If you hanker for an easy commute either by car or train, feast your eyes on this king sized house that's brimming with light and high ceilings. You have bundles of living space, five bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cellar, converted loft and a utility room. All bedrooms are doubles, while a bathroom and shower room exists on both the first and second floors. There's a generous sprinkling of original features and charm including a full set of fireplaces - both polished slate and cast iron.
The front door, with pretty leaded lights, is up a short paved path. There's more original detail in the hallway and a big double reception with curved bay window to the front sits on the right with wide connecting doors. Both rooms also have matching original fireplaces. There is cornicing, ceiling roses and picture rails to maintain the tone. Double doors lead rear to a sun room/utility room. Back in the hallway (past a door to a decent sized tanked cellar) is an enormous kitchen/diner. Pretty pale worktops are matched with similar units and there is a five ring range big enough to handle family meals. An open arch links right round to the sun room/utility space which has garden access and two large overhead Velux windows - a nice spot for a scan of the morning papers.
On the first floor are three bedrooms and a fresh, modern styled shower room (cleverly installed in what was once the wc). The master spreads lavishly over the entire width of the house to the front and is decorated in pale shades. The room behind is a good size double, with neutral walls and a lovely rear aspect. Next is the shower room and then at the rear of the house is bedroom three, another double with a garden view. All rooms are graced with period fireplaces. Up at the top is another double bedroom and bathroom on the rear landing, whilst a clever loft conversion makes way for bedroom five, a king-size double with dual aspect (including two Velux windows) and a friendly décor.
You just can't lose with this location. It leaves you within a stone’s throw of Clapham, Abbeville Village and Brixton. The 137 is just around the corner and will whisk you to Sloane Square and Knightsbridge. Clapham North tube is about 5 minutes walk for the Northern line or you've got the Victoria line in Brixton. Clapham and the ever popular Abbeville Village are but a 10 minute stroll from your front door. Clapham High Street will keep you busy whatever the weather - it'll take you the first three years to sample all their cuisine (Carmen's tapas is our fave). Khamsa is close by for some fab Algerian cooking (it's getting great reviews) and you can walk it off on Clapham Common. In the other direction, Brixton's all a buzz with the newly developed Windrush Square offering a marvellous place to sit, chat and drink coffee. This is before we mention the ocean of funky bars, cafes and restaurants on offer - we love Fujiyama and Franco Manca for a bite followed by a stroll around Pop Brixton for a pint or two whilst perusing local businesses.
