BEAUTIFULLY PRESENTED PERIOD FAMILY HOME IN A SOUGHT AFTER LOCATION
This elegant three storey Victorian Villa is situated in the highly sought after Kent Town conservation area of East Molesey, an area rich in history and indeed close to the world famous royal palace at Hampton Court. Pretty residential roads, good transport links and quality schooling make this area very popular with families.
The Bridge Road area of East Molesey (also known locally as Hampton Court Village) lies just around the corner from Walnut Tree House and is a traditional style British village with a range of independent shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants. More extensive shopping is accessible in nearby Kingston-upon-Thames.
Transport links in the area are excellent. The M4, M3 and M25 motorways are within easy driving distance and central London itself is just 12.5 miles away. A regular rail service to London Waterloo operates from Hampton Court Station and Kingston Station, with journey times from around 30 minutes.
The property is well situated for a range of excellent state and independent schools, including Kingston Grammar School, Hampton School and Lady Eleanor Holles School. The ACS International School in Cobham is 5.5 miles away.
Walnut Tree House was originally built in 1868 for a family doctor, by Wheatley's, a long established East Molesey family owned construction firm. A fine period property, partly bounded by a historic Tudor wall, Walnut Tree House offers spacious and well presented accommodation, ideally arranged for contemporary family living, whilst retaining many beautiful original Victorian features.
On the ground floor, the welcoming entrance hall, with smart oak flooring, leads to the charming sitting room/snug, with front aspect and wood burning stove and to the formal drawing room, a bright double aspect elegant reception, with feature fireplace and glazed French doors leading out to the rear gardens.
From the drawing room, double doors open into an impressive bespoke designed conservatory, added to the property by the current owners in 1995. With triple glazing, automated ventilation, under floor heating and an automatic irrigation system, this charming space is beautifully appointed as a conservatory/dining room or a general relaxation area, with views over and direct access to the rear gardens. At the end of the entrance hall lies the kitchen/breakfast room, with a range of base and wall mounted cabinets, spacious work surfaces and plenty of space for informal dining. There is a useful adjacent utility room and cloakroom and stairs lead from this area down to a basement wine cellar/storage area.
On the first floor, the generously proportioned master bedroom enjoys views both to the front and rear of the house. Furnished with a range of fitted wardrobes, it also benefits from an en suite shower room. There are two further double bedrooms on this floor (one currently adapted as a study, with fitted furniture) and these are served by the large family bathroom and separate WC. On the second floor, three more bedrooms, with a range of lovely period features, share the use of a further large shower room.
Externally, the property is approached to the front by a gated paved driveway which provides ample guest parking space as well as access to the integrated garage. To the rear of the house lie beautifully maintained south facing mature gardens, with a range of attractive flower beds, vegetable and herb gardens, trees and shrubs. There is a paved terrace across the back of the house leading to the heated swimming pool and lawns beyond, as well as a garde n shed and small summer house.
The property currently has planning permission in place for planning permission to build a 2nd floor over the garage and conversion of some/all of the double garage space to living space. Planning is also in place for a rear extension across the whole width of the property, adding to sitting room & replacing the conservatory with "freeflow" kitchen/breakfast room/family room contemporary living area.
