An exquisite and important Georgian family home
The house is well located within just half a mile of Kew Village and even closer to Kew Green - whose delightful open acres provide an ideal retreat from the hubbub of daily life and are home to Kew Cricket Club (formed in 1882).
The Village has a charming atmosphere with a wide selection of independent shops and cafes, a monthly market and the Michelin starred 'Glasshouse' restaurant. Kew is internationally renowned for The Royal Botanical Gardens (literally opposite the house) and historic Kew Palace.
Kew Gardens train station is located in the village and is on the District Line tube as well as the overland train to Stratford, via north London. A direct train service to London Waterloo runs from Kew Bridge Station, a few hundred yards away on the other side of Kew Bridge. The M4 motorway can also be accessed just over the bridge.
Local schools enjoy an exceptional reputation and are considered amongst the best in the country.
Built in the early eighteenth Century, 356 Kew Road is an exquisite example of Georgian architecture. The classically designed facade, with beautifully regimented fenestration, is complemented by its internal features ; both are acknowledged and protected by its Grade 2 * listed status. Of particular note is the elegant first floor drawing room, which overlooks Kew Gardens and features a magnificent mid eighteenth century plastered ceiling with agricultural motifs by Francis Engelhardt.
The house has a truly unique feel to it. Our clients have carried out a complete yet sensitive renovation and restoration programme. The rear of the house has been imaginatively re-designed and extended to provide a stunning kitchen/family room which overlooks the delightful and private rear garden. There is a real depth of quality to the refurbishment and design - whereby our clients have managed to not only preserve the magical atmosphere of the house, but to compliment it with such modern amenities as CAT cabling and under floor heating (to the kitchen area). The generous windows and open aspects lend an excellent flow of natural light. The lateral layout of the rooms is warm and distinctive, and lends the house as well to family life as it does to more formal entertaining.
At the end of the garden there is a double garage with further off street parking to the front. There is scope to develop this area further (for potential office or further residential purposes), subject of course to planning and regulatory consents.
