A most enchanting, six-bedroom Georgian family home overlooking the resplendent greenery of Wimbledon Common. Could this be your next home?

Overview

Positioned on one of the most prestigious residential streets in Wimbledon, West Side Common, Bardon Lodge is a property that is steeped in historical significance.

Originally a small cottage for the groom of The Kier, a Grade II listed home on Wimbledon Common, the property underwent a series of extension and development works in the nineteenth century, and during the process, was owned by renowned journalist Walter Bagehot. The property retains much of its quintessential Georgian charm in the present day and yet has since undergone significant renovation works, resulting in the most exquisite of family homes by modern standards.

Overlooking the wonderful natural habitat of Wimbledon Common, a sense of privacy and seclusion is immediately apparent, with historic walls and hedging encapsulating the entire boundary. The property can be accessed through two separate entrances, with secure off-street parking available on the driveway or within the garage towards the rear of the house.

The property comprises three floors of living accommodation in addition to an original basement cellar. The entrance hall provides a stately introduction to the home. The generously proportioned space features sleek wooden flooring and a bespoke sweeping walnut staircase. An ornate fireplace ensures a warm welcome following the transition from the outdoors on crisp winter mornings for residents and guests alike.

As the hub of the home, the kitchen embodies a timeless look conceptualised by the award-winning kitchen designer Martin Moore. Elegant cabinetry is fused with the practicality of a central island, with a convenient array of built-in modern appliances positioned along the walls. The kitchen area works equally well for quality family time as it does for entertaining, with large sliding doors providing a seamless transition to the alfresco dining areas in the garden.

Elsewhere on the ground floor of the property is a drawing room, dining room, study, utility room and two downstairs WCs. The neutral colour scheme used throughout the downstairs living quarters and indeed the rest of the home seeks to enhance the abundance of natural light provided by the Gothic arch style windows. However, the most intriguing deviance from this theme awaits in the dining room, which features floor tiles that are believed to originate from the Central lobby in the Palace of Westminster.

Heading upstairs to the first floor, four of the property's six bedrooms can be found. With large bay windows providing multi-angled views over Wimbledon Common, the principal bedroom also features a separate dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. Three further bathrooms are located on the first floor, one of which is an en-suite serving the second bedroom, along with a small family bathroom. This is followed by an additional bathroom which connects to the office space.

The second floor of the property contains the fifth and sixth bedrooms along with an additional bathroom and a storage area. As with the office space located on the first floor, the top floor of the property provides an ideal environment in which to work from home in, or offers plenty of potential to be used as a self-contained guest facility, depending on the requirements of the new owners.

A mature landscaped garden creates the most serene conclusion to property. A luscious, deep vert lawn surrounds the home and is perfectly punctuated with an array of delicate floral blooms. The space is cleverly zoned with a wall that mimics the architectural style of the main building. Uninterrupted views of the Wimbledon skyline await during the summer months, including truly spectacular sunsets reminiscent of a watercolour landscape.

For any property hunters in search of what will no doubt become a treasured family home in an unbeatable location in the heart of Wimbledon, arranging a viewing of Bardon Lodge, West Side Common at the earliest convenience is highly recommended.

Location

With a look and feel that resembles rural village life yet remains just twenty minutes away from Central London by train, Wimbledon offers a tranquil hidden escape that simply cannot be replicated elsewhere in the city.

As an area of London that's routinely voted as one of the safest areas of the capital to reside in, Wimbledon has something for every property hunter. In particular, many families relocate to Wimbledon due to the quality of life that can be achieved here. Several excellent schools, 42 of which have been rated as 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, can all be found within the local catchment area.

Wimbledon Village is a particular draw to residents and visitors alike. Packed with a plethora of independent and high-end shops, alongside restaurants, cafes and pubs, the area is abundant in charm, with a distinct, upscale community feel.

Residents have endless open green spaces to explore, including Wimbledon Common, which comprises 1,100 acres of land, alongside nearby Cannizaro Park, Putney Heath and Richmond Park. All of which provide unlimited opportunities for outdoor pursuits from quaint family walks to partaking in popular local sports such as golf and horse riding.

Undoubtedly, the most famous sport associated with the area is tennis, with the world-famous Wimbledon tennis tournament happening in the area every year, and in addition, short-term lets during the Wimbledon season can be particularly lucrative to local homeowners.
