Harrods Estates unveils new wetlands-based project


Leading prime London estate agent, Harrods Estates is proud to offer a delightful double fronted six bedroom house set within the popular Barnes Waterside development, SW13. Having undergone extensive refurbishment, the 6,321 sq. ft. elegant residence features stunning views across the 120 acre Wetland Nature Reserve and is ideal for families looking to live in a location which offers an array of outstanding schools and excellent lifestyle.

Set behind electronic gates on a generous plot, residents will appreciate the large driveway and double garage. Upon entering the property, the grand entrance hall features a swirling wooden staircase, stone flooring and guest cloakroom. Leading from the entrance hall, the reception room has been beautifully decorated with modern furnishings, wood flooring and views out to the rear garden across to the Wetland Nature Reserve.

The elegant shaker solid wood kitchen features Miele appliances, sub zero fridge and a separate utility room. A large conservatory is the setting for dining, with space for a minimum of 12 guests, accessed via the kitchen through bifolding doors, making it ideal as an entertaining space.

Having undergone refurbishment, the property has been extended to offer a further living and bedroom area, accessed via a separate entrance if required. The versatile space can either be part of the family home, or blocked off to provide a separate apartment which would be ideal for guests, grandparents or teenagers.

Throughout the residence, door heights have been extended and skylights have been added, creating a feeling of space and allowing light to flow throughout. Leading upstairs the property features five double bedrooms, including a master suite, complete with a stunning modern bathroom, fitted wardrobes, dressing area and terrace, which is ideal for early morning coffees overlooking the Wetland Reserve.
