This wide, well-maintained, Edwardian, end-of-terrace house occupies a sunny, corner position in the usual catchment for Belleville School. Extended into the loft and garden, it offers generous family accommodation, retains lovely period features and has useful side access to its south-facing garden. Positioned just yards from Clapham Common West Side, close to fashionable Northcote Road and good transport links to The City and West End. No Chain.

With its wide, attractive frontage and side access, this corner house already affords the owner something different from what the rows of local Victorian terraces offer; separate reception rooms large enough to operate on their own plus the ability to bring family bikes straight into the garden – a feature shooting up many buyers’ wish lists. The property retains beautiful Edwardian features to include fireplaces, ceilings cornices and roses, stained glass, doors, windows and staircase detailing, yet has been attractively modernised and decorated to create a warm and appealing family home. On entering the house, you arrive in a wide hall – perfect for parking the buggy and with room for storing coats and shoes. To the front is a wide square sitting room and behind, a separate dining room; both have fireplaces, high ceilings, beautiful large windows and oak flooring. To the rear, a slick and well-equipped, fitted kitchen was installed recently and this connects through to a bright, rear extension which serves as a garden/breakfast room and has a lovely, high, vaulted ceiling and folding glass doors to the garden. The garden faces south and is also open to the west so has a sunny disposition for some of the day. It has a handy side gate from Canford Road, ideal for bike access but also for gardening and other works. It also features a brick wall surround, planted flower border and artificial grass to ensure low maintenance.

Ceiling height throughout the ground floor is even and high – another clear benefit to this period’s style. Upstairs this continues with one, level, first-first floor landing serving three bedrooms and a modern shower room around a central landing. From here a spiral staircase leads up to the converted loft which sites a generous fourth bedroom with a bathroom en-suite and spacious eaves storage. Additional storage can be found in a useful cellar beneath the hall.

The house is positioned yards from the green expanses and recreational facilities of Clapham Common West Side, in the area known as “Between the Commons”. Fashionable Northcote Road’s delightful array of specialist shops, bar/cafés and restaurants is the epicentre of the community and is very close by (a few hundred yards away). There are numerous good local schools and nurseries in the local vicinity, including the outstanding-rated Belleville Primary School, and this house has been in its catchment area in recent years. Belleville is a feeder school for the state-run Bolingbroke Academy (secondary), so good-quality, state education, all the way through from 4 years -18 years, is possible from this location. There are also excellent, transport facilities with Clapham Junction mainline and Clapham South tube stations both being approximately three quarters of a mile away. The house is offered with no forward chain.
