Find your very own pleasure palace in Hampton Court

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 1:43 pm

13 Manor Road, East Molesey

With the Hampton Court Palace Festival, returning for its 20th year next week (14th June), and the palace playing host to other events, including the annual RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July and the Olympic road cycling time trials and races at the end of the month and 1st August; Hampton Court is set to take centre stage this summer.

Robert Butterworth of Jackson-Stops & Staff in Teddington comments on why Hampton Court is not just popular with its annual concert and festival-goers: “The 750 acres of parkland surrounding Hampton Court, combined with its riverside location, give the area a very open, rural feel – a quality much appreciated by buyers.

“Hampton Court is very popular with people moving out of central London. There is a good choice of properties. Tudor and Georgian houses are found close to the palace and along the river, with spacious 1920s and 1930s Arts & Crafts-style houses in nearby East Molesey, with newer homes found behind them.

“The Arts & Crafts houses have 100ft-long gardens and are ideal for families, costing from just over £1million to £1.5million. In nearby Thames Ditton there are blocks of 1950s flats that appeal to first-time buyers. One-beds start at £200,000 and two-bed maisonettes at £250,000. Classic mid-Victorian two-up, two-down cottages in the streets leading down to the river rarely come on to the market and go for £400,000 upwards. Most investors buy flats, and periods where they are not let are non-existent.”

Jackson-Stops currently have two studio apartments for sale on Bridge Street in Hampton Court priced at £157,500 and £159,950, a five bedroom Georgian house in Hampton for £825,000 and a five bedroom Victorian House in East Molesey for £900,000.

Own a slice of Royal Navy history

Filed under: Latest News — Four Communications @ 8:36 am

Two historically significant Georgian houses in the Royal Navy dockyard at Sheerness, whose future has been secured by the Spitalfields Historic Buildings Trust, are now for sale through Jackson-Stops & Staff.

Sheerness on the Isle of in Kent has been a defensive location since Tudor times, and served as a first line of defence for the River Thames and London. The Royal Navy used the dockyard as one of their main bases until its decommissioning in 1960. After a period of uncertainty, the future of these historic residential quarters was secured after several years of campaigning by the Spitalfields Historic Buildings Trust. Designed by two of the country’s most eminent engineers – Edward Holls and George Ledwell Taylor – it remains one of the finest examples of Britain’s naval power.

The Boatswain’s House is a grade-II listed building, with room for five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a double- reception room, dining room and a spacious walled garden. This late Georgian period house has a traditional symmetrical double front and detailing. The house would traditionally have been one of the most important houses in the dockyard, and the decorative detail in the main reception rooms, whilst not ornate, is a reminder of the significance of the house. The Boatswain’s House offers a great opportunity for restoration within its listed status.

6 Naval Terrace is also grade-II* listed and of the late Georgian style. It has four bedrooms, three reception rooms and a basement with stunning original features including a flagstone floor. There is also a self-contained apartment at the back of the walled garden in a converted stable-block. This light, spacious property has plenty of room and is in excellent condition, having been fully renovated in a way that not only respects the original architectural details of the property, but gives it a new lease of life for the 21st century.

Both properties have good local transport connections, whilst there are excellent local amenities on the Isle of Sheppey, just over 50 miles from London.

Dawn Carritt, director of Jackson-Stops & Staff and an expert in the restoration of Georgian buildings, said: “These properties, thankfully rescued by the Spitalfields trust, are part of Britain’s history. It is rare to have an opportunity to buy a significant piece of naval history. They are fine examples of Georgian architecture. As local landmarks, it is great to see these much-loved properties being given a new lease of life.”
