Magnificent Grade II listed Georgian double fronted family house in this exceptional setting on the River Thames.
Originally, Beach House was a boat house directly on the river's edge before the tow path was built. The boat house eventually became part of the basement of the existing home. The remainder of the house was built circa 1760, with its wonderful Georgian period features. Externally very little has changed since the house was built, as demonstrated in a wonderful illustration in the Madeline series of children's books (Madeline in London by Ludwig Bemelmans published 1961). The interior of the house still maintains many original features, including floors, doors, fruitwood banisters, windows, and architraves, all lovingly restored. Beach House is especially elegant providing versatility with six bedrooms and impressive storage throughout. The house boasts well-proportioned entertaining space, including the incredible lateral full width first floor drawing room, leading onto the riverside room capturing stunning views over the Thames to the open spaces of St Paul's School and curvature of the tranquil meandering Thames.
The mature gardens at the rear of the house have been landscaped with a tropical influence creating two idyllic spaces, one tucked away for the children and another to enjoy peaceful alfresco entertaining with a hot tub nestled in the corner for added relaxation. Beyond the garden is a secure gated covered parking space located off Rutland Grove.
Beach House occupies an enchanting position overlooking the River Thames with views towards Hammersmith Bridge, London's oldest suspension bridge, and across the river. To the front of the house, there is the walkway of Lower Mall on the banks of the river and here is the rare offering of a private river pier allowing a boat to be moored to enjoy the river life in style.
