This elegant, 3-storey Victorian townhouse (c.1869) with leafy and secluded south-facing rear garden is in an enviable position off fashionable Northcote Road and a quarter mile from Clapham Junction station. It is beautifully styled, has wonderful proportions and offers excellent potential to expand up, down and sideways.
The ground floor comprises a double reception room with the original dividing doors intact, lots of original features and a bay window to the front. The rear kitchen has smart wall and base units, integrated appliances, a tiled ceramic stone floor and French windows to the garden. This is private and is attractively planted with mature shrubs and trees and has a particularly wide side return. This could considerably increase the size of the kitchen if extended (and the kitchen has been designed along one wall with this in mind so that it could remain intact while such an extension was built).
On the first floor are four double bedrooms and two beautifully fitted bathrooms one of which opens onto a sunny rear roof terrace. The room arrangement is mirrored on both the first and second floors with two bedrooms and a bathroom on each level. Potential (with adjacent precedent) exists to extend the house upwards substantially with a double mansard loft extension (a larger squarer loft conversion than those which can be built on ordinary sloping rooves) which would comfortably accommodate two more children’s bedrooms and a bathroom or a substantial master suite. There is also scope to dig a basement, all subject to planning permission. Please note there are a few features (not original to the house) which will be retained by the outgoing vendors – details on request.
Shelgate Road runs immediately off Northcote Road with its huge selection of shopping, bars and restaurants. Good schools are nearby including the highly sought-after Belleville primary school and Bolingbroke Academy. The open spaces of Clapham Common are within 1/4 mile as is Clapham Junction station with its direct links into The City and The West End.
