A delightful Arts and Crafts detached family house offering wonderful scope, with 200 foot rear garden leading down to the river bank.
This really is a rare opportunity to acquire a delightful detached 'Arts and Crafts' riverside home, situated in one of the most desirable settings in the borough of Richmond. Built around the turn of the previous century and enviably situated in this idyllic backwater the house is set well back from the road by virtue of the 80ft front garden.
The drawing room is particularly appealing with a generous ceiling height, large fireplace and direct access onto the rear terrace. The river can be seen from this room and there are two further reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room that provide excellent additional entertaining space on this level.
On the first floor is a generous principal bedroom suite, four further well proportioned bedrooms (one of which is also a suite) and a family bathroom, with two further bedrooms on the top floor. Three of the bedrooms have views of the rear garden and the river.
The front garden is delightfully landscaped in a more formal design. An immaculate lawn, a young copper beech, rose trees, a paved pathway and well planted boundaries which afford a good degree of privacy are all features of this compelling approach to the house. The gardens to the rear are also landscaped and very well maintained. A sweeping lawn over two levels runs down towards the river bank. There are well stocked borders, along with a selection of mature trees including a substantial copper beach. Other mature trees to both boundaries ensures a good degree of privacy. There is a river mooring for a couple of smaller boats or a larger river cruiser.
A garage building at the front of the property offers parking for 4 cars, an inspection pit, extensive storage and a particularly striking roofline with a handsome clock tower. It may be possible to convert this building into further accommodation, subject to the necessary planning consents. There is also additional off-street parking to the front of the garage.
