This magnificent double fronted semi-detached Heaver Estate house is located just a few metres from the glorious Tooting Bec Common with Tennis Courts, children’s play parks, ponds and the famous Tooting Lido. Having been lovingly looked after by the current owners, it now offers a new family a chance to live on one of the area’s most prominent roads, in one of the most attractive houses. This wonderful home has many of the traditional original features, especially in the two grand reception rooms either side of the splendid restored hallway. Both reception rooms have stunning Victorian fireplaces with working gas fires, high ceilings, intricate cornicing and large bay windows. The open-plan kitchen/family room, the ‘hub of the home’, has been thoughtfully designed for both family life and entertaining. The kitchen area has a double range, large island, travertine worktops, 2 sinks and plenty of built-in units. The dining/living area provides ample space for informal dining, relaxing and connects through French Doors to the 45ft garden. A useful utility room, with necessary appliances and more storage, provides more access to the garden and to a downstairs cloakroom. A final separate living room, currently used as a TV room, is found at the back of the house. The landscaped garden, which has subtle lighting installed also has a shed, raised beds, lawn, entertaining space on a terrace, mature tropical trees and bamboo. A secure passage runs down the side of the house connecting the front and back for easy access. All bedrooms are tastefully decorated, light and often feature built in cupboards. A handy study offers the ability to work from home or a quiet space for doing homework. There is also a large dry cellar with good head height.
Hillbury Road is one of the most sought after roads in the Heaver Conservation Area as it runs alongside Tooting Bec Common giving immediate access to the leisure activities the Common offers. Balham train station (National rail and Northern Line) is only 0.7miles away with Tooting Bec (Northern Line) even closer in the opposite direction. The area is served by Waitrose, Sainsburys, Co-op and Tesco, many independent coffee shops and cafes and restaurants. Education needs are served across all ages in the private and state sectors.
