An elegant 5/6 bedroom Victorian family residence, perfectly positioned on the highly desirable 'The Avenue', in Kew, Richmond.
There is a lot to love about this property; its architecture, proportions and detailing. It was built to be admired and demands the same today.
This exquisite, redbrick, semi-detached house has a delightful front garden with a charming, spindled period porch. The original wide-panelled front door has detailed lead work and stained glass windows in an original design.
An impressive hallway, with its original centrepiece ceiling rose, typical of the era, welcomes one in to this exceptional house, and leads to a resplendent, formal reception room where one is greeted by an array of original features: a period tiled fireplace; original wood flooring; ornate, layered coving and a magnificent bay window.
A second reception room, at the heart of the house, has an abundance of original detail and leads to a spectacularly versatile kitchen/conservatory, ideal for entertaining, complete with French range cooker by Lacanche. The limestone flooring in the kitchen continues throughout the hallway. The ground floor also contains a very useful cloakroom and separate W.C.
French doors lead onto an alluring garden with a Scandinavian summerhouse and a potting shed.
The cellar contains a utility room, housing the boiler and Megaflow hot water system, and two further rooms, one of which is currently used as a gymnasium with a natural light well.
On the first floor, to the front of the property, the master bedroom has a picturesque bay window and an opulent ensuite with wet room and a separate bath. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor and a family bathroom with walk-in shower and separate bath.
The 3rd floor contains two double bedrooms, a single/study room and a further bathroom. There are 2 large loft spaces which have been fully boarded for functional, flexible storage.
Kew has its own distinctive, unrivalled identity which charms residents and visitors alike.

Kew has a strong sense of community as demonstrated by the hugely popular local events. Kew village market is held monthly and, in summer, Kew Green hosts the Kew Village Fete and cricket.
Kew is the perfect place for buyers looking for an idyllic environment to bring up a family, with exceptional schooling options in both the private and state sector. Another bonus is Kews' exceptional transport links with both overground and underground lines running from the centrally located Kew Gardens station, the close proximity of the M3 and M4, and the A4 providing easy access to central London.
Kew is a sought after, affluent area in south west London. Its village charm...
