The Old Brick Yard, Twickenham
Located in the heart of Twickenham this stylish warehouse conversion is set on a peaceful private road within a mews style development.
Located just 0.2 miles from Twickenham Station and within 200 metres of the high street everything within this property is of the highest finish and quality. Refurbished fully by the current owners the property was previously used as a brickyard and has had various commercial/manufacturing uses throughout its history before being converted into a stunning home.
The property is approached through a private courtyard garden which can also be used as off-street parking. You enter the building on the ground floor and are immediately transported to another world.
With attention to detail wherever you look, simply describing this property does not do justice to the sympathetic conversion the current owners have achieved. With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, kitchen diner, utility room, living room, study and playroom the property offers spacious accommodation arranged over four floors.
From the handmade oak faced plywood kitchen cupboard doors to the polished concrete floors, there are areas of interest throughout the property. Exposed brick walls nod to the original usage of the building which has been carefully crafted into a wonderful family home.
Large cast iron radiators, exposed joists and surface mounted electrics are beautifully married with modern fittings, Corian worktops, underfloor heating and double-glazed windows to provide a practical home with historic charm throughout.
