A magnificent detached Edwardian family home of excellent proportions, in a semi rural location.
The Gables is an exquisite double fronted detached Edwardian family home with truly stunning views over the much acclaimed Lake Grounds of the St Margarets Pleasure Gardens (also known as the Trust Grounds) and close to a particularly scenic stretch of The River Thames. This expansive vista provides a real sense of being in a 'country house in London'.
The dramatic entrance hall and proportions throughout are simply magnificent and further emphasised by their gracious ceiling heights. Other features of note include the wonderfully lateral configuration of the accommodation and the superb natural light that the generous windows and beautiful open aspects afford. The house has been lovingly nurtured by our clients and has excellent period integrity, yet allows great scope for further enhancement. Of particular note is the lavish principle suite encompassing the entire top floor.
Occupying an impressive plot that extends to 40 metres in depth and almost 30 meters in width (considerably wider than the vast majority of properties within The Grounds) there is a delightful, well established, rear garden that is predominantly laid to lawn and gives directly onto the Lake Grounds behind. The house is set behind a front garden with a gravel drive to the side providing off street parking for several cars.
The Pleasure Gardens are made up of three grounds (The River Grounds, The Lake Grounds and the Avenue Grounds) that total around 12 acres, for the exclusive use of its residents. All three grounds feature a seasonal tennis court and there is a fabulous social side to them with annual events such as a children's sports day, a sixties night, a bonfire night, carol singing, a barn dance and a jazz picnic.
