About this property
Guide Price £799,950 to £850,000. “We bought the house for its perfect location on such a quiet tree lined street close to the station.
We have loved restoring an old Victorian hulk into our perfect family home, first gutting and rebuilding from the inside and then lovingly refurbishing it while retaining a multitude of period features. From the restored wooden floorboards to the leaded-windows in the front door, we have tried to retain the character and patina of the house whilst making it a comfortable 21st century home.
We carefully selected the sash double -glazed windows that retain the period look whilst ensuring the house is cosy even in winter.
The focal point of our home lives is the made-to-measure kitchen organised around a breakfast bar with warm wooden worksurfaces, with a range cooker and wine fridge perfect for those family gatherings we will hopefully be able to have again soon.
The living room, just like the kitchen, is flooded by natural light from the side return extension, which offers direct access to the decking via French doors and in the winter provides a cosy place in front of the fireplace.
The garden has naturally been a boon in these unprecedented times, providing space to relax, barbecue or simply enjoy a coffee outdoors and offering ample opportunities for the children; lawn to kick a ball around, mature trees to climb or hang-up a hammock, and borders where we grow a mix of flowers, garden herbs, fruit trees and berries.
At the end of each day, we can enjoy the views over the secret park of gardens all the way to the silver shells of the Thames barrier in the distance from the Juliette balcony in our loft bedroom."
This is such an ideal family home, as the seller says! With extended living space, storage in the cellar, and four large bedrooms with two bathrooms, there is room to grow into.
