This house is one of only a very few and extremely sought after 'Dutch Barn' style homes located on the prestigious Cole Park Road in Twickenham . With wonderful architecture and kerb appeal , the gravelled driveway has space for multiple cars.
The House and Garden
Approached via a pretty frontage, the welcoming entrance hall is bright and airy with many original features and a stunning oak and glass staircase and leads to a large bay fronted drawing room with high ceilings, plantation shutters and working fireplace, and a large formal dining room with equally impressive dimensions and plantation shutters. To the rear of the house, overlooking the large south facing garden, is a stunning open plan kitchen/family room with bi-fold doors onto the patio. The adjoining utility room and studio/garage provide wonderful workspace and storage whilst a separate study is discreetly tucked away into the corner of the vast family room. An impressive staircase leads up to the first-floor bedrooms and bathrooms. The large principal suite comes complete with a luxurious en suite shower room , whilst three further bedrooms are well served by a beautifully presented family bathroom. The top floor provides an additional two double bedrooms, each with their own en-suite shower room, with the rear aspect enjoying garden views from the Juliet balcony. The garden offers seclusion and privacy and is mainly laid to lawn with bordering beds of plants and shrubs, with plentiful wildlife. The current owners love the relaxing sound of the crane river as it meanders by.
Cole Park Road is considered one of finest addresses in TW1, quiet, leafy and perfectly located for the amenities of both Twickenham town centre and St Margarets village. One of the key considerations for families moving into this desirable part of town is the proximity to a good state school and this property sits in the catchment for the highest rated primary and secondary schools. Stretching from historic Trust Grounds and pretty Marble Hill Park down to the idyllic Green with its cricket square and concentration of Victorian houses, Twickenham is laid-back community with a decidedly sporty feel. With a wonderful sense of community, this is a great location from which to enjoy all the local amenities, including beautiful York House Gardens and Marble Hill Park. The independent shops of Crown Road in St. Margaret's and Church Street in Twickenham provide the very best of local shopping and dining, with both located just the shortest of strolls away, as are two of south-west London's most famous riverside pubs, The White Swan and Barmy Arms. A visit to the Eel Pie Island Museum on Richmond Road provides the perfect insight into a local music scene that defines this incredibly sought after London suburb as the birthplace of British rock and roll - and, of course, it would be wrong of us not to mention it is the home of English rugby!
