    About this property

    • 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.

    Local information

    • Hammersmith, a unique suburb located in West London, is the perfect place to make your home. The area is brimming with the activity and opportunity typical of London, yet retaining a certain village charm.
    • Timelessly elegant Georgian architecture complements West London's beautiful stretch of Thames riverbank. The house is within a short walk of the two underground stations at Hammersmith which are served by the Piccadilly, Circle, District and Hammersmith & City Line. Some of London's finest day schools, including St Paul's, The Harrodian, and Latymer Prep School are equally close by as is Ecole Francaise Jacques Prevert on Brook Green.
    • Bars, restaurants and pavement cafes have sprung up all along the tow path including the famous River Cafe on the other side of the bridge and the new development at Riverside Studios which will provide a further choice of restaurants plus a cinema. Several supermarkets and an ever-expanding range of delis, boutiques and niche suppliers mean that residents rarely need to go elsewhere, however if Chelsea and Kensington beckons, it can be reached within a short journey.
