Manor Gardens, Larkhall Rise, Clapham
Best and final offers invited by midday, Tuesday 30 March 2021.
This high-ceilinged ground floor apartment within a feature-rich historic mansion block (originally built as generous holiday residences for Buckingham Palace staff) measures in at 1264 square feet, and delivers three double bedrooms, a generous kitchen/diner, and a grand bay-windowed front reception room.
The flat has a very long lease and also enormous communal gardens - with direct and side access.
Find it in classy Clapham. You’re really close to Clapham Old Town and to Clapham Common, and you're pleasingly surrounded by stations - Wandsworth Road, Clapham Common, Clapham North and Clapham High Street stations are five to 15 minutes by foot. You’ve got every commute covered whether under or over ground! Buses are brilliant in these parts too.
In the main original door and your own front door is set to your right. From the hall take a right for the formal front reception room of over 14 feet each way. Alcove shelving and a handsome original fireplace make for a great first impression. Stripped floorboards feature here and throughout the hall.
Next along the hall you’ve got the double-aspect kitchen/diner which stretches over 18 feet. Fitted units are plentiful and paired with wooden counters.
Travelling through the flat, next on your right is the property’s windowed bathroom (we’re loving the central position of this - between the living and sleeping areas) with sash window, modern white sanitary ware and bright yellow square tiles. A handy cupboard’s next door, then it’s another right for the first double carpeted bedroom of over 11 feet by 10 feet, with a built-in closet.
The second bedroom is also right of the hall - this one’s over 14 feet by nearly 10 and has a pale carpet as next door (boards are underneath should you prefer them).
At the end of the hall, open into the largest bedroom - of over 14 feet by over 13 feet. This one has stripped floorboards, a grand fireplace with beautiful tiled hearth, and deep bespoke built-in alcove wardrobes.
Access the delightful communal garden areas from both the kitchen/diner and the master bedroom. You've also got externally-accessed storage demised to the flat, for bikes and the like.
Clapham has a strong restaurant scene. Local good ones include Minnow, Zumbura, St Clair, Trinity and Upstairs. You’ve got wine bars and pubs galore locally too: The Sun, Old Town Tavern and Prince of Wales to name a few.
Of a Saturday, stroll all of 10 minutes to Venn Street Market (Barsito for cosy tapas is great here too, and Venn Street Records is a hip hangout).
Little ones or thinking of? Local highly-regarded ones include Clapham Manor, Lark Hall and Macauley primaries.
