This substantially wide (22’), unextended Victorian house with south-facing garden offers huge scope for extension into the loft, side return and basement. It is situated in a prime spot off Wandsworth Common, Northcote Road’s shops and bar/restaurants, and within the current catchment of the highly-rated Belleville School, about a quarter mile from Clapham Junction.

These extra-wide two-storey Victorian houses were built c. 1880 and are some of the wider “villa” style houses off Northcote Road. This unextended example retains two handy separate front entrances each with their own hall which, together with an upstairs kitchenette, could make the house ideal for buyers wishing to live through “works”. The house is dated throughout and requires full modernisation but does retain some Victorian character including high ornate ceilings.

It currently provides two good reception rooms (which could be knocked together), a spacious kitchen/breakfast room (with excellent potential for side and rear extension) and a wide and sunny south-facing garden. There is also a ground floor shower/room/WC (which could be made into a utility/cloakroom) and a small storage cellar. Upstairs are three double bedrooms and a further bathroom/WC with a very large loft above capable of being converted into two further bedrooms and a bathroom (an ideal kids’ floor). There is also scope to dig a basement. All proposed extensions would be subject to obtaining the usual consents.

The house is situated on the part of Wakehurst Road between Wandsworth Common and Northcote Road in the area known as “Between the Commons”. The area is an extremely popular spot for families and is renowned for its numerous highly regarded schools including Belleville Honeywell and Bolingbroke Academy (secondary) – all in the state sector. There are numerous private schools and nurseries as well. Northcote Road provides a superb array of specialist shops (including many children-oriented boutiques) and a diverse range of bars, restaurants and cafes plus a thriving and fashionable weekend street market. Clapham Junction station is approx. half a mile away and provides frequent access to Victoria and Waterloo as well as numerous bus routes and high-street conveniences.
