70 Thames Street is nestled on the leafy green banks of the ancient village of Sunbury-on-Thames. The former village bakery is just fifteen miles from the centre of London and a few minutes drive from the M25, but it feels like a rural idyll. The imposing double-fronted Grade 11 listed four story Georgian house looks out over the River Thames and has direct access via a fifty foot jetty. There is plenty of light airy space inside a split-level mezzanine conservatory with a spiral staircase, as well as a terrace and tree house with river views, and additional seating overlooking the river in a Moroccan inspired decked area, covered with an established grape vine. There are a number of other points of interest including a 12ft listed bread oven in the kitchen, believed to pre-date the house to Tudor times, according to a historian for Royal Palaces and an ancient wisteria wall that flowers in May through to July. The house has fourteen rooms, each containing stunning fireplaces, original wide oak floorboards, squishy Liberty armchairs, Cabbages & Roses linen curtains, and a French antique gold claw foot bath. Lots of potential both inside and out.
