When you think of London properties, you’d be forgiven for imagining large apartment blocks, terraced homes and grand townhouses – that’s why The Old Burlington in Chiswick is such a rare find.

The Grade II listed property looks more like a beautiful country pub than a city dwelling – and that’s because it was.

Located near the River Thames, the charming historic home used to be public house The Burlington Arms which dates back to the 15th century. The Old Burlington takes up around half of the old pub and now offers a cosy family home.

The black and white, half-timber property is actually one of the oldest buildings in Chiswick, reflected in its many period features, including vertical wooden trusses and beams.

Inside is a spacious double reception room, kitchen, dining space and three large bedrooms – one of which sits in the attic space directly under the roof.

There is a secluded walled garden at the back of the house, with a pretty patio area, great for alfresco dining.

Savills property agent, Euan Rollo, said the home is ‘an enchanting historic house, full of character within moments of the River Thames’.

This property is available for £1,250,000 through Savills.
