Property description

A unique and historic double fronted detached period property in a wonderful location overlooking Wimbledon Common, with walled gardens and an annexe.

This beautiful double fronted six bedroom detached house is set back from the road behind electric gates with off street parking and an integral garage to the side. The property is set in picturesque grounds with wonderful views over Wimbledon Common and towards Wimbledon Village.

The house dates back to circa 1790, and was extended and occupied in the late 19th Century by Walter Bagehot, who served as the editor of The Economist for many years. At the turn of the 21st Century the house underwent a major refurbishment and further extension. The property now offers generous, well designed lateral living and entertaining space across three floors with a self-contained annexe perfect for guests or a home office.

The property opens into a spectacular entrance hall featuring a graceful curved staircase creating a wonderful sense of light and space. To the front is a generous bay fronted study/reception room and an elegant drawing room bathed in natural light with French windows opening to the main part of the garden and a wonderful open fire place with a marble surround. A formal dining room is accessible from both the kitchen and the drawing room and features striking floor tiles believed to have come from the Houses of Parliament. This beautiful dining space overlooks the well maintained private mature walled garden that wraps around the side of the house.

To the rear is a bespoke Martin Moore luxury handmade kitchen with an extensive range of units and cupboards with stone work surfaces, fully integrated appliances plus a central island and a circular fitted dining table. The stone flooring incorporates piped underfloor heating. Full height glass sliding doors open to a large paved terrace leading to a shaded outside dining space beneath a large stone pergola with climbing vines and gothic arches.

The utility room is conveniently located off the kitchen with access to both the integral garage and the driveway with off street parking for several cars. There is also a useful cellar offering excellent storage space and there are two cloakrooms.

Upstairs, on the first floor to the side, is an impressive principal bedroom suite with green views across Wimbledon Common, a fully fitted dressing room and a generous en suite bathroom with both a bathtub and rain shower. To the front is a guest suite with a walk in wardrobe and a stylish en suite shower room which also enjoys wide open views of the Common. There is an additional double bedroom alongside and a further shower room opposite. On the top floor are two generous bedrooms, a further bathroom and accessible storage space.

The annexe contains a sixth bedroom, a wet room and a sitting room, currently used as a home office.

We have been told that this property has no cladding.
