Architect: Delvendahl Martin Architects
This sophisticated four-bedroom Victorian house features a large contemporary glass extension by RIBA-shortlisted practice Delvendahl Martin Architects. Backing on to a serene Japanese garden, Killyon Road offers peace and seclusion across 1,990 sq ft, close to Clapham Old Town.
Delvendahl Martin’s design skilfully draws natural light from the rear, through full-height glazed windows, across the entirety of the ground floor, creating a wonderful sense of warmth and space in the reception rooms and open-plan kitchen/dining room.
The recent work has been executed with great sensitivity to the existing structure, utilising the finest contemporary materials. Pine floorboards match the original Victorian staircase and conceal an underfloor heating system which stretches through the reception rooms into the kitchen, where a window seat in pine and polished concrete offers beautiful views of the garden through a full height glazed picture window.
Former side access has been covered and integrated into the extension. A linear skylight illustrates this addition and offers a second point of access to the kitchen/dining room. Concealed between the two entrance ways is a small washroom.
A master bedroom makes up the majority of the first floor, including a large en-suite bathroom and Jacuzzi bath. A smaller bedroom overlooking the garden has access to its own family sized shower room. There are an additional two bedrooms occupying the second floor.
Beyond the large glazed windows on the ground floor, a mature Japanese garden flows seamlessly around a decked walkway, to a pond and seating area, providing a wonderfully relaxing environment, among wasabi plants, cherry blossoms, apple, maple and fig trees.
Killyon Road is excellently positioned for the restaurants, bars and amenities of Clapham Old Town; nearby The Sun pub, Clapham Picture House and the green spaces of Clapham Common and Heathbrook Park are firm local favourites.
Clapham is excellently connected for transport city and nationwide. Clapham North and Clapham Common underground stations connect via the Northern line and Wandsworth Road offers connections to the London Overground.
