Mr Clarke thinks :
This is a home that is immaculate. We could be very happy here.
Nestled on a quiet, tree-lined street within The Southfields Grid, this large Edwardian family home is full of light, charm and space - perfect for the discerning tenant.
The property has been thoughtfully extended and carefully refurbished for modern life. The downstairs space is divided into large open plan rooms, intimate private spaces and practical areas. The highlight is the vast kitchen with the dining room overlooking the garden and a snug for children to watch TV in whilst supper is being prepared. There is also a formal lounge at the front of the home, a utility room, cloakroom and lots of storage.
The sleeping rooms are split over two floors - the first floor boasts three bedrooms and a bathroom, the second floor is divided into a large en-suite bedroom and a smaller bedroom, which are perfect for visitors, Granny or a nanny.
This is a home that feels like a home - it is warm and light, full of character and beautifully styled. The location is ideal for a busy South West London family and we look forward to showing you around.
Mrs Clarke loves :
The epic kitchen with parquet floor, space for the children and effortless access to the garden.
As you stand at the front of the property you appreciate that the owners have spent time and money on creating a beautiful home. From the immaculate restoration of the tiled front path and new shutters in the windows, you can sense that this is a wonderful home. Once inside you are greeted by sense of history and warmth. There is space for shoes to be dumped, coats and school bags to be thrown down and for family and friends to be together. Everything has been done internally, which is great for a tenant - the kitchen is new, the design is straight from Living Etc and the little nods to the past are charming.
The configuration of the first and second floors allow bedrooms for a large family or a family who has lots of visitors. The garden is perfect for entertaining and the location is ... you guessed it.. perfect!

Where the streets are lined with Gold Top
Southfields is also the kind of place where the milk’s still delivered in glass pint bottles. Local milkman Ian Beardwell, who has never missed a round in 28 years, recently earned the accolade of Milkman of the Year from Milk & More. If this doesn’t make you want to live there then nothing will.
With its desirable tree lined streets and spacious Edwardian homes Southfields attracts a mix of glamorous young families and smart downsizers wanting to live within the catchment area of an outstanding primary school, be close to town and have a lovely community vibe. Situated in between Wimbledon Park and the River Wandle, there's plenty of open space here for stylish dog owners and runners to get out in the fresh air. On the high street it’s good to see butchers, bakers (there’s probably even a candles stick makers) and other small businesses scattered among the usual high street chains.
Mrs C and her yummy mummy pals can be found in De Rosier Chocolate Shop after they have finished the weekly yoga session. Mr Clarke is partial to pint at The Pig and whistle, especially as his test Labrador can join him at the bar. Whether it is coffee at Dropshot, pizza at Franco Manco or prosecco at The Earl of Spencer there is something for every taste.
Southfields and Wimbledon Park Tube stations are both on the Wimbledon branch of the District line. Nearby Earlsfield has 15-minute trains to Waterloo. All stations are in Zone 3 and an annual travel card costs £1,648. There are no commuter buses but the No 87 Night Bus runs from Aldwych to Kingston via Merton Road.
