A charming mid-Victorian semi-detached Villa providing flexible three / four bedroom, two bathroom, accommodation over three natural floors, and conveniently situated right in the heart of Hampton Wick, directly opposite the railway station and just few minutes' walk of Kingston Riverside and extensive shopping.

This intriguing character property is deceptive in size, the overall floor area (119 sq. ms / 1,284 sq. ft) is simply not visible from the front elevation.  Most buyers will view the property as a comfortable three bedroom house with generous reception / home working spaces.  ?
The current owners undertook a major project in 2016 to extend at the rear and open up the lower ground floor 'front to back' to provide an inviting open plan, kitchen / dining / living room with good head height.  The whole area is laid with natural wood flooring and measures approximately 33' x 15' in total.  This is a great space.  The main living area is slightly staggered from kitchen / diner which creates a comfortable sitting / TV room, and this space enjoys double doors with same level access to a sunken garden terrace.  Also on this floor is a good size laundry / shower room, as well as a highly useful deep under-stairs store room, perfect for the wine collection !  ?
The entrance level (raised ground floor) gives way to a good size hallway which opens up in the centre to a galleried landing.  A rear bedroom with part vaulted ceiling enjoys elevated views over the garden.  Adjacent to the bedroom is the main family bathroom; fitted with a modern suite including bath and separate shower.  The front room features a rather distinctive fireplace, surround and mantle, currently used as a work room, but would make a lovely sitting room or alternatively a fourth bedroom. ?
Upstairs the are two good bedrooms, the front of which is the bigger of the two rooms, with built-in alcove wardrobe.  The rear bedroom is child's room with bespoke mezzanine bed with built-in step ladder and useful storage.  This room also has views over the garden, and displays an original period fireplace.       

Externally the rear garden boasts a sunny south / west facing aspect, and is a very good size (64' depth) for such a central location.  A stunning 'weeping willow' provides shade and dappled light in equal measure. There is a garden storage shed and partial side access.  EPC E. 

Location:  Excellent train and bus connections are on the doorstep, as are local shops, popular pubs and restaurants in the High Street.  For more comprehensive shopping and general amenities, Kingston Town centre is short stroll across the bridge with easy access to John Lewis department store and Waitrose food hall.  There are many good schools and nurseries in the immediate vicinity and for outdoor enthusiasts, lovely stretches of the River Thames are nearby as well Royal Parks' for walking, cycling and running.
