The ground floor accommodation continues with a connecting rear lobby and pleasant sitting and reading area with a fireplace and a second set of stairs to the first floor and opening onto a recently refurbished breakfasting kitchen with bespoke fitted units and boasting an Aga as well as a variety of appliances and open plan breakfast/dining area with doors leading to the gardens. Finally, the ground floor also consists of an office with fitted cabinets and shelves, side lobby/boot room, washroom/utility, laundry room, W.C., cloakroom and stairs leading to the cellar.

Externally the property occupies a large plot, boasting a triple garage with electric power doors and luxurious annex/studio apartment above complete with open-plan fitted kitchen and ensuite shower room - an ideal office, studio or guest suite for friends and relatives. The property also benefits from private, mature and well-kept gardens with sunny aspect and terrace located from the indoor swimming pool, two patio and lawn areas, mature trees and shrubs.

All in all, a most impressive and desirable property set in a wonderful location.

The famous Royal Parks, Richmond and Bushy Park as well as Hampton Court Palace are close by, as is the River Thames and good transport links to London Waterloo from Norbiton.
