A handsome, four double bedroom Victorian Villa located on a popular road in Teddington and benefitting from a south facing garden…
Offered to the market is this four bedroom, semi-detached Victorian villa of immense charm and character. The current owners have lovingly restored and thoughtfully extended the property over the last 14 years, with an emphases placed on the retention of period detailing where possible, whilst creating a stylish family home conducive to modern family living. The internal space has been cleverly reconfigured to make the best use of available space, which is most noticeable to the ground floor in particular.
The welcoming entrance hall immediately sets the tone of the quality decorative finish throughout, together with numerous beautifully restored period features. These include excellent ceiling heights with plaster moulded cornicing, stripped paneled doors, and a lovely curved wall. It should be noted that the main living room provides an imposing working fireplace and broad bay window, whilst all first floor bedrooms enjoy their own individual cast iron fireplaces, perfectly in keeping with the age of the house. Other noticeable features are the lovely radiator covers, beautiful ‘Little Green’ wall paint, double glazed wood sash windows - mostly fitted with plantation shutters, and the solid oak flooring.
An impressive utility room is located to the centre of the house, which is fully kitted out with copious storage and suspended drying rail - perfect for busy family life. The downstairs hallway also encompasses a useful W.C. and a cleverly concealed pull-out shoe cupboard under the stairs. The rear kitchen/diner has had a full width extension done, to create a large, natural light filled space. A bespoke Northpoint kitchen is fitted with composite stone worktops and includes a smart island unit and matching larder store to the left flank wall. The kitchen also offers a large double fridge and freezer, Amtico flooring with underfloor heating, a Falcon stove with a 6 ring hob and spotlights to the ceiling. This room benefits from two skylight windows and the great expanse of glass within the tri-fold doors, which successfully creates that "in/out" relationship with the south facing garden - ideal for large family gatherings and parties.
The first floor comprises three double bedrooms, featuring built in storage, high ceilings, sash windows and original fireplaces. A family bathroom can also be found on the first floor, complete with a Heritage three piece suite. To the top floor, a large master suite has been tastefully decorated and designed to allow maximum natural light by way of a Juliette balcony and a skylight. The en-suite boasts a walk in shower with a large, integrated shower head, low lighting and a vanity sink. There are built in wardrobes to the master suite, along with ample eaves storage.
Externally, the south facing garden is tastefully landscaped, the rear garden with patio is mainly laid with 'easy care' lawn for ease of ongoing maintenance. There is power, water and useful side access. The front garden is adorned with seasonal “Trumpet Lillies”.
Princes Road is a wide "tree-lined" road in west Teddington whereby the architecture is predominantly of period style.
