A spacious two bedroom balconied apartment with delightful window views 'front and rear' along with garaged underground parking, all set within beautifully maintained gardens and grounds approaching 3/4 of acre, including a private allotment for the exclusive use of residents.
Motcombe house is prestigious apartment building consisting of only 11 flats with carriage driveway to the fore and plenty of visitor parking bays. Remote fob entry gains access to the garage area as well the main entrance. Internally, common parts are immaculate, only re-decorated in November 2019.
The apartment itself is presented in excellent decorative order and floods with natural night; easterly morning sunlight to both bedrooms, whilst the kitchen, living room and balcony absorb the light throughout the day and into the evening due to its south westerly aspect. At over 83.5 m2 (900 ft2) there is a good feeling of space. The living room is approx. 7.0 x 4.0m, this allows for comfortable dining and separate sitting area with sliding door opening onto the balcony, which in turn, accommodates a small table and two chairs and space for pot plants. The views are cherished and very private.
The kitchen is well equipped with integrated AEG oven, hob and extractor, with dishwasher, washing machine, as well as a large American fridge freezer. The kitchen also includes undercounter lighting, back lit display cabinets, and a waste disposal unit. There is a modern bathroom with power shower over the bath, and adjacent to this is a separate W.C. Further benefits include GCH with a modern Worcester combi-boiler, quality sash style double glazed windows, and superb storage provision throughout including fitted wardrobes to both bedrooms.
Externally communal grounds are incredibly well tended, extensively planted with evergreen plants, trees and shrubs. The rear lawn is dominated by two stunning protected cedar trees. A small gate in the far corner opens to a private allotment.
Location: Palace Road is a desirable tree-lined road and is highly coveted. Motcombe House is situated at the more serene end of road, yet still within comfortable walking distance of Hampton Court Station, Riverside, and the local village area known as Bridge Road. Here you will find atmospheric cafes and restaurants, as well as quality independent retailers and shops, including art galleries, antique shops, butcher, florist, and wine merchant to name but a few. There are considerable green open spaces to enjoy such as Hurst Park, or just across the bridge in Royal Bushy or Home Park adjacent to the Thames and historic Hampton Court Palace.
Tenure: virtual freehold with a long lease in excess of 950 years.
