Location

Leafy Harvard Road is in a central Chiswick location close to Chiswick High Road. Chiswick Park, Turnham Green and Gunnersbury Underground stations (District Line) are close by. There is easy access to central London via the A4, and to Heathrow Airport and the west of England via the M4.

Chiswick is a hugely popular and prosperous large suburb of West London located on the northern side of the River Thames, 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Charing Cross. It was historically an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex, with an agrarian and fishing economy. The name "Chiswick" is of Old English origin meaning "Cheese Farm" and originates from the riverside meadows and farms that are thought to have supported an annual cheese fair on Dukes Meadows up until the 18th century.

The style of property in Chiswick is varied offering everything from mansion flats along the High Road and on Sutton Court Road, to pretty Victorian cottages on the Glebe Estate. Large Victorian detached houses are found in Grove Park, and Arts & Crafts houses throughout Bedford Park. The River front, Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green are lined with elegant Georgian houses ensuring that there is a fantastic variety of property throughout the local area.

Chiswick High Road, famous for its boulevard-style pavements, is full of quality independent outlets and an increasingly up-market selection of high street names which run from Hammersmith through to the Chiswick roundabout. Chiswick is a great place to shop and eat. Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer are all represented. Serving meat lovers are Macken Bros, Wyndham House and Ginger Pig butchers. Covent Garden Fishmongers do as their name suggests. Bayley & Sage have an amazing cheese counter and the Grove Park Deli on Fauconberg Road is also very popular. The Old Cinema provides Antique Vintage Retro Collections. Attractive fruit, vegetable and flower stalls add colour to the High Road. High Street banks, chemists, dry cleaners, beauty spas, fashion shops, off licences and general repair shops as well as many other outlets means there is no need to go elsewhere.

Among Chiswick’s fine dining choices are Michelin-starred La Trompette on Devonshire Road and Hedone on Chiswick High Road. Similarly renowned is Le Vacherin on South Parade. High Road House and its Brasserie are part of the Soho House empire; while Foxlow steak restaurant is on Barley Mow Passage. Numerous high street restaurants such as Honest Burgers, Cote, Bryons and Pizza Express cater for family tastes.

Lord Burlington’s Chiswick House is a picturesque, 18th-century Palladian mansion with gardens designed by William Kent. The birthplace of the English Landscape Movement, the gardens, with their statuary hedges and vistas, has had a £12 million makeover which includes a new café by architects Caruso St John. In recent years Chiswick House grounds have played host to Soho House group’s House Festival, enticing the great and the good of the media industry with performers who are both nationally renowned and locally resident.

Bedford Park, London’s first garden suburb, was built between 1875 and 1886 as part of the Arts & Crafts revival. Victorian property developer Jonathan Carr instructed lead architect Richard Norman Shaw (alongside EJ May, W Wilson and EW Godwin) in the building of a collection of houses and studios that now form a conservation area and are for the most part Grade II listed. Many of these houses feature elements of styling from William Morris, to whose legacy is dedicated the William Morris Society at Kelmscott House on Upper Mall.

Description

A superbly presented ground floor flat located in close proximity to the amenities of Chiswick High Road.

The flat is entered by its own front door, straight into the study area which features exposed brickwork. This room is well lit due to a sky light allowing an array of light to seep into the room below.

Adjacent to this is the reception room, which boasts a vast bay window, providing an outlook onto the garden, which coupled with the high ceilings allows an abundance of natural light to seep in. Wooden floorboards are a further feature of this impressive room, making this a desirable entertaining
space. There is also access to the basement underneath.

The master bedroom showcases inbuilt fitted wardrobes, and lies opposite the two modern and highly finished bathrooms.

The rear of the house has recently undergone an extension, and therefore provides an excellent second bedroom which is situated opposite the impressive kitchen/dining room. The modern kitchen has an array of fitted appliances including a wine fridge, and has a central island. There are also
glass bi-folding doors which lead onto the secluded south facing patio and garden beyond.

The garden is paved with a raised decked area, with some raised beds and space for outdoor entertaining.
