Property of the week: Tudor house once owned by Princess Diana's great-grandfather

29th Apr 2021 | Property of the Week
Each week Kingston Nub News features a different property on the market in our area.
Today's property has a famous connection as it was once owned by Princess Diana's great-grandfather, the 6th Earl Spencer.
It is also steeped in history, as this three-bedroom Tudor cottage is one of the last remaining on Coombe Hill - an area that incidentally used to be owned by another member of Diana's family, the 1st Earl Spencer.
Despite a recent upgrade and refurbishment including re-wiring, re-plumbing and new oak floors, the property retains its historic character and parts of it still date back to the 1600s.
The house has retained many of its period features including leaded light casement windows with a classic diagonal pattern, two chimney stacks, an inglenook fireplace and vaulted ceilings.
It also comes with a garage, a fully insulated roof and south-facing garden with a high hedge to the front of the house for added privacy.
The property is located on Coombe Lane West and surrounded by the beautiful landscaped gardens of the Coombe Hill Estate, a private and sought-after residential area between Wimbledon and Kingston.
This house has an asking price of £1.95 million and is marketed by Featherstone Leigh.
It was first put on the market back in December and made headlines with its royal connection.
Back then it was marketed by Knight Frank and had a slightly higher asking price of £2.25 million.
