Lovely house in Kingston, an ancient market town and one of London's royal boroughs. The house is a five minute walk from beautiful Richmond deer park, Europe's largest walled park, and 10 minutes from the River Thames. It's a 30 minute train journey to London Waterloo, with the South Bank's theatres, galleries and the London Eye.
Good access to loads of local activities and attractions eg - Hampton Court Palace, Chessington World of Adventures etc. Plus, obviously, London.
