A rare opportunity to purchase a spacious five bedroom link-detached family home on a highly sought after residential road in the heart of beautiful Thames Ditton.
This fine family home built in approximately 1930 is set back from the quiet tree lined road with a mature front garden and carriage driveway with ample room for two cars. The welcoming entrance hallway, complete with original detailing, sets the scene for a warm and inviting family home. Branching off the entrance hallway is the front reception room with original feature fireplace and original stripped wooden flooring. Following on from here is a large and open plan dining room and kitchen, also with feature fireplace. Excellent for entertaining and for families this room has French doors leading out to the large and mature rear garden complete with an old converted WWII bunker containing a kitchenette. Back inside the house on the ground floor is also a separate and self-contained annex with bedroom, shower room/WC and small kitchenette, perfect for guest accommodation. Finally on the ground floor is a WC.
Leading up the stairs to the first floor, past the ornate circular window, are four good sized bedrooms, study/bedroom and family bathroom. The property further benefits from a fixed staircase leading up to a boarded loft which is currently being used for storage but subject to planning and building regulations could be a sixth bedroom.
One of the key selling features of this home is the garden, predominately laid to lawn and with mature shrubs and borders, with plenty of space for entertaining or for the kids to play. The ‘bunker’ at the end of the garden has a variety of uses, either as just a workshop or storage area but maybe a den or playroom for the kids!
Our view – this is a substantial house on a highly sought after residential road and wonderfully located within catchment to the well regarded local schools and Thames Ditton train station. The property is awash with original features which add to the aesthetic appeal of this traditional family home. The property offers spacious accommodation with large open spaces on the ground floor and a lawned garden perfect for families wishing to enjoy flexible living space, whilst the bedrooms on the first floor are all good sizes.
Thames Ditton is a quaint, pretty village situated between Esher and Surbiton. In the heart of the village is Basingfield Road adjacent to the shops, cafes and amenities.

Hampton Court Palace and Bushy Park are both close by and local schools, both public and state (Thames Ditton Infants & Juniors, Hinchley Wood Primary & Secondary) are highly regarded. The Thames river walks and riverside cafés and bars of both Kingston and Hampton Court are within easy reach.
