‘Step back in time to this beautiful piece of history. Know as the Pump House. The property has been used for many years as a working Water Pump House for Thames water dating back to 1867.
As you approach this hidden spot, you’ll realise you may have discovered the Sleeping Beauty in this fairy tale setting! Set amongst a large plot of land, it’s easy to see why the current owner has stayed here for the last thirteen years.
It’s hard to imagine a better layout and location, with the main house set well back from the road, beyond earshot or sight, an impressive sweeping driveway greets you. As you pull off the road you’ll feel like you’re in an episode of Dallas!
Once within its boundary you’re greeted with pretty communal gardens. The owners love living here, and one of the more unusual features is the dining room which is set in Turret, as well as two master bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom set apart by the spacious landing.
If this not enough, this beautiful flat oozes character, charm and history. ‘
What the Owner says:
“This has been a wonderful home for 13 years and has provided many happy memories. It has been the scene of many parties and all the views from the house focus on the beautiful communal gardens. I immediately fell in love with the character and location. This property dates back to 1867, were i use to be the Water pump house for Thames Water.”
