Rarely in leafy Barnes does a house come on to the market that combines both Victorian elegance with practical family living. The current owners of this spectacular property in Lonsdale Rd SW13 have painstakingly restored this beautiful house into the perfect home for a modern growing family while maintaining a wealth of its period features.

Approached via a driveway with off street parking for 4 vehicles, the house has a welcoming entrance hall that leads to a most attractive and spacious double reception room with folding shutters to large front facing bay windows. The study/ formal reception room has a spiral staircase down to the lower ground floor which is a fantastic space – a reception/dining room which leads through to a stunning kitchen/breakfast room benefiting from full width French doors onto the garden – perfect for open plan entertaining, both inside and out. Upstairs there are five good sized bedrooms (one en-suite and one family bathroom) plus a further shower room.

A big advantage of this property is its proximity to good schools. St Paul’s, The Harrodian, Colet Court and The Swedish School (Svenksa Scolan) are just a few minutes walk away while for younger pupils St Osmunds (R.C) and Barnes Primary are situated in Barnes Village (just a short drive away).

Although a family area with a village-y feel, Barnes benefits from being very centrally located with excellent transport links. The underground station at Hammersmith is close by (District, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & City lines) as are bus networks. Access to the M4 motorway with its links to Heathrow and the M25 orbital networks is easily accessible via Hammersmith Bridge.

In Barnes Village the river, pond and green give the impression of being in the countryside and there is a farmer’s market on Saturday mornings. For those who prefer designer shops and boutiques there are plenty along Castlenau Parade to keep all ages happy, as well as excellent bars and cafes.

The property is available at a guide price of £1,600,000.00 (freehold) for further details please call Savills (Barnes office) on + 44 (0) 20 8939 6900 or e:mail vmurray@savills.com
