This is a rare opportunity to acquire this imposing family home. Believed to have been built in the 1860s, this elegant, beautifully presented, six bedroom property, retains many period features such as ornate cornices, marble fireplaces and large sash windows with original shutters. The walled front garden, with spear-head railings, and stone front steps create an impressive approach. The entrance hall is wide and inviting, providing access to two spacious, interconnecting, reception rooms. With direct access to the garden, via a cast-iron balcony, this is a perfect space for entertaining.
The lower ground floor, with separate side entrance, has a lovely dining/family room to the front, next to the kitchen with back door onto a terrace and the large garden. This floor also has a utility room, cloakroom and walk-in storage cupboard. The first floor, reached by a wide staircase, comprises the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and the second bedroom with en-suite shower room, both with fitted wardrobes. The second floor comprises a further three double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The property also has a double garage and workshop. Above the garage, with access from the main house and with its own private front door, is a self contained studio apartment, comprising double bedroom, shower room, study/office and living room/kitchenette; perfect for those with an elderly relative, a live-in au-pair or for a home-based business. The delightful 130ft rear garden is well stocked and beautifully laid out with sitting areas, lawns, shrubs, flower and vegetable beds. There is a large garden room and pergola. The house backs onto Shrewsbury House prep school.
Just over a mile from Surbiton station (Waterloo 17 minutes) in the Southborough conservation area, this is an ideal location for commuters. It is also conveniently located for access to Kingston town centre with its array of shops, theatre and transport links. Frequent buses stop at the end of the road and the A3, M3, M25 (and, consequently, Heathrow and Gatwick) are easily reachable. Surbiton and Kingston are renowned for their excellent schools - a great location for families.
