As you approach The Lodge, your eye is immediately drawn to the striking turret rising above the front entrance and the attractive brick arches on all sides that mirror the arched sash windows within the original house and entrance. Stepping inside you are greeted by a light and airy reception hall, where the high ceiling heightens the sense of space.
There are four bedrooms in total accessed on either side of the hall, retaining many period features in-keeping with the original character. On the left is the second bedroom, formerly a reception room before the recent rear addition, which benefits from a high ceiling and attractive twin arched sash windows to the front. Adjoining is the master bedroom with similar attributes, plus a built-in wardrobe which originally connected both rooms. There are delightful views of the secluded rear garden and access to the recently added en-suite shower room, which has been finished off in a contemporary design with a double shower, tiled walls and floor, plus full height storage cabinets. On the right hand side are two further generous bedrooms retaining cast iron fireplaces, high ceilings and arched sash windows - ideal for guests or as a study perhaps.
Leading off the rear hallway is a useful utility cupboard and a modern family bathroom. A side door provides access to the courtyard which apparently was the original entrance to the house. Walled and secluded, this offers an ideal area for a coffee and to catch the morning sun. At the end of the hallway you find the kitchen diner which was originally where the house ended prior to the current owner's improvements. In the dining area there is space for a table and chairs situated beneath the vaulted ceiling and skylight that casts good natural light. The kitchen is finsihed to an extemely modern and high specification with top of the range appliances and aenough space for both a seperate breakfast area as well as a dining space.
Saving the best for last, a wide arch opens into a contemporary sitting and dining room, carefully designed to be in-keeping with the original house and which extends to 31 ft. Architecturally designed in 2006, this rear addition almost doubles the overall accommodation, enhancing the flow of the property out to the garden. Quality oak flooring allows for practical daily use, as does the floor to ceiling storage along the rear wall. Ideal for entertaining family or friends, the 5 meters of glass folding doors are a striking feature that allows the outside in.
The terrace is made from old London brick, and there are two trees in the garden which are protected. They make the garden feel quiet and peaceful and have nuthatches nesting in them as well, which is very special as they are rare.
There is a valuable off-road parking space and there is also a vegetable patch and large shed at the end of the garden.
In the surrounding area, there is lots of green space, as well as children's parks close by. A short walk and you are on Wimbledon Common with Putney Heath, Wimbledon Park and Richmond Park all easily accessible, ideal for those afternoon walks
Popular local primary schools include The Albemarle, St Michael's CE & Our Lady Queen of Heaven R.C. Down the hill your will find Southfields Village, a popular area with local families offering a selection of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. Commuters will appreciate the District line tube station for easy access into Central London.
The Lodge is conveniently situated close to the A3 and the M25, for access to Heathrow and Gatwick airports. In the surrounding area there is an abundance of open space to explore with Richmond Park and beautiful Wimbledon Common offering stable facilities for horse riding enthusiasts. Wimbledon village is just a five-minute bus ride away, where there are lots of fantastic shops, restaurants and bars. It is also possible to walk through the common to get to Wimbledon Village, which takes around half an hour.
And of course, tennis fans will enjoy the proximity to the famous All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, which is just round the corner.
