can literally work for any house or asset regardless of which country you are from or live in. Hop over to the gambole website to take a closer, more detailed look or ask questions.

Anyway, one day while doing random google searches instead of working, (I know, I know lol), we came across an interesting fact about the word ‘gambole’.

Apart from the fact that most people have never heard of the word or don’t know that it means simply the act of doing a ‘forward roll’ — we realised it has another quite unique distinction.

There is only ONE Gambole Road in the entire U.K.

Yes. Gambole Road in Tooting, London SW17 is the only Road or Street in the United Kingdom by that name. Considering the hundreds of thousands of Streets and Roads in the entire nation — we think that’s a pretty cool fact.

Anyway, having a unique name isn’t the only reason to splash out an average of £590,000 on a house or apartment I think you’d agree. So let’s take a closer look at some details.

In 2019, there was only one house sold in Gambole Road at the price of £595,000 — although in the previous year the two houses sold in Gambole Road returned an average sale price of close to £670,000.

At the time of writing this post (February 2020), the highest priced property for sale on Gambole Road is £850,000.

It is worth noting the fact that the average property price across Greater London in general has dropped by about 15% — 17% because of the growing uncertainty around the knock-on effects of Brexit post January 2020.

Looking back historically to 2016 it can be seen that once again there were only two property sales with an average sale price of £508,000 — so regardless of the Brexit factor property prices on Gambole Road can be seen as upwardly robust.
