A substantial late 1920s five bedroom, two bathroom, detached family residence in a highly popular and much requested East Molesey location with easy access to the River Thames (Nr. Molesey Lock), and a short walk to Hampton Court Station (zone 6) and the village area of Bridge Road.
A rare opportunity to acquire an attractive, three storey, family home; in the same ownership for some 60 years. The property has been well cared for and provides delightful character features reminiscent of its age. Such features include good room proportions, tiled fireplaces, original panelled doors (painted) and part original leaded windows. There is plenty of scope to extend / re-configure, if required, and with some internal modernisation needed, this represents an ideal opportunity for an incoming purchaser to implement their own ideas.
The accommodation has flexible uses and is easily adaptable. The ground floor comprises entrance porch with two deep storage cupboards; this in turn, opens up to a delightful reception hallway (approx. 15' x 11' / 4.5 x 3.5m) currently housing a baby-grand piano, with a lovely fireplace and matching side windows. A double-opening between the reception hall and sitting room, creates a natural feeling of space — and is also great for entertaining. The front sitting room also provides fireplace and bay window, whilst the rear reception (dining / family room) enjoys garden access and a partial opening to the kitchen. A modern fitted kitchen is equipped with all necessary appliances, and also has garden access.
At first floor level a charming landing has a tall leaded-side window. A generous master bedroom - with bay window - replicates the size of the main reception below (approx. 17' x 14' / 5.3 x 4.1m) with built-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom. There are four further bedrooms on this floor (three with built-in cupboards) with independent use of an updated shower room. From the rear bedroom an open tread staircase leads up to the loft room with open eaves access. This rooms features a mansard dormer window with partial views over the River and Lock.
A highly useful garden room / workshop (inc. fitted work-bench) accommodates a Worcester boiler (installed October 2018) with further door leading to the attached garage. Externally the gardens are established with mature trees, plants and shrubs, including a 'brick' boundary wall (front and rear) allowing excellent privacy and enclosure. There is an upper patio adjacent to the house, further rear patio, outside WC and useful side access. The front garden is lawned with driveway parking for two cars in tandem.
Location: A highly regarded 'tree-lined' road in East Molesey Village very close to the River Thames with access to the towpath / lock. The Thames towpath leads to the Rowing and Cricket clubs north, and south towards historic Hampton Court Bridge and Palace. By car the A308/9 leads to the M3 / A3 / M25 providing swift access to both London Airports. Well respected private and sate schools and Royal parks are on all the door-step, making this a great place to set up home.
