Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to purchase a piece of quintessential English village life, set within the picturesque Thameside village of Lower Sunbury, overlooking Orchard Meadow park to the side and the River Thames from the upper floor rooms. Pictorial history shows this elegant Georgian property was built as a shop with two stories of residential accommodation over. It currently remains in this format but planning consent was been granted on the 25th January 2016 (15/01214/COU) to convert the commercial element into four habitable rooms and for the whole building to be used a single residential residence.
The current layout comprises, two separately accessed offices on the ground floor with an adjoining rear communal room that has access to the garden and a staircase down to a large dry cellar. A rear staircase rises to the first floor residential accommodation that offers a versatile layout with generously-proportioned rooms each enjoying attractive south or westerly views and retaining their high ceilings and some of their original architectural features. The first floor provides the main living space leading off a central hallway. The principal drawing room is an elegant room retaining its fireplace and two tall, south facing sash windows that flood the room with natural light. To the southwest corner is a delightful second sitting room/double bedroom, which is double aspect and has an ornate cast iron fireplace with an Adam style surround and a range of built-in storage cupboards or wardrobes. The separate dining room is set to the rear, again retaining its fireplace inset with decorative tiling and has French doors onto a full width balcony. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the park and is fitted with a range of laminate front units with tiled worktops and provision for the usual appliances. Completing this level is a bathroom fitted with a 3 piece white suite. The original staircase rises from the reception hall to the large second floor landing with access to the loft space. There are four bedrooms, 3 being good-sized double rooms, those to the front having southerly views over the river. The main bathroom is of a generous size fitted with a corner bath, two washbasins and a low flush WC. Council Tax: Band F
