This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a significant development opportunity in a highly sought after and unique location within Hampton Wick. The site’s position adjacent to Bushy Park, the River Thames and proximity to Kingston town centre creates an unparalleled location.
The property comprises two blocks forming an L-shaped building arranged over four to seven storeys. Originally constructed in the mid- 1960’s as office accommodation the building was redeveloped in the mid -1990’s to provide student accommodation. The building was again reconfigured at ground level in 2015 to provide an additional common room and bike storage.
The two blocks which currently provide 218 student beds share almost identical and easily divisible floor plates with a central-core connecting the blocks.
The property benefits from the following:
- Two passenger lifts
- Secondary glazing
- Generous floor to ceiling height
- Excellent views over Bushy Park, Hampton Court
- Palace and Kingston-upon-Thames
- Car parking spaces to the rear of the property.
Hampton Wick is an attractive Thames-side area, with a village aesthetic located in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, buffered by the Royal Bushy Park to the west, Hampton Court Park to the south and the River Thames to the east. The area boasts unique riverside views from Kingston Bridge, Kingston Barge Walk and the numerous riverside cafes that line this quieter end of the Thames.
Across the bridge is Kingston-upon-Thames, a former ancient market town and now a thriving town centre providing a large choice of retail amenities with a range of both High Street and independent boutiques. In addition the riverside provides a lively frontage of bars and restaurants and treelined walks.
Bushy Park is famously home to Hampton Court Palace, a royal palace built in 16th century for King Henry VIII and now open to the public, Hampton Wick Royal Cricket Club, and The Royal Paddocks Allotments, established by King George V in 1921, are also located nearby.
