£2.85m Swiss Chalet By Thames Has A Heated Beach

A Swiss-style chalet with frontage to the River Thames near Hampton Court Palace features a party room with a heated indoor beach, amongst other unusual features.

The largely Japanese-styled interior also offers a lush Japanese water garden with Koi Carp crossed by a bridge made of Samurai swords, a kitchen with five fridges, bespoke sliding glass double doors encrusted with Swarovski crystals, Japanese style pod beds that include a body massage system and gold parquet flooring throughout.

The four bedroom grade II listed, 5,000 sq ft chalet which is believed to have been imported from Switzerland around 1880 is being sold by Savills on the instructions of LPA Receivers. The agent’s particulars, however, suggest that not all of the property may have planning consent for residential use.

Normally, it might be expected that such a unique house in a prime riverside location on offer for what seems a reasonable £2.85m would be snapped up. However, the property remains unsold after having been on sale for over a year. So, while there is something to be said for making a house stand out from the crowd in order to sell it, it may be the case that the unusual features of this house make it stand out that bit too much.
