An interesting place that mixes the old with the new – this 1930s Turret House in Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey.
The house was built in 1934, replacing the Tudor Coombe Wood House, which had become too expensive to maintain. It was replaced by a house very much of the era, modernism of the 1930s variety.
Not that the house is exactly faithful to the original, the current owners have modernised and extended the property, throwing in some modern-day fittings that mix it with original features and architecture, boosted further by an exclusive setting on the private Coombe House Estate.
In terms of specifics, the accommodation is arranged over two floors only of approx 3,132 sq ft, with four bedroom suites and four receptions rooms, along with a fully fitted study and a large kitchen/breakfast room. There are also gardens around the entire perimeter for additional privacy, as well as a separate garage with wine cellar and ‘ample storage’ to the side of the house.
Much more detail (and images) on the listing, with an asking, as you might expect, at a rather hefty £2,197,500.
