A beautiful family home in leafy south-west London, just 35 minutes to central London by train (station 3 minutes walk away). The property has been recently extended & refurbished to a high standard, to include 5 bedrooms (3 double; master bedroom with Luxury en-suite) sleeping 8 people. There is an office and 3 large reception rooms, including a lovely family kitchen/breakfast room.
The house is well equipped with wifi, a guest computer, flat screen TVs, satellite channels (in multiple languages), Playstation 3, DVD player, outdoors table-tennis and a lovely mature garden with BBQ.
Esher offers over a dozen restaurants and a host of bars and cafes, with the shopping & nightlife of Kingston & Richmond a short drive away.
Voted the "best area to live in the UK" (see http://bit.ly/MU1mHt). Hampton Court Palace (home to Henry VIII), boating on the River Thames and horse riding at the largest Royal Parks in London are all nearby. There are also several excellent golf courses and sports clubs.
The house is well connected to fast roads for day trips, including Windsor castle and the South Coast beaches. Both London airports (Gatwick & Heathrow) are only 40 minutes away by taxi.
Our party is 2 adults + 2 children. We are looking for two summer breaks; one for the adults only. Don't forget it's Olympics this summer! The Bike Race, Rowing and Tennis (at Wimbledon) are all close by
