Set in the heart of leafy Surbiton, Surrey, you could be a million miles from the hussle and bussle of busy London, but in fact you are only 17 minutes from Central London by train (6-8 trains per hour to Waterloo). A truly stunning Edwardian, but ultra modern, three bedroom split level flat on a quiet residential street. Ground floor includes toilet/shower room, lounge, two bedrooms and a large kitchen and dining room. French doors in the kitchen open out onto an 'outside room' - a large balcony for dining or general relaxing. Two separate staircases lead to one mezzanine level which accommodates the master en-suite bedroom and another mezzanine level which provides a fully equipped gymnasium. From the kitchen balcony there is a Victorian iron spiral staircase down to a large attractive garden which contains a small pond and fountain, lawn, dining and BBQ areas, and separate decking areas for relaxing/sunbathing.
Surbiton, a suburban area of London in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, is a town next to the River Thames, populated with a mixture of Art-Deco buildings, spacious and grand late-19th century townhouses. Its main claim to popular fame is as an icon of suburbia in such British television programmes as The Good Life (starring Richard Briers, Penelope Keith, Paul Eddington and Felicity Kendal, and John Sessions' comedy series Stella Street, which has on occasion led to the town being nicknamed "Suburbiton". It has an excellent 'fast train' service to all of the attractions of central London which can be reached in 15 to 20 minutes with around 8 trains per hour and is within the daily London 'travelcard' zoning system. Historic and beautiful Kingston Upon Thames is a short walk away, where you can sit by the Thames at one of the many riverside pubs or shop till you drop in the extensive shopping centre and mall. Hampton Court Palace is nearby and you can walk, cycle, take a riverboat, or hop on a train and be there in no time. The All England Tennis Club at Wimbledon is only a few miles away.

Surbiton is a small, very typically English, town in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames. It has a small main street for shopping and a lovely art deco railway station. Central Kingston is a short walk along the river Thames from Surbiton. Central Kingston is a busy predominantly retail centre, with a small number of commercial offices and civic buildings. It is one of the main centres of the south west London bus network, and it is connected to Twickenham, Richmond, Wimbledon, and London Waterloo by National Rail trains.
Shopping is well catered for and is generally towards the upper end of expectations, with a good mixture of familiar High Street chains and more select boutiques. The shopping centre includes a shopping mall, "The Bentall Centre", containing the Bentalls department store and large branches of chain stores found in many British high streets.
There is a large branch of the John Lewis department store group, with a Waitrose supermarket, located in the basement. The Rotunda, located in the former Bentalls furniture depository building (a local landmark), includes a bowling alley, fitness centre, a 14-screen Odeon multiplex cinema and some restaurants.
Recent developments along the riverside south of Kingston Bridge have added bars, restaurants and a theatre, the Rose Theatre which opened in 2008 with Sir Peter Hall as the director. The ancient market is still held daily in the Market Place.
Kingston's main open space is the River Thames, with its lively frontage of bars and restaurants. Across Kingston Bridge is a tree lined river bank fronting the expanse of Hampton Court Park.
One of the more unusual sights in Kingston is several disused red telephone boxes that have been tipped up to lean against one another in an arrangement resembling dominoes. This sculpture by David Mach was commissioned in 1988 as part of the landscaping for the new Relief Road, and is called Out of Order.
We have a beautiful home in an affluent area of Greater London! (We even have a movie star/actor in our street!) Although we live in leafy suburbia, we are right by the beautiful stretch of the River Thames at Kingston and only 17 minutes by train to everything that Central London has to offer. So if you love the attractions of London but also enjoy the peace of the countryside, our own offers you both, in abundance.
