Full description

On the open sales market for the first time since 1886 is this five bedroom Victorian house built by and occupied by the renowned and well respected Victorian builder Walter Wallis.

The current owners took occupation as tenants in 1936 and it was not until shortly after the war that Mr Wallis allowed them to purchase the house in 1948 and it has remained in the family until the present day.

The unique and outstanding feature of the house is the 140' rear garden extending to a width of 63' at its widest, this exceptional space is ideal for a family and has enormous potential.

A wealth of original features can be found in the house including tessellated tiled floors, ceiling panels, fireplaces, cornicing, panelled doors and the ornately decorated Victorian WC.

Balham Park Road is a short stroll from the wide open spaces of Wandsworth Common and the independent shops and restaurants in Bellevue Road, SW17

Balham Park Road and the neighbouring streets were built in the 1860's by the renowned builders Walter Wallis and William Johnson, both of them lived in Balham Park Road, William lived in No.74 and Walter lived at No.26 Balham Park Road, they shared a builders yard behind No. 34.

Walter became very well known in London and went on to build The Apollo Theatre, a Grade II listed Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue, London. The Apollo opened in 1901 and was constructed by Walter in plain London brick, in keeping with the neighbouring streets.

The Coronet Theatre in Notting Hill Gate was also built by Walter to the designs of the well-known Theatre architect W.G.R. Srague and opened in 1898.

Walter was also responsible for both The Globe Theatre and The Queen's Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue.
