A highly desirable five bedroom Victorian house situated on one of the best streets between the commons and is close walking distance from both Honeywell and Belleville Schools. In excellent condition, this family home was fully extended by the current owners and, measuring approximately 2,121 sq. ft, retains a wealth of original period features and smart storage solutions. The house also has planning permission for a lower ground floor adding yet more living space.
As you enter, to your left there is a large double reception room with high ceilings, period features and natural wooden flooring throughout. This bright room features a large bay window with plantation shutters, bespoke cabinetry and book shelving. To the rear of the house is the stunning extended kitchen/breakfast room with a central island which is perfect for both family life and entertaining. The kitchen has an extensive range of fitted wall and base units, and multiple integrated appliances, including double Siemens ovens, dishwasher, ‘zip’ hot tap, five-ring gas hob, and an American-style Bosch fridge freezer.
Through bi-fold doors, you step into the pretty walled garden with wooden decking and due to its position, it enjoys both morning and evening sunshine. The house also benefits from a downstairs cloakroom, plenty of clever storage in the hallway and a cellar that has been converted into a utility room.
On the first floor, the spacious principal bedroom to the front is south facing,with a large bay window and has good built-in wardrobes. A real feature is the adjoining en-suite bathroom benefiting from a large walk-in shower, standalone bath and two separate sinks each with its own vanity unit. To the rear on this floor, you find a further generous double bedroom overlooking the garden, with built in wardrobes and an en-suite shower room.
On the top floor, to the front, you find a very good-sized double bedroom with Velux skylights currently used as a children’s room with bunkbeds. This room also gives access to a large amount of useful eaves storage. Adjacent is a light and modern family bathroom with a shower over the bath. Situated in the centre of this floor is a further bedroom which is currently used as a nursery but would be equally ideal for a large home office or further guest accommodation. To the rear is a further double bedroom featuring views over the surrounding gardens below.
Burland Road offers easy access to the amenities of Northcote Road and Webb’s Road with its vast array of local restaurants, shops, cafés and bars. At the end of the road is the very popular Spanish café Tierra Verde as well as other local and independent shops. The wide-open spaces of Clapham Common and Wandsworth Common are located nearby along with the excellent transport links of Clapham Junction Station, Clapham South underground station, and Wandsworth Common Station.
There is a good variety of well-established independent and state schools in the area, with both Honeywell School and Belleville School being a very short walk from the house (subject to catchment each year). Thomas’s Clapham, Eaton House and Broomwood Hall are also located nearby.
