|Chiswick's Second Most Expensive House Goes On Sale|
Ten bedrooms, and bullet proof glass in enormous Grove Park property
The second most expensive property to go on sale in Chiswick has come on the market for £8.5 million.
The house in Grove Park Gardens, thought to be the largest property in Chiswick at 10,000 square feet, is being marketed by Winkworth.
It has ten bedrooms, six reception rooms, eight bathrooms, a swimming pool, and a very unusual feature for Chiswick - all the windows are made of bullet-proof glass.
There is a large private rear garden and staff quarters as well as substantial off-street parking.
The most expensive property ever sold in W4 was Walpole House along the Mall which sold for £12.5 million in 2008. Zachary House at nearby Strand-on-the Green, which sold for £6.8 million earlier this year had been in second place, but this latest property in Grove Park looks set to beat it.
Winkworths describes the house as "a very attractive proposition for any London buyer seeking a level of accommodation far above the norm. - See more here
It is believed that the house - which was once the home of Jack Beresford, CBE (1899-1977) a British rower who won five medals at five Olympic games in succession- is the largest property in Chiswick at 10,000 square feet.
Alastair Hilton of Winkworths commented: "This property will appeal to a central London buyer who wants to create one of the best houses in London. This size is probably unique in Chiswick and with the plot and potential, it is an opportunity that won't be repeated.
"The vendor has plans drawn up, but not submitted, for a 5000 square foot extension and remodelling of the front of the house. This would, in my opinion, create an incredible home," he added.
It is thought very likely that the property will attract interest from very wealthy overseas buyers.
