At the heart of Richmond upon Thames is the river. For twenty one miles the Thames winds its way through the only London Borough to cover both banks. The tide ebbs and flows past elegant houses and internationally-renowned visitor attractions, linking Hampton Court Palace at the southern edge with the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew on the northern edge. With its boundary extending from Hammersmith Bridge to Hampton Court, it covers over fifteen thousand acres of which five thousand acres is open space.
37 Strawberry Vale occupies an enviable riverside position on a quiet stretch of the River Thames in historic Strawberry Vale, famously home to the 18th century poet Alexander Pope, and Horace Walpole, the English writer and antiquarian who transformed his house into a "little gothic castle" called Strawberry Hill.
In addition to the attraction of the river, the house is ideally located to take advantage of the rich variety of shops, restaurants, theatres and nightlife of the nearby riverside towns of Richmond and Kingston, whilst even closer are the excellent local facilities offered in Teddington and Twickenham.
Village shops can be found a few hundred yards away at Strawberry Hill.
Twickenham train station also offers a fast service to Waterloo which takes approximately twenty-five minutes. The District Line provides a fast link to the whole of the London Underground network via stations at Richmond and Kew Gardens.
The area enjoys thousands of acres of varied parkland including the Royal Parks of Richmond Park and Bushy Park where you will find an ever-changing landscape of wildlife which includes red and fallow deer.
Richmond upon Thames has long been recognised as a centre for the Arts, and at present there are three cinemas (including an independent film house), three theatres and a variety of galleries and museums. Sports activities are also well catered for within the borough offering well equipped sports centres and clubs. In particular first class leisure facilities are available at David Lloyd and The Lensbury.
The house requires updating or redevelopment (subject to the usual planning consents) but currently provides 4 bedrooms and three reception rooms.
The ground floor comprises a generous entrance hall, double reception room / dining room with separate kitchen and garden room. A convenient guest toilet is also found off the hallway.
Along with a garage to the side of the property, there is parking for a number of cars to the front and a garden that extends over 230ft down to the banks of the river.
The position of the house on the Thames affords excellent views both up and downriver towards Twickenham riverside and Teddington, with Ham Fields across the water.
Opportunities such as this do not come often and viewings are strongly advised.
