A stylish and sophisticated duplex maisonette with undercroft garage, forming part of an award winning private Riverside development by well renowned architects Geoffrey Townsend and Eric Lyons.
"The test of good housing is not whether it can be built easily, but whether it can be lived in easily"
- Eric Lyons.
Mallard Place is a highly regarded riverside development consisting of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, and 3 & 4 bedroom Townhouses on a secluded stretch of the Thames with incredibly well maintained and thoughtfully planned communal areas. Residents also enjoy exclusive use of an outdoor heated swimming pool (April to October), beautiful lawned gardens alongside the Thames with a pontoon, and *private moorings are available on a 10 year licence - please enquire for further details.
Two bedroom duplex apartments are rarely available. The internal space has been modernised by the current owner with solid oak flooring throughout the lower floor; covering the living, dining and kitchen area. Upon entering the apartment you cannot help but notice the smart galleried landing with double height vaulted ceiling; this provides a good feeling of light and space due to the open plan arrangement of the accommodation with 'single person' balcony off the living area. A Smallbone kitchen (painted) with granite worktops and breakfast bar provides plenty of storage with built-in oven, hob & extractor hood, and space for all necessary appliances. The under stairs has bespoke 'pull-out' storage for cloaks and shoes, and adjacent to this, a shallow fitted oak-desk.
Upstairs the main bedroom is a large double with built-in wardrobes and the second bedroom is also a double. An oversized loft hatch was added to the second bedroom with clever pull-down timber steps providing additional useful storage. The bathroom is beautifully appointed - newly installed c. 2016, plus a Worcester Bosch boiler - finished with quality Porcelanosa floor tiles, clever bespoke and concealed storage units, heated towel radiator, and feature back-lit ceiling light.
Externally there is an undercroft garage complete with utility area with space for a separate washing machine and tumble-dryer, and further space for a chest freezer if required. For visitors and guests, there are plenty of parking bays, and paths and road ways are well signposted and lit.
