A handsome Edwardian family home, which is wider than the usual between the commons home and is situated on a prime road offering excellent access to Northcote Road and Clapham Junction as well as outstanding local schools.
Upon entering the property on the ground floor, there is a large double reception room with two original fireplaces, oak flooring and a bay window to the front allowing for a lot of light. To the rear of this room are double doors leading onto the decked rear garden, which is a good size and isn’t overlooked directly from the rear. The kitchen is a good size, with ample storage and worktop space with room for a dining table. The property offers potential to extend to the side of the kitchen, subject to necessary consents.
From the ground floor living space, stairs lead down to the full basement extension with under-floor heating throughout. The space was formally used as a large family/media room but also benefits from a study with sound insulation (or 5th bedroom), fully equipped utility room/kitchen and a shower room.
On the first floor are two large double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes, a family bathroom with both bath and shower and a further bedroom to the front. The master suite is on the top floor and has a huge amount of floor space as well as eaves storage and also benefits from an en-suite bathroom.
Wakehurst Road is situated off Northcote Road in the highly sought-after 'between the Commons' area of Battersea. It is within easy reach of both Clapham South tube (0.6 miles) and Clapham Junction mainline station (0.7 miles) which offers fast and convenient access into Waterloo and Victoria (every 2 minutes during peak times).
The property is situated close to the outstanding local state primary schools, Honeywell and Belleville as well as Thomas' Parkgate and Eaton House.
All the bars, shops and restaurants on Northcote Road that make the area so popular are on your doorstep and both Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common are just a short walk away.
Battersea has a strong feeling of community and its popularity is continuing to grow, in part due to the development of the famous power station, the arrival of the American embassy and Apple’s London office.
