A luxury basement complete with a wine cellar for 1,000 bottles, media room, and library/music/Chinese room has been approved by Merton Council.

Homeowners of 67 Murray Road in Wimbledon Village faced opposition from neighbours towards the digdown due to concerns about disruption to water tables.

But the application was approved by planning officers at a meeting on Thursday, August 21.

Covering the whole ground floor plan, designs also include an underground gym, sauna, covered terrace and ensuite bedroom.
