About our home

We live in a large, terraced house in a quiet street within a lively neighbourhood. We live 5 minutes walk from the station (there is no noise from trains!) where you can take a fast train to Central London in 20 mins. We have four bedrooms, one with bunk beds, two with double beds, and one with a double bed and ensuite shower room. There is one large living room, and a large kitchen/dining room. The house is a typical Victorian/Edwardian house built in c1911, and has been extended into the loft where the ensuite double bedroom is situated. The kitchen has also been extended so is larger than average, and leads out to a 30ft garden with decking and a BBQ. There are wooden floors throughout the ground floor and carpets on the upper floors. The house is clean and with modern furnishings, & has flat screen satellite TVs in kitchen and sitting rooms. We have a weekly cleaner who can be available if required. We also have friendly neighbours and family living nearby who would be happy to assist you once you were here.
Twickenham is a pleasant suburb of London, ideally placed for travelling around the UK or exploring London which can be reached by high speed rail link. We are a 5 minute walk from the station, local shopping, cinemas, good restaurants, pubs and bars. There are several parks on our doorstep and the River Thames is a 10 minute walk away. There are many tourist attractions nearby, notably Legoland, Hampton Court Palace, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London Wetland Centre and Twickenham Stadium, home of English Rugby Union. We are a 10 minute drive from the M3 motorway which connects easily to the M25, M4, M1. We are a 20 minute cab ride from London's Heathrow Airport.
