"Arranged around a large central courtyard, with voluminous, light-filled rooms that flow into one another."
This outstanding, eco-efficient five-bedroom house with courtyard garden, and gated off-street parking, can be found in the Pelham Road Conservation Area, on a quiet residential street close to South Wimbledon underground station. It was built in 2008 to a design by architects Mountford Pigott and is arranged around a large central courtyard, with voluminous, light-filled rooms that flow into one another across a series of split levels. Internal accommodation extends to approximately 2,340sq Ft.
The property is accessed via an electric gate to a courtyard parking area with space for two cars. A mature Olive tree provides dappled shade to steps down to the lower-ground floor entrance hall, which is flooded with light from double-height glazing.
To the right is a bedroom with en-suite shower and built-in wardrobes. A sliding door reveals an expansive open-plan kitchen with solid-timber cabinets and Neff appliances, and living area beneath a double-height void and glazed doors to the south-facing central courtyard. There is a half-level descent to a large second reception, currently used as a dining room, with shower room and storage room beyond.
On a split level between the lower-ground and first floor is a shower room, separate WC, and master bedroom with bamboo flooring, built-in walnut wardrobes, and a free-standing bath.
Beneath clerestory windows and a large roof light, an oak staircase ascends to a gallery landing and then on to the first floor, where there are two further bedrooms, one with terrace, and a family bathroom.
The house is located at the eastern end of Pelham Road, close to Wimbledon’s extensive range of shops, cafes and restaurants, and the popular South Park Gardens area. The green open spaces of Wandle Meadow Nature Park are within fifteen minutes’ walk. The area is renowned for its outstanding schools, most notably, the highly rated King’s College School and Wimbledon High School.
Transport links for the area are excellent. South Wimbledon station is a four-minute walk and runs Northern Line Underground services direct to Waterloo, London Bridge, Bank, Charing Cross and Kings Cross St Pancras. Wimbledon mainline station is approximately 12 minutes’ walk and runs Thameslink services to London St Pancras International, District Line Underground services via Earls Court and London Victoria, and national rail services to Clapham Junction in approximately seven minutes and London Waterloo in around 15 minutes.
