A spacious three-bedroom duplex flat with private balcony forming part of a highly desirable and much requested neighbourhood community of Richmond Hill.

Onslow House was designed by renowned British architect and designer Eric Lyons c. 1952, who achieved great recognition for his experimental modernist design and is perhaps best known for his partnership with Geoffrey Townsend in the well renowned Span Developments.

"The test of good housing is not whether it can be built easily, but whether it can be lived in easily" Eric Lyons

This purpose-built maisonette (one of four, occupying an end position) is arranged over two floors (first and second floors) and is presented in good overall condition.  The current owners have made a number of improvements since they acquired the property in 2016 from long-term residents.   The property is light and spacious and has beautiful far reaching views from dual aspect windows.  To the lower floor, the property comprises; a spacious entrance hallway with built-in storage, and a large open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with modern fitted kitchen. Both rooms are bathed in natural light enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows, opening to a private balcony from the sitting room.  Upstairs are three bedrooms (two doubles and a single/study; the main bedroom with step-in wardrobe), supported by a modern refitted family bathroom.  Above the bathroom is a highly useful storage space, replicating the size/footprint of the bathroom.
