Located on the favoured south side of the gorgeous Nightingale Square this grand Victorian house has been completely refurbished and extended in painstaking detail. The result is a contemporary family home of breath-taking quality, offering five bedrooms (including a superb master suite), a spectacular extended kitchen and a sunny and secluded south-facing garden.
The prestigious address in this beautiful garden square is close to transport links at Wandsworth Common, Balham and Clapham South, as well as the many excellent local schools.
The three-storey house is one of a handful built wider than their counterparts on the north side. And when you see the superb flexible living space on offer here, this width is very apparent.
The front reception room can be used as a self- contained entertaining space, or the huge glazed doors can be opened into the spectacular kitchen/family room behind to create an open-plan ground floor. Solid oak flooring, which has been fitted on every level. The kitchen/family room has been designed in zones – with a cooking area, two eating areas and an informal ‘library’ with huge swathes of fitted bookshelves. The kitchen is by Italian company Tisettanta, with Carrara Marble Worktops and Miele appliances.
There are three sets of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors providing access to the garden. Here, the composite decking has been selected to closely match the interior flooring – creating an easy flow between outside and in. The garden has been beautifully designed and, because of the property’s position in the square, offers uninterrupted southerly views. With no houses directly behind, it offers the maximum seclusion. Completing the ground floor, there is a downstairs WC and utility room.
Upstairs the master suite, with its sumptuous bathroom and Italian wardrobes, is arranged over the rear of the house. To the front, a guest bedroom offers views of the garden square, with an adjacent shower room. Across the top floor, three generous sized bedrooms share the family bathroom.
The house has been entirely remodelled from top to bottom, having been stripped back to the original brickwork and works have included complete re-wiring, re-plumbing, new internal walls and ceilings, new windows and new roof.
The houses in Nightingale Square surround a private garden, surrounded with high iron railings, for the exclusive use of residents of the square, who can also use it for private functions.
