Rarely available, superior, five bedroom, Edwardian detached family home in a highly sought after central Teddington tree-lined avenue, with off street parking, minutes from Teddington station, High Street and Collis Primary School and naturally configured over three floors and extending to approximately 3000 sq. ft.
This much loved superior detached house, built in the early 1900's, has brought the current owners so much happiness since it was acquired over 40 years ago. It now provides an opportunity to make a wonderful home for a new family, hopefully for many years to come.
As you enter the house through the attractive stained glass front door and window, the immediate impression is a feeling of space and character as the grand receiving hall boasts fine stairway balustrading, with an attractive newel post and banister with wood panelling under and useful cloak recess. Stunning period features flow through the entire house, including almost 3 metre high ceilings, ornate cornicing, deep pictures rails and sash windows, the property is flooded with an enormous amount of natural light from every aspect.
To the fore, the spacious formal front reception room is complemented with a stunning deep round bay window, majestic high ceilings with elegant coving, deep picture rail, gas fire and shelving to the chimney recess.
To the rear an open plan Kitchen/Family/Dining room spans the width of the house and overlooks the garden through French doors and two sash windows. The kitchen features ample cupboards at eye and base level with space for dishwasher, fridge, oven and microwave. Accessed from the kitchen and hallway is a good size utility room with cupboards and space for washing machine, tumble dryer and freezer. The ground floor also benefits from a downstairs W.C. and a large cellar accessed from the utility room with fantastic head height and an original coal hole.
To the first floor the spacious landing gives access to four double bedrooms, two of which are impressive in size giving potential for two master bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes, high ceilings, picture rail, coving and double glazed sash windows overlooking the garden or enormous window to the fore. All complemented by a main family bathroom, with a shower over the bath and an additional separate W.C.
The natural third floor leads to another sizeable landing, leading to a generous double bedroom with wooden panelling, dual aspect with a wide window overlooking the garden, vanity sink and full size doors providing access to vast eaves storage space
The property boasts a fabulous 85 ft beautiful, mature, west facing rear garden (enjoying all afternoon and evening sunlight) with a patio area immediately out of the french doors, perfect for alfresco dining, tastefully planted with side borders, a well maintained verdant central lawn leading down to a garden shed with space for a larger building (subject to planning) and side access. The fore garden is also well stocked and landscaped with off-road parking for one car, which could be reconfigured to take two - a valuable option to have.
This wonderful house would lend itself perfectly for a substantial extension across the rear and there is considerable scope available to develop the roof space further, for anyone wishing to add further living space.
Properties of this size and with such scope to create your perfect family home are rare and with a garden to complement, early viewings are advised by the vendors sole agents.
Location: Set amongst similar substantial character properties in a quiet tree-lined road ideally placed within a short stroll of Teddington's station and boutique High Street, with its many eateries and independent retailers. Bushy Park, the river Thames, historic Teddington Lock and the Lensbury Club are all within easy walking distance. The well-respected Collis Primary School is a mere amble, and by car the A316 a short drive providing swift access to the M3, M25, Heathrow and the city centre.
