An exceptional opportunity to acquire a Grade II listed eight bedroom house in Wimbledon Village by architect Sir Aston Webb who designed the principal facade of Buckingham Palace.
A simply exceptional opportunity to acquire an impressive late Victorian Grade II listed detached house dated 1889 located in the most desirable position in The Grange. Sir Aston Webb was an English architect who designed the principal facade of Buckingham Palace and the main building of the Victoria and Albert Museum, was also instrumental in the design of this property.
The wonderful history and character of the house is evident on entering with a sense of grandeur and elegance indicating the age of the house, with a striking reception hall running through the centre of the ground floor. The drawing room, dining room and family room at the front of the house are spectacular rooms that can be used as one open plan room or divided by an original portcullis that has since been electrified, and a pair of pocket doors. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the end of the reception hall and provides access to the rear garden.
Richard Holden Architects were commissioned approximately 20 years ago to design an extension at the rear of the house to add an indoor swimming pool complex with gymnasium and a family room/annexe located above the garage.
Approached via a characterful main staircase from the hall, the first floor has a number of bedrooms including a wonderful master suite with a dressing room and a large bathroom. There is also a secondary staircase leading from the hall that accesses the first floor, along with an additional bedroom that can be used as a study.
There are three additional bedrooms on the second floor, including a charming bedroom that is centrally located to the front of the house and has a small feature balcony that enjoys some impressive views.
Outside, the gardens wrap around the house on three sides and are beautifully landscaped with an extensive lawn, pretty floral borders and a stone terrace for outside dining. Gated parking is provided on the driveway to the front and in the garage.
An extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of Wimbledon Village's most prominent houses.James Morrison
