Property description

This recently-refurbished, imposing Victorian house, extended into the loft and garden, offers substantial, bright and well-balanced, accommodation over three floors and is an ideal turn-key family home in one of the prime streets in The Triangle. It is situated in a convenient yet leafy location close to both commons, good schools, and the train/tube links at Clapham South, Wandsworth Common and Balham, where numerous good shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants can also be found.

This handsome and wide, square-bayed, Victorian house oozes curb-appeal and occupies a prime position just by Nightingale Square in the heart of the Nightingale Triangle. Extended into the loft and into the side return of the garden, it now provides spacious family accommodation and in very good condition throughout. The house is entered through a small front garden with railings and a beautiful front door and hallway retaining original stained glass, mosaic-tiled floor and ornate cornice and tablatures over the doors The ground floor provides a wide and generous separate front reception room with high ceiling and lovely wide bay window; to the rear is a spacious and extended kitchen/family/dining room with fireplace, beautiful parquet wood floor, a lovely newly installed modern kitchen with integrated appliances and ample space for sitting and dining areas. It has two skylights in the extension (one of them is huge) and fully folding glazed doors to the rear garden which is mainly paved with surrounding planted borders. It faces Northwest and so benefits from good afternoon and early evening summer sun in addition to some morning sun and has a lovely open feel. There is a handy newly installed ground floor WC at the top of the cellar which in turn has been made into a clean dry utility room.

Upstairs the layout is excellent as there are four double bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms (one on each of the three floors). Two of the bath/shower rooms are new. Further original features upstairs include fireplaces windows and doors. There is scope (and precedent on the street) for extending further on top of the rear section of the house for a fifth bedroom and further bathroom (or two rooms) if required (STPP). Recent works carried out include installation of a new kitchen, two newly-installed bathrooms, a new central heating / hot water system and newly fitted carpets to the bedrooms and stairs. The property has also been extensively redecorated inside and out and has 4k CCTV installed to both front and rear.

Calbourne Road is an immensely sought-after tree-lined street of Victorian houses positioned close to Nightingale Square in the heart of the Nightingale Triangle. Both Wandsworth and Clapham Commons are easily reached on foot and transport links are excellent with a choice of Wandsworth Common mainline, Clapham South tube or Balham mainline/tube stations to whisk you into the City/West End (each being approximately half a mile away). It is also convenient for good schools such as Northcote Lodge, Eaton House, Broomwood Hall and Holy Ghost as well as numerous local nurseries. There is an ever-increasing range of specialist shops, bar/restaurants and a thriving street market on nearby Northcote and there is a further selection on Bellevue Road’s pretty parade. High-street convenience shopping including Waitrose, Marks & Spencer and Sainsbury’s can be found at Clapham South and Balham.
