Property details

A beautifully presented split level, two double bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a stunning roof terrace that has 360 degree panoramic views over the London skyline. This characterful home is nestled on the upper floors of a converted Victorian terraced townhouse on a tree-lined residential street, ideally located a short stroll from Clapham Old Town and perfectly positioned between the green open spaces of Clapham Common and Battersea Park.

With 950 square feet of internal living space, the property offers generous proportions throughout, which is exceptionally rare to find. This gorgeous apartment is in fantastic condition and has architectural features that allow the property to stand out from the other split-level two bedroom flats in this price bracket.

This sociable property has an entrance on the ground floor with stairs that lead to the first-floor landing. A spacious reception room spans the entire width of the building with a feature fireplace, a bay window, parquet flooring and high ceilings, which all contribute to confirm that this room will be used on a regular basis. Sitting adjacent is a comfortable double bedroom with another period fireplace, lovely wooden flooring and views over the neighbouring gardens at the rear. A staircase meanders up through the property to the second floor and a beautiful contemporary eat-in kitchen diner, tucked away at the back of the building with a large skylight that floods natural light into the room. The kitchen has all you need in terms of mod cons and room for a dining table for anyone looking to entertain.

Natural light is a running theme throughout this split level home and the loft-style master bedroom is no exception, with multiple skylights, a large roof light and additional windows. Bespoke built-in cupboards and additional storage in the eaves offer fantastic storage solutions for the new purchasers and a modern en-suite bathroom completes the master suite.

Last but not least the retractable glass roof leads to the piece de resistance, a stunning private roof terrace with 360 degree panoramic uninterrupted views over the neighbouring rooftops and out across the London skyline. Access to private outside space is more important than ever and this secluded sun trap has plenty of room to host summer parties with a hidden retractable table built into the decking and space for heaters to ensure this sociable area can be used all year round, creating an extension to the already comfortable overall total internal square footage. It is clear a lot of thought and attention was applied to the conversion when the apartment was refurbished and features like the glass windows built into the hallways and the retractable glass roof that leads to the terrace, will ensure this property appeals to a wide range of potential purchasers.

The apartment is ideally located on Marmion Road, nestled in a sought-after set of peaceful residential streets adjacent to Clapham Common North Side and moments from Clapham Common. The new owners will benefit from being within walking distance to the boutique shops, cafes and restaurants in Clapham Old Town and Northcote Road. The weekend market on Venn Street and the local amenities on Clapham High Street are all within a short stroll and the local transport links are second to none. Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations (Northern Line) are both close by. Clapham Junction, Wandsworth Road, Clapham High Street, Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Overground Stations are all within a ten-fifteen minute stroll, coupled with excellent local bus services and the Super Cycle Highway through Clapham provide quick and easy access into the City, West End and Canary Wharf. The area further benefits from an excellent selection of independent and state schools within close proximity.

Chain-free and share of freehold.

Clapham area highlights

There’s something for everyone in Clapham and it draws an eclectic crowd. Clapham Common buzzes with activity and there’s a diverse mix of restaurants, shops, independent boutiques and nightlife, along with some wonderful architecture. The local schools are excellent and the transport options plentiful, with three London Underground (Northern Line) stations in close proximity and frequent London Overground trains from Clapham High Street station. 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.
