The attractively landscaped rear garden extends to approximately 100 feet and enjoys a sunny Southerly aspect. It is well stocked with mature trees and shrubs and has two seating areas to enjoy the very best of the days sun. At the rear of the garden and approached via a separate shared drive is a garage, something of a rarity for period houses in Kingston, and a large adjoining studio room. This superb room is flooded with natural light and would make a great home office, a games/play room or an artist’s studio.
Manorgate Road is residential road which has been designated a Home Zone with mature planting put in place, along with other traffic calming measures, to reduce the dominance of cars and to prioritise the needs of pedestrians, cyclists and children. There is a well-supported Residents Association and a real sense of community which has grown even stronger over the last two years as more people have spent more time at home. The house is within walking distance of local shops, cafes and restaurants and the green open space of Richmond Park – attributes which have become increasingly important in recent times. The area is highly regarded for the quality of its schooling, in both the private and state sectors, and for its communication links. For those people travelling into central London the nearby Norbiton Rail Station (Zone 5) offers an easy commute into London Waterloo (from 29 minutes at peak times) whilst the A3 provides fast access to London’s airports at Gatwick and Heathrow and the rest of the motorway network. The riverside town of Kingston upon Thames offers an excellent range of shops and other local amenities including branches of John Lewis and Waitrose, the Bentalls shopping centre and both a cinema and theatre.
