Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Twyford Cottage is situated within Shepperton’s conservation area, on a south westerly facing plot facing onto this delightful semi rural lane adjoining the River Thames. Views of the River Thames and Desborough Island beyond can be seen from the first floor galleried landing and master bedroom. Adjacent is a row of substantial detached period homes and immediately behind are the gardens of Walton Lane Farm, which is a privately owned residence, used as an equestrian smallholding with neatly kept paddocks, ménage and stables.

The exterior of this 1960’s family home belies the size accommodation within, which typical of its period has large spacious rooms with double glazed picture windows that flood the rooms with natural light. A square entrance porch and cloakroom were added in 1986, making a welcoming area to receive guests, display furniture or for the everyday practicalities of dropping off the shopping. A beautiful herringbone wood block floor flows into the generously proportioned double aspect living room, which retains its open fireplace fitted with a gas/coal effect fire and opens into the double glazed conservatory. This is a lovely room to relax and enjoy the garden and currently for the summer is being used as the dining room. Completing the ground floor is the kitchen/breakfast room that has been attractively refitted with a range of contemporary high gloss fronted units inset with a halogen hob, stainless steel cooker hood and separate circotherm oven. The dishwasher, washing machine and fridge/freezer are all integrated, helping to keep the clean uncluttered lines of the design.
The staircase rises from the hall, turning onto the galleried landing that affords views over the river. There are three bedrooms, the two double rooms having built-in wardrobes and the third is a good sized single. The master bedroom is double aspect with attractive views over the river and farm. The fully tiled family bathroom has been attractively appointed with a modern 3 piece white suite incorporating a thermostatic shower over the bath.
