What do you love most about your home?
Compared to other 1 bedroom flats that are all on the same level, we loved the fact this was split and had a separate kitchen/sitting room. The layout makes it feel more like a house than a flat and feels much bigger because of it.
It gets a lot of light too, always bright and airy, even in the winter.
Being a small block with just two flats, it feels more like our building than a building we share with a lot of people.
The garden is great too, especially in the summer and especially in this location, there aren't a lot of above commercial flats in the area with outside space like ours.
There is a lot of storage, 1 bed flats typically don't come with a lot. The outdoor bike shed, a cupboard in the communal area as well as cupboards in the flat make it easy to keep the place clutter free.
2) Why are you moving?
We're moving to ladder up. We've been here for 5 years now and in the borough for 8. I've been in London 15 years and have recently changed career meaning living in London isn't quite as important as it once was. We're looking to move out a bit now and buy a house. If we could afford to buy a house around the corner we would ! We don't want to leave the area at all!
3) What do you love about the area?
We have the best of both worlds. We get city living with great connections to Central London, with all the restaurants and pubs Church St has to offer literally a stone's throw from our front door. The pubs in the area are some of the best pubs I've been to in London, and I've lived all over. The Crown in St Margarets for their burgers, The White Swan for sitting outside in the summer, watching the dogs play in the river, the Eel Pie for rugby days, the White Cross in Richmond for the fire in winter, the Roebuck on Richmond Hill for the view, The Marlborough for the beer garden... need I say more!
And on the flip side we're just seconds from the tow path that takes you all the way to Richmond via Marble Hill Park. We love to spend the weekends walking the dog along the river, crossing on Hammertons Ferry to either continue to Richmond Park at Ham Gate, or walk the other direction passed Ham House to Teddington lock. We're completely spoilt for green space here.

The property is superbly located within a short walk of Twickenham station, offering good connections into Central London. The area is well served by a vibrant array of shops, pubs, cafes and amenities, as well as fashionable bars and restaurants. The River Thames is also just a short walk away with riverside eateries and the tow path for walking and cycling through the nearby open spaces of beautiful Marble
