Property details

A classic example of a four double bedroom Victorian house, this property on leafy Elms Crescent boasts over 2,000 square feet of internal living space and offers a great opportunity for a wide range of purchasers. Located within easy reach of Abbeville Village, Clapham High Street and Clapham South, this stunning terraced house will appeal to people contemplating moving to this area. With a varied array of cafes, restaurants, shops and transport links on the doorstep, purchasers will be spoiled for choice.

The house retains many original features enhanced by stylish additions such as the double-height ceiling at the entrance to the kitchen/diner designed by the previous architect owner. There is nonetheless an opportunity to stamp your own mark on the property.

The ground floor comprises a wonderfully bright and airy double-aspect reception, flooded with natural light thanks to the large bay window at the front and original patio door opening onto the garden at the back – both rooms with original fireplaces and beautifully corniced ceilings. Via the double height windowed “void” the hallway opens onto a spacious dining area and kitchen with ample storage and worktop space. French double doors create a seamless transition from inside to outside where purchasers will enjoy relaxing in the sunny and peaceful rear garden, which is over fifty feet in length. The private mature garden with lawn and flowerbeds on either side has a vine covered gazebo at the end for outdoor dining.

On the two upper floors are the four double bedrooms. The generous master bedroom runs the width of the property with a large bay window that allows natural light to flood into the room. The second and third double bedrooms overlook the private garden, sharing a family bathroom on the first floor. The bedroom on the second floor is accompanied by a second bathroom with shower. Stairs lead to an additional substantial loft room. Subject to the necessary permissions, re-designing this space and adding a side extension to the kitchen give the opportunity to add space and value to the existing layout.

This is an elegant home in an ideal location: a beautiful terrace on a sought-after street - close to the heart of Abbeville Village yet far enough away to retain a real sense of calm. The road is popular for its proximity to the shops, restaurants and cafes on Abbeville Road as well as Clapham South and Clapham High Street. Brixton is also within walking distance offering a huge range of shops, restaurants and amenities as well as quick access to the West End on the Victoria Line.

Freehold and chain-free.

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.
