Property details

A spacious three double bedroom freehold house with a garage, perfectly located close to Abbeville Village and within walking to distance to Clapham High Street, Brixton and Balham, appealing to purchasers contemplating moving to all three areas. Maple Close is a private cul-de-sac, quietly tucked away, just off leafy and peaceful Clarence Avenue.

The ground floor comprises a bright entrance hall, a convenient modern shower room, a contemporary galley kitchen with a pantry and an incredibly bright and spacious reception room, providing ample room in which to relax and dine. Glass doors allow light to flood the room and the space to flow seamlessly onto the patio garden, this sunny patio is low-maintenance and is the ideal spot in which to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Upstairs, the three bedrooms are all well-proportioned and all comfortable doubles with some handy built-in storage. The master bedroom is particularly large and benefits from a stylish Juliet balcony which offers views over the leafy neighbouring gardens. A stylish and contemporary family bathroom completes the rooms within the property.

With nearly 1400 square feet of internal space on a private road, a large garage plus a south-west facing garden, the house is a rare find and is sure to appeal to a wide range of purchasers.

Originally built in the 1970’s for city workers who lived outside of London as a fantastically located pied-à-terre, the house has been tastefully redecorated by the current owners and is perfect for anyone looking to move in hassle-free, and stamp their own mark over time. The location is ideal; an attractive and sleepy cul-de-sac with no parking fees, sought after for its proximity to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants in Abbeville Village, Clapham High Street and Brixton Village. The bars and restaurants of Acre Lane are a short walk away and within a ten minute stroll down the road, you have the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offering fabulous nightlife and culinary delights. The green open spaces of Clapham Common are also a short stroll. In the other direction within fifteen minutes, you have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and excellent transport links. Potential purchasers will benefit from the Northern Line (Clapham North and Clapham Common tube stations), the Victoria Line (Brixton tube station) and the overground service at Clapham High Street station.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common sits at its centre and is always buzzing with activity. There’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. It rarely feels overcrowded here, despite the abundance of things to do, and Clapham endures as one of the most desirable places to live in south London. The local schools are excellent and the transport options second to none, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station.
