A rare opportunity has arisen to acquire this large Victorian semi-detached property on the St Margarets Trust Grounds, which has been in the same family for approximately 50 years and now requires extensive refurbishment
Planning was granted in the 1960's for the property to be used as two separate apartments and a separate staircase was created at the side of the property to create two self-contained units. There is the possibility of restoring the property to its former glory as a single family home but planning permission would need to be sought from the local authority.
To the ground floor are five rooms, currently arranged as a reception room, study, two bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom and separate wc. In addition there is access to a cellar and a store room at the side of the property. The upper two floors of the property provide 6 further rooms, including a utility / kitchen. There is also a bathroom and separate WC and a storage area to the loft space.
There is a walled front garden and a larger rear garden with direct access onto The Lake Grounds, the largest of the three pleasure gardens.
The St Margarets Trusts Grounds provide a unique oasis to the West of Richmond, in the village of St Margarets. The area was developed in the late 19th Century as one of the first garden suburbs, with exclusive use of 14 acres of landscaped parkland, known collectively as the Pleasure Gardens. Divided into three grounds, this particular property leads into the Lake Grounds, which is the largest of the three and, as the name suggests, has a lake complete with two bridges. There is also a grass tennis court.
The property is located within a quarter of a mile of St Margarets village centre with its great selection of shops, restaurants and pubs and also St Margarets' station which provides a regular service to London Waterloo. The River Thames is within a 5 minute walk of the property. For the motorist, the A316 provides access to Central London and to the M3 motorway.
