This detached chalet-style bungalow is one of the finest properties available on the road. With a superior internal specification, terrific kerb appeal and a staggering gross internal area of 2,565 sqft (283 sqm) of space plus potential to extend (STPP); the house has been priced to sell. Call immediately to arrange an early viewing to avoid disappointment.
The property is located in the established residential area of New Malden, which is a suburb of the Royal Borough of Kingston-upon-Thames. Blakes Lane is one of the more sought after roads in the area; a relatively quiet street leading from Malden Road, which is the arterial road connecting New Malden and Worcester Park High Streets.
There are a number of good schools in the vicinity. New Malden High Street offers a variety of shopping facilities and great dining establishments. Motspur Park BR Station is within easy walking distance and provides a regular service to Waterloo in as little as 24 minutes. The nearby A3 offers motorists very convenient access to London and Surrey.
With an imposing 29m frontage and sited on a level plot measuring a fifth of an acre, the property can be described as a detached ‘Arts & Crafts’ chalet-style bungalow with incredible kerb appeal and delightful features, such as the pillared entrance.
The gated carriage driveway is paved with space to park up to 8 cars off-street, and is lined with well-manicured shrubbery as well as beautiful brick and wrought-iron railings.
Walking through the front door into the spacious entrance vestibule, the character and quality of the property becomes immediately apparent. From the travertine flooring, the ceiling rose, Venetian-style wall paint and Georgian-style double glazing, it all together bestows a very welcoming, warm and chic ambiance. The hallway is wide, has parquet flooring and carries through the Venetian-style wall paint.
The voluminous main reception room offers extraordinary dimensions making it an excellent entertaining and dining space. The reception room has the special wall paint carried through, has a double aspect and feature fireplace. Sliding doors lead out to the conservatory, which is a truly delightful space and has crema marble flooring.
Originally designated as the master bedroom, the second reception room offers tremendous space and flexibility. It is being used as a family room by the current owners. It can easily be reverted back to a massive secondary master bedroom on the ground floor and has the added bonus of extra-wide doors. As a bedroom, it also has the advantage of fitted wardrobes and a very smart and high-specification en-suite bathroom which includes a Jacuzzi bath.
The luxury kitchen is of outstanding quality featuring spiral column detailing to the cabinetry and chunky double-Ogee edging for the granite worktops. There is also a small dining area ideal for breakfasts. The kitchen has lovely cornice detailing, Crema marble-style flooring, a host of integrated Miele appliances and speaker system. Leading from the kitchen is the utility room which is very organised with plenty of storage space and access to both front and back gardens.
Upstairs, the master bedroom suite is of a good size and comprises fitted wardrobes, a study space and luxury en-suite bathroom. There are another two double bedrooms serviced by a shower room.
The tranquil rear garden is very secluded and has mature trees and shrubbery. It is approximately 56ft in length and mainly laid to lawn with a patio. The current owners created distinct spaces for relaxation as well as a terrific water feature in the form of a fish pond and fountain – making the garden an oasis of calm and serenity. There is also a shed and playhouse.
There is good potential, subject to gaining the appropriate planning consent, to extend the property significantly. Subject to planning, it is conceivable to increase the internal area to circa 3,000 sqft.
