The Renovation Game: Kingston Upon Thames, Surrey
Wednesday 23 January 2008
What's for sale?
A four-bedroom detached house, suited to those hoping to put their stamp on an existing family home. It offers the prospect of rental income, as a self-contained granny flat is attached. The house has a drawing room, diner, kitchen, bathroom, en-suite shower and double garage. The secluded garden could be gorgeous, but is in need of work and pruning.
From outside, this light pink house looks like the finished article. Inside, you'll see that it needs a lot of redecoration and new carpets, and a new bathroom and kitchen. Both residences need rewiring. The one-bed annexe has its own entrance, but access could be created from main house.
It's in a private estate opposite Coombe Golf Course, in an affluent part of Surrey with plenty of shops, restaurants and schools and with great transport links. You'd need to spend about £250,000, but it could then be worth £2,250,000.
