Elmbourne House – Information
This beautiful Victorian property is located in the leafy suburb of Tooting Bec, opposite Tooting Common with a delightfully green outlook yet just a short walk to the nearest tube station whisking you into the centre of London in just 19 minutes. The wrought iron railings, decorative window panes, cornicing and marble fireplaces are stunning examples of late Victorian architecture. The interiors are incredibly stylish having been designed by the noted interior designer Catherine Woram, with bright whites and soft pastel accents used throughout the property enhancing the sense of light and space.
The stunning drawing room has a marble Victorian fireplace and beautiful oak parquet flooring. There is ample comfortable seating in hand picked antique furniture and a fabulous double height ceiling.
