A charming 1920s 'Shell' cottage, nestled away on the highly sought after 'Grove Estate' in Teddington.
This pretty and utterly charming double fronted 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, louvered shutters, porch canopies and plain tile roofs. They were built on individual garden plots but with a distinctive continuous front garden, landscaped to the street and edged by original posts and chains.
The property, whilst in need of modernising, has been lovingly cared for by the current owner retaining and enhancing many original period features, including oversized wooden doors with latches, ceiling beam, external wooden shutters, parquet flooring, refurbished original sash windows and wooden front door to name but a few.
On entering the property, the spacious hallway with its original tiled flooring gives access into two separate dual aspect living/dining rooms with original features, large windows, feature fireplaces and access to the rear garden. The kitchen although in need of modernisation, is generously proportioned and provides ample eye and base level units, integrated appliances, space for a breakfast table and a large utility room. Downstairs also benefits from a W.C.
Moving to the first floor, you find a bright, open landing space leading to the four double bedrooms, three of which benefit from dual aspect windows. To the first floor there is also a family bathroom and ample storage space, including an airing cupboard and loft.
Externally, the large rear garden provides a place of sanctuary, with mature trees providing privacy and seclusion. You will find a fig tree, apple tree, horse chestnut tree and a pergola with vine and wisteria. There is also a small pond within the garden.
To the side of the property, there is gated access, along with a garage and a workshop, both complete with electricity. To the front, the garden is well kept with a lavender hedge, off street parking and an additional opportunity to create an extra parking space on the area directly opposite, which forms part of the property.
The property is ideally situated close to Teddington High Street and Teddington Lock with easy transport links. Bushy Park and Hampton Court are also easily accessible. The property is well placed for the excellent local and private school catchments. EPC Rating E.
