This charming Victorian house is one of the famous Barnes Lion Houses. Unique to the area, with their customary terracotta detailing and three lions sitting imperiously on chimney pot and balustrade, they are regarded as the most des(irable) of res(idence)s.
Inside is a wonderfully wide tiled hall, with the traditional layout of double reception room at the front and the delightful kitchen/dining at the back. A good space has been allocated for the all-important utility room. Upstairs, there are four big bedrooms and three bathrooms, enough to quieten the most vehement of demands.
Ranelagh Avenue is a quiet residential street that runs along the northern edge of Barnes Common, and is immensely popular. Barnes is the ultimate village within a city, and life long residents become misty-eyed about their childhood spent feeding the ducks on the pond, and sneaking into the Olympic Studios Cinema for a romantic teenage tryst.
There are wonderful pubs along the river, and the annual Boat Race is a huge deal. Over 95% of the shops are independent, and it is renowned for its schools, which include St Pauls, Colet Court, The Harrodian, Ibstock, The Swedish School and St Osmonds. Communications are excellent, with Barnes Station (Waterloo 20 mins) a short walk away, a good bus service to Hammersmith tube (District, Piccadilly, Hammersmith & Fulham). The M4 for Heathrow and the West Country is easily accessed.
Then all you need to do is get in touch to ask any questions or arrange a viewing. We'd love to show you around!
