This property has now been taken off the market (as of 13 January 2020).
3 Bed Semi-Detached House, Chestnut Road, TW2
The house was extensively refurbished and extended to a design by Morgan Harris Architects Ltd in 2008 and has been well maintained by the owner ever since. It is coming up to let for the first time since being refurbished and will be refreshed prior to handover.
Chestnut Road is one road back from the wonderful Twickenham Green - with a plethora of local events happening throughout the year. Twickenham Town Centre is a short walk away along the bustling and vibrant Heath Road, whilst Twickenham Green itself is served well with a Sainsbury's Local and a range of restaurants and shops.Local stations are Strawberry Hill and the newly re-built Twickenham Station a slightly longer walk away, but with very fast trains into Waterloo, Clapham Junction and a range of other Destinations including Kingston, Richmond (for District Line Underground), Reading and Windsor. There are a large number of local buses with direct connections as diverse as Hammersmith, Kingston, Heathrow, Hounslow, Twickenham Centre and Richmond. For those with a car Chestnut Road has great access to the M3 and Central London; parking will be even easier as a CPZ is being introduced as of March 2020; great timing!
The white front elevation is set back from Chestnut Road and benefits from a compact front garden that allows for easy and concealed bin storage and a distinct street presence. At present the front garden also has a number of planters which the incoming residents may wish to use or not - depending on whether they like clean white pure lines or to set these off with a flourish of well considered horticultural fun.
As you approach the house you are greeted by the joyous yellow front door (bespoke made in Portugal) which has a porthole window to allow a peek at anyone ringing the doorbell and is well protected with Banham locks.
The Ground Floor is laid out with a generous Entrance Hall with double doors through to a well specified modern Kitchen, stairs up to First Floor and a door through to Living Room.
The Kitchen has large format bespoke Granite Tops and integrated A rated appliances, including an excellent cylindrical island extract fan, a large new (2019) Fridge Freezer, an integrated Dishwasher, an integrated oven and a wonderfully generous Franke sink with mixer tap. The Kitchen has plenty of built in storage and is a joy to cook in. The Ceramic Hob is easy to clean and works extremely well. Within the Kitchen is an integrated Washing Machine. The Kitchen looks over the front garden and is served by three full height anthracite framed aluminium windows - all very glamorous and being higher than street level very private and secure too.
There is a well designed modern WC accessed from the Kitchen with natural light from a rear window.
The Entrance Hall and Kitchen both have doors through to a huge Dining and Living Room with ample space for open plan family living. The boiler cupboard houses a powerful A-Rated Worcester Bosch boiler that has been regularly serviced. This large cupboard is mirrored by another large built in cupboard for additional storage - all very handy for a clutter free existence without the hassle. The Living Room benefits from side access to a side return that itself has separate garden access (very handy if bringing things through to the garden without traipsing through the house). There is a range of built in storage in the Living Room including a generous coat and boot cupboard beneath the stairs, kitted out with hooks and a handy light. The side return can also be used for bin and bike storage.
To the rear of the Living Room a wide set of anthracite coloured Folding Sliding Doors can be opened up to create a direct connection to the wonderful garden - very well planted with a wide range of flowering and fruiting plants as well as herbs - none of which require high maintenance! The garden has designated seating areas at both ends and in the middle.
At the far end of the generous garden is a 'lodge' style garden room; all in white. This insulated building has a power supply ad has been used throughout the year (for many years) as a yoga studio.
The Stairs from the Entrance Hall lead up to a bright and airy landing with a huge landing cupboard - great for storing all sorts of things from Hoover (or should that be Dyson, Gtech or Shark these days?) to Ironing Board, Linen and whatever takes your fancy but needs putting away. It's always good to have plenty of built in storage as anyone who likes to live easily and comfortably well knows!
The door directly ahead leads to the well fitted out bathroom with modern slate tiling and well specified robust and modern sanitary and brass-ware. A large bath is served with a fixed shower head, a hand held shower and a lovely 'Extra-Fill' concealed bath filler that means no taps to jab you in the back when taking a relaxing candle-lit plunge. The modernist wall hung WC, Bidet and Basin add a degree of 'Hotel Lux', elegance and style. A full height linen cupboard with built in shelving acts as a great linen store and integrated flush mirror fronted storage above the WC, Bidet and Basin make for a massively glamorous concealed wall of mirrored storage - great for all of your perfumes, aftershave, make up and toothbrushes - and yes, it has a built in shaver socket that allows for tooth-brushes to be hidden away whilst charging. The bathroom is naturally lit by a wonderfully large anthracite framed aluminium window with great sky views that is not at all overlooked. When dark or overcast a range of built in down-lights give the necessary sparkle.
There are two well sized double bedrooms, one to the front with built in mirror fronted wardrobes and one to the rear. There is a single bedroom to the rear that could accommodate a bunk bed if needed.
This is a unique and well designed modern home in an ideal location. It is flooded with light and is in a unique spacious end-of-terrace situation. It is rare to find a modernist property of this calibre available to let.
