Comments from the owner:
What do you love most about your home?
We had seen a number of properties on this street before we zeroed in on this one only because we loved the fact that it offered a unique feeling of space, light and living similar to a house while paying the modest price of a flat. The unique location and end-of-terrace aspect of the property offered a lot of additional internal (larger than average living rooms on this street, high ceilings) and external space(serves as useful storage space), including rear access to the side-alley, allowing access to bikes and storage spaces without having to go through the main entrance.
The second and most important aspect of our flat is the unique, extended terrace that allows us to dine outside or entertain friends, bringing the outdoors quite conveniently to your doorstep.
Why are you moving?
With our kids getting older, we feel the need for more outdoor space, which is the only reason why we have decided to move.
What do you love about the area?
Apart from the proximity to schools and transport links (both overground and underground links into central/northern London and Gatwick/Heathrow airport), we love the strong sense of community in the neighbourhood, whether it is the friendly meeting points at Costa coffee shop or the local supermarkets, safe bike paths to Wimbledon/Raynes Park and beyond, fun football sessions with friends at the local parks and playgrounds (John Innes, Dundonald), ease of access to tennis courts (Wilton, John Innes) and David Lloyds Leisure centre- it's all quite friendly, community-oriented and conveniently located.
We love that our home offers everything at our doorstep in order to work, relax, socialise and enjoy the lush, green spaces that Wimbledon offers without going too far into suburbia.
