About our home

This Edwardian terraced family house in Clapham has loads of space (approx 240 sq m over three levels and an attic conversion) for a large family or group of friends. We recently extended the house into a full size basement with three bedrooms, a bathroom and large reception room/playroom, so that now there are six bedrooms in total, along with four bathrooms (two of which ensuite) and a toilet on the ground floor. There is also a utility room in the basement with washer and dryer. The bedrooms in the basement open directly (two with French windows) onto wooden-decked patio areas so they have plenty of light, even when its cloudy.

The kitchen, on the ground floor, is fully equipped, with gas hob, ovens, microwave, dishwasher and Nespresso machine, and opens onto the garden. The garden has a gas barbecue and sun-loungers, and is fully wooden-decked. There is a double reception room a the front of the house, the front part of which has sofas and a huge television, and a gas fireplace for cold winter nights; there is also a bar for entertaining. We have a massive collection of DVDs, French satellite television (Canal+), Apple TV and Nintendo Wii.

There are two further bedrooms on the first floor, one of which has an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower. The second floor is an attic extension with a double guest bedroom that also has an ensuite bathroom. It also has balcony from which you can see Clapham Common.

There is WiFi that works throughout the house. There is a regular cleaner that has worked for us for years and knows the house well.

Location-wise, we are well situated, roughly equidistant between Clapham Junction and two underground stations (Clapham Common and Clapham South). The house is directly next to Clapham Common, which is one of London’s most popular and spacious green spaces, and a great place to go running or cycling. There are ‘outdoor gyms’ on the Common, and frequent events such as concerts and fairs. Northcote Road and Battersea Rise are both a short walk away, and offer fashionable ‘London village’ shopping, bars and restaurants. On the other side of the common are a number of bars and clubs and a buzzing nightlife scene.

Of course there are loads of things to do in London generally, and its easy to access the rest of the city (and indeed the main nearby towns) from where we are. Clapham Junction is one of the busiest rail stations in the country, with trains going directly to Victoria and Waterloo. The two nearby underground stations are on the Northern Line, which takes passengers directly into central London

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Buzzy restaurants
The Northcote Road area is famous for the number and diversity of restaurants and bars, with practically every different national cuisine represented. The award winning 'Chez Bruce' is also nearby, along with a couple of famous Japanese restaurants (Tokiya, Tsunami) and Italian such as Numero Uno.
Cool bars
If you like well-made cocktails, then you won't be disappointed. On Battersea Rise alone there are three bars that serve excellent Dry Martinis (Southside, Rise46, The Walrus Room) but there are plenty more excellent bars on Northcote Road and indeed all around Clapham Common
Cozy cafés
There are at least three branches of Starbucks within walking distance of our house, but also several independents with a bit more character such as Cafe Tamra on Northcote Road that is very popular and recommended for 'brunch'.
Retail therapy
Both big-name 'high street' brands and smaller independent shops are well represented, with Northcote Road specialising in the latter. This is where you can find established butchers, cheese shops, a specialist in running shoes and many others. The connecting road (St Johns Road) is where the big names can be found - Waitrose, Marks and Spencers and even our very own department store (Debenhams).
Walks in the park
Clapham Common is popular among dog-walkers, runners and cyclists, with plenty of room for all of them. There's lots of activity and things to see, including woodland, ponds and a lovely gastropub (The Windmill)
Spot of exercise
See above! There are also several gyms in the area including a Virgin Active and Fitness First
Day tripping
Well connected to the rest of London and surrounding towns.
