Is that the Cotswolds? No, it’s a West London two-bed cottage that could be yours for less than £1m.
You don’t often hear of London cottages. It’s all flashy studio apartments halfway up a skyscraper and Georgian town houses that cost the same price as a palace in Northumberland.
So it really is a rarity to see a property of this type on the market in the capital. This gorgeous Grade II listed chocolate box house is more than just a gimmick too.
It’s in a suitably beautiful part of Wimbledon, right next to the Sunken Garden in Cannizaro Park, making it ideal for dog walkers or joggers.
The back garden even looks out over it, providing the most spectacular views out across the park.
King’s College School and The Study Preparatory School are quite literally just down the road, and Wimbledon underground station, as well as the Wimbledon tram station and Dundonald Road are a 20-minute walk.
On The Market describe the house as: “A rare and well cared for Grade 2 listed, two bedroom cottage in a superb location with exceptional views.

“The property offers warm and cosy accommodation full of original features, but has been carefully modernised by the current owner including well thought out storage and bespoke cabinetry.”
No cottage would be complete without exposed beams, vaulted ceilings and an inglenook fireplace.
The trademark of this place really is the 24ft south facing terrace, though. The perfect spot for you to enjoy a glass of something nice on a warm summer’s evening.
For those who are worried about what to do with the car, the house comes with a parking permit for the common.
Although it may look like it’s from the Cotswolds, it does cost considerably more than a pad there. The whole thing is valued at the reduced price of £975k.
But for that, you could be one of the few people who can say they live in a cottage in London.
