A charming two double bedroom semi-detached property in this much requested Riverside location, with established and beautifully landscaped gardens backing directly onto the River Ember, which in turn, allows for private mooring and fishing rights.
It is believed that the property dates to 1842 and is recorded by Elmbridge Borough as a local home of historical interest.
Although the main front door is still operative, the current owners prefer to use the side entrance and enter via the kitchen through a stable-door; one could say creating a semi-rural feel of living in the country!
A good size double reception room, divided by an open tread staircase, forms separate sitting and dining areas with multi-pane Georgian style windows (triple aspect) making it a bright space throughout the day. The sitting room features an ornate cast-iron fireplace - with living flame coal effect gas fire - having decorative centrepiece and timber surround. A modern fitted kitchen opens to a breakfast room extension with views over the garden and double doors opening onto a paved terrace.
Upstairs the accommodation comprises landing (with access to loft space) opening to a good main double bedroom (front aspect) and another good double (rear aspect). With two steps down from the landing a modern bathroom, in excellent condition, is located independently to the rear.
A particular feature of the property are the stunning gardens meandering down to The River Ember, where a 'raised terrace' and BBQ area (space for table and chairs with comfortable seating for four to six people) located adjacent to River. The gardens boast established plants, evergreen trees and shrubs with strategically located ground-floor lighting making this a wonderful space all year round. There is a large shed with power and light, and separate water tap by the house.
