A simply stunning and very charming "country house in London", in a highly coveted west Putney location.
This very handsome, double fronted detached property (5,084 sq ft) has been sympathetically extended and beautifully refurbished and maintained over the years; now affording a rarified country house feel.
It has fabulous, well balanced, family accommodation over three floors, plus cellar and occupies a particularly private plot in this much coveted west Putney location.
The hall is both impressive and welcoming, with its open fire and the reception space leading off it is some of the best we have seen in Putney:
To the right on entry, is a large drawing room with its feature fireplace and a bay window making it particularly light and affording an excellent outlook to the front.
There is also access to the first of the two Marston & Langinger conservatories, this one being to the southern flank of the house and a popular spot for morning coffee and reading the papers; there are excellent views and level access to the garden.
A large sitting room to the rear of the house has a wonderful open fire and pretty French doors with lovely views over and level access to the the beautifully landscaped and maintained rear garden.
The fabulous kitchen / breakfast / family room, with its pretty Aga and bespoke Chalon kitchen, provide ample scope for even the most ambitious and capable of chefs and is very much the hub of this wonderful family home. It, too, has lovely views over and level access to the garden by virtue of large French doors.
It also features the second Marston & Langinger conservatory, this time to the northern flank and giving the property unusual width and lateral space, whilst also making it particularly light on even the gloomiest of days.
A well designed and equipped Martin Moore utility room and a pretty cloakroom round off the ground floor accommodation beautifully.
The lower ground floor is given over to a dry four room cellar, ideal for wine enthusiasts and providing further storage for golf clubs and other family essentials. There is also a workshop for carpentry and the like.
At first floor level, a sumptuous principal bedroom suite is very well served by a high end en suite bathroom and its dressing room.
There are two further double bedrooms, well served by a beautifully appointed family bathroom and there is also an additional, very pretty multipurpose room to the rear. Currently used as a music and television room, this could be put to a plethora of uses as it is unusually light and bright by virtue of its bank of windows, providing a simply stunning outlook onto the well-stocked and beautifully landscaped garden. There is also a beautiful stained glass window.
The top floor is expansive and feels particularly homely, with one large double bedroom plus en suite bathroom and a further double bedroom; there is also plenty of attic space beyond.
The plot is unusually wide and accommodates a pretty garage with its high pitched tiled roof, nestling comfortably beside the house. This would undoubtedly convert well into a spacious home office or further accommodation, if required and subject to the usual consents.
The rear garden is private, beautifully screened and tended and provides the perfect backdrop to this very special house; there is also lighting for those summer balmy nights and entertaining on a grand scale.
To the front of the property there is ample off-street parking, by virtue of the carriage driveway and the garage would no doubt be ideal for car enthusiasts.
In short, a beautifully presented family house and garden in an excellent plot in the heart of west Putney.
