Description

Oakfield is a beautiful six bedroom detached house with an impressive landscaped garden, set on the borders of Wimbledon Village.

The history of this property is fascinating, originally designed by Baillie Scott, the highly renowned English architect and artist who was famous for his Arts and Craft Voysey style reminiscent of the neo Georgian period. His unique style and attention to detail is evident in many of the property's features, including the fireplaces in the study and oakwood staircases.

Arranged over two floors, the house offers excellent lateral space, ideal for family living and formal entertaining.

The elegant reception hall gives immediate impact upon entry, offering plenty of space and generous fitted cupboards for storage. The hallway leads to a double aspect drawing room, which has French doors opening out onto the balcony, a study and a spacious kitchen/dining area with ample lighting coming from the large glass window doors, and rear garden.

The kitchen has been fitted with a variety of modern conveniences, including large island units with a number of useful cupboards and drawers, and integrated appliances, such as a gas range with extractor above. There are two wood burning stoves in separate rooms- one in the kitchen/dining room and the second in the main reception area. Walking through the kitchen leads you to a versatile reception room with ample lighting from the floor to ceiling windows and a door to the garden. A utility room and cloakroom are also on this floor.

To the rear of the ground floor is the heated swimming pool stretching an impressive 33ft.

Up on the first floor is the impressive master bedroom, complete with a walk in wardrobe and en suite offering a bath, shower and twin basin. There are a further five double bedrooms, four of which are en suite, a family bathroom and a loft providing ample storage space on this floor.

The outstanding private landscaped garden surrounds the house and enjoys a wide variety of plants and mature trees, as well as a south facing aspect. The installed irrigation system helps to keep the gardens wonderfully maintained and there are several seating areas provided, ideal for entertaining and enjoying the summer sun. In additon, there is a spacious tennis court to the west side of the property grounds.

The front of the house has a gated driveway with plenty of space for several cars, as well as a double garage. In addition, CCTV cameras have been installed at the property and there are also security gates at the top of the main drive.
