Double fronted unmodernised house enviably situated overlooking the river.
The Tides is a Grade II double fronted house located on this prime stretch of River with wonderful open views occupying one of the most beautiful and tranquil positions along the River Thames.
Only 6 miles from Mayfair yet this house evokes the feeling of a get-way seafront house', with its elevated ground floor, high ceilings, and large windows facing south east over the river and open landscape of Barnes beyond. To be so close to central London and yet have such an outlook is exceptional.
The house was built in 1885 by John Belcher for J. Thorneycroft, the famous shipbuilder who owned a few residences along Chiswick Mall, in what was then the start of the modern movement of arts and crafts architecture. The design would have seemed radical in the day with its panoramic windows, tile hung facade and balcony. Chiswick Mall has through the centuries always been a home to both dignitaries and artists.
The house requires complete modernisation and possible reconfiguration (subject to Listed Building Approvals) and offers huge potential for the new owner with approximately 3,500 sq ft of accommodation in a lateral layout working for a couple or a family.
The double fronted facade is raised above the front garden with its off street car parking space, just across the Mall is a further private riverside garden directly fronting the river.
Its rear garden is private, enclosed by brick walls and with an amazingly green outlook beyond. The views front and back create a great sense of openness, sky and foliage unusual for London.
