A sensational, double fronted five bedroom family home on the corner of Wandsworth Common.
Located on the corner of one of South West London's finest commons is this sensational double fronted, semi-detached Victorian home. Derby Lodge, having been in the same family for 30 years offers outstanding lateral living accompanied with off-street parking, a garage and unbroken views over Wandsworth Common.
Upon entering you are welcomed into a beautiful hallway which flows into the drawing room. The drawing room offers wonderfully high-ceilings, a functional fireplace, gorgeous hard wood floors and near floor to ceiling bay windows/French doors giving a unique triple aspect over the common and rear garden. Adjacent is the sitting room offering equally fantastic proportions.
Leading down the hallway into the heart of the home you are greeted with a country style kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen features high quality integrated appliances as well as an AGA, Neff oven and hob and beautiful views over the immaculately kept garden. A couple of steps lead into the double height dining room which provides comfortable seating for ten plus guests. Double doors lead into a wonderful conservatory/sun room perfect for admiring the garden all year round. Completing the ground floor is a study, which could also be used as a spare bedroom as it benefits from its own W.C.
The lower ground floor is home to a sizable cellar with plenty of storage as well as direct access via the rear garden.
The beautifully curated 87ft x 63ft (approx.) rear garden provides a private oasis to its residents. Mature trees, well planted borders and a patio for alfresco dining make for a wonderful space to enjoy all year round. Separate from the main house is a useful garage/ workshop with a separate studio which could be used as an annex perfect for au pair's or to be used as an extra bedroom or reception room (subject to usual planning consents).
The first floor hosts a luxuriously wide landing, from which all bedrooms can be accessed. The primary bedroom is located towards the rear of the first floor and enjoys views over the garden and common as well as a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom. There are a further three double bedrooms on this floor, one of which has an ensuite bathroom and the remaining two are served by a shower room.
