This lovely period property has been beautifully restored to a high standard with many original features on display. The ground floor and loft extensions have both been added with much thought to maintain the traditional style and layout of the accommodation. Quality bespoke joinery - cabinets and bookshelves - are fitted throughout, together with recently installed double glazed hardwood sash and casement windows to blend in with the architectural style.
The ground floor in particular is well configured with separate entrance hall, and provides a charming front sitting room with bay window and a lovely cast iron fireplace, and with double doors leading to a central reception / dining room, which in turn, enjoys direct garden access. The kitchen is very much its own space, yet with twin openings to create a clever, partial open-plan feel, which helps distribute the natural light. The kitchen is fitted with modern units and solid wood worktops, and provides space for all necessary appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, gas cooker / extractor and fridge freezer).
Upstairs to the first floor is an an original box staircase with spindles; the matching balustrade continues to the staircase on the top floor. The main front bedroom is rather elegant with beautiful ornate cast iron place and twin wardrobes to alcoves, while the adjoining double room, again with built in cupboards and a distinctive cast iron fireplace, is currently set up as a comfortable home office. The bathroom on this floor is nicely fitted with modern suite and tiling, heated towel radiated, again well thought through, with provision for inspection panels to access essential pipework, if required.
The top floor reveals a small half landing with skylight window, leading to large double bedroom which floods with natural light via two velux windows and also provides double-doors, featuring a Juliette-balcony. There is plenty of built-in storage, part hanging / part shelving, and also access to useful eaves storage area. This room enjoys its own ensuite shower room, fitted with a modern suite, tiling and heated towel radiator.
Outside the front garden is enclosed by a picket fence with mature shrubbery for privacy to the front living room, whilst the garden is an absolute sun-trap with patio, lawn, side borders and small storage shed, water tap, power and lighting. It should be noted that the garden is completely enclosed by neighbouring gardens to provide an additional layer of added security.
Location: Wick Road is an enviable location, south east of central Teddington. Hampton Wick mainline station is under half a mile away (0.42m) and both Kingston and Teddington are within easy walking distance. Royal Bushy Park is close by (0.2m) and can be reached via footbridge in nearby Bushy Park Road. For those with children the property falls within the catchment area of Collis and Sacred Heart Primary Schools, Hampton Wick junior and infants, and also Teddington senior school. Local residents are rather proud of the community spirit here - highlighted by the success of the little Orchard off School House Lane - an area for locals that hosts an annual summer party, Christmas carols, and an area for children to play in.
