Albion Road is a discreet, hidden oasis off Coombe Lane West and is ideally located within walking distance to Norbiton train station and a variety of schools, from Rokeby School, Holy Cross and Marymount International on George Road which is easily accessible from a foot path found towards the end of Orchard Rise directly opposite Albion Road and Coombe Hill Infants and Juniors school. It is also conveniently located close to Kingston and New Malden town centres with their excellent shopping facilities, as is the A3 trunk road offering fast access to central London and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports via the M25 motorway network. Norbiton train station provides frequent services to London Waterloo (25 minutes approximately) with its underground links throughout the city. The immediate area offers a wide range of recreational facilities including three golf courses, tennis and squash clubs. The Royal Richmond Park which is within easy access from the Kingston gate is an area of outstanding beauty, and provides a picturesque setting in which to picnic, go horse riding, jogging or just take a leisurely walk. Theatres at Wimbledon and Richmond are also popular alternatives to the West End together with an excellent choice of restaurants.
Originally built circa 1928, this home offers wonderful family accommodation arranged over two floors within grounds of approximately 0.33 of an acre with a 164’ (50 m) long west facing secluded and mature rear garden.
The property boasts excellent bespoke fitted units to the kitchen, utility room, all the bedrooms, studies and bathrooms. Other notable features include an outdoor leisure area with a real log fireplace within a vast terraced area ideal for the alfresco entertainment evening and a quality constructed Cedar clad garden room complete with its own deck terrace suitable as a teenage den, gym or hobby room and an intercom phone to the main house.
The house is fully double glazed and benefits from a double width garage with a workshop area and a remote control operated garage door. On the 19th August 2013, planning permission was granted (valid for 3 years) to erect a side extension over the existing floor plan to create two further bedrooms and an en suite bathroom.
Apart from the three spacious reception rooms, there is a wonderful kitchen/dining room leading onto the rear garden via bi-folding doors bringing the garden and terrace into the house which has proved to be a wonderful area for entertaining. The kitchen is well equipped with a wide range of stainless steel appliances from a coffee machine, microwave, double oven with grill, further 90 cm wide oven, fridge/freezer and integrated dishwasher with a 5 ring gas hob and heavy duty extractor fan above with a glass splash back around the perimeter of the black granite surface. The hand painted bespoke fitted kitchen offers a wealth of storage areas including a built-in wine rack. All the bedrooms are of double proportions with the fifth bedroom currently used as a dressing room to the master suite with American Oak bespoke built-in units. The modern fitted boutique style bathrooms with their wet showers benefit from under floor heating as with the ceramic tiled floor to the kitchen/dining room and the den to the rear garden. Various rooms have Lutron lighting and built-in speakers to the drawing room and kitchen/dining room ceiling and recessed low voltage down lighters to all rooms. The drawing room also features a beautiful Marble fireplace where one can use real logs as an extractor has been fitted for this purpose. Most rooms also benefit from 5 amp sockets for side lights. The joinery to the ground floor is American Oak and adds to the endless quality features found in this wonderful family home.
