Property flirt



Petticoats on show, here we go! A stunning house for those of you who like to perv at property. Guess within £5k of the asking price and get your stamp duty discounted on your next house purchase. Yes *cough*, really!

OK, you ready to roll?

This Queen Anne beauty is in a pretty prime location, within yards of the gates at Hampton Court Palace, and just across the bridge from the restaurants, bars, boutiques and shops of East Molesey. It fact, it overlooks the palace, and has links to the former home of Henry VIII that date back to 1530.

The Court Cottage, as she’s known, has three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a library, a kitchen (obvs!), and a cellar. It’s set over three floors, or four if you include a garage on the lower-lower ground floor. There are also three – yes people, three – courtyard gardens.


You enter at the first floor where you’ll find those two reception rooms and the kitchen. The period details are there in droves from the moment you step through the original front door on to the tiled marble floor – baluster-railed staircase, beautiful fireplaces, wood panelling, sash windows with shutters, fabulous high ceilings. *sigh* I love it all. Here take a peeky…





What’s that? You want to see more? No problemo. Upstairs or down?


Let’s go down to the library (it’s a biggie) and the study. There’s also a small sunroom, and the all-important cellar. Because we all need somewhere to lock up our vintage wine/children when they’re naughty (delete as appropriate).

Upstairs are the three bedrooms, including the imposing master which has its own dressing room. Check it out below. You could definitely swing a cat or three in there.



So then, any ideas on the price? Or shall I give you a couple more hints? Okay, what else do I know. The are two courtyards at the back (and one at the front), as well as parking in a large yard which is accessed via a private lane that leads to the Thames Motor Yacht Club.

And the price for this piece of masonry gorgeousness? Well, you tell me! Take your guess, click here and let me know if you get within £5k of the asking price.
