Merton house description

Alive and kicking

This home is bursting with the youthful energy of its eight-strong brood, and the surrounding area has got loads to offer, with suburban pleasures a-plenty. For a spot of beach volley ball take the kids to Wimbledon park just next door, or go for a ramble in the Common’s many acres of beautiful woodlands. Having run off some steam, return to your Melrose Avenue mansion, where a no-expense-spared renovation has given the home an upscale cottage atmosphere. Wander out to the sweet-smelling garden and enjoy a glass of wine on the decking, as you admire the flower beds, rippling with summer colours.

On the hop

Your hosts are a friendly menagerie of characters, from the couple who own the home, to their six sons, two dogs and two cats. The main man of the house works in the property business, and he’s leant his professional eye to the kitchen extension. Together they like to stay active and make the most of Wimbledon’s ample sports facilities.

The right move

The sitting room of this social abode sets the tone for the rest of the house, it’s rather spacious, sit your whole crew on the plush sofas and cuddle up for a family movie. The open plan kitchen, is where all the action happens, so crowd around the large dining table for a roast dinner. A cream coloured Aga, here, adds a touch of country style to this upscale space.

Heading upstairs, check out the first floor twin bedrooms (pssst, one has its own ensuite), or get first dibs on the double, which is full of boys’ toys and books, and an impressive antique bedframe. Upstairs further still, seek some solitude in the top single bedroom, or luxuriate in the beautiful master bedroom. Take a dip in the master ensuite or admire the greenery from balconette before sliding into the exquisite art nouveau bed for a well earned rest.

Ready, set, go

Wimbledon is awash with family fun, so drop the kids off for some watersports at Wimbledon Park Lake and head down to Wimbledon Village for a spot of boutique mooching and a gastro meal; or stay together and play doubles at the world famous tennis courts. For frolics further a-field, the nearest tube station is just a five minute walk from your front door and central London is 32 minutes away.
