Behind the unassuming exterior of this Hampton Wick house hide 4,500sq ft of living space and a private garden.
With some 4,500sq ft of living space, seven bedrooms and a setting opposite the green grass of Bushy Park, you’d be forgiven for thinking this property on Park Road, for sale through Jackson-Stops at £2.995 million, is anywhere other than inside the M25.
Much like a Tardis, it’s hard to judge the scale of the home from behind its unassuming brown-brick façade, but Park Road offers all the space a large family living in London could ever desire.
The house, which dates from the early 19th century, is set around an open plan atrium-cum-living room, the glass roof of which naturally offers an abundance of light directly to the heart of the property.
Beyond it is a quiet reception room with a beautiful fireplace. Upstairs are four bedrooms and a bathroom with observation tower.
Adjacent to the main house is accommodation that could be used independently if required: it includes a kitchen, garage and three bedrooms.
Outside, Bushy Park offers all the space to run around that could ever be desired, but the property also comes with its own small back garden for privacy and to entertain guests.
Sympathetically modernised in recent years, Park Road has the comforts of the countryside, although situated within the borough of Richmond and its many amenities.
