A rare opportunity to purchase a carefully renovated lateral apartment occupying the ground floor of "Suthrey House" situated on the bank of the Thames
A rare opportunity to purchase a carefully renovated lateral apartment occupying the ground floor of Suthrey House situated on the banks of the Thames.
The Grade II listed Suthrey House built in 1619 is most well-known for being home to the world famous Mortlake Tapestry Works, whose masterpieces can be found in palaces around the world. Throughout the renovation, the history and integrity of the building has been sympathetically blended with modern finishes empathising the handsome Georgian features.
This wonderful home is accessed by electric gates allowing off-street parking for several cars. Beyond is a substantial 89 x 78 foot walled garden, believed to have the largest private river frontage in Mortlake with charming views toward Barnes Bridge.
The entrance hall provides access to a cloak room and separate utility room. Leading through, the generous kitchen/dining room has been tastefully fitted with a range of modern appliances, including a range cooker, ample storage and glass trap door down to a wine cellar. Both located at the rear of the house, the kitchen and reception room benefit from large Georgian windows (with working original shutters) overlooking the garden allowing for an abundance of natural light. The principal reception room is presented with high ceilings and a wood burning fire.
The property offers versatile living accommodation and is currently presented with a large principal en suite bedroom offering plentiful storage and two further bedrooms served by two bathrooms. One of the bedrooms lending itself to be a separate annex with its own private entrance with a separate reception space.
The cellar can be accessed either by the front door or via the staircase in the kitchen. It is currently used for storage, a small gym and a wine cellar. Covering nearly 600 sq ft, the area has potential to be converted to additional accommodation, subject to usual planning and listed buildings requirements.
The property is situated within a short walk of East Sheen and Barnes Village which offer an eclectic range of shops, restaurants and riverside pubs. For those who commute Barnes Bridge and Mortlake stations offer a service into Waterloo.
There are excellent recreational facilities in the area comprising, riding and walking in Richmond Park, riverside walks along the Thames towpath and polo at Ham. For those who enjoy sports there is The Chiswick Riverside Health Club, Roko and The Roehampton Club boasting the closest 18 hole golf course to Central London.
The famous Oxford and Cambridge boat race which is held each year travels past the house and completes its course just by Chiswick Bridge.
