House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
A wonderful family home set over four floors on the banks of the River Thames... you are not only assured of excellent views but you will be staying in one of London's most desirable locations.
At the front of the house is a paved patio area with a table and chairs for seating – a great place to enjoy the views of the Thames, while set back within the privacy of a front garden.
The elegant and charming double living area sits at the front of the ground floor. The front of the room features a window seat, large sofa, with two extra armchairs ensuring ample seating for everyone. In the corner is a large flat-screen television and a fireplace which really emphasises the period feel of the property. The second half of the room can be used as a dining area with a circular dining room table or, if needed, an extra bedroom space for the larger family groups. (For the latter we would provide a double height luxury blow up mattress.) Usually used by the owners as a studio you will notice that the walls are adorned with her original paintings, the majority of which are set in the idyllic English countryside. A desk sits below a window ensuring views of the back garden whilst working and there is a well-stocked library too. A great living space stretching the entire length of the property with windows at both ends ensures the room is not only generously proportioned but also flooded with natural light.
On the lower ground floor is modern open plan kitchen and dining area very much reminiscent of an English country house with its wooden floors and large range cooker. The kitchen has an island breakfast bar with seating on stools, perfect for a snack or informal meal, and there is a large American style fridge/freezer. The second half of this spacious room has a big leather sofa and a long dining table which has four chairs and a long bench; there are a further two tables and ample chairs allowing seating for up to 14 people. Folding glass patio doors allow natural light into the room and access to an interesting walled garden bristling with plants and herbs and a perfectly sheltered patio area for alfresco dining. There's also a utility room and downstairs W.C. .
On the first floor, is the master bedroom, offering great views of the River Thames and the local rowing club directly opposite on the other side of the river. There's a king-sized bed, small dressing table, two bedside tables, a comfortable white armchair, two antique chest of drawers and an antique wardrobe. The en-suite bathroom has a roll top bath, separate walk-in shower, heated towel rail, basin, mirror and a WC.
Next to this master is another spacious bedroom. The bedroom currently has a cot and a double-height blow-up luxury air mattress can be moved into this room, should guests prefer. This room looks out over the back garden and is tastefully decorated with red velvet curtains and has recently been repainted.
On the top floor are two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The wooden floors are authentic but have been painted white one again reminiscent of an authentic country house. The first of the bedrooms has a double bed, a period fireplace and a desk with chair – well positioned to enjoy another great view of the Thames through the glass doors, which also provide access to a small balcony... what a great spot for a morning coffee!
The fourth bedroom has a double bed, bedside tables, feature fireplace, small rug, large walled mirror and a chest of drawers which holds a knowledge sculpture and a globe.
This property presents a great opportunity to stay in a comfortable family home complete with all its period features, spacious rooms and English charm.
Hammersmith, a unique suburb located in West London, is the perfect place to stay. The area is brimming with the activity and opportunity typical of London, yet retaining a certain village charm. Timelessly elegant Georgian architecture complements Hammersmith's and Chiswick's beautiful stretch of Thames riverbank. Bars, restaurants and pavement cafes have sprung up all along the tow path including the famous 'River Cafe'. Several supermarkets and an ever-expanding range of delis, boutiques and niche suppliers mean that residents rarely need to go elsewhere.
The house is around a 5 minute walk from Ravenscourt Park tube (District line) ensuring the rest of London is easily accessed. Knightsbridge and the museums of South Kensington can be reached in 15 mins, Leicester Square / Covent Garden and Oxford Street in about 30 minutes.
Alternatively, take a river boat from the nearby pier to Kew Bridge or Hampton Court Palace (to the West) or to the London Eye or Tate Modern (to the East).

The London region
On the Thames in West London, Hammersmith is a beautiful area, with a countryside feel. It is perfect for many of London's wealthy families. There is a choice of riverside eateries to explore, including The Dove pub, which was frequented by Ernest Hemingway and Graham Greene or The Crabtree which has a terrace overlooking the Thames and is popular in the summer months with people enjoying a Pimm's and the splendid views.
There are many other restaurants in the area, as well as boutique shops and cafes, or head to the Farmer's Market at Lyric Square on a Thursday for fresh products. The area is rich in cultural attractions, with four theatres: the Riverside Studios, the Bush Theatre, Curtains Up at the Baron's Theatre and finally the Lyric Hammersmith, which is considered one of the most notable theatres outside the West End. It is also home to the Hammersmith Apollo, which plays host to major concerts and stand up comedy acts.
The William Morris Society at Kelmscott House is one to visit, as is the Westfield Shopping Centre in nearby Shepherd's Bush, with hundreds of shops and restaurants. For the children, the London Wetland Centre will bring splashes and laughter, or nearby neighbourhood Barnes, just over the river, is very picturesque. There are a number of exceptional 18th and 19th century buildings in and around its historic village, and the area boasts a rock and roll history with the former Olympic Studios on Church Road playing host to many of rock and pop's greatest stars throughout the decades: from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, right through to modern day Coldplay and Madonna.
