Property details

Keating Estates are proud to present to market a 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 offers four double bedrooms, two bathrooms and a low-maintenance 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, two characterful fireplaces and original wooden flooring. Bathing the rooms with natural light, a bay sash window is set to the front with large pane glass French doors leading to the garden at the rear. Adding to the bright ambience, the dining room wall has been opened up, revealing the stairwell and further enhancing the spacious feel.

Beyond, the kitchen is set to the rear of the property boasting an abundance of storage within wooden cabinetry and shelving for a country style charm creating a bright yet homely room in which to cook whilst enjoying views over the garden. Precedent has been set on the road should the new purchaser wish to seek the necessary permissions to extend into the side return, further expanding this already well-proportioned family kitchen and further increasing the footprint of this appealing home.

French glass doors from both the kitchen and dining room flow into the private wrap-around garden, offering the perfect transition to outdoor entertaining. This pretty outdoor spot is a low-maintenance South-facing suntrap with a handy shed, tiered paving and planters providing leafy flashes of greenery, 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 sash windows. The principal bedroom is particularly grand, spanning the full width of the property and featuring a large bay window, high ceilings and significant storage options. The three remaining bedrooms, still comfortable doubles, are set to the rear relishing leafy garden views.

Two modern family-sized bathrooms serve this fantastic house, one with a bathtub and overhead shower and the other offering a walk-in shower. Of further benefit, ideal for storing away those essential yet rarely needed belongings, the property boasts a generous cellar.

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.

Chain-free. 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.
