Rare opportunity to acquire substantial bespoke home in Coombe Ridings

Design for 6 bedroom luxury house in Coombe Ridings London England

New build opportunity in Coombe Estate

We are delighted to be able to offer this excellent opportunity in Coombe Ridings – one of Coombe’s most sought after private roads with its own exclusive residents association – where we have secured for development a peaceful, gently sloping 0.45 acre plot backing onto the Water Gardens.

Subject to Planning

  • 6,000 sq ft +
  • 3/4 reception rooms
  • 6 or more bedrooms
  • Bespoke cinema room
  • Heated swimming pool
  • Designer kitchen 
  • Wine cellar
  • 3m high ceilings
  • Audio visual system
  • Double garage
  • Large south facing garden
  • 0.45 acre plot
  • Backing onto Coombe Golf Club
  • Views of Wimbledon Common, London and The Shard

The slope of the plot lends itself perfectly to the construction of a substantial home of approximately 6,500 or 8,000 sq.ft,  the latter featuring an airy lower ground floor to take full advantage of the natural slope.  The house would of course be built to the highest standards and finished to the purchaser’s specification.

With a south east facing garden the plot offers beautiful views across Wimbledon Common towards London and the distant Shard. In close proximity to some excellent grammar schools, it is within walking distance of Richmond Park and Coombe Hill Golf Course.

Coombe is indeed a highly desirable area and very private area, where properties are rarely available. We’ve designed and built – or rebuilt -perhaps more than our fair share here and really do know the locale. The illustrations show a suggested design in keeping with the area and for which planning permission should be readily available.

Opportunities such as this are rare.

Please contact us now on +44 208 144 9730 if you are interested in having something similar built for you.

More About Coombe

Coombe is a beautiful, leafy and countrified piece of London lying within the borders of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, just to the south west of the capital.

To live in Coombe is to reside in London and simultaneously have all the advantages of a countryside setting, only some 20 minutes by train from the city centre. The area is resplendently green as one has the expanse of Richmond Park on one side and of Wimbledon Common on the other.

As a result, this enclave presents great privacy, seclusion and sanctuary in the midst of a very convenient area with the enviable shops and amenities of Richmond, Kingston and Wimbledon close by and the West End and City within easy and direct reach.

Please contact us now on +44 208 144 9730 if you are interested in having something similar built for you.

5,000 sq.ft luxury house in Wimbledon, Surrey

I’m delighted to announce that despite the exceptionally wet weather, this 5000 sq. ft. Edwardian Arts and Crafts style house is nearing completion in Wimbledon Village. Designed to replicate a classic Wimbledon house with painstaking attention to detail, the house is being built complete with period sharp sand mortar, feature quoins, hand-made copper feature dome and genuine Bath stone.

Whilst the outside looks like a classic period property, the interior features clean crisp contemporary lines and boasts a high spec finish with the latest AV – everything you need for modern living. Not only that, but the finished home will be fully compliant with Code 4 for sustainable living.

We have other land opportunities readily available and would love to build something similar for you.
