Rarely available three double bedroom, 2 reception room, detached house, the property was featured on the TV programme ‘£100k House: Tricks of the Trade’ in 2016 Presented by renowned British architect Piers Taylor. When its owners were featured in the programme and filmed as the house was converted using top architects and designers to re-configure their standard 3-bedroom house into a living space for 2 adults and 5 children age between 5-14, with everyone having their own bedroom and study space and a functional living area.
The property is located on one of the area’s best residential roads just a short 10-minute walk to Kingston Train Station and town centre and importantly close to some of the very best North Kingston Schools. The Ground floor has been fully extended to maximise the available internal space and has been transformed into a large open plan entrance hall, which flows into the heart of the house which is the family living space with dining area and extra-large kitchen, with free standing appliances and plenty of worktop area and storage units, a breakfast bar overlooking the patio and bi-fold doors leading to the rear terrace. To the rear of the kitchen is a separate room that can either be used as a home office or utility room and ground floor shower room and WC. Finally, there is a separate, bright, front reception room giving a quiet space from the hubbub of the family area.
The first floor was significantly reconfigured from its traditional 3 bedrooms during the TV programme and rather than completing a loft extension (due to cost) the bedroom ceilings were removed and the roof was fully insulated, the rooms where all fitted with mezzanine floors and steps allowing it to be divided into two bedrooms in each room. Additionally, a good-sized bathroom with shower over bath was fitted on the first floor.
This area can now be reconverted back to either a 3-bedroom standard layout with bathroom or the loft can be reinstated and then converted using either a piggyback extension or a standard double Dorma extension (STNC) to provide a master ensuite bedroom in this new space.
To the front of the house is a small private paved garden area with gate and original brick wall, and at the rear there is a private courtyard area, ideal for BBQ or outdoor entertaining.
The property is neutrally decorated throughout, with fabulous laminate flooring downstairs, newly fitted gradually rising staircase (a nice change to the usual steep staircase of these properties) and laminate and wood flooring upstairs and in the bedrooms, the windows are double glazed and the house has gas central heating.
Location: It is just a 10-minute walk to Kingston Train station with trains to Waterloo taking just 26 minutes or a 15-minute walk to central Kingston with its amazing shops, restaurants and bars or Richmond Park, Kingston Gate is just a 12-minute walk away with its amazing wildlife, walks and bike rides. Importantly for families it is close to some of the amazing North Kingston schools including, St Luke’s, Latchmere, St Agatha’s, Alexandra, Tiffin Girls and Boys, or Kingston Academy to name just a few. It is also conveniently located for the nearby Elm Park with it’s open green space and playground. By car it is close to the A3 which serves both London & the M25.
