A traditional four bedroom detached family house surrounded by beautifully established gardens sitting in an overall plot approaching quarter of an acre.
Built in 1924, our client is only the third owner of this charming period property. Attractive elevations are of Edwardian influence with noticeably tall chimneys visible from the rear, whilst to the fore, a projected front gable with catslide roof meets a large storm porch.
The accommodation is arranged naturally over two floors with good width and provides tall ceilings throughout. The ground floor comprises a generous reception hallway, which in turn, opens to all rooms. There is a lovely front drawing room with a 'seven pane' square bay window, as well as an imposing working fireplace with marble surround. A dining room, again with an attractive working fireplace, provides French doors with a lovely vista along the garden. Adjacent to the dining room is a kitchen / breakfast room, also with delightful views of the garden, complete with range cooker and granite work-tops. Completing the ground floor accommodation is useful utility / store room, along with an independent guest cloakroom / WC accessed from the hallway.
The first floor reveals a good central landing opening to all rooms. A sizeable master bedroom replicates the front reception below with a small ensuite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms (two with views over the rear garden) all being supported by a traditionally appointed main family bathroom recently updated to provide separate shower enclosure, along with a double ended roll-top bath with clawed feet.
Externally there is a good frontage with driveway parking for several cars, leading to an attached garage 'above standard size', with useful double doors to the front and rear. A large rear garden backing onto the Metropolitan Police Stables, extends to approx. 125' x 51' enjoying incredible privacy and seclusion. There is ample space to include a large self contained garden studio.
Whilst many will appreciate the charm and scale of its original layout and design, general modernisation is required, but due to the overall size of the plot, there is enormous scope to enhance and develop this property, subject of course to usual consents.
Location: The property is well placed for the amenities of East Molesey and Thames Ditton, which offer an array of independent shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars as well as the River Thames, Hampton Court Green and Bushy Park. Regular direct trains into Waterloo (in under 35 mins) are found at Thames Ditton and Hampton Court stations, within approx. 0.5 / 0.7 miles respectively. Esher station is approx. 1.2 miles, with a faster service to Waterloo (approx. 23 mins). The Elmbridge Borough is very popular with families due to the excellent range of both state and independent schools in the area, including the well respected Esher College. Imber Court and the Pavilion are popular for locals for sporting activities.
