At first glance, you might think art deco, but this Andrew G. Alexander-designed detached house in London W4 is actually an example of the Modern Movement, which came to the fore after the end of the second world war.
Not only is it a detached propery, it comes with a huge 180ft garden in the Grove Park area of Chiswick, not far from the River Thames. It was designed in 1946 by Andrew G. Alexander ARIBA for his own occupation, but it has now been made even more modern, the current owners adding a contemporary timber-clad studio, for better or worse.
To the front of the property is a planted garden and some off-street parking. Walk inside and you’ll find a decent-sized reception room, a study, a downstairs cloakroom, and a kitchen with separate dining room, both of which have access to the garden. The first floor contains a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. All of the bedrooms have built-in storage.
That annexe? It’s a detached studio building just off the kitchen, and is fully equipped with heating etc. It also has an en-suite shower and WC, so if you have guests, stick them in there. Plenty of rear garden, as we mentioned, complete with a patio, a large lawn, established borders and mature trees. There is also a garden room tucked away at the end.
A desirable house in a desirable area, so obviously not cheap. You’ll need to dig deep to find £1,650,000 if you want it.
