The river provides an appealing backdrop and also an opportunity for rowing and cruising or simply following the tow path on foot.

The 2,300 acres of Richmond Park also allow many pursuits such as walking, running and riding.
Designed and commissioned approximately 18 years ago by the current owners, 26 Fife Road is a genuinely unique residence. South facing and secluded, it is situated in a wonderfully private position, tucked away down a private shared driveway. All rooms look out onto the magnificent south facing gardens, of about half an acre which directly borders historical Richmond Park. The backdrop of this lush and mature garden is the extensive woodland inside the park. The garden affords a profusion of colour and variety throughout the seasons and is screened from overlooking giving a sense of being in the countryside. The large terrace, paved in natural stone, is ideal for entertaining.
The interior is bathed in light and feels at one with nature because its south facing reception rooms have floor to ceiling glass and high ceilings which, together with sliding glass doors, deliver an immense feeling of light and space, whilst showcasing the outstanding landscaped gardens and opening onto the terrace from all ground floor rooms.
The property is approached via a landscaped circular driveway providing parking for four cars and, in addition, there is a large double garage and car port pergola. The grand front door leads into a reception hall with its feature curved staircase in limestone and opens onto the double height dining room and down a split level into the large main reception room. A galleried study area overlooks the front gardens and affords views through the house to the main garden. Further accommodation on the ground floor has the benefit of its own separate entrance and consists of a small fitted kitchen and second reception room/bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
The first floor accommodation provides glorious views of the gardens and woodland of Richmond Park from all rooms and, in particular, from the landing and large terrace of the master suite . Across the landing 3 further bedrooms and two further bathrooms share the same outstanding outlook.
