A sumptuous, five bedroom, semi-detached house, nestled in a tranquil corner of the idyllic Queen Mary's Place development, a truly cosmopolitan community in Roehampton, a stone's throw from Richmond Park and ideally located for the many attractions of Putney, Barnes, Richmond and Wimbledon.
Stepping into the generous hallway, our eyes are drawn to the abundant natural light emanating from the kitchen-dining room, the heart of the downstairs area of the house. With light streaming through the impressive skylight spreading a feeling of warm conviviality, this versatile space is perfect for family meals or just for relaxing. Folding doors lead out from the kitchen on to the attractive private garden. Adjacent to the kitchen, leading to the house's side entrance is a practically sized utility/laundry room and, completing the ground floor, an elegant reception room, a generous space for entertaining or relaxing, assured of plentiful natural light by its dual aspect windows.
The first floor boasts the glamorous master bedroom, with dressing room and marble lined bathroom providing a feeling of everyday luxury. A second bedroom with en suite bathroom and a useful study - a room with a view - complete the picture.
Three more distinctive bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, as well as a separate family bathroom, are to be found on the house's second floor.
The generous drive provides off street parking for two vehicles. For train and tube connections, there is a bus stop directly opposite Queen Mary's Place offering a frequent service to Hammersmith, Richmond, and Putney, including Barnes and Putney railway stations with their connections into Waterloo and points beyond.
As well as having Richmond Park on the doorstep, a short walk takes you to Putney Heath and on to Wimbledon Common - with the allure of a pleasant, relaxing stroll to Wimbledon village. Or for more vigorous exercise there is a well-equipped, residents only gym.
Queen Mary's Place is particularly family friendly, with children of all ages enjoying the sense of community. The area benefits from a number of excellent schools, both primary and secondary. The closest, Ibstock Place, a well regarded, high-achieving independent school is just around the corner. The Roehampton University campus, situated on the other side of Roehampton Lane, also lends an appealing, lively buzz to the area.
Beyond the numerous obvious benefits, the unique appeal of the development quickly becomes apparent. Firstly, the roads are a calm place with virtually no traffic, a boon for parents of young children, who play happily outdoors year-round - again quite a rare feature in modern-day London. Along with numerous eye-pleasing architectural features, there are two formal gardens: A beautifully maintained rose garden and a sunken garden with fountain, overlooked by the magnificent 18th century, Grade I listed Roehampton House.

This feel good factor extends to the immediate environs, indeed the whole of Queen Mary's Place, which provide a kind of decompression zone from the world outside. All in all, this might just be southwest London's best kept secret....
