5 bedroom house for sale

Hampton Riviera, Hampton Court Road, East Molesey, KT8


Property Description

Full description

Surrounded by acres of parkland which are protected by English Heritage this historic five floor, four bedroom listed building is now owned by a passionate property designer, who has restored The Swiss Chalet and it's surrounding land back to its original splendour.

With 185 metres of mooring for up to 25 boats, the largest being around 50 metres and parking for around 20 cars, this water front estate offers amazing scope both privately and commercially.

The Chalet was imported from Switzerland in 1882 and was a garden feature for a substantial house called Riverholm. There is a story that the land the Chalet was built on, was bequeathed by the Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) in payment for a gambling debt, which seems unlikely.

After a period the Swiss Chalet was used as the boathouse with conjunction of the boatyard for Riverholm until 1996 and was then put up for sale. It was sold in 2010 and has since been restored to its original purpose, that is to be part of this luxury Boatyard and Marina.

The Chalet and surrounding landscape is one of a kind which can only be described with a viewing. Visitors to the property include Judy Garland, Charlie Chaplin and Fred Astaire,being among the few privileged.
