Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Richmond & Kew - Melliss Avenue
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, brand new high end apartment in West London
The modern luxury of Melliss Avenue, with its spot-lit ceilings, sleek colour palate and large light-filled rooms, hints at its owners’ jet set lifestyle. Located on a meander of the river Thames, it’s part of a leafy new-build village community in the heart of affluent Kew, where green spaces abound. From here, effortlessly enjoy a day out to the exquisite Hampton Court, erstwhile home to Henry VIII, or take a Skiff upstream to Marble Hill House. Back home, indulge in Melliss Avenue’s deluxe indoor swimming pool and gym, or relax on your private terrace.
Your hosts are ex-music industry pros who’ve moved to Spain to chase the sun. But their Richmond pied-a-terre is rippling with relics from their rock n roll days, like the signed Sex Pistols artwork and an oil painting by The Clash’s bass player. When in London they love taking idyllic towpath walks along the Thames and walking their dog in the many local green spots.
Step into the breezy open plan living space and slide your socks on the marble and wooden floor. Recline on one of the deep, brown sofas and curl up with a magazine, or rustle up a treat in the spotless kitchen, with its high-end appliances and luxe materials. Pull up a pew at the dining table, where six can sup surrounded on three sides by floor-to-ceiling windows, or wander to the garden terrace with a wine glass in hand. Over in the double bedroom a teddy bear’s picnic and Russian dolls are arranged on two elegantly-lit display shelves. A second bedroom, a single this time, is more boyish with a blue palate, and a signed Oasis photo in pride of place on the wall. The family bathroom is a picture of minimalist luxury with stone coloured shelving and square porcelain units. Once you’re done a-roaming, head to the stunning master suite, with its understated taupe fittings and wall-mounted TV, and recline on the king-sized bed, or take a dip in the pristine ensuite, with its large bath, walk-in shower and mirror walls.
Enjoy a postcard-perfect wander down the Thames, which is just two minutes’ walk away, or sample some pastoral peace in nearby Richmond Park. The world famous Kew Gardens are also in walking distance, and a visit to the historic Ham House makes for a great day trip. Get to central London in 30 minutes via the nearby Kew Gardens station.
