This gorgeous Victorian villa (c.1875), with a whole heap of tempting potential for extension, occupies a deliciously wide and sunny plot with a glorious south-facing garden. Conveniently sandwiched between fashionable Northcote Road and Wandsworth Common’s greenery, it’s half a mile from Clapham Junction and is well located for the catchment of a number of state and private schools.
It is among the earliest of existing houses between the commons and has been well maintained over a long period of ownership. It retains an abundance of charming original features including a winding staircase, fireplaces and high ceilings (most notably in the elegant reception rooms) and offers an incoming purchaser numerous opportunities to extend; sideways (and possible even two storeys) into the 8’ wide front side passage (which currently has a walk-through lean-to), upwards into a very large loft and outwards at the rear to enlarge the kitchen/family area. Much of this work has been done to the neighbouring properties but here you have the chance to design and build to your own tastes and requirements. Two similar properties very close by have also converted their basements, which, thanks to the width of the footprint, extends their floor area well over 3000 square feet.
The rear garden is a fantastic size (both wide and deep) and is among some of the largest in the streets off Northcote Road. It enjoys a lovely south-facing rear aspect and receives day-long sunshine. Upstairs are four bedrooms (one currently used as an additional kitchen with staircase to the garden) plus a bathroom/WC.
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 about half a mile away 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.
