This semi-detached house on a large plot has an exceptional position, with an outlook at the front onto ‘the Scope’, a leafy section of Wandsworth Common. To the rear, the view is over the mature and leafy 106ft garden with the gardens of Herondale Avenue and Frewin Road beyond, an expanse of greenery and open space.
The house has been in the same ownership for almost 40 years and offers width and lateral space, with well-proportioned rooms. There is exciting further potential to improve and develop further (subject to the appropriate permissions). On the ground floor, the house opens into a spacious central hallway which leads off to a coat cupboard, downstairs cloakroom and a study at the front. There are two spacious sitting rooms, both with original parquet floors and crittal windows. The reception room to the rear has french doors leading in to a bright conservatory, which opens out to the garden. The kitchen/dining room is bright, with the Aga giving the room a cosy feel. There is a pantry which also doubles as a useful utility room. There is a snug/further study to the rear of the kitchen with french doors out to the garden.
Upstairs, the rooms are accessed from the spacious landing. There are two adjoining bedrooms to the front, one of which is used as the main bedroom and has an en-suite shower room. There are two additional bright bedrooms, both with washbasins, which overlook the garden. In addition, there is a family bathroom with separate WC.
Upstairs, there are two generous double bedrooms with ample eaves storage, and another bathroom.
Lyford road is one of Wandsworth’s most favoured locations and situated on the doorstep of Wandsworth Common with the shops and restaurants of Bellevue Road close by. There are good transport links by train from Wandsworth Common Station into Victoria/Waterloo via Clapham Junction and by bus on Trinity Road. The area is extremely well served by both private and state schools and falls within the Beatrix Potter catchment area. There are also excellent local sporting amenities for children including Battersea Ironsides junior rugby, and The Spencer cricket and Magdalen Park tennis clubs.
