If you look towards Kennington there are a number. Houses on Lambeth Road
in particular have very long gardens. That said most houses in the area have what is termed 'patio gardens'.
It is worth trying the estate agents around Kennington Cross. I suspect you are more likely to get a garden in central SE1 if you look at ex-Council stock.
Most people I know looking for family housing with gardens go that bit further out to Stockwell. There are some really big gardens in Roads off Stockwell Park Crescent and Larkhall Lane. In particular streets like Broomfelde Road have lots of lovely family housing with good sized gardens. Plus good tube links.
Our solution was to buy opposite a park. Not perfect, but it was the only way we could afford short journey times, so more family time, and outside space.
