PS Right on track at Clapham Junction
Wednesday 09 February 2005
The property details say the house is "conveniently located for local transport". Well, like so many other examples of estate-agent-speak, that's one hell of an understatement. The house has a pretty decked top-floor roof terrace, which is slap-bang next to the tracks at Clapham Junction; so close, in fact, that if you took a fancy to one of the commuters on the 8.25 to Waterloo while it was making an unscheduled stop outside your back yard, you'd practically be able to jump into the carriage with them.
Apart from the trainspottery roof terrace, the house is spacious, with an open-plan double reception room leading to a handcrafted Ralph Alexander kitchen. There's also a downstairs guest WC, cellar, a large stylish family bathroom with bath and separate shower, and a separate patio garden on ground level.
Amies Street runs between Lavender Hill and Latchmere Road and is close to all the popular bars and restaurants of bustling Battersea Rise. (pounds 380,000, Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward, 020-7924 1944)
