We are delighted to offer this 5 bedroom detached family home located within grounds of approx. 0.27 of an acre. The property, which is full charm and character, offers accommodation arranged over two floors, with a double aspect Drawing Room, a newly installed German Rational kitchen and rear aspect Dining Room, a Study/Bedroom 5 on the Ground Floor and four further bedrooms on the First Floor. The rear garden is surrounded with mature tall trees and shrubs and benefits from total seclusion.
The Fairway is one of the premiere roads within the exclusive Coombe House Private estate which is approached from top of Traps Lane or from Warren Rise off Coombe Lane West. This wonderfully friendly estate is equidistant between Kingston and Wimbledon town centres. Both have excellent shopping facilities, from department stores housing concessions found in famous West End streets and specialised boutiques to a wide range of restaurants meeting the palates from across the world. The A3 trunk road offers fast access to central London and both Gatwick and Heathrow airports via the M25 motorway network. The nearest train station at New Malden is within walking distance and the 57 bus route runs along nearby Coombe Lane West to Wimbledon from where there are frequent services to Waterloo with its underground links to points throughout the city. The immediate area offers a wide range of recreational facilities including five golf courses, tennis and squash clubs and many leisure centres. The 2,360 acres of Richmond Park, an area of outstanding beauty easily accessed from Kingston Gate and Ladderstile Gate, provide 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. There are numerous excellent local schools for all ages, private, state and a variety of international educational establishments, many within walking distance.
The Coombe House Private Estate is extremely well run and managed by the residents. Each dwelling enters into a deed of covenant to pay a foot frontage charge which pays for the maintenance of the verges and roads and any other maintenance that is required such as the entrance pillars and gates and lighting poles. The estate enjoys leafy roads with a tranquil setting and a safe environment for families with young children. There are very few private estates within Coombe which enjoy this great community feel.

A crazy paved path to the front garden, with off street parking for three cars, leads up to the part glazed front door which opens onto a warm and welcoming Entrance Hall, with hardwood flooring, wood panelling to walls and ample under stairs cloaks cupboards and storage. Amongst the high wall panelling is a door to the elegant Guest Cloakroom, which benefits from tiled floor and fully tiled walls as well as a corner shower cubicle.
The bright Drawing Room, with its double aspect and original inglenook fireplace, benefits from hardwood flooring and French Doors opening onto the rear patio and garden.
From the Entrance Hall, a door leads to the Kitchen/Dining Room with stunning views over the Garden. The current owners have recently updated the Kitchen to create a bright, well designed contemporary space, using lacquered and wood effect wall and base units (German Rational) and modern integrated appliances such as Siemens 5 ring induction hob with extractor hood above, Siemens combi ovens and plate warmer, Neff fridge, Neff freezer and Siemens dishwasher. It also has a breakfast bar with space for 3 stools and storage below, and a composite worktop and glass splash back which add to the practicality of the kitchen. The Dining Area, with a bay window to the rear garden, benefits from wall and base units as well as recessed built in shelving and space for TV, creating an ideal extension to the kitchen space for modern families.
Furthermore, the current owners have thoughtfully redesigned this side of the house to create a separate lobby with access to the front driveway and with a deep larder cupboard housing the Potterton Boiler as well as ample shelving. In turn, the lobby leads to a double aspect Study/Bedroom Five, which benefits from hardwood flooring and is well equipped with built in furniture comprising three desks and sliding doors to shelving. It also leads to a practical Utility Area, with space and plumbing for a washing machine and tumble dryer.
On the First Floor, the spacious double aspect Master Bedroom benefits from views over the garden as well as a wall of fitted floor to ceiling wardrobes. Three other bright bedrooms, as well as a Family Bathroom with a separate toilet, are all on the first floor. There is potential to extend the accommodation both by going vertically into the loft area, as well as horizontally into the rear and to the side of the property, both subject to planning permission.
The rear garden is an oasis of lush mature greenery and calm. The owners have again cleverly extended to the side of the property creating a patio with a gate to the front, further seating area and space for a garden shed for storing tools, bikes etc… The ultimate indulgence is the Nordic style garden lodge (Arctic structures) located at the end of the garden, which provides a heated, indoor entertaining area with cooking facilities. There is also an air raid shelter dating back to the Second World War. To the side of the property, there is a storage area with doors to both the front and rear of the property, again suitable for storage. All in all, this is a well presented home which needs to be viewed to be appreciated.
