Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market an endearingly characterful four bedroom Victorian house on the desirable Sandmere Road, a peaceful street in a popular residential pocket equidistant to Clapham and Brixton, appealing to purchasers looking to move to both of these two in-demand areas.

Packed full of original period features and well-proportioned throughout, this charming family home has been substantially updated by the present owners and offers four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a low-maintenance, landscaped private garden.

A sympathetic layout throughout maximises the generous square footage on offer whilst the lovingly preserved features offer all the charm and character of the era in which it was originally built. The dual-aspect reception diner is a warm, bright and appealing space, with high ceilings decorated with intricate cornicing, feature fireplaces, original wooden flooring and partition doors for those moments when a cosier ambience is desired, plus a large bay window framed with modern shutters to offer privacy whilst not interrupting the flow of natural light.

Beyond, the kitchen diner to the rear boasts contemporary styling, striking a fresh and appealing contrast to the living space. High quality appliances are integrated behind luxuriously sleek cabinetry and marble work surfaces, with a pop of vibrancy from tasteful olive green splashbacks. Multiple windows bathe the room in natural light, with a pretty bay providing the ideal spot for a more casual dining location.

The private rear garden is a low-maintenance suntrap with tiered planters providing leafy flashes of greenery and paved seating areas, perfect for savouring the warmer months of the year.

The first and second floors of the home provide four comfortable double bedrooms, in keeping with the character of this elegant home they all boast original fireplaces and wooden floors. The principal bedroom is particularly grand, spanning the full width of the property and featuring a large bay window, corniced ceilings and significant storage options. Another similarly large bedroom sits above whilst the two remaining bedrooms, still comfortable doubles, are set to the rear relishing garden views.

Two modern family-sized bathrooms serve this fantastic house and given the positioning of the largest bathroom next to the principal bedroom, these two rooms could be combined (subject to the necessary permissions) to create a lavish en-suite and walk-in wardrobe should the new purchaser desire, or equally as appealing as the luxurious house bathroom it currently is. Of further benefit, ideal for storing away those essential yet rarely needed belongings, the property boasts a cellar and a loft space.

The location of this charming Victorian home couldn’t be better, Sandmere Road is a very quiet street in the heart of the low traffic network creating a friendly road where the neighbours actually say hello to one another! An abundance of amenities are in every direction, just a seven-minute walk to both Clapham and Brixton, with the restaurants, coffee shops and supermarkets of Acre Lane moments away. In one direction, a stroll down the road brings you to the vibrant and diverse Clapham High Street offering a fantastic nightlife and culinary delights including Clapham Old Town, Venn Street market, Abbeville Village and of course the lush greenery of Clapham Common. A similar distance in the other direction, you will have everything that Brixton has to offer, from music venues and the extremely popular Brixton Village, to large brand-shops and the Upstairs Private members club. Convenient transport links are on hand with potential purchasers benefitting from both the Northern and the Victoria Lines. There are few properties in the area that have as many positive attributes, from the setting, character, storage and the proximity to all the action the area has to offer.

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.
