Prospect Place was an 18th century estate with formal gardens and spectacular views and what is now Prospect House was built in 1867. Acquired by the present owner in 1995, the house underwent meticulous restoration under supervision of the Edward Hill Partnership, the innate character of the building preserved and complemented by a traditional approach to the interiors.
The grand reception hall with distressed limestone floor and wide oak main staircase is an outstanding feature of the house and leads to the 2 elegant formal reception rooms, the well-equipped kitchen/breakfast room and the handsome conservatory/sitting room.
Upstairs, on the 1st floor there are 3 suites including the beautifully bright master bedroom with its elegant ladies' bathroom, smart gentlemen's shower/steam room and a custom-fitted hardwood dressing room. There is also a separate ladies' dressing room, and at the end of the corridor, also accessible from a separate rear staircase, a staff flat. On the 2nd floor a large versatile studio room with reinforced floor is currently used as an office suite but could also be suitable as a play room, gym, billiards room or media room or could be sub-divided as additional bedroom and bathroom space.
The principal reception rooms and bedrooms enjoy a
bright southerly aspect with lovely views over the gardens and beyond towards the Epsom Downs.
The grounds extend to almost two acres and from the
rear enjoy spectacular panoramic views to the south.
Wimbledon is renowned for the All England Tennis Club and the Tennis Championships. It is also one of the most fashionable residential addresses in London being a picturesque and semi-rural area where 'town meets country'. It is favoured not only by Londoners but also by those from abroad who work in the City, but who want more space than can be obtained in the centre of London. The area offers an unrivalled selection of recreational facilities including several golf courses, riding stables, tennis and squash clubs, and first class schools for all ages which include, in particular, King's College School, Wimbledon High School and the Marymount International School. Located on the outskirts of Wimbledon Village, the house is within walking distance of several of the best schools and it is well placed for easy access to mainline stations from where there are frequent train services to Central London and the City. Heathrow and Gatwick airports are 17 miles and 27 miles away respectively.
