About Alena

I live in Richmond with my two lovely little sons. I am fortunate to work from home; I am a linguist and run a private language tuition business. We really love our house and garden and enjoy as much of it as we can. Richmond is so beautiful and there is so much to do here we almost feel like we are on holiday all year round. We do however love to be by the sea side and we travel frequently.

Alena purchased this house in 2015

Why Alena chose South Richmond

I am very passionate about my house. It was built in 1924 by a famous local builder who built the place for himself and his family. With its unique architecture it differentiates its self from the surrounding properties. The inside space is beautifully laid out, with a cottage feel yet very Richmond like. It is absolutely ideal for a family life and guest entertainment.

I have restored the property to its own period beauty and paid particular attention to preserving all of its characteristics. I am very excited tI am now able to share my outcome with you. I hope you will feel at home in this beautiful place, just as much as we do...

What makes this house unique

The property is in an enviable location, within Richmond central zone, yet very private, away from the traffic. The garden is peaceful, private and completely quiet.

You will be able to walk everywhere and enjoy the beauty of Richmond in great comfort.

Outstanding Character Property

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property 6 months in advance and Alena was very responsive and on the ball.

The property is stunning and full of character, just minutes walk from all amenities and a perfect location for Richmond/Twickenham etc. Off street parking for at least 2 cars which is quite rare for the location. Rooms were all very spacious and the kitchen was fit for a chef. Will definitely return.

A beautiful home in the heart of Richmond – with an amazing host

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this wonderful home in Richmond was perfect.

Alena, the owner, was extremely helpful in answering any queries and making our stay as perfect as possible. Her home is truly beautiful – spacious, homely, tastefully decorated and with elegant furnishings. There is a gorgeous private garden, a lovely kitchen, plenty of parking space and lots of large windows allowing for natural sunlight.

We couldn't have been happier.

Highly recommended.

Awesome place outside London, but close to the Tube, shops and cafes.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay here. The kitchen has everything you need to cook meals. As well as a beautiful garden in the back yard. We were able to add fresh tomatoes and beets to our salads. The fresh vegetables were delicious.

The house is 5-8 minute walk to the Tube. The area around the Tube is filled with lots of shops, cafes and a grocery store.

Alena, responded to all questions very quickly before and during our trip.

We would defiantly stay here again if we come back to London!

Thank you Alena for sharing your home with us!

The property is lovely! We loved it right away! Great location and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 stayed at the house for 5 nights. We looked forward to coming home to the cozy kitchen and sitting around the table each night. There was plenty of room for our family, parking, and the garden was so peaceful. We appreciate Alena's quick replies and her attention to details.

Fantasic property. Great location and comfort.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property for a long weekend with family. It fitted all 8 of us comfortably (4 adults and 4 children). The property was very well presented and equipped and was well located for local attractions as well as for getting into central London. We would certainly recommend and would visit again.

A beautiful house with everything you need for a comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to stay in Alena's house. She has paid great attention to detail and the house is beautifully presented in every way. The beds were very comfortable and our girls were so excited by the London Bus bunk bed that they didn't want to go to sleep on our first night there. The house is nice and close to shops and restaurants, and the parking was extremely helpful as finding somewhere to park in Richmond is always difficult. We will definitely return again, and thank Alena and her boys for sharing their beautiful home with us.
