We are just 7 minutes' walk to Richmond overland and underground station with connections all over London and the SW. Richmond gets the best of both worlds: it is close enough to central London (15 min by fast train to Waterloo) to be a viable base for visiting/working in the centre but also enjoys some of London's greenest attractions in terms of parks and recreational. There is a very traditional and yet friendly vibe with lovely local pubs, child-friendly cafes and shops and some very special spots of historical interest such as Richmond Hill, the Terraced Gardens, Kew Gardens, Ham House and Richmond riverside. Also great playgrounds and children's play centres for rainy days.
Richmond mainline station is an approximately 7 minute walk with fast overland trains to central, North and East London and district line underground as well as connections to Clapham Junction and out to Surrey. Kew Gardens station is an approximately 20 minute walk in the opposite direction and offers a quieter commute in London. Several bus stops on Kew Road offer 24 hour travel across London and also
Other Things to Note
There is a small supermarket very close by on Kew Road (Tesco Metro) as well as cleaners able to provide a full laundry service. I can arrange for a cleaner/housekeeper (£12 per hour). She is also able to provide ironing services.
