London Property South brings you a stunning luxury Wimbledon home for sale with Robert Holmes & Company.
This impressive, early Victorian house has been extended and renovated to an exceptional standard. It stands on an elevated corner position with far reaching views to the south, in a peaceful location close to local shops and Wimbledon Common.
The house has three to four bedrooms and is an exceptional example of a property in a conservation area that has been totally re-built internally, and extended, while preserving the period authenticity.
The light interior has been designed to provide flexibility for modern multi-purpose living. There are generous central living areas, ideal for entertaining, and more intimate spaces for quieter times. The basement can be accessed separately, and could potentially provide self-contained accommodation if required.
This luxury Wimbledon home underwent extensive works including the replacement of the front roof and the creation of a stunning basement with high ceilings and full-height factory-style metal double-glazed windows. All windows throughout the house have been replaced with custom-made double-glazed timber sashes and all the floors have been replaced within a steel framework. A ventilation and warm air recovery system is energy efficient and provides fresh air, even with the windows closed, creating a quiet and calm internal environment.
Re-wiring also provides plenty of TV and data points, 5 amp lighting circuits and low energy ceiling and wall lights with Stealth Acoustics’ speakers, designed for use with a system such as Sonos, concealed within the drawing room ceiling. Complete re-plumbing includes a water softener, gravity drainage for internal waste water and underfloor heating throughout.
The sleek, stylish but practical kitchen provides maximum storage, a Quooker boiling water tap, integrated full height fridge and freezer and Miele appliances including a tall dishwasher, full-size oven, a compact oven/microwave and a warming drawer and gas hob. The bathrooms are equipped with Duravit basins, Catalano WCs and slot-drain showers tiled flush with the bath/shower rooms. The master en suite includes a Bette bath. Taps and shower fittings are from Crosswater and Hans Grohe/Axor Starck.
Interior finishes include Artisans tumbled mid-grey flagstones to the ground floor, Mandarin stone ‘cement’ porcelain tiles to the basement and bath/shower rooms, solid wood doors from The London Door Company, with pocket sliding doors between the kitchen and the sitting room and between two of the basement rooms, and reclaimed timber decorative wall-cladding in the reception hall and part of the basement.
All the internal walls are insulated, with a full-height acoustic lined party wall, and lined with ply to facilitate the hanging of artwork. There is a multitude of storage throughout.
The garden has been completely re-designed and re-planted. It has a new wall and hedge and reclaimed York stone paving.
