A beautifully light and spacious five double bedroom period family home, located on a highly sought after tree-lined cul-de-sac, close to the river Thames, Barnes village and Barnes Bridge mainline station.

This beautiful spacious property has high ceilings throughout.

There is potential to further expand the existing kitchen-diner, subject to the necessary consent. The ground floor also provides access to a good sized useful cellar. The first floor offers a fabulous full-width bedroom with built-in wardrobes, together with two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The second floor has a further double bedroom and bathroom. There is also a sizeable area of loft space accessible from this floor, that could be considered for conversion (STPP). Up a further short flight of stairs is a large and very bright 18' x 18' bedroom with ample eaves storage.

This is a most attractive family home, perfectly situated from which to enjoy life in Barnes village, with its riverside pubs and restaurants, duck pond and regular farmers market.

Barnes Bridge mainline station is accessed via The Terrace just a few minutes walk away, with both the independent shops and restaurants of White Hart Lane and boutiques of Barnes village easily accessible on foot.

Rick Stein's first London venture also overlooks the river from Tideway Yard. Just a walk away across Barnes Bridge is the exclusive Riverside Health and Racquets Club, with its great facilities including pools and Spa.
