Arranged over four floors, the accommodation is elegant and charming. The property has been updated over the years but the many period features have been beautifully preserved and the result is stunning.
The property is entered via a gate from Ormond Road which leads to the upper garden and a walkway to the front door at upper ground level.
The Drawing Room, situated on the Upper Ground Floor, is a stylish and generously proportioned room featuring a magnificent bow window. Also on the upper ground floor is the pine-panelled study. The turned staircase linking the floors has an atmosphere of its own with the banisters stabilised by a French polished handrail.
The first floor is dedicated to the master bedroom suite that comprises a bedroom and unusually spacious luxury bathroom. The second floor provides two further bedrooms and a shower room with separate WC.
The lower ground floor offers one of the most striking rooms in the house. The dining room and kitchen have been created from a rib vaulted cellar room and is perfectly offset by an oak floor. Also on this floor are two further reception rooms one of which has traditionally been used as a further bedroom.
Doors lead from the kitchen and both reception rooms to the lower garden and steps within the lower garden link the upper garden. The two tiered “townhouse garden” is partially paved and features a variety of mature shrubs and plants. Secluded and sheltered, this delightful garden offers rare privacy for such a central Richmond location.
The Rosary can be found on the lower slopes of Richmond Hill on Ormond Road, an exceptionally quiet backwater just moments from the town centre. The property fronts a charming private pedestrian avenue, which features a well-stocked central flowerbed.
Transport links into central London are provided by the mainline (Waterloo) and underground (District Line) train service from Richmond Station, and a comprehensive bus network operating though the town. The major road networks near by include the A316/M3 allowing access into central London or out to the South West of England, the A4/M4 approximately 5 kms (3 miles) from the house providing easy access to London Heathrow Airport and the West Country but also into the West End and the City.
There is an extensive range of shops in Richmond including most of the recognised high street retailers, but also the famous Richmond Theatre, three cinemas and a range of restaurants and bars.
The London borough of Richmond-upon-Thames has some of the finest state, independent and international schools in the country.
Local sporting amenities include rowing, cruising and sailing on the River Thames, golf at Richmond Golf Club and Coombe Hill, walking and jogging in Richmond Park and racing at Kempton and Sandown.
