Hillier Road is one of the most desirable residential locations in South West London; being surrounded by a number top private and public schools in London, as well as a number of Commons. The area is known to offering a country side feel within central of London; the ever popular Kings Road, Sloane Square, and Chelsea.
Hillier Rd is walking distance (200m) from the very popular Northcote Road, a shopping street in Battersea which stretches for over half a mile. It is close to Clapham Junction station, and is the epicentre of the so-called ‘Nappy Valley’. Its interesting name has been given because of the young, affluent and productive demographic, and due to the road covering over a culverted river (the River Falcon), giving it a low-lying position between the two commons of Wandsworth and Clapham.
The building is slightly wider than the usual Victorian house, and was in dire need of modernisation; with four bedrooms, and the cellar spreading over 1800sqf (160sqm). We have demolished every indoor wall, replaced almost every piece of its original structure, built a new kitchen extension and a massive basement under entire house. There is new wiring, a glass roof extension, and two indoor staircases leading to the basement. The layout of the stairs ensures there is no “underground” feeling whilst in the basement, and allows a natural flow from the upper floor to the basement, thus achieving the maximum usage of the rooms below.
