Building of Local Heritage & Architectural Interest
Retains Numerous Period Features
Central Teddington Location
Moments from High St Shops & Station
A rare opportunity to acquire Peg Woffington Cottage, one of Teddington’s most historically interesting properties. Originally built in 1759 and owned by the renowned actress of the time, it is thought that the cottage was Peg Woffington’s country retreat, and later became Alms houses for the local parish at the behest of the actress. Later in the 20th Century, 167 High Street, Teddington became the Peg Woffington Tea Rooms which traded successfully until its closure around 2004. Instantly recognisable and positioned at the bottom of the High Street, opposite Langham Road, this charming Grade II listed cottage would make an ideal project and still retains some wonderful period features.
As you enter the house you are greeted by a bright reception room to the right and a separate dining room on the left-hand side. There are two kitchen rooms and a bathroom to the rear of the building and access to the rear garden. On the first floor, there are two double bedrooms and a further two bedrooms on the second floor. At almost 1500 sq. ft. there is plenty of space to make alterations to the layout and create a charming family home. The rear garden is secluded and has the potential to be the perfect place for entertaining during the summer months.
Close by there are many boutique shops, restaurants, and the amenities of Teddington and Twickenham, including Royal Bushy Park and The prestigious Lensbury Club. Locally there are excellent transport links, with Teddington train station offering direct access to London Waterloo and regular buses into both Kingston and Richmond town centres. Schools are sought after in the area and this property is within proximity to some of the area’s finest education facilities.
