Gorst Road SW11
Between the Commons
This wide semi-detached Victorian house, with handsome frontage and south-facing garden, is a superb and substantial family house in waiting. Unmodernised houses such as these offer very rare opportunities to significantly extend, design and finish to both the latest styles and one’s own tastes. Situated on the sunny side of a premier road Between the Commons; a highly sought-after, exclusive and wonderfully quiet street just off Wandsworth Common, a quarter mile from the mainline train station and close to both Bellevue and Northcote Roads.
The house has delightful proportions and some lovely original features but, save for a new-ish front main roof, needs complete modernisation. Subject to planning, it has tremendous scope for extension to the side and rear of the kitchen, into the rear loft and of course beneath the house by way of basement conversion, all of which have been carried out on numerous houses on this street.
The house has a wide sunny south-facing garden (also very open to the west), with side access and passage from the front, offering options for bikes store, cloakroom and utility area as part of any extension works. On the ground floor are two spacious reception rooms, a kitchen and adjoining breakfast room. Upstairs are five double bedrooms a bathroom/WC and a large rear loft.
The house is just fifty yards away from the green expanses and recreational facilities of Wandsworth Common and is within easy reach of excellent schools such as Northcote Lodge, Honeywell, Thomas’, Belleville, and Broomwood Hall as well as numerous local nurseries and the recently established Bolingbroke Academy. Transport is excellent with Wandsworth Common a quarter of a mile away providing direct trains to Victoria, Clapham Junction and London Bridge, whilst Clapham South Tube (Northern Line) and Clapham Junction are also within a mile. The 319 bus stops on the edge of the common giving direct access to Chelsea. Fashionable Northcote and Bellevue Roads are both close by and provide a superb selection of specialist shops, bars/restaurants and a thriving weekend street market.
