Our home

Available for a non simultaneous exchange 14th to 20th August 2019 Our home is a 3/4 bedroom townhouse in Strawberry Hill, a small, pretty "village" in a beautiful part of South West London and only 35 minutes from Central London

The house is arranged over three floors:

Ground Floor:

Garage - separate side entrance, useful for storage.

Garden Room/Bedroom 4 - A small room at the back of the house with access through French Doors to the back garden. Has a double sofa bed.

Toilet/Utility Room with wash hand basin and washing machine.

Rear Garden - French Doors lead out to an area of decking with barbeque and garden table and chairs. Beyond this a small garden laid to lawn with flower borders and plum trees at the back.

First Floor:

Kitchen - small kitchen with all the normal appliances

Lounge/Diner - large through lounge/diner. The dining area, to the rear of the house has a small balcony overlooking the rear garden and village centre beyond.

Second Floor

Bathroom - bath with shower over, wash basin and toilet

Main bedroom - double bed

Bedroom 2 - double bed

Bedroom 3 - small "box" room with single bed

If you are looking for super luxury accommodation then our house is probably not for you! The kitchen and bathroom in particular are ready to be refurbished. That said, they are clean, functional and everything works fine.

If you are looking for a good sized house with garden in a really nice area with great communications to central London then I think you will be really happy here.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four.

    I, Paul, am a Massage Practitioner and Pilates Teacher, working mainly in Central London.

    My wife, Maru, is from Mexico. She has lived here for fifteen years and she, too, is a Massage Practitioner.

    We have two daughters, Sofia 16 and Gabriela 13.

    Also part of the family is Percy, our four year old Cockapoo. You're welcome to have him with the house but he's also happy to go and stay with my parents.

    We have lovely neighbours, particularly the retired couple who live directly next door, who I am sure would help in any way they could while you were here.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Strawberry Hill is a lovely little "village" situated between Twickenham and Teddington in South West London.

Our house is situated in the heart of the village where there are shops including a small Supermarket, Post Office, Café/Tea Room, Wine Shop, Hairdressers, Spa Treatment Centre,a really nice Thai Restaurant and Strawberry Hill Railway Station.

Strawberry Hill Railway station is only 100 metres away with regular trains to Central London taking only 35 minutes. In fact you can see the station from the first floor balcony.

Local Attractions include:

- Strawberry Hill House. A famous mock gothic house 5 minutes walk away.

- River Thames. 5 minutes walk away is a small park, Radnor Gardens, with frontage to the River Thames.

- Teddington. 10/15 minutes walk away, Teddington is a pretty town with lots of good independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs.
Teddington Lock is a picturesque crossing of the Thames where there are riverside pubs and walks along the river.

- Twickenham. 10/15 minutes walk away in the opposite direction. Twickenham has a nice riverside location with more good pubs and restaurants. The Swan, a pub by the river, is a particular favourite of ours. You can hire boats in Twickenham and there is a small passenger ferry across the river to Ham House, a famous Elizabethan House dating back to the 16th Century. From Twickenham it is possible to walk all the way along the river to Richmond upon Thames.

- Richmond upon Thames. 3 stops on the train, Richmond upon Thames is a famous riverside town, larger than Teddington or Twickenham.
Walk up Richmond Hill for spectacular views of the River Thames and from there you can walk to the entrance to Richmond Park, London's largest park (it's huge), popular with walkers and cyclists and where deer roam freely.

- Kingston upon Thames. 3 stops on the train in the opposite direction, Kingston also has a nice riverside area but it's main claim to fame is it's shopping. It is one of the best shopping towns outside Central London.

- Bushy Park. 20 minutes walk or one stop on the train to Teddington Station, Bushy Park is one of the Royal Parks where wild deer roam freely and people go to walk and cycle. Not as big as Richmond Park but a bit closer.

- Hampton Court Palace. Situated on the other side of Bushy Park is Hampton Court Palace, a world heritage site situated on the Thames and made famous by Henry VIII. Well worth a visit.

So, as you can see, there is lots to see and do locally. What's especially nice is that our part of London is really green and pleasant with all the riverside places and activities,contrasting well with Central London and all that has to offer.
