An absolutely breathtaking double fronted house that has been stunningly remodelled by the current owners to give over 4,300 sq ft of pristine living space.
The back of the house has had a most inspired extension, the most eye catching being the glass strip running down the middle of the ceiling and down the external wall, with the large floor to ceiling sliding glass doors on either side. This open plan kitchen/living room feels remarkably cosy despite its size, due to the obvious designated areas for relaxing, eating and cooking, whilst just off it is the very useful utility room. The contemporary kitchen has two sinks, a range cooker, plenty of built in appliances and a fantastic steel island unit. At the front of the house there are two formal living rooms either side of the wide hallway.
Upstairs there are seven bedrooms and four bathrooms, with the master having the bonus of a walk in wardrobe and generous en suite bathroom with his and her sinks.
An added luxury of this house is the very special wine cellar which winds its way down under one of the living rooms.
The south facing garden, which again has been beautifully landscaped by the current owners, has a large paved area off the kitchen that can even benefit from some shade on a hot sunny day via the large awnings that slide across from the house.
Terrapin Road is one of the most sought after roads in the Heaver Conservation area due to the lack of traffic and proximity to Tooting Bec Common. Balham train station (National Rail and Northern line) is only 0.6 miles away with Tooting Bec tube station (Northern line) a similar distance in the opposite direction. There is a huge variety of excellent shops, restaurants and bars in Balham and a great collection of primary and secondary schools in the area.
