Fairfax Road is considered to be one of the best addresses
in Bedford Park, located in central Chiswick close to Turnham Green Terrace. Fairfax Road sits in the heart of Bedford Park, London's first garden suburb and Chiswick's most sought-after enclave. It is a short distance from the excellent shops, boutiques and restaurants of central Chiswick, and close to Turnham Green Underground station (District Line). Central London and Heathrow (A4/M4) are easily accessible, as are several leading independent schools.
Chiswick is a hugely popular and prosperous large suburb of West London located on the northern side of the River Thames, 6 miles (9.7 km) west of Charing Cross. It was historically an ancient parish in the county of Middlesex, with an agrarian and fishing economy. The name "Chiswick" is of Old English origin meaning "Cheese Farm" and originates from the riverside meadows and farms that are thought to have supported an annual cheese fair on Dukes Meadows up until the 18th century.
The style of property in Chiswick is varied offering everything from mansion flats along the High Road and on Sutton Court Road, to pretty Victorian cottages on the Glebe Estate. Large Victorian detached houses are found in Grove Park, and Arts & Crafts houses throughout Bedford Park. The River front, Chiswick Mall and Strand on the Green are lined with elegant Georgian houses ensuring that there is a fantastic variety of property throughout the local area.
Chiswick High Road, famous for its boulevard-style pavements, is full of quality independent outlets and an increasingly up-market selection of high street names which run from Hammersmith through to the Chiswick roundabout. Chiswick is a great place to shop and eat. Tesco, Sainsbury's, Waitrose and Marks and Spencer are all represented. Serving meat lovers are Macken Bros, Wyndham House and Ginger Pig butchers. Covent Garden Fishmongers do as their name suggests. Bayley & Sage have an amazing cheese counter and the Grove Park Deli on Fauconberg Road is also very popular. The Old Cinema provides Antique Vintage Retro Collections. Attractive fruit, vegetable and flower stalls add colour to the High Road. High Street banks, chemists, dry cleaners, beauty spas, fashion shops, off licences and general repair shops as well as many other outlets means there is no need to go elsewhere.
Among Chiswick's fine dining choices are Michelin-starred La Trompette on Devonshire Road and Le Vacherin on South Parade. High Road House and its Brasserie are part of the Soho House empire. Numerous high street restaurants such as Honest Burgers, Cote, Byrons and Pizza Express cater for family tastes.
Lord Burlington's Chiswick House is a picturesque, 18th-century Palladian mansion with gardens designed by William Kent. The birthplace of the English Landscape Movement, the gardens, with their statuary hedges and vistas, has had a £12 million makeover which includes a new café by architects Caruso St John. In recent years Chiswick House grounds have played host to Soho House group's House Festival, enticing the great and the good of the media industry with performers who are both nationally renowned and locally resident.
Bedford Park, London's first garden suburb, was built between 1875 and 1886 as part of the Arts & Crafts revival. Victorian property developer Jonathan Carr instructed lead architect Richard Norman Shaw (alongside EJ May, W Wilson and EW Godwin) in the building of a collection of houses and studios that now form a conservation area and are for the most part Grade II listed. Many of these houses feature elements of styling from William Morris, to whose legacy is dedicated the William Morris Society at Kelmscott House on Upper Mall.
Set back from the road, with distinctive palisade fencing, is
this fine example of a Bedford Park family house. It has been extensively renovated and reconfigured by the current owners to maximise living and entertaining space while maintaining a wealth of original features.
The ground floor provides versatile entertaining and family
living including an elegant and spacious double reception
room with a large bay window and a window seat. The
impressive kitchen / dining room provides an abundance of natural light with doors out to the stunning garden.
The garden is one of the largest in Bedford Park; there is a
decking area to the front and a fabulous secluded lawned
garden at the back with a summer house which provides
electricity. The lower ground floor includes a large utility room
with plenty of storage and a cloakroom.
The first floor houses a large master bedroom with a dressing
area and a fabulous en suite bath / shower room. There is a
further bedroom currently being used as a study which looks
out onto the garden, and a family bathroom.
The second floor provides a further three double bedrooms and a spacious shower room. The third bedroom at the back has a mezzanine level which has been cleverly designed for a children's play area or a sleeping platform.
