7 bedroom house for sale
St. Mary's Grove, Barnes, SW13
You could be excused for thinking you are in a boutique hotel, so chic and comfortable is the redesign of this Arts and Crafts house.
Having said that, any mother of small children would faint with delight at the perfection of the family friendly facilities. From the front of the house, all you can see is trees and the Common - you could easily be in countryside. In the garden is a swimming pool and all-weather playground for the children, and a great decking area and raised herb beds provide a perfect entertaining zone for the grown-ups. Inside, the ground floor is a symphony of style, with the glassed-in kitchen and dining room miraculously warm even on the coldest of days. Upstairs, the comfort continues, with a master bedroom suite to die for, and a children's floor that makes you want to rush out and have twins - if you could raise them here, of course.
Barnes has all the benefits of rural family living, including 22 acres of Common and a duck pond, but with metropolitan cool thrown in. It has a trendy vibe, with fantastic shops and restaurants, and a big cafe scene going on. Very popular with media and sporting types, many of whom have moved there from West London to raise their families, it has the added advantage of two of the best private schools in London in the area. St Paul's (arguably the best boys day school in country), and the Harrodian, are both alma maters of many a bien pensant's child. There is a National Rail link, into Clapham Junction and Waterloo, tube (District and Piccadilly lines) at Hammersmith only a bus ride over the bridge and the M3/M4 corridor is easily accessed.
