This five bedroom, two bathroom early Victorian townhouse is located near beautiful Richmond Hill and comes with a garden and off-street parking.
The home is perfectly situated just off the lower slopes of Richmond Hill, near to Richmond Park, the river Thames and the sophisticated shops and restaurants in Richmond town centre.
It is a perfect base for a family or groups of up to eight (seven adults, one child) to explore this historic and outstanding area which also has good transport links into the city and West End.

On the ground floor there is a double-size living space with traditional sitting room at the front with an imposing fireplace, wooden floors, American-style shutters and plenty of seating. This flows through to a second lounge area with comfortable sofas for family chill-out time in front of the TV.
The well-equipped spacious kitchen at the rear of the house provides a real hub for families and friends to eat together in the large dining space or gather around the island for drinks. Double doors lead out onto the leafy walled garden.
