Virtual Open House recording available - please enquire.
An impressive family home on a no-through road on the ever popular Shaftesbury Estate, a cluster of roads between Battersea Park and Lavender Hill.
With 4 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a double length reception room and contemporary kitchen with bi-fold doors leading onto a private garden, this home is perfectly appointed for the modern family. The current owners have meticulously upgraded the decor from top-to-bottom, complementing the traditional period features with contemporary touches to create a beautiful space to live in. The property also benefits from new double-glazing, high ceilings and a ground floor WC.
Schooling is well provided for, with Shaftesbury Park and John Burns primary schools both within a 5-minute walk, and the renowned Eaton House independent school, the Ofsted 'Outstanding'-rated Macaulay CoE Primary School, and the Lycee-linked Ecole de Wix, all within a 15-minute walk.
For leisure, the open green spaces of Clapham Common and Battersea Park are within walking distance, whilst the mixture of independent and well-known restaurants, cafes, bars and shops in Lavender Hill, Clapham Old Town and Battersea Power Station are also easily accessible.
Day-to-day practicalities are taken care of by a Coop Food store on Lavender Hill, whilst public transport is available from both Queenstown Road, Battersea Park and Clapham Junction train stations, many bus routes, and close-by Santander Cycles docking stations with cycle super highway into Central London.
Words from the owners
What do you love most about your home?
We love the spacious feeling of the house, split over a number of "half-floors' which makes our home feel really open with plenty of space for everyone to spread out - be that for family or visiting friends. The kitchen is great for entertaining and the large double reception room is a beautiful space for dining or relaxing with a film.
The house itself has a great mix of period and modern features, tonnes of character, and the high ceilings make it feel light and airy from top to bottom.
It's a very quiet road - it's barriered off which prevents heavy traffic and there's plenty of parking!
Why are you moving?
We are moving out of London to get greater access to the countryside - especially with our young and excitable dog! We've loved the location, with such easy access to London center and both of our workplaces, but both of us now are able to work remotely and after 10 years we are ready to move away from the excitement of the big city!
What do you love about the area?
The location of the house is perfect, with so much within walking distance! Both Clapham Common and Battersea Park only a short distance away - each is amazing for walks and relaxing. Clapham Old Town is brilliant for fine dining and evening drinks (try No.32 ), whilst the Battersea Power Station redevelopment has a lovely community feel. Vagabonds wine bar is a regular haunt on a late evening, along with the Battersea Brewery for Beers following a dog walk. For the fitness enthusiast Boom Cycle is a great way to dust off the weekend as well as running a lap along the Thames Path. This will only become better once the Northern Line extension opens in 2021.
Getting in and out of London is also easy by car and via train, with easy access to Queenstown Road, Battersea Park and Clapham Junction stations, not to mention the key bus routes and new dedicated cycle roadway.
