Property description

Grimwood Road is a quiet cul-de-sac where there is a strong sense of community amongst the neighbours. Less than a couple of minute away you’ll find Grimwood Recreation Ground, a small and perfectly maintained playground and picnic area which is nicely hidden and packed with activities. Super for young children and the perfect hang out for your teenagers too.

The entrance to this lovely home is under a green arch of thick hedging and through an art deco gate, a perfect nod to the house’s era. The mature shrubbery creates a pretty barrier from the road and in turn, an incredibly private front garden too.

On entering the house, you are met by an unexpected spacious hall, which allows plenty of room for shoes, bags, coats and pushchairs.

Off to the left is a very sunny front reception room, papered with a charming Sanderson design of gold soaring swallows on a charcoal background, wooden floor, a large storage cupboard and open fire to snuggle in front of during those chilly winter nights.

Beyond the entrance hall you’ll come to the family kitchen which has all the practicalities of everyday life, the open plan nature of the space ensures it is perfectly suited to entertain whilst cooking as well as a place where the whole family can gather. The beautiful matt black painted cabinetry has brass handles and is finished off with American walnut work tops, integrated dishwasher, oven and 5 ring gas hob, all of which are Siemens. Minimalist open-shelving gives the space a very contemporary feel. There is room for cosy seating and lots of space for eating too. A sophisticated feature wall is papered with a luxury Cole and Son’s Hicks Hexagon design and a double door set opens the room into the garden.

From the kitchen, the house extends to the side where you will find the ‘must-have’ guest cloakroom, a neatly positioned recess forms the perfect workstation, a quiet space for homework without distraction, and beyond is another room, currently used as a formal study, but could also be used as a further bedroom. This area of the house also has a very useful utility cupboard housing the washer/dryer.

Upstairs are three lovely sized bedrooms, all with wooden floors and decorated in varying hues from the Farrow and Ball palate. The main bedroom is wonderfully bright and faces south with a splay bay window, and two built-in wardrobes, one being the original cupboard that would have housed the Army Officer’s uniforms.

The equally bright second double bedroom is positioned at the rear and overlooks the garden and the third bedroom is a super child’s bedroom with a very roomy built-in cupboard.

The family bathroom has a shower over the bath and storage below the basin.

The first-floor landing has a ceiling hatch with pull-down ladder which gives access to the fully boarded and spacious loft of 30sqm, which provides jolly useful additional storage, but if you had the need for more square footage, you could easily turn this area into a fabulous master bedroom suite (subject to the usual planning consents).

Turning to outside, this house has not one, but two equally useable outdoor spaces that were inspired by the award-winning garden designer, Beth Chatto whose beautiful gardens have an ecological and sustainable approach. Here, you can choose the area and the mood depending on the moment.

As already mentioned, the front garden is totally shielded from the road by the impressive hedging and is not only a lovely place to hang out, but it also provides an incredibly useful area for bins, bikes and bespoke benches, all of which have been hand-made with living roofs to compliment the vibe of this fabulous space. There is also access into the side extension of the house which leads through to the kitchen and study areas.

The low maintenance rear garden is wonderfully secluded and not only provides the most fabulous entertaining area but also offers an oasis for garden visitors with the most thoughtful wildlife habitats dotted around the space. There are frogs in the small ponds, nesting Blue Tits and Robins, not to mention the bees and guests of the 5* bug hotel.

The paths are formed from beautiful pastel coloured smooth and rounded Scottish pebbles and in between there are borders chocked full of plants and shrubs that provide colour and interest throughout the seasons.

Although North-East facing, the garden is full of sun due to the fact this property isn’t closely overlooked by any of its neighbouring houses and provides the perfect spot for morning coffee, a weekend crossword or a relaxing sundowner. There is even a hot tub (by separate negotiation) to conclude the many ways you can appreciate all of the many options this garden provides. 

On a practical note, the house is fully double glazed and has a modern Vaillant combination boiler which is serviced annually. There is a fibre broadband connection to the house and Freesat installed.

 And as if all of the above isn’t attractive enough, you also have a coveted private off-street parking space for two cars, just across the road from the house.

You’d be hard pressed to find another community like Twickenham. It’s fun, vibrant and a mix of thoroughly interesting and creative types who love their neighbourhood, reflected in the colourful list of coffee shops, great pubs along the river and the much-loved Church Street with its independent restaurants and quirky retail shops. It’s also a hub of public transport; another factor in this extraordinary city fringe destination, along with exceptional public spaces (such as Marble Hill Park and Richmond Park), galleries and markets to keep you occupied and fulfilled at weekends. The A316 allows fast access to the M3, M25 and beyond. Close to Twickenham Station (fastest train is half an hour to Waterloo), this is a superb family home in one of the most sought-after areas of South-West London. Grimwood Road is a cul-de-sac just off Whitton Road, within close walking distance of the newly designed station and close to Twickenham Town Centre where you’ll find a large Waitrose and Marks and Spencer Food Hall. Excellent schools, both state and private, are another huge bonus of living in the area and including Orleans Park Secondary School (Outstanding), St Mary’s Primary School (Outstanding), St Catherine’s School (Private) and Radnor House (Private) to name but a few.
