St. Simon's Avenue, Putney, London, SW15
SOLD SUBJECT TO CONTRACT A truly magnificent, detached double fronted family house combining period elegance and modern convenience.
This lovely late 19th century house features impressive interconnecting rooms which are ideal for both family living and large scale entertaining.
There is a luxuriant sense of space throughout the property. The ground floor has been extended to 3,572 sq. ft. and includes four principle reception rooms.
On arriving, there is a large entrance hall, bracketed by a grand central staircase. To the left, the drawing room leads through folding doors to an elegant dining room which comfortably seats 12-14. Both rooms have matching original mouldings and large working fireplaces with striking marble surrounds. The spacious family room is delightfully bright and adaptable to a variety of uses.
A stunning Marston & Langinger conservatory with Moroccan floor tiles runs along the rear of the house, where three sets of French doors lead onto the landscaped garden.
The octagonal kitchen with cathedral ceiling is of a very high quality with Gaggenau and Miele appliances. Six tall windows facing onto the garden are designed to take maximum advantage of the abundant light and space. An adjacent room is a convenient homework/hobby room and includes the original early 19th century wall to wall glass fronted china and crystal cabinet.
Completing the ground floor is a study and cloakroom. The ground floor also leads onto a double garage with stairs leading to a self-contained studio/gym (with access to plumbing if staff accommodation is desired).
On the upper floors is the master bedroom which overlooks the garden with en-suite shower room and dressing area. There are five further double bedrooms, all of very good size, with access to two family bathrooms plus a separate WC. There is also a second study and significant storage built in.
The west facing garden is a real oasis for London. Designer landscaped, the garden boasts mature trees and shrubs including exotic palms which lend an almost tropical air. There is a tiered flagstone terrace with a quite extraordinary marble table for al fresco entertaining. A secluded summerhouse and fountain with fish pond complete this sanctuary.
The house is located on the favoured west side of Gwendolen Avenue, a tree lined street which many call Putney's premier address. The property is only a short walk to Putney mainline and East Putney underground stations giving easy and flexible access to Central London and it is also near many highly desirable schools.
