A traditional bay fronted Victorian property, tastefully presented and with lots of character, situated in a popular side road location, close to Hampton Wick station, Langdon and Bushy Parks, with high ceilings, working fireplace and a sunny garden.
This charming period property boasts a classic elevation with "London stock" brickwork, and forms a delightful terrace of seven houses - the largest style in the road - enjoying established front gardens with mature trees and hedgerows for privacy. Internally the house has been extended in two areas on the ground floor, along with a double size loft extension to provide a total floor area of some 1,894 sqft / 176 sqm. Significantly more space for value than similar priced properties.
On approach a tessellated-tiled front path leads to a recessed 'storm porch' with hardwood front-door having staines and leaded glass windows, including house numbering to the glass panel above. The ground floor accommodation consists of an entrance hall with original floor-boards and balustraded staircase, an elegant double reception room - ceiling height 9' 7" / 2.9m - the front room of which features a lovely broad square bay window (currently housing a piano) and an attractive cast-iron fireplace with matching alcove cabinetry and shelving. To the rear, a modern kitchen with breakfast bar, has all necessary integrated appliances and a wide opening extending through to a dining / garden room with twin doors out to the garden. To complete the ground floor, there is a highly useful laundry / utility room with glazed roof, work-surface with sink and drainer, and plenty of space for washing machine, separate dryer and the all important American style fridge/freezer.
The upper floors feature galleried half-landings; the lower level (first floor) provides rear double bedroom - current set up as a study - and separate guest WC. The upper level (first floor) has two double bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes, again with good ceiling height, the middle bedroom with a pretty, original, painted fireplace. The main family bathroom on this floor has been recently upgraded and includes a clever, recessed but open, walk-in shower. The second floor provides further bedroom (lower level) and the (upper level) consists of the main bedroom with Juliette-balcony and en-suite shower fitted to a wet-room style.
Additional features include quality hardwood double-glazed sash windows; many are fitted with smart plantation shutters, a good standard of decoration throughout and the current owners have also installed a water softener.
Externally the gardens are low maintenance, there are two terrace / patios in the rear garden and a small timber shed, external water tap, power and lighting and the advantage of secure rear access for bikes etc. The front garden with a mature Acer tree, is part walled, with bin store and further low-level store.
Location: Wick Road is a desirable location, south east of central Teddington on the boarder of Hampton Wick. Hampton Wick mainline station is under half a mile away (0.42m) and both Kingston and Teddington with superb shopping and amenities are within easy walking distance. Bushy Park is only a short walk (0.2m) and can be reached via footbridge in nearby Bushy Park Road. In recent years this area has become a choice location as it falls within the catchments of Collis and Sacred Heart Primary Schools, Hampton Wick junior and infants, and also Teddington senior school.
