A tastefully refurbished and skilfully extended Victorian home with useful outdoor garden room, situated in a desirable and much requested part of Teddington with easy access to Royal Bushy Park, choice of mainline stations, as well as excellent local schools.
The property is situated in the 'cul-de-sac' section of Bushy Park Road, occupying an enviable spot with a lovely private outlook backing directly onto the School House Lane Orchard; the immediate area recently designated with Conservation area status.
This beautiful character property has undergone complete refurbishment using quality materials and bespoke fitments; the sellers engaged the services of a well-respected local architect Simon Merony. The ground floor has been re-modelled to include a highly practical central laundry room with separate cloakroom with W.C., whilst the rear opens to a well-designed open-plan kitchen / living room with 'same level' garden access.
The hand-crafted kitchen by Shaker workshop includes quality cabinetry, stone work-tops with upstands, built-in pantry and adjoining utility cupboard. The living area with its vaulted ceiling and architectural glazing enjoys lots of natural light. In addition, there are three large remote controlled Velux windows with fitted blinds: the windows incorporate a feature setting of 'self-closure' with rain sensors. To complete the ground floor; an independent front sitting room with bay-window, has become a cosy winter snug with combined office space, all offset by an attractive working fireplace with decorative tiled slips, as well as traditional alcove cabinets and shelving.
Upstairs a split-level landing opens to a good main bedroom with twin 'picture' windows furnished with shutters, Avoca period style column radiator, pretty cast-iron fireplace and built-in wardrobes. Next door is a further double bedroom, whilst on the lower landing; a beautifully appointed bathroom is fitted with marble tiles (mandarin stone) which also features in the guest cloakroom downstairs.
It should also be noted; German wood floors are laid throughout the house, as well as new skirting boards and cornicing. In addition, a large capacity boiler was installed with sufficient provision to service a future loft conversion (stpp), and operated by NEST thermostat control in the kitchen, linking to a smart phone app.
Externally the front garden is enclosed by picket fence, whilst the rear garden is of south / easterly aspect with rear gate leading directly to the little orchard - how lovely for children. The outdoor garden room has power and light, and slate stone patio / terrace next to the house.
Location: This area is coveted by local residents who are rather proud of the community spirit here - highlighted by the success of the little orchard at the end of School House Lane (also a pathway leads from Bushy Park Road). This is an open green space for locals that hosts an annual summer party, Christmas Carols, and an area for children to play in. Catchment for Collis, Sacred Heart and Hampton Wick primary schools and Teddington senior school on Broom Road.
