All I want for Christmas….

If our property partners could have one house on their books for Christmas, which one would it be, asks Georgina Blaskey


All I want for Christmas

Jonathan Dyson at Hamptons International

“A truly rare find in the area is this stunning house on Ramsden Road. One of the main reasons that wealthier families move to the country is because there is a distinct lack of high-quality, well-balanced Victorian houses in the area. This one, on the other hand, has it all – double fronted, good sized garden, large kitchen, off-street parking and it’s been really nicely done up by the current owner. For me and my family this would be my dream move.”


All I want for Christmas

Charles Streatfeild at Marsh & Parsons

“I love this very cool, unusual lateral living space moments from Wandsworth Common on St James’s Drive. It’s a delightful family home with fantastic living space and the further potential to extend into the loft. The house has been comprehensively refurbished and extended to create a wonderful family home with four bedrooms – one of them with French doors opening to a Juliette balcony overlooking the garden.”



Jack Osmond at Douglas & Gordon

“This house has undergone a complete ‘no expense spared’ renovation by its current owners and works exceptionally well for entertaining friends and family. Offering a tremendous sense of both period and contemporary grandeur throughout, it’s definitely on my Christmas wish-list.”



Joel Baseley, at Rampton Baseley

“The Edwardians certainly knew how to live in style and build with grandeur. This magnificent detached house measures over 5000 square feet with the most incredible proportions in all of the principal rooms. The current owners found the original building plans from the early 1900s in the attic. The plans (by Edwin Evans of Lavender Hill) show a billiard room on the top floor which remind us that the Edwardians quite rightly valued gentlemanly pursuits over and above boring things, like bedrooms and bathrooms. The garden is incredible, it was built with a wine cellar, it has off street parking and it isn’t linked to any neighbours – what isn’t there to love. I desperately want this house for Christmas.”
