    About this property

    • Originally constructed in the 1900s as part of Messon's brickyard, this two-bedroom residence is discreetly nestled on Grosvenor Road in Twickenham. Meticulously reimagined by the current owners, the house now features a remarkable, spacious layout spread across the ground and lower-ground floors. The architectural integrity and charm of the property are accentuated by a thoughtfully chosen contemporary colour palette, incorporating steel ironmongery, exposed concrete, and oak-veneered ply. This harmonious blend pays homage to the industrial aesthetics of two different eras. The property's sale also includes a designated parking space and access to a convenient bike shed. The heart of Twickenham, along with various green spaces and scenic riverside walks, is in close proximity.

      The residence is accessed via a cobblestone path branching off Grosvenor Road. A black wooden fence defines the front garden, and a brief set of steps leads to the entrance. Upon entering, you find yourself in a well-lit hallway that provides a view of an impressive double-height central space within the house. Here, new steel beams and balustrades seamlessly connect with restored pitch pine joists and brick walls. Floor-to-ceiling Crittall-style windows stretch across two floors, allowing natural light to permeate deep into the area. Towards the rear of the ground floor lies the living room, featuring a discreet wall of storage cleverly concealed behind a set of beautiful reclaimed mahogany doors. Additionally, a concealed storage room for coats and shoes occupies a corner of the space.

      A spiral staircase crafted from steel and featuring Iroko treads gracefully descends to the lower floor, revealing the most contemporary section of the house. Here, an open-plan layout encompasses the kitchen, sitting area, and dining space. French doors lead to a serene patio ingeniously carved from an existing coal chute. Positioned behind the mezzanine, the kitchen takes on an L-shaped configuration, boasting oak ply cabinetry supporting a Corian worktop and integrated Smeg appliances. Open shelving not only adds functionality but also serves as a stylish display. A spacious utility room is conveniently situated in the adjoining space. Towards the rear of the layout, a versatile room features built-in oak ply shelving. The polished concrete floor, equipped with underfloor heating, harmonises with the prefabricated concrete panels on the walls.

      The primary bedroom with an en suite is situated on the first floor. The original pine floors have been meticulously sanded to complement the exposed pitch pine ceilings, infusing the space with warmth and character. Illuminated by a generous window, the room features a built-in wardrobe along one wall. A pocket door leads to a dual-aspect area next to the stairs, currently utilized as a study. This space connects to a balcony accessible through the glazed double doors of the original loading bay.

      On the second floor, a new steel structure supports the vaulted timber roof, creating an expansive area currently serving as a children's bedroom and playroom. Two Velux skylights draw natural light from above, fostering a tranquil atmosphere at the building's summit. Another set of loading bay doors opens to a second balcony.

      Throughout the property, three bathrooms are distributed across different floors, each tastefully finished with handmade ceramic tiles and unlacquered fixtures by Barber Wilsons & Co. The en suite and lower-ground floor bathroom feature walk-in showers, while the top-floor bathroom is equipped with a bathtub.

      A front patio, surrounded by a black fence, stretches outward from the house and can be opened to double as a parking space. Offering abundant space for outdoor furniture, this area is an ideal retreat for relaxation. Descending a set of steps leads to another patio directly connected to the living space. Two balconies extend from the first and second floors, gracefully cantilevering and providing picturesque views.
