About this property
This exceptional Edwardian family home is within easy walking distance of both the High Street and Wimbledon Common.
The property offers excellent lateral living and entertaining space on a substantial plot with scope to extend, subject to planning consent.
The house is set back from the road behind a front garden and driveway. A large entrance hall creates a great sense of light and space. To the front is a generous reception room and a formal dining room. Both feature open fireplaces and bay windows allowing excellent natural light.
To the rear is an ample kitchen/dining room which features an original Poggenpohl kitchen with a larder/pantry alongside. There is also an additional sitting room with lovely garden views. This space could be knocked through to create an open plan kitchen/dining/living complex, subject to planning consent.
Off the hallway, there is also a utility room and cloakroom, and a large cellar.
The glorious private walled garden, bordered with mature trees and shrubs, includes a covered outdoor swimming pool and pool room. There is also a garage alongside with space for four cars and useful side access.
An easy rising staircase leads upstairs to a wide landing. On the first floor, a principal bedroom suite to the rear offers delightful garden views with an en suite bathroom and dressing room. There are also three further bedrooms, and a further bathroom. There is great potential to rearrange and remodel the existing layout.
On the top floor is an impressive roof terrace offering unbroken far-reaching views towards central London, an additional three bedrooms and another bathroom.
The only significant alterations to Number 8 since its construction in 1917 have been the addition of a front porch, which was added in 1929, and an elegant glazed seating area overlooking the garden on the first floor, installed in the early 1920s.
- Peek Crescent is a prime address located within 500m of Wimbledon Village. It was named after Sir Henry Peek, 1st Baronet (1825-1898), a philanthropist and member of parliament for Mid Surrey, who was instrumental in protecting Wimbledon Common in perpetuity. Sir Henry lived at Wimbledon House, a Georgian mansion which stood close to where Peek Crescent now lies. Wimbledon House was demolished in 1902 and in its place a handful of large homes in the Edwardian style were built, the most important of which are on Peek Crescent.
