An exquisite example of an ‘Arts & Crafts’ Queen Anne Revival-style house, typical of the 1870s period, with a distinctive and dramatic steeple tower, situated in the heart of Putney.
Grade II listed, and featuring elaborate finial and bargeboard detailing, and a with breath-taking drawing room designed by Leonard Francis Wyburd RA (one of Britain’s leading Arts & Crafts furniture designers),
this house is a rare opportunity to acquire a home with a significant architectural background.
The entrance to the property is both elegant and imposing. An intricately gabled porch leads into the impressive entrance hall where the ceilings reach to over 13ft in height and an emerald green colour mosaic floor stretches the full length of the hallway. The reception space on the ground floor comprises a sumptuous wood panelled, formal dining room and a glorious dual-aspect drawing room which covers the full depth of the house at over 30ft long. The bright kitchen/breakfast room sits at the rear of the house overlooking the garden and is fitted with a traditional 4-door Aga cooker. Other features on this floor include an elegant study with parquet flooring and a guest WC.
The reception space continues on the lower ground floor. Decorated in a moroccan theme, this part of the house offers a more informal, relaxed ambience comprising a TV room and wine cellar. There is also ample storage on this level and a extensive utility room, discreetly tucked away. There is also access to the garden from this floor.
A grand, stone staircase leads to the first floor from the entrance hall. At the first landing, one enters a bright and glorious reception room/hall with triple doors to a balcony overlooking the garden. The remainder of the first and second floors are made up of the seven well-proportioned bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The staircase ascends further up into the striking tower, which gives the house its name and offers superb 360 degree views across Putney and London beyond.
The beautiful garden is over 100ft long with a paved area for al-fresco entertaining and an expansive lawn area surrounded by mature trees and shrubs.
St Johns Avenue runs parallel to Upper Richmond Road, and the property is located between Putney Hill and Carlton Drive within 300 metres of Putney High Street. The options of Putney mainline station and East Putney District line tube station are closeby, as well as an array of coffee shops, bars and restaurants.
