Orchard House is a rare opportunity to acquire a superbly located property in a secluded position in the heart of Wimbledon Village. The walled surround and entrance gates provide privacy and security, and the convenient additional entrance gate leading onto Draxmont allow for a shorter walking time to the British Rail station in Wimbledon.
The first impressions of Orchard House could not be better, passing through a wonderful landscaped front garden by an award winning designer, leading to a recent feature in House & Garden Magazine. There is an extensive number of shrubs, plants and trees, a number of which are evergreen.
After admiring the gardens, the ground floor of the house is equally as impressive. Orchard House was constructed in 1990 and designed to provide light into many of the rooms throughout the day. The 26' drawing room with antique limestone fireplace, overlooks the front and rear gardens, as does the kitchen and day room which is open plan in layout. The Smallbone kitchen is well appointed, with a gas fired Aga, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, fridge and freezer.
The first and second floor provide flexibility in layout. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom but also the option of a separate dressing room. There are two other double bedroom on this floor, along with a bathroom. The second floor is currently used as a large family/media room, but would be ideal as an additional bedroom as it also offers an en suite bathroom. The cloakroom on the ground floor and bathrooms are all fitted with white sanitary ware, with marble fittings and limestone tiles.
The landscaped rear garden is approached from French doors leading from the drawing room, kitchen/day room, or the right hand side of the property. There is also a spacious garage.
The property also has the benefit of approved planning permission to extend the ground floor and make alterations to the roof creating an additional bedroom amounting to approximately 600 sq ft. (Ref: 16/PO597).
