Mesmerising river views, original features and a converted former boathouse are among the features that set this black-and-white gabled property apart.

On the market for the first time in nearly 40 years, Strand End is a detached Victorian home perched on the River Thames in Chiswick. The last remaining building of The New Devonshire Boatyard, it was the former home and boat workshop of master boatbuilder, Francis G Maynard, and played an integral part in boating activities on the river.

After purchasing the property in 1985, current owners set out to sympathetically restore the interiors, while also leaving some parts unchanged (such as the port holes in the front doors).

Offering approximately 3,135 sq ft of accommodation, it boasts five bedrooms, two reception rooms (one is bay-fronted with its own fireplace), an airy breakfast/dining room, and a family kitchen complete with an AGA and glistening views.

The principle bedroom, situated on the second floor, has a vaulted ceiling and dual aspect river views to Oliver's Island. Three further bedrooms can be found on this floor, one of which has a beautiful balcony overlooking the water.

The sale also includes a charming old boathouse, which is connected internally to the main house. Here, you'll find a large reception room with triple-aspect windows, a home office, two store rooms, a utility, and an additional bathroom. Situated alongside the river, it gives the illusion of being on the bow of a ship.

'An incredible house with magnificent river frontage and exceptional views across the water. The lateral space of the house is very unusual providing really versatile family accommodation in a magical setting,' says Christopher Bramwell, property agent at Savills.
