The Property Partnership are delighted to offer this truly impressive and classically proportioned four-bedroomed, two reception roomed apartment with direct access to a large peaceful, mature garden adjacent to Richmond Bridge.
Located on the west bank of the Thames at the foot of London's oldest river crossing, this endearing first-floor apartment offers classically proportioned naturally brightly lit rooms with elaborately detailed high ceilings and perfectly restored period features including, not one, but six beautifully maintained original fireplaces.
Accessed via a sunlight-filled grand entrance hall, the property provides 1620 sqft of lateral living space centred around a large dining hall, a stunning bay windowed reception room, three large double bedrooms with ensuite to the principal bedroom and a further single bedroom/study. The kitchen/ breakfast room overlooks the garden and views across the river to the site of the original Royal Palace through a pair of huge sash windows. Stairs lead down into the well-stocked and beautifully kept communal garden with a lockable bicycle store and direct access to the Thames riverside walk. Cambridge Gardens is accessible from the front of the building which includes tennis courts, a playground ground and a café- very popular with local families in the know and a great place to enjoy the riverside whilst avoiding the hustle and bustle of the livelier Richmond crowd.
Built in 1901 Balmoral Mansions is one of seven elaborate Edwardian buildings located on the boundary of the former and magnificent Cambridge House, creating high quality homes for discerning Edwardian families keen to enjoy the fresh air and greenery of what is still, London's greenest borough, now considered landmark buildings and the embodiment of the splendours and glamourous lifestyles of Richmond's Edwardian era. Enticed by the magnificence of Turner's Painting of the Thames from Richmond Hill, the west side of Richmond Bridge became home to some of Europe's leading families.
Nowadays, blessed with a wonderful sense of community, the area plays host to some excellent schools in both the private and state sector and offers incredible leisure and outdoor facilities. Just over the bridge, historic Richmond is a hub for shopping and socialising, and contains a great number of chain stores, bars and restaurants, in addition to many treasured independents tucked away in its pretty Georgian lanes. Add to this excellent transport links (30% of locals don't own a car), a thriving sports and cultural scene served by two theatres, galleries, cinemas and numerous local societies and sports clubs, and you truly have a riverside town for all seasons.
