Sudbrooke Road SW12
Between the Commons
This outstanding architect-designed family home, featured in Homes and Gardens in 2019, has been transformed through a programme of sensational contemporary refurbishment and extension. Naturally wide and semi-detached, it now boasts an amazing sense of light and space and also benefits from off-street parking and a delightful garden. It is just shy of 3000 SQ. FT (not one of which is underground!) and is situated in a wonderfully quiet and highly sought-after street Between the Commons, close to Northcote Road, excellent schools and transport facilities.
With high ceilings from front to back and substantial proportions throughout, these rare houses are naturally spacious but this one is exceptional. Its jaw-dropping design, top-quality interior styling and spectacular structural alteration has turned, this superb property into a magnificent family home. Set back from the road, the property’s front garden provides secure off-street parking, built-in bike store and handy side passage access to the rear courtyard.
Total renovation and reinvention have resulted in a wonderful ground floor where vast, impressive living areas have the versatility to be used as bright separate spaces and where excellent touches – such as the well placed utility room and cloakroom/WC – also show an eye for practicality. The space of the house flows effortlessly through high and extra-wide doorways whilst oak flooring and architectural Lutron-controlled lighting featuring throughout. The AV specification is high and Sonos is installed in the principal rooms. The wide hall leads into a large front reception, with fireplace and beautiful bay window leading through to a central TV/family room built around a glass atrium courtyard, complete with an architectural “living wall”, which brings fantastic light into the centre of the house. This is then open to the kitchen itself which is beautifully fitted and equipped with high-end appliances (Miele/Sub-Zero) and a filtration tap (for still and/or sparkling water) and has a large island and extensive storage cupboards. First-class, thoughtfully-designed joinery is evident in all ground floor rooms. To the rear there is a further casual sitting area from which folding glass doors lead to the garden. Even after the rear extension, the garden remains an excellent size (37’ x 23’) and is attractively planted around an artificial grass lawn with a further area for outdoor dining. It has extensive outdoor lighting and receives excellent natural light and sunshine from the West.
Upstairs, the hallways and stairs are wide and amazingly light thanks to a huge skylight flooding natural light into just the right place. On the first floor, the enormous main bedroom suite, which occupies both original front rooms, has been cleverly laid out and provides a bespoke walk-in dressing room and sumptuous en suite bath/shower room featuring large shower and freestanding bath. There are four further spacious double bedrooms, ideal for a growing family, three of which have built-in wardrobes, the fourth being a lovely light guest double room with unique dormer side window. From here there is access to the front eaves’ storage with a further useful rear loft space accessible from the landing. There are two further bath/shower rooms all fitted to a high contemporary standard.
There is, of course, potential to add a basement floor which, given the property’s substantial footprint, would take the overall floor area well in excess of 4000 square feet or more if dug under the garden.
Sudbrooke Road is a quiet, leafy and highly-prized road which runs parallel to Thurleigh Road, within walking distance of the specialist shops, restaurants and thriving street market of both Northcote Road & Bellevue Road. There is an excellent choice of schooling; the state primary schools are in high demand whilst a number of private educational establishments have made their mark in the area. Public transport links are by way of various bus routes and excellent rail connections to Victoria from Wandsworth Common Station or the Northern Line connections to the City / West End via the underground at Clapham South, each of which are within half a mile. The green open spaces and recreational facilities of both Clapham and Wandsworth Commons are very close by.
