This bright and appealing family home has a distinctive contemporary feel and is set within a delightful cul-de-sac just off Copse Hill. The ground floor has been extended to create clever glass vistas that give a vibrant sense of space and light.
The home is modern with high ceilings and an abundance of glass and light but still retains a warm and convivial atmosphere. A bright and airy entrance hall leads onto a sleek, contemporary open plan kitchen with a full range of fitted units as well as top quality integrated appliances. There is a large central island with casual breakfast bar seating, as well as a spacious dining area with floor to ceiling bi-fold door leading out to the terrace affording lovely views of the garden.
A cleverly designed, full height corner of glass visually connects the kitchen with the reception room. There are two splendid reception areas with attractive hardwood flooring; the larger of the two makes the most of the natural light with three large architectural skylights and more glass bi-fold doors onto the terrace and garden.
The front reception room has a charming bow window and pretty working fireplace. A good sized cloakroom and a utility room with a door to the side access complete the ground floor.
A pristine white staircase leads upstairs to a wide landing and hall with four bedrooms and a large immaculate family bathroom. The second floor is completely given over to the master bedroom and en suite shower room and is flooded with light from large windows on all sides – giving superb views.
There is a garage with access from the house as well as off-street parking for two cars and an elegant, well landscaped front garden. The rear garden is green and quiet with mature trees and shrubs and backs onto the wide open spaces of Lindisfarne playing fields.
Melville Avenue is in an ideal location – only a short walk to King’s College School, The Rowans, and Squirrels and is also convenient for Rokeby, Marymount and Holy Cross as well as other excellent state schools. The designer boutiques and shops, restaurants and cafés of Wimbledon Village are a little over a mile away and the 1,100 acres of Wimbledon Common are only a five minute walk away.
