Built in 1860, Thornton Place is a magnificently restored Grade II listed building, set in a commanding position overlooking Clapham Common.
This 2 bedroom ground floor apartment is of substantial proportions extending to over 1500 sq ft, twice the size of an average new-build apartment. It features many period characteristics including high ceilings (in excess of 3.5 metres), period cornicing, wooden flooring and lateral living space throughout. The apartment is unique within the building and benefits from its own grand front door.
Upon entering, the hallway leads through to the fantastic kitchen/reception room with a large space for dining and entertaining and a fireplace. A large bay window provides uninterrupted views over the 220 acre tree-lined common opposite and fills the room with an abundance of natural light. The kitchen is well equipped with a range of contemporary gas and electrical appliances as well as fitted units and cupboards. The luxury master bedroom is spacious and has fitted cupboard space and a modern en suite shower room. The second bedroom also has an en suite shower room and there is a further luxury family bathroom also within the apartment. The bathrooms are fitted with heated towel rails and mirrored cupboards.
This property has been recently refurbished to provide luxury living and benefits from access to a private walled communal garden at the rear of the property which has been landscaped and comprises garden furniture for entertaining. There is also an on-site dedicated concierge service. This property comes with one allocated parking space.
Perfectly located to access the City and the attractions of central London, yet walking distance to all the amenities of the charming Clapham Old Town and to the diverse and excellent local schools.
Clapham Old Town has an abundance of coffee shops, European delicatessens and artisan food sellers all within walking distance of Thornton Place. It is a very social corner of London, with the sporting community surrounding the common and the copious numbers of chic, traditional or alfresco dining experiences. The boutique shops sit side by side with the local arts scene that Clapham is so well known for.
