3 bedroom apartment for sale

Southey Road, London, SW19


Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Share of Freehold

Situated on the ground floor of an impressive Grade II-listed school, quietly set back from Southey Road and close to the centre of Wimbledon, is this incredibly bright three-bedroom loft-style apartment with off-street parking. It has approximately 1,548 sq ft of internal accommodation arranged over two levels and was architecturally remodelled in 2014 to a design by architect Luis Trevino. The property is offered chain free.

The early-Georgian architectural style of the building is one that adapts itself most readily to modern requirements of light, ventilation and space. Entry is to a large living room with double-height ceilings and enormous west-facing sash windows.

The design maintains an open, lateral flow across both levels, accentuated in scale by engineered oak floorboards throughout, and afforded a versatility in arrangement by sliding pocket doors . The open-plan kitchen/diner has Caeserstone Quartz worktops and Neff appliances, and plenty of well-considered storage solutions. To the right is a guest WC.

At the north end of the ground floor is a flexible bedroom space with study area integrated beneath a set of floating oak steps. These ascend via a landing level with french windows to a small private terrace, and to a first-floor mezzanine/dressing area with built-in wardrobes.

On the first floor are two double-bedrooms, a wet-room, and further storage space, and at the far end, a large family bathroom with free-standing bath, walk-in shower and one-way glass walls. A lovely bespoke oak staircase provides secondary access to the lower levels.

There is underfloor, zoned central heating throughout, and the refurbishment included all new electrics and plumbing. The property also has video entry and is fully alarmed.

A full external renovation of the building was completed in late 2016 and has been fully funded. The building has a full-time caretaker and landscape gardener, a fully equipped gym and sauna, and there is private off-street parking for residents.

The building is located on the corner of Southey Road and Pelham Road, close to Wimbledon’s extensive range of shops, cafes and restaurants, and the popular South Park Gardens area. The green open spaces of Wandle Meadow Nature Park are within fifteen minutes’ walk. The area is renowned for its outstanding primary and secondary schools, most notably, the highly rated King’s College School and Wimbledon High School.

Transport links for the area are excellent. South Wimbledon station is a six-minute walk and runs Northern Line Underground services direct to Waterloo, London Bridge, Bank, Charing Cross and Kings Cross St Pancras. Wimbledon mainline station is approximately 10 minutes’ walk and runs Thameslink services to London St Pancras International, District Line Underground services via Earls Court and London Victoria, and national rail services to Clapham Junction in approximately seven minutes and London Waterloo in around 15 minutes.

Lease Length: approx. 96 years (125 years from December 1988)
