The Property Partnership are pleased to offer this beautifully light and expansive four double bedroom family home, located on an idyllic tree-lined cul-de-sac, just the shortest of strolls from the river Thames, Barnes village and Barnes Bridge mainline station.
Approached via a pretty front garden, this gorgeous family house is characterised by wonderful ceiling heights throughout, with the ground floor enjoying underfloor heating and comprising a spacious entrance hall, an elegant wooden-floored double reception with original cornicing and large fireplace, a WC, and a fabulous open-plan kitchen-diner with French doors leading out to a rear garden extending to nearly sixty feet. The ground floor also provides access to a useful cellar. The first floor offers a stunning primary suite including a large double bedroom, dressing area, walk-in wardrobe/office and an adjoining bathroom with freestanding bath and separate shower/steam room. There is also a second double bedroom on this floor, enjoying ample built-in storage and en-suite bathroom. The second floor provides a vast bedroom with built-in cupboards and adjoining bathroom, which could either be divided into two rooms or enjoyed as is with a sitting room and desk area. There is a further double bedroom suite on this floor, completing the accommodation.
This is a most attractive family home, perfectly situated from which to enjoy life in Barnes village, with its riverside pubs and restaurants, duck pond and regular farmers market. Elm Bank Gardens is a coveted enclave of predominantly character houses, known locally for the strength of its community. It contains St. Michael's church and church hall, the latter home to a nursery/pre-school and the scene of many a local fete and gathering. Barnes Bridge mainline station is accessed via The Terrace just a few minutes walk away, with both the independent shops and restaurants of White Hart Lane and boutiques of Barnes village easily accessible on foot. The White Hart makes for an excellent local, with its terrace the ideal vantage point from which to enjoy the home strait of the Boat Race. Rick Stein's first London venture also overlooks the river from Tideway Yard.
Geographically contained by the river on three sides and by Barnes Common to the south, leafy Barnes retains a decidedly countrified air and is known for the strength of its schools including St. Paul's and the Harrodian. At the heart of the village lies Barnes Pond and Green, and an attractive High Street lined with many independent restaurants, pubs and shops. The areas proximity to open spaces, including the Wetlands Centre and Richmond Park, make Barnes and its near neighbour Mortlake the ideal home for those wishing to combine swift access to London with the qualities of village life. Barnes maintains a cornucopia of local clubs and societies and has benefitted from significant investment in recent years, not least the renovation of the old Olympic Studios on Church Road to create a fabulous cinema, The Olympic.
