A stylish and sophisticated duplex maisonette with direct river views, forming part of an award winning span development by well renowned architects Geoffrey Townsend and Eric Lyons.

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

- Eric Lyons.

This is certainly the case at Mallard Place, a pioneer development consisting of 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, and 3 & 4 bedroom Townhouses on a secluded stretch of the Thames with incredibly well maintained and thoughtfully planned communal areas.  Residents also enjoy exclusive use of an outdoor heated swimming pool, beautiful lawned gardens alongside the Thames with a pontoon, and private moorings are available on a 10 year licence - please enquire for further details.

Two bedroom duplex apartments are rarely available.  The apartment being offered for-sale in our opinion occupies a favourable position with River views from the kitchen / diner and also the master bedroom, whilst the main living area and second bedroom overlooks a tastefully landscaped central courtyard with delightful Water Garden.

The internal space has been fastidiously modernised by the current owners and displays a rather stylish Scandinavian / mid century look. Upon entering the apartment you cannot help but notice the galleried landing with double height vaulted ceiling and the immediate flow of light due to an open plan arrangement of the accommodation.  The under stairs area has been designed with low level storage and, adjacent to this, a bespoke desk & work area.   The sitting room with built-in book case and low level storage with media unit, provides partial open plan living to the kitchen / dining area. 

A German kitchen by LEICHT is fitted with arctic white units and is complimented by 12mm Silestone worktops, under unit LED wall lights (cool white) and a full range of quality integrated appliances.  To complete this level the whole of the downstairs area laid with Amtico Spacia flooring in bronze.

Upstairs the main bedroom is a large double with built-in wardrobes and the second bedroom is also a double again with a built in wardrobe. Should a new owner wish to use this room as a permanent work space, CAT 6 media cabling is installed - desk below.  The bathroom is beautifully appointed with Bette shower / bath, Catalano (Italian) sink and storage, dual fuel towel radiator and is finished with quality Porcelanosa floor tiles. 

Externally there is an undercroft garage providing highly useful storage / utility space with plumbing for a washer-dryer, with an additional parking space on the front driveway.  For guests, there are plenty of visitor parking bays and paths and road ways are well lit. 

Tenure   A long lease is held on a 215 year term from 1979 with a peppercorn rent.

Service Charge  £295.00 per quarter (£1,180 pa) to include external paintwork / external window cleaning and cleaning and maintaining of gardens, grounds and pool.  EPC C
