An immaculate, recently refurbished, first floor 'lift-serviced' apartment with secure underground parking, forming part of the prestigious Riverside development of Marina Place, adjacent to Kingston Bridge.
Marina Place is a landmark development on the bank of River Thames at Hampton Wick with fabulous views across the water to Kingston Riverside. The development was constructed approximately sixteen years ago, consisting of one, two and three bedroom apartments with private marina and concierge. The concierge is not actually serviced charged to the one bedroom apartments, but it still provides an additional layer of comfort and security for the residents.
Inside the front communal foyer are securely locked individual mail-boxes with further door to a spacious inner lobby where the lift is located. The lift services all levels including the underground garaged area — of which the space for this apartment is conveniently located immediately opposite from the basement foyer to the left. It should be noted that a clever two-way 'traffic-light' system is operated in the garage with secure gated fob entry.
No. 5 is one of the larger one bedroom units (48.1 sqm / 518 sq ft) and is also an end flat — so external walls to two sides. The current owners have own owned since new, but have recently undertaken a full programme of refurbishment to include a luxury bathroom with smart fittings and concealed lighting, a brand new fully integrated kitchen (oven, hob, extractor, duel washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge / freezer) fresh decor, new carpets and newly installed double glazed windows to the bedroom and living room.
The apartment is well planned and all rooms are of decent proportion including the entrance hall which sets the tone for the overall feeling of space. It really is in 'turn-key' condition and well worth viewing.
Location: Marina Place is accessed via Old Bridge Street, which in turn, leads onto High Street Hampton Wick. The train station (35 mins to Waterloo) is just a few minutes' walk away as is Barge Walk, and Home Park leading to Hampton Court Palace. Thriving Kingston Riverside (John Lewis and Waitrose) and other major department stores, shops, theatre, cinema complex and quality restaurants are all on the doorstep.
Tenure: 125 year lease from 1 January 2002 (approx. 108 years remaining)
Service charge: approx. £187.5 per month
Ground rent: £50 per annum
