An important home of exceptional period integrity
Dating from 1778 Ivy House is a fabulous example of Georgian architecture and craftsmanship, denoted as a building of special architectural and historical importance, by virtue of its Grade II listing. Its stunning facade features beautifully regimented fenestration and a charming porticoed entrance canopy with a delightful fanlight. Internally this period integrity is also wonderfully intact, with a number of notable features. Such features include unusually high corniced ceilings, generous sash hung windows with operational box shutters, beautiful parquet flooring, a most elegant staircase and several exquisite fireplaces. All of which are complimented by the gracious room proportions and the excellent flow of natural light that is afforded by the large widows and stunning open aspects.
Whilst the house has been lovingly nurtured by our clients over several decades there is excellent scope to update it and therefore create a home to ones exact specification and design. The house really is a home and has a magical atmosphere that somehow manages to retain a truly homely feel, despite its grandeur and magnificent room proportions.
There is a delightful and well established walled garden that surrounds the house and the gated driveway provides extensive and secure parking for several cars. In addition to which there is a large double garage with a superb studio room above - that would be ideal as an 'office at home' or 'teenagers den.'
There have been many notable owners of Ivy House and the land that Ivy House was built on, forming a rich and colorful history that we would be delighted to provide to any prospective purchasers upon request.
This is an extremely rare opportunity to secure a house of this calibre, history and setting and we are very proud and excited to be representing our clients as the sole selling agents.
In my 33 years as an estate agent this is one of the most atmospheric and beautifully proportioned houses that I have ever seen and offers an unbelievable opportunity to own one of the finest Georgian houses in and around south west LondonDaniel Hutchins
