"Dynamic configurations have been achieved through thoughtful reworking of the building's generous dimensions, resulting in a house that feels intimate and relaxed."
This classic mid-century townhouse with three bedrooms forms part of a terrace on Sheepcote Lane, positioned on the edge of the Latchmere Estate Conservation area, minutes from Battersea Park.
Originally designed in the 1960s, this particular three-bedroom house has been re-designed and re-configured by its current owners with a view to maximising a sense of space and light throughout. The ground floor has been subject to an extension at the rear, where a skylight and a large set of glazed bi-fold doors seek to dissolve the division between a beautifully minimalist kitchen/dining room and a dramatic Barbican-inspired sunken garden.
Across each of the three-storeys there is a fluency to the interior design that betrays a meticulous attention to detail. Dynamic configurations have been achieved through thoughtful reworking of the building’s generous dimensions, resulting in a house that feels intimate and relaxed.
Stairs to the upper floors retain their original hardwood banisters and lead to a spacious living room, which benefits from wonderful levels of natural light, care of a row of windows along the whole of the east-facing aspect. On the same level is a bedroom and adjacent shower room.
On the second floor are two further bedrooms. The master bedroom benefits, like the living room below, from a row of east-facing windows. The rear-facing bedroom overlooks the garden. There is also a large family bathroom on this floor.
There is a spacious garage and driveway at the front of the house with off-street parking space for one car, as well as a a permit for the car park opposite.
Sheepcote Lane is a peaceful, popular location within easy reach of the shops and restaurants of Battersea Park Road. Battersea Park, with its childrens’ zoo, boating lake, tennis courts and football pitches spread across 200 acres of green space is a short walk away.
The house is within a mile of Clapham Junction station where trains run directly to London Waterloo, London Victoria and citywide via London Overground and the Northern Line.
