Our Property of the Week feature highlights homes currently on the market with local estate agents and Teddington Nub News property sponsor Estate & Agent.

This week's property is a handsome double fronted, three to four bedroom detached house in sought-after Hampton Wick with quite the backstory.

Located in the neighbourhood's conservation area, the home boasts views over Bushy Park while still providing excellent access to Kingston town centre (10 minutes walk) and central London (30 to 35 minutes by train).

Yet the location is just the start for this property: the current homeowners, who have lived in the property for 27 years, have said General Eisenhower, Supreme Allied Commander during WW2, is rumoured to have visited the property while planning the Normandy landings.

The garden has plenty of sun both for you and the greenhouse

A classic English country garden

It doesn't take a history buff to appreciate the rest of the property's charms; one of the home's many highlights is its lovingly tended 100-foot mature English country garden towards the rear.

It is well stocked with flowers, shrubs and trees including fruit trees, garden shed and greenhouse, while convenient side access leads to the front of the property.

Entering through the front door off Church Grove, you can't miss the generous double-aspect sitting room, nor its accompanying period fireplace.

It is joined by a second reception room across the hall, originally used as a dining room, which comes equipped with a second period fireplace, bay window, and alcove shelving.

The property's kitchen offers more than enough space for a breakfast room or dining area, with practical touches like the walk-in larder, WC, and utility room.

Natural light and granite worktops are real highlights of the space

Viewers might miss its granite countertops and high-quality fitted units for the stunning conservatory dining room next door – its French windows lead out into the garden, creating an ideal entertaining space.

Although nowhere in the house beats this fabulous conservatory for natural light

The double-aspect master bedroom is a real standout, featuring two sets of fitted wardrobes in the dressing area and a fitted en-suite shower room.

The second bedroom also features fitted wardrobes, as well as boasting a window seat tucked in the room's bay window.

Towards the rear of the property is a characterful third bedroom with more built-in wardrobes and a charming fireplace.

The final stop on the first floor is an impressive family bathroom, with a large fitted bath, separate shower cubicle, vanity sink and W.C. 

A large window overlooks the garden and there is attractive Italian marble tiling with underfloor heating.

These three charming bedrooms are joined by an additional den or guest room on the lower ground level, alongside a cosy study.
