Albert Square, Stockwell, SW8
Winkworth present a beautifully maintained and lovingly restored, four-bedroom Georgian house, right in the centre of the south side of one of Kennington's most prestigious garden squares. EPC Exempt (Grade II Listed).
The property stands on the south side of Kennington's premier address. Arranged with four bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen, utility room and a study, this home offers accommodation which works perfectly for families. The house has undergone full refurbishment over the past decade.
You enter the property at raised ground level into the reception space. The wall between the hall and the reception room has been removed, which creates a fabulous entrance. The reception room is a generous space with original floorboards and sash windows to the front, overlooking the square and to the rear, overlooking the south-facing garden.
The top floor of the house is home to three bedrooms. There are two bedrooms at the front and one to the rear, running parallel to the stairwell.
The first floor is where the master bedroom is situated. It spans the width of the house and like the reception below, benefits from original wooden flooring. There is an en-suite shower room as well as an abundance of built-in storage. The family bathroom has been carefully thought out with a bath with overhead shower, WC, a basin and plenty of storage space.
The study, which sits on the half level, is part of the more recent rear addition. It is dual aspect and enjoys pretty views of the gardens and the beautiful terraces of Methley Street. There are double-glazed sash windows throughout the rear part of the house.
The kitchen to the rear is stunning. A full width extension with bi-fold doors allows for views of and access to the garden. The kitchen itself has storage within stylish units, an integrated dishwasher, Neff oven and grill. There is also more than enough space for a dining table seating at least eight.
Moving to the front of the house, there is a utility room fitted with a washer, dryer, sink and additional storage, with a WC just off this room.
The front of the lower ground level is a family snug or TV room; with space for a wall mounted TV and bespoke joinery either side of the chimney breast, it represents a fantastic family room and can double as a guest bedroom. There is also access to the square at this level.
The garden is generous, with raspberry plants and, plum, cherry and apple trees. There is plenty of room for little ones to play, as well as a shed to the rear with power and light, which doubles as a second office, if required.
The house further benefits from many features, which are not immediately obvious; for example, Cat-5 wiring runs throughout, there is underfloor and solid wall insulation, solar water and water underfloor heating.
Cleaver Square is set in the heart of Kennington between Kennington Park Road and Kennington Lane. The attractive garden square is known for petanque and as a meeting ground for the locals; you might find them in The Prince of Wales Pub.
