This beautifully extended, meticulously designed and extensively renovated Victorian house of 2134 SQ.FT. / 198.3 SQ.M has a huge kitchen/family room, a rare 25’ sunny southwest-facing garden and an excellent main bedroom suite. The house is only 100 yards from Clapham Common and in the catchment area for the outstanding Belleville Primary School. It is close to excellent transport facilities and fashionable Northcote Road.
The rarity of houses with decent gardens Between the Commons is well known amongst locals but less so among newcomers to the area. If you’re buying a house and have or are planning a family, mark these words – once the pitter patter of tiny feet turns into more of a thunderclap – you’ll be grateful for the extra garden space, no matter how close the Common is. This house comes with a 25‘ SW-facing garden and the added benefit of a vast extended kitchen, which will make you one of the lucky few. Better still it is also only 100 yards from Clapham Common West Side and the playground there, so you have the best of both worlds.
Close by in the other direction is fashionable Northcote Road with its huge variety of bars, restaurants and specialist shops in addition to a thriving high-quality food market. Transport connections are excellent with Clapham Junction mainline and Clapham South tube station both about half a mile away providing frequent services to the City and West End, and a number of local buses. There is an excellent choice of private and state schools and local nurseries in the area. The highly sought-after Belleville State Primary School is just around the corner and Thomas’s Clapham is at the end of the road.
The house itself was carefully renovated, extended, and restored (inside and out) by the present owners and blends traditional features with modern styling. With its large front and rear lofts converted, it provides four double bedrooms and three bathrooms arranged over two floors. The main bedroom suite is superb comprising a large dressing area and first class en suite with roll top bath, large walk in shower, underfloor heating, travertine tiling and heated mirrors. It also houses a Megaflo water tank which delivers excellent pressure for all washrooms. The main family bathroom on first floor and top floor en suite shower room are fitted in similar style with high quality Lefroy Brooks fittings.
The ground floor consists of an elegant and open-plan double reception with period features including matching Victorian marble fireplaces (both with working gas-coal fires), high ornate ceilings and solid oak floors (which also run into the hall). To the front is a large bay window and to the rear the room now opens into the kitchen extension allowing for good entertaining and family living space. Here the house has been built out into the side and rear and the resulting family space is huge with a large central island, an excellent dining area and a wonderful extra sitting area to the rear by the garden. The bespoke kitchen is beautifully crafted and has hand-painted wooden units, sleek stone worktops and top-quality integrated appliances including Aga, hob, fridge/freezer, wine fridge, dishwasher and oven/microwave. The “wraparound” extension has numerous large skylights bringing in lots of natural light due to the house’s sunny rear aspect. There is a storage cellar/utility room beneath the hall and there is a handy ground floor WC and coat cupboard next to the kitchen.
The wonderful landscaped garden is accessed by fully folding doors from the kitchen and enjoys a very sunny southwesterly aspect, receiving sun for pretty much the whole day. It has a large paved area for outside dining, and mature flowering borders giving an excellent feeling of privacy. It is significantly longer than average for the area (given the size of the rear kitchen extensions) and measures 25’.
