Church Street, Hampton

3 1 3

A rare opportunity to purchase a converted former Methodist chapel (c.1861) located in the heart of Hampton Village with easy access to the River Thames and Royal Bushy Park.

This fascinating property is currently home to an award-winning architect and used as a private residence.  The chapel is listed under Townscape Merit – deemed a local property of historical interest – and was converted in 2014 to provide two, new, semi-detached houses.  Our client's property forms the 'front' half of the building which contains the original facade with its magnificent centerpiece being a 'Neo-Gothic' stone window.  This elegant window spans two floors internally.  There are six further ogival windows and doors, each furnished with individually designed working shutters.  
Other notable features include wide board wood flooring with under floor heating, bespoke storage throughout, all within high ceilinged accommodation which is unmistakably different in shape and form to standard housing stock.
Upon entering the property, the hallway leads you through to a large reception which is open-plan to a well-equipped kitchen / dining area.  As you enter the room, immediately on your right is the library area, with bespoke cabinetry and shelving.  From this area, double doors lead out to a walled courtyard garden – with enough space for a small table and chairs as well as a few pot plants and window boxes.  To complete the ground floor, there is an independent laundry room combined with a guest cloakroom / W.C. 

The first floor consists of a landing with access to a large principal bedroom (or further reception room as currently arranged making a perfect live / work set up) with dressing area and en-suite shower room.  There is a further double bedroom and independent bathroom on this floor.  The second floor is made up entirely of the third bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.  This bedroom is bright with lovely views down Church Street, and benefits from good storage.

Location: Set in the heart of Hampton conservation area, the chapel is ideally located just a short walk to Bushy Park as well as the River Thames where Garrick's Temple to Shakespeare is found.  The nearest train station is Hampton (approx. 0.8 miles) with a South Western railway service into Central London. There is a bus stop approx. 40 metres away providing swift services to Hampton Court and Kingston or, alternatively, to Twickenham and Richmond.  A Waitrose supermarket is located at the end of Station Road.  Nearby road connections include the M3 and M25, with easy access to Heathrow airport.  Immediately on the doorstep (two mins away) are the banks of the Thames with sailing school, a small marina with mooring and cross river ferry.
