This substantial, rarely available and fully un-modernised, natural four-bedroom house with west-facing garden, is in an attractive tree-lined road and just yards from the edge of Clapham Common. It has masses of potential to extend into the loft, the basement, to the side and the rear (STPP) and would make an ideal family home. It is close to excellent schools and to train/tube/bus connections from Clapham Junction and Clapham South stations.
Built in 1909-10, this four-bedroom, terraced house needs modernising and updating throughout but is a wonderful opportunity to design and renovate to one’s own specification. The house retains some of its original Edwardian features and has lovely proportions and a sunny west-facing garden. The ground floor reception rooms are generously sized whilst the hallway has good width. Upstairs, the four generous double bedrooms are currently served by a bathroom/WC on the first floor. The equivalent bathroom space on the top floor is currently a kitchenette (with shower off it) but could easily be converted to a proper second bathroom. Significant square footage could be added to the property by converting the large loft and extending to the side/rear which would bring the house to around 2100-2200 square feet (195-205 Square metres). Developing the basement would bring considerably more.
Canford Road is an attractive street running immediately off the green spaces and recreational facilities of Clapham Common. It is in the heart of the area known as ‘Between the Commons’ and within easy reach of excellent primary and secondary schools in both the state and private sectors. Numerous train/tube links to The City, West End and beyond can be found at Clapham Junction mainline and Clapham South tube (Northern Line) stations and the area is well-served by bus routes. A wonderful array of eating, drinking and shopping choices are nearby on fashionable Northcote Road and Battersea Rise.
