This house is full of character and the downstairs has been extensively modernised by the current owners with the addition of architecturally designed frameless sliding walls to offer the perfect blend of inside/outside living. This impressive home with varied roof lines, front turret balcony area and expansive frontage is distinctive and regal with its positioning at the top end of the common.
Downstairs off the delightful entrance hall, is an exceptional ultra modern kitchen equipped with Miele appliances throughout and stunning porcelain topped Island unit and cabinetry. The kitchen has a separate utility room and a small cloakroom toilet is also located on the ground floor of the main house. There is a second very large lounge/family room at the back of the house which similarly benefits from frameless glass walls with views over the garden. There is a further room to the front that can be used as an office or playroom. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms (one with a separate dressing room and another en suite), with two of the front bedrooms having access to a beautiful balcony from where there are stunning views over the common. The master bedroom overlooks the back garden and spans the entire breadth of the main house and offers a wonderful opportunity for the new owner to put their stamp on and create a stunning luxury master suite with dressing room. Currently the master offers a sitting area, extensive wardrobe space and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a further family bathroom with freestanding bath and walk-in shower.
The sizeable loft space spanning the length and breadth of the original main house offers amazing potential to further extend subject to the usual planning consents.
The charming detached annexe to the main house is classified by the council as a separate dwelling which offers two great benefits: huge saving on stamp duty (around £40,000 reduction depending on the agreed sale price) due to Multiple Dwellings Relief and the annexe which has its own kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom and own private access has excellent rental potential or inter-generational living.
The house is on the corner of Minehead Road and Streatham Common North so is brilliantly positioned just across the road from the enchanting walled gardens of the Rookery. Streatham Station is just over 5 minutes walk (London Victoria in 18 mins and London Bridge in 25 mins). There are many excellent schools nearby including, St Andrews (0.4 miles), Julians (0.6 miles) and St Immanuel and St Andrews (0.7 miles). There is also the highly acclaimed White House Prep within less than 10 minutes drive.
