A charming and extensively renovated two double bedroom terrace property, tucked away in a secluded cul-de-sac, in a popular and neighbourly part of Teddington village on the border with Hampton Wick. Royal Bushy Park and outstanding schools nearby, along with excellent transport links into Central London and Heathrow Airport.
Lovingly owned within the same family for 34 years. In 2015 the property was comprehensively renovated to a high standard. The home was extended to respect the original period of construction (photos and building control certification available following the stages of the renovation). British made parts and materials used wherever possible. Works involved new plumbing and condensing boiler, complete electrical re-wire, new pine floorboards, significant structural improvements and an individually designed kitchen/diner with architectural glazing and with bi-fold doors to the garden. In addition, new double glazed sash style windows were installed throughout.
Internally the ground floor accommodation enjoys an open plan double reception room and side staircase (storage under) with twin openings giving way to the kitchen/diner. In our opinion this configuration of space generates better through light and is generally more sociable. The kitchen features part vaulted ceiling with twin skylights and is fitted with composite stone worktops, plenty of storage and integrated appliances made in UK to include fridge/freezer, washing machine, dish washer, five burner gas hob and high-level oven.
Outside the rear garden measures 32' x 15' and enjoys a sunny south, south-east aspect. There is water and power supply by the back door and brand-new fencing between the houses. An electricity supply with conduit cabling serves the rear garden, planned for the provision of a garden studio / summer house / home-office. There is a small front garden open to the street. It should be noted that there is unrestricted on-street parking.
Location: School House Lane, falling within the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, is a turning off Wick Road, 0.41 miles to Hampton Wick Train Station and 0.68m to Teddington, with easy access to Kingston town centre, two Royal Parks, The River Thames and many local amenities. It consists mainly of workers cottages built by the Gas Board in 1925, which makes for an attractive street scene. Local residents are rather proud of the community spirit here - highlighted by the success of the little Orchard at the end of the street; an area for locals that hosts an annual summer party, Christmas carols and is a safe area for children to play in. There are regular bus connections direct to Teddington, Twickenham, Richmond, and Heathrow Airport (285, R68 and X26 bus), Kingston and Hampton Court Palace in the other direction. From Kingston, there are bus connections to Putney, Chelsea and Fulham and central London. There are also regular night buses from Central London to Kingston. There is also a great award-winning gastro pub (The Lion) nearby with a lovely garden, serving French / Irish cuisine and is highly rated by locals.
