Living on the banks of a picturesque part of the River Thames is a dream for many, so join us for a peek inside this Hammersmith home...
Although this home is a distinctively Georgian property, mostly built in the 1760s, the property actually contains remnants of an even older history. Before the tow path was even built, the home was originally a boat house right on the river, and this has become part of the basement of the existing house.
Inside this Hammersmith gem the history continues, as the home has kept and restored many of its original Georgian features from doors and windows to floors and banisters.
Seemingly made for entertaining, the double width first floor living room has space for both a sitting area and separate music space. The three sets of double French doors open up onto a luscious riverside room with space to soak in the views whatever the weather.
Also benefitting from lovely views is the kitchen and dining space on the ground floor. The generously sized kitchen has been fitted with top of the range equipment, and boasts an original fireplace to boot.
Leading off this is a wonderful conservatory area which looks out into the private gardens beyond; a perfect spot for lazy mornings in the summer months.
With a whopping six bedrooms on offer in the home, all with wonderful in-built storage, you might think it tricky to pick a favourite, but of course the master takes the cake.
Once again overlooking the meandering river, the master suite is a masterclass in pared back elegance that sits perfectly in this Georgian scheme.
As with bedrooms, there are six bathrooms in the house, but again the master has the winner. The en suite is a huge space with tonnes of storage for lotions and potions, linens and towels.
Alongside the magnificent freestanding bath there’s even an original fireplace and, honestly, we can’t think of anywhere we’d rather be on an evening. The cat’s not included, though, which is the only downside.
To the rear of the house, the mature and landscaped gardens will mean that you won’t even be missing those glorious Thames views. There are two main sections out here; a tucked away space for kids and an al fresco dining spot with the benefit of a hot tub in the corner.
