LOOKING for a home in Kingston that has 2 bedrooms, is close to local schools and in a friendly area with bags of community spirit?

Then you'll love this 1930s flat on Richmond Road, just off the historic Ham Parade on the edge of Kingston town centre.

This charming top-floor apartment has plenty of period features and boasts a horizon view of Richmond Park from its array of latticed windows.

At £375,000 is under the average price for a flat in the borough - £420,944 according to Rightmove - and attractive for young families with Tiffin Girls School, Fernhill School and the Kingston Academy close by.

But the best selling point for us is the flat's proximity to Ham Parade, a historic street in Kingston upon Thames which dates back to 1937 - and is still lined with family-owned and independent businesses.

From long-established traders such as M and J Hardware, to new arrivals Ham Food Centre and Parade's End Books, the area has a thriving shopping scene and sense of community spirit.

A highlight is the popular Ham Parade Market, which was started in 2017 and is open on the first Saturday of the month (except Januarys).

With plenty of local traders, street food and live music it's not one to miss.

There are also plenty of places for the community to meet including an Art group, Women's Institute and sustainability volunteering group (HUG), plus buzzing pubs the Dysart Arms and the New Inn.

Richmond and Kingston are on the doorstep and check out local history page Ham Is Where The Heart Is (HIWTHI) for articles on the area's fascinating past.

Today's featured property is on the market with Mervyn Smith and you can read more about it/make an enquiry HERE.
