Property details

An attractive and perfectly located three-bedroom house, complete with a substantial, predominantly South-facing private garden, generous dimensions, two reception rooms and only minutes from Clapham, Balham and Tooting Bec Common.

The ground floor comprises a dual-aspect reception at the front, benefitting from a large bay window and rear French doors that allow the living space to flow seamlessly into the wide un-extended side-return and through to the garden. The hallway leads through to a further reception/ dining room at the rear and onto a generous, modern kitchen. The layout of the house is flexible and it would be easy to repurpose certain spaces to suit the needs of the purchaser and subject to the necessary permissions it may be possible to combine the rear reception and kitchen, opening the space up to a larger open-plan area. The ground floor is perfect for entertaining and hosting guests, with an idyllic outside space in which to savour the warmer months of the year.

The first floor provides two generous double bedrooms and a further bedroom at the rear. The two larger rooms are both complete with in-built storage and the larger spans the entire width of the house. The third room would be perfect as a home office, nursery or anything else the purchaser may require. A family bathroom nestled between the bedrooms completes this appealing property and there is substantial loft space that could be also converted to add value and increase the overall square footage (STPP).

Situated within easy walking distance of Balham and Clapham South tube stations, the property is perfect for anyone who wants to be close to the action, yet retain a sense of calm on a peaceful residential road. There are a number of Outstanding Ofsted-rated schools within close proximity. Balham underground station is located within a ten-minute walk, alongside a generous choice of restaurants, bars and shops. Clapham South and Clapham Common are also reachable in 18-minutes on foot, or an 8-minute cycle. Clapham High Street is not much further, providing a fantastic choice of restaurants and shops, the Ritzy Cinema and an Overground line at Clapham High Street Station. The green open spaces of Tooting Bec are also only minutes away, perfect for reconnecting with nature and walking the dog.

Chain-free and freehold.

Balham area highlights

Balham is buzzing with independent boutiques, cafes, coffee shops and happening restaurants. It has a slightly more relaxed, village feel than neighbouring Clapham and Brixton, but with enough going on to satisfy everyone's interests. Transport links are excellent, with both London Underground (Northern Line) and National Rail services from Balham Station. The green, open spaces of Tooting, Clapham and Wandsworth Common are all within walking distance. Add to this a strong community spirit and some great local schools, and it's clear to see why Balham has twice been named in The Sunday Times' list of Best Places to Live!
