Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Designed by the world renowned architect Sir Terry Farrell CBE, Drum House is an exceptional modernist home that has just been the subject of a painstaking and exquisite refurbishment programme, completed in 2018. There is a real depth of quality and thoughtfulness to the remedial works, including the installation of four superbly appointed bathrooms, a beautiful Bulthaup kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and iPad controlled heating, lighting and audio systems. Totalling an impressive 6863 square feet the house has a wonderful lateral footprint and is arranged over just two levels, with uncluttered and exciting spaces really emphasising the magnificent room proportions. Built in 2004 Drum House nestles idyllically and discretely in a private gated backwater, accessed from the River Lane. The layout of the house has a fantastic flow, with a real emphasis on natural light, privacy and the creation of a seamless blend between the outside and inside.

Further features of particular note include the beautifully designed and well established gardens created by John Sallis Chandler - a multiple gold medal winner at The Chelsea Flower Show, the double height gallery (running the full length of the house) that greets you immediately upon entering the property, and last but not least the simply stunning drawing room with its wonderful aspects and cube like proportions. Setting The house is discretely located just off River Lane, an enchanting backwater in the heart of Petersham village that meanders down to a particularly scenic stretch of the River Thames. River Lane tennis club is located within just a couple of hundred yards and its membership remains exclusive to the handful of residents in River Lane.

The sophisticated yet charming shops and restaurants of Richmond are within just one mile (via a picturesque riverside walk) and Hyde Park Corner is within approximately 11 miles. Whilst immediately to hand The Petersham Nurseries and The Dysart Arms are held in high gastronomic esteem. Richmond train station offers a rapid and direct service into London Waterloo, as well as the District line tube and overland to Stratford, via north London. The A316 can be found within approximately 2 miles and adjoins the M3 at Sunbury or central London in the other direction, via the A4. The M3 in turn adjoins the M25, thereby providing excellent links to Gatwick and Heathrow international airports.
