A quite charming 1920s 'Shell' cottage, nestled away on the highly sought after 'Grove Estate' in Teddington, overlooking the beautiful Grove Gardens.
This pretty and utterly charming house is a fine example of the original and modest “Shell houses” which were constructed in the early 1920's and were designed in an attractive, continental cottage style of painted or unpainted brick with timber sash windows, louvred shutters, porch canopies and plain tile roofs. They were built on individual gardens plots but with a distinctive continuous front garden landscape to the street, edged by original posts and chains.
The property, whilst being beautifully maintained, has been lovingly restored by the current owner retaining and enhancing all of the original period features, including over size wooden doors with latches, ceiling beams, external wooden shutters, herring bone flooring, bespoke glass and wooden front doors to name but a few.
On entering the property, the spacious hallway with its dark red ceramic tiles gives access into the through double aspect living/dining room with original features, feature fireplace and access to the rear garden.
The fully fitted kitchen provides ample eye and base level units, integrated appliances, space for a breakfast table, stone tiled flooring and rear garden access.
Moving to the first floor you find the three double bedrooms, family bathroom, a separate WC and storage.
Externally, the large south-facing rear garden provides a place of sanctuary offering privacy and seclusion with a patio area ideal for entertaining. The garden benefits from a large garden room which is fully equipped and makes an ideal space as a studio or office.
There is side gated access to the front with driveway giving access to the garage.
To the front, the property faces the well treed central green space of Grove Gardens, complete with bowling green and cedar shingle clad pavilions.
The property is ideally situated close to Teddington High Street, Teddington Lock with easy transport links. Bushy Park and Hampton Court are also easily accessible, whilst The Grove is well placed for the excellent local and private school catchments.
