As well as an affluent residential suburb, Wimbledon is something of a mecca for sports fans the world over, hosting the planet’s most famous tennis tournament. It’s also the home to Wimbledon Village stables – the oldest riding stables in England. And for more sedate pursuits, there are upscale eateries and boutiques a-plenty on the buzzing high street. After a day’s thrill seeking, set weary feet towards Queen's Road, an immaculate four bedroom, three bathroom Victorian home, regally poised amidst grand period conversions, and let yourself unwind.
Your host is the mother of two young children, and together they’ve made Queen’s Road into a fun-filled family home. Her keen aesthetic sensibilities are played out all over the space in the decadent interior, and the kids’ effervescent playfulness is hinted at in the huge trampoline that takes pride of place in the large back garden.
Step inside the slate coloured sitting room, where baroque sofas sit alongside crystal chandeliers and a dark wood piano. Relax on the lilac cushions and admire the huge gilt mirror above the original fireplace, and the modern art that adorns the walls. Afterwards, head through to the massive, open-plan kitchen and dining room, with a beautiful where a no-expense-spared approach to fixtures and fittings is clearly evident. Prepare a tasty treat on the chrome stove-island, and enjoy it on the extending ten-seater dining table overlooking the garden. Or, go full-on al fresco and dine on the patio furniture. If you’re in the mood for a family flick, curl up in the snug TV room, where a deep L-shaped sofa offers flawless views of the enormous wall-mounted flat-screen TV.
Upstairs in the master bedroom, recline on the super king-size bed beneath characterful ceiling beams, or luxuriate on the sofa before the original sash window, and enjoy a book plucked from the extensive bookcase. Next door, a spa-style bathroom with a bath and muted stone tiles, will please every penchant for pampering. Ascend further to the second floor, past the family bathroom, and into the single bedroom, where a football table and overflowing toy chest hint at the little boy who stakes his claim here. On the crowning third floor, you’ll find a final large elegant bathroom, and two double bedrooms, each in sophisticated neutral colours, antique furniture, and black and white family photographs.
Explore the achingly affluent (and conveniently close-by) milieus of Wimbledon Village, where handsome period buildings house independent clothing boutiques and European cafés. Or visit The Wombles’ stomping ground on Wimbledon Common, where acres of woodland provide a verdant slice within the city. Further a-field, central London can be reached within 30 minutes via Wimbledon Rail Station, which is just around the corner.
