The Property

An extraordinary, spacious London apartment with great potential.

Situated in SW16, this is a huge, purpose-built first and second floor apartment. Built initially in 1952, with additions in the 1970s and 1990s, it consists, on the first floor, of 2 double bedrooms, a large shower room, a kitchen with utility area, and a large dining/reception room. Upstairs there is a washroom with toilet, basin and plumbing for a washing machine, a very large open studio room with a sink area and stairs leading to a gantry, another large studio/reception room with south facing views to Epsom Downs and a spiral staircase going down to the first floor reception room. Total internal floor space, including the gantry on the second floor, is 248 sq. m/2669 sq. ft. Outside there is a pretty gated garden, with mature flowering shrubs. This outside area includes a parking space and a small brick-built storage shed. The reception rooms both have south-facing balconies.

The Place

The property is within 10 minutes’ walk of Streatham Hill (Clapham Junction/Victoria/London Bridge) and 20 minutes’ walk of Tulse Hill (St Pancras, Brighton). Although on a bus route, this corner property is set back from the main road, and the large garden belonging to the ground floor has mature trees providing cover during the summer months. Streatham Common, The Rookery and Norwood Grove, Tooting Common and Brockwell Park are all within easy reach and there are tennis courts nearby. Streatham provides a library, cinema, skating rink and sports facilities, and the regeneration plans for the High Road promise commercial opportunities and further facilities. The annual summer Streatham Arts Festival is now well established, as well as the Kite Festival in April and other events on the Common.

The Pitch

The property is in need of updating and some refurbishment which is reflected in the asking price. Nevertheless it offers an ideal live/work space for a London-based creative or performing artist. The larger room on the 2nd floor has been used for over 30 years as a music rehearsal room, comfortably housing a grand piano and various ensembles, even providing a venue for small informal concerts. It is light and could be made lighter with velux-style windows in the roof which are included in the planning permission that comes with the property. This grants permission to convert the apartment into 2 x 2-bedroomed flats.

The property is Freehold subject to a long lease of the ground floor flat (nominal rent and long lease apply).

Council Tax is Band E.
