This wider than average six-bedroom Edwardian house is situated right on this quiet residential road and close walking distance from Clapham Common and Northcote Road. With potential to extend on the ground floor, this family home has a great sense of natural light and space throughout, while retaining a wealth of original period features.
As you enter via the pathway through the pretty front garden, you immediately feel the extra width of this beautiful home. To your right is a well-proportioned reception room, with a large bay window overlooking the front, boasting original features, fireplace, bespoke cabinetry and high ceilings. Next you step into the second good sized reception room with original French doors which lead onto a secluded patio area within the garden. The stunning kitchen/breakfast room is perfect for family life and entertaining and there is space for a dining table. This modern kitchen has an extensive range of elegant fitted wall and base units and there is a very useful pantry/storage cupboard at the rear of the kitchen. There are multiple Bosch integrated appliances, including an oven, five ring gas hob, dishwasher and a large fridge freezer.
The real wow-factor of this property is realised as you walk out in the huge south-east facing garden, which is approximately 76ft in length and 26ft in width, and due to is position, attracts light for most of the day. The immediate area outside the kitchen is laid with stone with surrounding flower beds with mature shrubs and plants. To the centre of the garden is an apple tree providing a natural break as you move into the main section of this mature garden, which is majority laid with lawn, with bordering beds featuring shrubbery, plants and trees. Being a semi-detached property, the garden can also be accessed from the side of the house which makes it easy for storing gardening equipment and bicycles for example.
The first floor comprises four bedrooms and a bathroom which are all accessed from the wide central hallway. The extra-wide principal bedroom to the front is bright due to its large bay window and high ceilings and boasts generous built-in wardrobes and an Edwardian fireplace. Adjacent is a single bedroom which makes for a good au pair’s room or home office with a lovely aspect over the font garden. To the centre of the house, you have another large double bedroom, currently used as a children’s bedroom and with views to the rear over the garden. There is a good-sized family bathroom currently configured with a large walk-in shower and to the rear of this floor, you find a further double bedroom, again with pretty views over the garden below.
On the top floor there are two further large double bedrooms, both with southerly aspects and views towards St Luke’s church and the multiple gardens of Thurleigh road behind. To complete this floor there is further family bathroom with a freestanding roll top bath, vanity unit and separate shower. Accessed from this floor is an abundance of necessary storage space in the large eaves, which stretch the width of the house.
Roseneath Road offers easy access to the amenities of Northcote Road, Webb’s Road and Clapham South with its vast array of restaurants, shops, cafés and bars. The wide-open spaces of Clapham Common are just moments away with all its amenities, including tennis courts, cafes, ponds and playing fields.
There is an excellent variety of well-established independent and state schools in the area, with the closest being Thomas’s Clapham and Broomwood Hall and including Honeywell School and Holy Ghost Catholic Primary school.
The property benefits from the excellent transport links of Clapham South underground station, Clapham Junction and Wandsworth Common mainline railway stations, and an extensive network of bus routes.
