A rare opportunity to acquire one of the best pieces of real estate in Barnes. The property consists of an impressive and substantial main house, a Summer House/Orangery, an additional freehold house that has been divided into two apartments and a double garage block.
Situated on the sought-after Lonsdale Road, within easy reach of Hammersmith Bridge, the property consists of an impressive, substantial detached main house (with a double garage block) and a spacious 90 ft garden, as well as an additional coach house divided into two independent flats, one of which with its own patio garden. The two houses are connected on the same plot by a large and bright summer house built at the end of the garden. Both Lonsdale and Boileau Road are freehold houses under one title.

The second (top) floor has two bedrooms and a sitting room with a kitchenette and a large storage room with built in cupboard and shelves. The basement has a cellar and a sauna with its dedicated shower room/wc. The main house would benefit from updating.
