While little is ever truly certain on the London commute, a strategic move might well guarantee you a seat — at least in the morning rush.

Welcome to the end of the line, where journeys start early but trains arrive blissfully empty.

For most of us Stanmore and Cockfosters are words that flash up on the front of the tube carriage, with any visits a product of naps on the night tube. Other last-stop locales, on single-station branches or new Overground extensions, are firmly under the radar.

We’ve selected 10 of the best homes currently for sale minutes from London terminals, from an Art Deco gem on the market for the first time in decades to a flat at the heart of a new regeneration zone.

Morden, SW19


Keswick Avenue, SW19 (Hawes & Co)
