Miles & Bird Estate Agents, covering Hampton Wick, are delighted to have sold this immaculately presented and beautifully maintained Victorian home occupying a highly desirable Teddington enclave with easy access to mainline station and only moments from requested schools, Royal Bushy Park and School House Lane Orchard. A fine example of a late Georgian semi-detached property providing three bedroom, two bathroom accommodation, situated in a centrally located side road close to Park, Station and Riverside, falling within a desirable and much requested part of Hampton Wick's Conservation area.

This delightful period property is well presented throughout with many original features on display including ornate fireplaces to principle rooms, sash windows furnished with shutters, stripped doors and floorboards, and a noticeably wider staircase which is reminiscent of the Georgian period. Approaching the house you are greeted by a bespoke reproduction hardwood front-door having stained and leaded glass windows 'in keeping of its age' designed and by fitted Voysey & Jones of London. It should be noted that a brand new roof was fitted approximately five ago.    

Internally the accommodation is flexible, arranged mainly over two floors, with the advantage of an additional room at lower ground level (with light-well) currently set up as a third bedroom.  Alternatively this space would make an ideal hobbies / music room or perhaps a home office or TV / cinema room.  

The ground floor comprises entrance hall with access to a useful shower room and WC, two spacious independent reception rooms both laid with hardwood parquet flooring to a herringbone pattern (also to the lower ground room).  The front reception features a rather imposing fireplace, whilst the middle reception includes an inviting wood-burning stove.  A modern and well equipped kitchen with stone worktop opens through garden room / conservatory, currently arranged as a dinning space.  

Upstairs there are two good double bedrooms, replicating the two receptions below, both with sash windows and individual fireplaces complete with stone surrounds and mantle.   The rear bedroom gives a way to ensuite bathroom, fitted with a free standing enamelled cast-iron roll top bath; complete with brass 'ball and claw feet' which is now rarely found.  The taps, towel rail and sink unit are all befitting of the age and character of the property. 

Externally a walled rear garden is hard landscaped with 'low-level' retainer, planted with mature trees and shrubs.  The main feature of the garden is a beautiful Wisteria  separating the the two patios; this provides a nice shade from the afternoon / evening sunshine.                   

Location:  St. John's Road connects Church Grove and Park Road in the heart of Hampton Wick, the train station (35 mins to Waterloo) just a few minutes' walk away.  Thriving Kingston Riverside (John Lewis and Waitrose), Bushy and Home Park along with Hampton Court Palace are all on the doorstep.  Local amenities, restaurants, and shopping are plentiful as are excellent schools and nurseries.
