Tenure: Virtual Freehold (999 years Lease) e-Moov are delighted to offer this beautiful two double bedroom flat occupying the upper Ground Floor of the only fully detached Early Victorian Villa in highly sought after Vassall Road. 10 minutes by ‘Boris Bike’ from The Southbank and just a 5 minute walk from Oval underground station, this property is not only a stunning architectural one off in an area that is still coming up, but also surrounded by pubs, cafes, bars and historical parks and green spaces and only £2.50 on your Oyster from the West End.
Walk up six wide steps to the main house’s large front door then enter a large communal hall (shared with the one-bedroom flat above) to access the flat’s internal front door.
The rooms in this Grade 2 listed apartment have very high ceilings and undeniable grandeur. Walk into the flat towards the sash window which floods the corridors with light and turn left, and you find the enormous main dining / entertaining / open plan kitchen space. This boasts a smart, modern kitchen with dishwasher as well as a modern functioning open fireplace, stunning French Windows and a Juliet Balcony facing south, with an attractive view over gardens and trees. At the other end a huge North facing arched window gives a view of Vassall Rd and the large front garden. Both windows have original working shutters floor to ceiling. Two glass chandeliers complete this light and grand space.
At the other end of the main corridor (which has 5 large built-in storage areas, most with power points and one with plumbing for utilities within) is a fully tiled bathroom that features a ceramic three-piece suite and an excellent mains pressure shower. Both bedrooms are a good size with ample storage and the North facing one is especially large – and again features original working wooden shutters that give total light block and excellent heat insulation at night in wintertime.
A further and somewhat unusual feature of this flat (which has independent central heating) is additional free winter heating that comes from two storage heaters as part of the very minimal service charge that is payable annually to Lambeth Council.
This quality of housing stock is rare these days and does not come up very often, and if you add the 999 year lease, the impressive look and proportions of the building, the central location and free parking to the considerable kerb appeal of this Grade 2 listed,170 year old property you will see why early viewing is essential.
