Lyford Road by Charles Voysey

A favourite of ours – and a featured property for today is a rare and special detached villa, designed by the world famous Arts and Crafts master architect Charles Voysey in 1903. Apart from rumours of Sophie Dahl we don’t know much about the owners but walk past in awe and jealousy most weekends.

The property retains all the period restored features which makes the house so unique and is situated directly opposite Wandsworth Common giving uninterrupted park views with a magnificent landscaped rear mature garden and heated swimming pool. This is a favourite on the Magdalen Estate and one of the finest examples of a Charles Voysey house – we understand that it may be the only London designed house by Voysey.
