Looking for a home in Kingston upon Thames? Nub News has you covered.

Our Kingston area property section has the best listings in the borough, and every week we bring you a new property with an interesting feature.

Today we're highlighting this rarely available 2-bedroom terraced house in Norbiton on the market with Surbiton estate agents Laurels.

While it may be located on the "quiet cul-de-sac" of Norbiton Common Road, this family home is just a few minutes away from Declan Rice's former training ground, the YMCA Dickerage Sports and Community Centre.

The England defender and former Kingston resident has spoken fondly of his time at the community centre which offers free activities and facilities to our borough's youth.

In a 2019 interview, Rice told presenter Alex Scott that the centre was his "second home" and Centre Manager Daniel Slocombe was "pretty much like a second dad."

"The moment I could probably walk he [Daniel] was always chucking a football at me," the West Ham player said.

Rice still visits the YMCA Dickerage and is recognised there as a "local hero" with photos of him and his cousins playing football on the walls.

As well as being close to the Dickerage Centre, today's featured home is also near Kingston rec, two local primary schools, and the parade of shops on Kingston Road.

Inside, the house is light and airy and rooms include a kitchen-diner with living room connected by sliding doors, a family bathroom, and 2 double bedrooms.

There's also an upstairs study/lounge room which could be converted into a bedroom, and medium-sized private garden with space for outdoor games and entertaining.

With a guide price of £550,000, the home is almost two thirds less than the average property price for the borough

- £756, 211, according to Rightmove.
