Road: Park Street

Property: 1, 2, 3, 4

This is a short cul de sac off Queen's Road and the street is not made up.

Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 4: At the time of the Teddington Society Survey in the 1970s there were a pair of semi-detached houses of yellow brick with slate roofs, splayed bay windows at ground floor level and sash windows above. No. 1 was known as Lily Villa with a front door at the side with a garage. No. 2, painted, was known as Ellington Villa and joined on to a brick and slate roofed church building with slated porch which was originally The London City Mission Hall. These buildings had been used in the 1970s by Ion Tech. Limited.

The church building had been empty for a while, but was converted and restored by Martin Grant Homes, together with no. 2 into what the estate agents call "three prestigious 4-bedroom houses". Nos. 1 and 2 look at present very much as they had been in the 1970s, except they are now both painted brick. There have been additions to the church building, such as a second porch and the brick work has been cleaned. "Prices from £1,300,000." (October 2013).

No. 1 would seem to be also part of the Martin Grant Homes scheme (as well as houses on the other side of the street). The Sales pitch for the refurbished property reads "Within a rare chapel conversion on the edge of majestic Bushy Park, Park Street offers a West London lifestyle - secluded, exclusive and inspiring. Situated on a quiet, private road in desirable Teddington, Park Street's three unique new homes are the perfect base from which to enjoy Central London, inviting picturesque parklands and a vibrant local town centre. With beautifully designed interiors finished to contemporary specifications, the homes at Park Street represent all that life should be. Key Points:

Beautifully restored chapel, Situated in a quiet, private road in Teddington, Short walk from the vibrant town centre, Close to Bushy Park, the second largest of London's Royal Parks."
