The Towerhouse

We have a delightful Grade 2 Listed detached Victorian villa, built in 1851, on the outskirts of London, in a popular urban village within easy reach of the centre (20 mins by train, station within a 5 minute walk). You can get into the countryside in the other direction within a 20 minute drive. Wimbledon, Twickenham, Richmond Park, Hampton Court and Kew Gardens are all nearby.

The house is 165 sq m, has a tower, a library/music room, a TV snug, a writing room, and a lovely secluded garden, all of which we've done up over the last 15 years. It has many unique historic features, three double bedrooms and a single bedroom at the top of the tower! The house is naturally cool in summer and cosy in winter.

The garden is equipped with an outdoor chess board, a basketball hoop, a Japanese meditation hut, a trampoline, three rabbits, 5 bikes and you're welcome to borrow our 7-seater car if we're not using it.

Although it's on a main road, it's still quite private, and the advantage is you're very close to public transport.
