A spectacular Victorian end-of-terrace house in the desirable Bedford Park neighbourhood in Chiswick. The property was designed by Richard Norman Shaw, considered among the greatest British architects of all time, and has achieved Grade-II Listed status on account of its remarkable features.
The house was built in the Queen Anne style made popular by Norman Shaw, and features the fine brickwork, quoins, bay windows, high ceilings and pediments associated with this type of property. Its current owner has maintained these period features while upgrading and modernising the property to provide a contemporary living and entertaining space.
The ground floor features a welcoming double reception room with wooden flooring and two fireplaces. A bay window provides this front room with natural light and double doors lead from the reception room into a spectacular extended kitchen and dining room. This room features a fully fitted kitchen complete with an island, a wine cellar and two pairs of French windows leading into the property's west-facing garden.
The property's upper floors are accessed via a wide staircase to the rear of the property, which features handsome stained-glass windows. The first floor hosts a modern family bathroom and three double bedrooms, two of which feature built-in wardrobes and one of which is currently furnished as an office room. The top level features an additional two double bedrooms, both of which benefit from fitted wardrobes and access to eaves storage, and a four-piece family bathroom suite.
Woodstock Road is a quiet residential road set within Bedford Park, a highly sought-after neighbourhood in close to Turnham Green in Chiswick. This area has been described as the world's first garden suburb, and formed a model for the development of garden cities and suburban areas across the country and even the world. On account of this status, Bedford Park is now a conservation area and many of its beautiful Queen Anne style houses are now Listed and all of the trees which line its streets are protected.
The property itself is moments away from both Turnham Green Terrace and the Chiswick High Road, enabling residents to take advantage of the excellent selection of independent and high-street shops, restaurants and cafes Chiswick is renowned for. A range of other amenities including banks, post offices, and gyms are also close by, alongside green spaces including Ravenscourt Park and Chiswick Common. Turnham Green Underground station, as well as numerous local bus routes, provide commuters with excellent transport links into and out of the city centre. Several well-regarded schools, including Southfield Primary School, the Arts Educational School, Wendell Park Primary School, Orchard House School, and The Good Shepherd Roman Catholic Primary School, are also nearby.
