Bankside is an elegant Victorian Grade II Listed house with wonderful reception rooms and an abundance of original features. At the front of the house is a very pretty ballustraded entrance porch leading into the reception hall. The drawing room and dining room are on either side and both have lovely large bay windows looking over towards the river. Throughout the property the ceilings are high and the reception rooms and bedrooms all have an original fireplace. An attractive feature on the ground floor is the original wooden herringbone flooring. At the back of the house is the family room and wonderful kitchen/breakfast room with its large windows and skylights making it bright and airy. The kitchen has a large central island with an induction hob, painted cabinetry and smart granite quartz worktops. A back door leads out to the side patio.
From the rear hall, stairs rise to the first floor landing. The master bedroom faces towards the river and has a very large en suite bath and shower room. There are two further double bedrooms each with en suite and a single bedroom with a small balcony. On the second floor is another double bedroom, also with en suite bathroom.
Bankside nestles at the bottom of Shooters Hill and has wonderful views over the River Thames. Just across the road is its own private river garden with 130 foot of river frontage and a private mooring. An area of lawn stretches the length of the garden and in one corner is a thatched summer house ideal for outdoor entertaining and barbeques. There is also a hard standing to park two vehicles.
To the side of the house is a large paved driveway with parking for up to 5 cars and a double garage. The house has a terrace on either side and the front and side perimeters have pretty wrought iron railings and hedging. There is also a path which winds up the hillside behind the house to a secluded part of the garden which has stunning elevated views over the countryside.
