This wonderful four-bedroom house on Abbeville Road in Clapham has been subject of an exacting restoration by the current owners. Built circa 1875-1885, this handsome house with a redbrick façade has a wonderful balance of traditional charm and classic style with a beautiful and mature private rear garden. If you are looking to live on a street with an intimate, village feel that’s well connected to central London, this may well be the home for you.
Set behind a pretty privet hedge, you are immediately welcomed by the contrast of dark waxed original floorboards and the light whitewashed walls with ornate original ceiling plasterwork that has been lovingly brought back to life. The two reception rooms are interlinked via original oversized wooden doors and both rooms are well proportioned which is enhanced by the wonderful ceiling height in excess of 3 meters.
To the rear is the kitchen with integrated Miele appliances and plenty of space to cook and dine, a separate laundry cupboard and access down to a cellar of decent size. Bi-fold doors open out onto the private south-easterly facing garden which is over forty feet in length. The first-floor landing leads immediately into a double bedroom currently used as a library with bookshelves and a beautifully restored original fireplace. Next door is a large shower room with Lefroy Brooks brassware, bronze floor tiles complimenting the dark wooden floorboards and large natural oversized wall tiles.
To the front of the house is the master bedroom spanning nearly fourteen feet in width and also benefitting from ceilings over 3 meters in height and original fireplace. Bedroom two is next door with wonderful garden views from the window. And, on the top floor, another newly refurbished bathroom featuring a freestanding shower bath, and the light filled fourth bedroom with far reaching garden views over the neighbouring gardens. There is also a large loft which could be converted into a further bedroom and bathroom (subject to the usual planning permission being sought).
Tucked well away from busy roads and just a few minutes’ walk from Clapham Common underground station, the property is located on a quieter stretch of “Abbeville Village”, a short walk away from the main shopping and restaurant area where you’ll find butchers, bakers, delicatessens, a florist, beauty salons and barbers as well as other boutiques, not to mention a good sprinkling of cafes, restaurants and gastro pubs.
Abbeville Road’s nearest tube station is Clapham Common, which connects directly to both the West End and City via the Northern Line. From the station you can reach Leicester Square in 18 minutes and Bank underground station in 17 minutes.
