Manchuria Road SW11
Between the Commons
In excess of 2000 square feet, this immaculately presented Victorian property oozes quality, with a wealth of beautiful period features, stylish kitchen and bathrooms and lovely light extensions to the loft and side return. It is a first-class, five double bedroom, family home in a prime street Between the Commons, very close to Clapham South tube and excellent schools.
The house a smart exterior with brick wall, iron railings and Victorian mosaic tiled path and the entrance hallway retains the original pretty, mosaic-tessellated floor, ceiling corbels and stained glass to the front door. All windows throughout have been replaced with lovely double-glazed wooden sash units and most have fitted plantation shutters.
The double reception room retains its lovely original features including high ornate ceilings, beautiful working gas fireplace and dividing doors and now has lovely engineered oak flooring which runs right through the ground floor.
The kitchen is unusually bright – its cleverly designed extension having glass all along one side wall and sleek stylish kitchen units along the other – and provides ample space for a generous family kitchen table. Folding doors at the rear open into a well-established landscaped rear garden which enjoys the lion’s share of the gap between this property and the houses behind (the gardens on Broxash are considerably smaller as seen from our aerial photo!). It faces Northwest and so benefits from the lovely late summer sun those SE facing gardens behind miss out on. The cellar has been converted into an excellent utility room and houses the all-important downstairs WC without having to eat into the kitchen space.
The upper floors now provide an excellent layout for a growing family with five good double bedrooms, including an elegant main bedroom and three contemporary bath/shower rooms, one of which is en suite to the top bedroom in the large converted loft and the other two are positioned on each rear landing. Two of the bedrooms are used as generous offices with wood floors, the top floor one also having a large extra skylight installed.
Manchuria Road is prime territory, being a quiet and attractive tree-lined road off exclusive Clapham Common West Side, less than half a mile from Clapham South tube station (Northern Line), with easy access to both the City and West End. The area provides an excellent choice of good schools. Extensive shopping facilities, numerous restaurants and wine bars can be found on nearby Northcote Road and Abbeville Road or around Clapham South station.
