This unique semi-detached Victorian home (c.1875), with potential for extension (STPP), occupies a wide and sunny plot with a lovely south-facing garden. Conveniently sandwiched between fashionable Northcote Road and Wandsworth Common’s greenery, it’s half a mile from Clapham Junction and in the likely Belleville School catchment.
It is among the earliest of existing houses between the commons and has been lovingly maintained over a long period of ownership. It retains an abundance of charming original features including winding staircase, fireplaces and high ceilings (most notably in the elegant double reception room) and offers an incoming purchaser numerous opportunities to extend; sideways (and possible even two storeys) into the 8’ wide side passage (which currently has a walk-through bike and storage shed); upwards at the rear to further extend a partly-converted loft space and outwards at the rear to enlarge the kitchen/family area which currently has a bright conservatory extension. Two similar properties very close by have also converted their basements, which, thanks to the width of the footprint, extends their floor area considerably.
The rear garden is stunning – wonderfully wide, with a huge variety of trees and shrubs in the property’s lovely south-facing rear aspect. Upstairs are five bedrooms, a bathroom and shower room. One of the top bedrooms (converted from part of the attic) has kitchen units making it versatile for a live-in nanny or guests.
Salcott Road, runs immediately off Northcote Road and this house is located on the south side of the section leading up to Wandsworth Common, with its numerous amenities. Excellent transport links can be found at Clapham Junction, which has direct services into both The City and the West End. The house is only yards from Northcote Road with its numerous restaurants, bars and shopping facilities. The house is in the likely catchment for the highly-rated Belleville primary school and very close to Bolingbroke Academy.
