Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A stunning early eighteenth century family home offering dramatic proportions, with a 103ft x 51ft garden and unparalleled views over Clapham Common.


Archway House is situated on the North Side of Clapham Common and close to all the wonderful shops and restaurants in Clapham Old Town and Clapham Common. There are many good schools in the area and transport is good either by bus or by underground train from Clapham Common providing Northern Line services.


Archway House, built between 1714 and 1720, is one of the finest early eighteenth-century houses in London. Unusual in scale, being seven bays wide, it benefits from a splendid view over Clapham Common, little changed since the 18th century. The interior is distinguished by the exceptional state of its original architectural features, fireplaces, sash-windows, panelling and staircase. It is both a historical landmark and an outstanding family home. The garden at the rear is approximately 103 ft long.

The elegant formal garden at the front is set behind fine period railings and a private drive has automated wrought-iron gates. Stone steps lead up to the generous reception hall. A large drawing room with a superb Queen Anne fireplace occupies the full depth of the house and has views of both front and rear gardens. There are two further panelled rooms on the ground floor. The lower-ground floor consists of a kitchen come family
dining room with access to both gardens, a charming formal dining room, a larder/wine-cellar and utility rooms.

The first floor has a magnificent reception room with antique parquetry floor and two further elegantly panelled rooms, and a fine antique fitted library. The second floor has a master bedroom suite with dressing room and bathroom and two further bedrooms with en suite bathrooms. A family breakfast room has a panoramic view over the common.

A ‘Chinese Chippendale’ staircase leads up to the third floor which has two large bedroom/sitting rooms, one with French windows on to a roof terrace, and both with en-suite shower rooms. The central space is a nursery/playroom/study with a fitted kitchen unit. There is scope to create an 8 or 9 bedroom house.

Square Footage: 7,433 sq ft
