4 bedroom semi-detached house for saleHouse II, Streatham, London, SW16
This is one of two newly-built houses that can be found in a quiet, tucked away location behind the villas that line Streatham Common. Designed by architect Rafael Borrego and constructed to impressively high standards, they are a rare example of an architect-led, new-build development in London.
The design cuts a striking low profile in its secluded setting that combines elegant narrow brick slips and zinc cladding, hiding internal monochrome courtyards within. Each house comes with parking for a number of cars and private external space. This particular house, the smaller of the two but measuring around 2,328 sqft internally, has four bedrooms and a private section of lawn as a well as a large internal courtyard.
Accommodation is arranged over two levels, with living space at ground level and bedrooms below. The house is entered from the shared gravel drive to a large landing with plenty of space for shoes and coats. The main room is loosely subdivided in a flexible arrangement to accommodate a dining table, seating area and a galley kitchen. The limed-oak floors, heated underneath, create a warm contrast to the industrial facade. Double doors open to a private section of lawned garden.
Downstairs, the bedrooms feel cool and private. Each has its own access to the central courtyard, a wonderfully conceived space that is laid with slate slabs and surrounded by the white glazed brick which is not seen from the front aspect. The master bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and a large en-suite bathroom.
The house was completed in 2018 to an immaculate standard, using an artful collection of high quality, innovative materials. The interiors are neutral, with light oak wooden floors throughout the main areas, neutral paintwork and simple, fine-profile windows, employed to create a bright, modern and versatile family home.
The house is located on the south side of Streatham Common. The shallow sloping lower (western) half of the common is mostly mowed grass, and the upper (eastern) half is mostly woodland with some small areas of gorse scrub and grassland. The eastern half has been designated a Local Nature Reserve. The Common had a long tradition of cricket playing from the 18th century, and the right to play cricket is enshrined in the Supplementary Act that brought the common into public ownership. The Common was home to the architect Thomas Ripley who built and lived at 10 Streatham Common South, now known as Ripley House, and Henry Tate, founder of the Tate Gallery and the Tate & Lyle sugar company lived at Park Hill.
Streatham Rail station is a short stroll across the Common, where Southern and Thameslink services go north to Luton and Bedford via Blackfriars, the City and Farringdon, and south to Wimbledon. Direct trains to London Bridge take around 24 minutes, whilst services to Blackfriars and Farringdon take around 21 minutes and 25 minutes respectively. Regular buses run along Streatham High Road to Brixton for connections to the Victoria Line.
