A fine example of a four bedroom mid-Victorian Villa standing in nearly quarter of an acre plot with extensive parking to the fore and surrounded by quintessentially English gardens.
Built in the mid 1860s these houses were originally constructed to house senior railway managers. As such, features include high ceilings throughout with numerous period embellishments still intact. The current owners acquired the property in 2009 and carefully reconfigured the internal layout, mainly to the rear, which now incorporates a large open plan kitchen / dining room in country style, centred around a lovely AGA range cooker and a bespokely commissioned solid oak island.
Other rooms on the ground floor include a spacious receiving hall with quarry tilled floor, and an impressive double length drawing / reception room with an ornate marble fireplace and boxed french windows boasting original working shutters. With good circulation space the ground floor is complete with inner vestibule leading to a guest cloakroom / WC, and an adjoining utility / boot room off the kitchen.
The first floor provides a roomy landing which in turn gives way to four good size bedrooms. The two principle bedrooms both feature built-in cupboards and pretty fireplaces. The main family bathroom on this floor is fitted to a period style with Fired Earth porcelain tiles.
Externally, the rear garden is traditionally landscaped and is planted with a variety of established plants, trees, shrubs and box-hedging to the left side. There are lovely vistas enjoyed from different positions within the garden. To the rear section stands a good size, fully insulated, home office / studio cabin. The front garden has a gravelled driveway with partly attached garage with rear door giving side access to the garden.
Location: Hampton is a quiet residential backwater, yet still within the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. The railway station is just over half a mile away (0.6m) with Waitrose food hall located opposite Station Road. Lovely stretches of the River Thames and Royal Parks are located nearby, an open air lido located on the High Street which is a popular destination for locals in the summer months. Ofsted outstanding schools are plentiful and closely located independent schools include Lady Eleanor Hollis, Hampton Boys Senior and Prep, Hampton Court House and Twickenham Preparatory to name but a few.
