Surrounded by acres of parkland is this historic five floor, four bedroom listed building with 185 metres of mooring for up to 25 boats and parking for up to 20 cars.
The Chalet has 360-degree view landscaped gardens surrounding the property, the building previously sat freely on the ground but planning permission was obtained in 2014 to lift from the flood plain and is now secured for centuries to come. The pathway around the property follows the way the land lies and is designed therefore uneven and curved.
Upon entering the property, you are met by an oriental lush garden with grated metal flooring which below holds natural water and Koi Carp. You then cross an oriental bridge with its handrails designed in the shape of samurai swords. You enter the rest of the home, with an impressive collection of Italian bespoke made glass lights hanging to your right in the shape of clouds floating over the landscape. This mirrors the connection with nature again. To your right you descend stairs which takes you to the lower ground family or party room floor.
The Beach, there you can find a large performing stage, plenty of sitting areas or if you prefer on the 40 tons of warm sandy beach, pool table and games, or merely stay by the bar to enjoy a fruity cocktail whilst counting the collections of wine on the cellar racks. Behind the bar a secret door leads you into the cinema room before you pass through an old submarine door to the leisure Roman bath and spa areas and therapy room. The spa facilities include a gym, sauna and steam room and second outdoor pool.
On the first floor you find a remarkable out of the ordinary conceptuality designed Italian kitchen. Through double doors you reach a very large dining area which can be open plan or closed off with Swarovski crystal clear glass automated doors. A living wall divides the kitchen from the dining room, surround sound system throughout the whole property and a state of the art bespoke kitchen including extra-large five famous Gaggenau fridges. The entire kitchen (double ovens, microwaves, grills, steam ovens etc) appliances are all Gaggenau.
To the second floor, there is a library which is carpeted throughout with a crystal chandelier, this is designed in a much older period style in comparison to the rest of the property and has strong Victorian influences throughout. There is also the first guest bedroom on this floor, designed as a French boudoir, it has very romantic interiors, Victorian influences and a guest en-suite. There is also a laundry room on this floor to service the guest bedrooms. Two further guest rooms can be found on this floor, both mirroring each other and with en-suites. The magnificent Hampton Court Palace is a few minutes walk from The Chalet. Renowned for being Henry VIII's favourite Royal residence, the palace was built circa1514 for Henry VIII and completed later by Christopher Wren, the same
architect of St. Paul's Cathedral. The Palace has not been inhabited by the British Royal Family since the 18th century but remains a national landmark and a celebrated part of Great Britain's history.
Around the Hampton Court Palace lies the second largest Royal Park in London, Bushy Park. The park which cover the entire stretch of the Hampton Riviera and Chalet Estate, has a very distinctive landscape with an incredible variation
of wildlife and habitats within its walls. Shaped mostly by its history as a Royal hunting ground it has a very unique landscape, there are also various ponds and streams that can also be enjoyed. One of the main attractions that Bushy
Park possess are the Deer that roam throughout the park both the Red and Fallow variety of Deer can be seen, just as they did when King Henry VIII used to hunt there.
With so many gastronomic delights on offer in the nearby town, everything is available to enjoy from the fresh local produce including the local butchers, bakeries and markets on to some wonderful and welcoming restaurants, bars
Located just 35 minutes from waterloo by train and good access via road. This is truly a rare "one-off" property that would make a fabulous weekend retreat for the discerning few.
