Hampton Court Road, East Molesey
What immediately strikes you upon entering this home, amongst the fine period detail, is the quality of the decorative condition and gentil colour tones. The current owners have furnished the property with a sophisticated contemporary style, which works incredibly well, in fact, a breath a fresh air in a property of its age. Conversely, the interior space is absolutely timeless and due to the scale of the rooms, it would quite easily support a more traditional style of furnishing.
You are greeted by an inviting entrance vestibule with charming double doors to an inner hallway. This in turn opens to a magnificent central hallway housing an imposing staircase with a noticeably tall ceiling, enriched with intricate plaster moulded cornicing and finished with a beautifully decorated mural — akin to something you would expect to find in a museum or gallery.
Other rooms on the ground floor include a library / study with bespoke joinery, a fireplace, and operational box sash windows with shutters, as well as an impressive dining room with open fireplace, solid walnut flooring, and a triple bay window overlooking Hampton Court Green. To the rear is a lovely family room with French windows, adjacent to this is a breakfast room leading to the kitchen with boot room beyond. To complete the ground floor, there is a useful utility room and, from an inner hall, a separate guest cloak room with W.C. as well as access to a second cellar, providing excellent cellarage.
Up on the first floor, the primary staircase leads to a front aspect drawing room, again with delightful triple bay window with views of The Green and of Hampton Court Palace. This room also features an elegant marble fireplace, along with ornate wall panelling and cornicing. Next door is a generous bedroom with built-in storage, currently set up as alternative office / workspace. The principal bedroom suite occupies the rear part of this floor and boasts an abundance of light with three sash windows with working shutters, plenty of useful storage, a dressing room, en suite bathroom and separate en suite shower.
The second floor reveals four further bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and separate shower room.
Externally there is a generous 'high' walled garden enjoying excellent privacy and seclusion for such a central location. There is a rear exit towards Hampton Court Bridge between the Gardenarium and the Mute Swan. There is also a separate garage as well as rented parking space within the yacht club. EPC N/A
