The house is well situated along this pretty stretch of the high Street that features other notable period properties. It is within just a few hundred yards of Bushy Park - with its wonderful deer inhabited acres providing an ideal retreat from the hubbub of daily life. Yet similarly close at hand the local shops of Hampton and Hampton Hill offer excellent convenience, as well as a charming village atmosphere and a great selection of restaurants. Hampton Court and Teddington can be found just the other side of Bushy Park and also have a wide and sophisticated array of shops and eateries, as well as historic Hampton Court Palace - which abuts a particularly scenic stretch of The River Thames.
Hampton station provides a direct train service into London Waterloo and the A316 can also be accessed at Hampton, which adjoins the M3 at Sunbury or central London in the other direction, via the A4. The M3 in turn adjoins the M25, thereby offering excellent links to both Heathrow and Gatwick airports.
Local schools enjoy a superb reputation and are considered to be amongst the best in the country.
Recently returned to its former glory as a single family dwelling and dating from the second half of the 17th Century Grove House is an architecturally exquisite Grade II* listed detached home that is laterally configured over just three floors, providing equally well for both family life and more formal entertaining. The striking facade boasts beautifully regimented fenestration and a distinctive entrance porch featuring two stone eagles. Internally this period integrity is also apparent throughout, with a number of notable features - including panelled walls, several fireplaces and operational box window shutters - that are further complimented by the excellent natural light, magnificent room proportions and generous ceiling heights.
Rooms of particular note include the stunning drawing room that overlooks the garden, the lovely bespoke kitchen, an impressive cinema room and the fabulous reception hallway with a most elegant turning oak staircase. But perhaps of most significance is the wonderfully ornate and richly decorated music room, built in the style of The Alhambra in Spain and added at the end of the 19th Century. The six bedrooms upstairs are well served by five superbly appointed bathrooms.
The restoration has been carried out with much thought, sympathy to its period and attention to detail, seamlessly combining period charm with modern technology such as CAT 6 wiring.
Occupying a generous plot the house has a deep walled front garden, setting it well back from the road and providing extensive gated parking, in addition to the detached double garage. Whilst to the rear of the property there is a beautifully landscaped garden that is mainly laid to lawn.
Square Footage: 6,760 sq ft
