About adele Ottinger

I love renovating houses as a break from my day job as a financial analyst. I like travelling around the world and have been lucky enough to have had many adventures. I like entertaining as long as someone else cooks! I have a passion for film and have been involved in a number of award winning shorts – so maybe a feature film one day.

adele Ottinger purchased this house in 2010

Why adele Ottinger chose Richmond & Kew

I was trying to buy the much smaller house next door to rent out. At auction I started bidding for this one never thinking I would buy it. It was nearly impossible to even get to the front door due to the wilderness, and was derelict with the house seeming much smaller as it was completely covered in ivy. I love it, as one magazine photographer commented, it is the kind of house you hope you end up living your days in. I cannot stop wanting to improve and add to it further. It is next to the old pump station tower, which fortunately is not used anymore, and which gives it a unique look.

What makes this house unique

Whilst being in a suburban location, it feels semi rural in its location especially at the back and is so close to many great seeming to be in the middle of the countryside the property is easily accessible to and from London (20 mins by train or 30-40 minutes by car) . It is also ideal for visits to Windsor, Ascot, Henley and for all those summer pursuits such as Royal Ascot and The Regatta.

Wonderful house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 5 while we were searching for permanent accommodations. The town of Hampton had everything we needed and the train and bus station was only about .25 miles away. The owner, Adele, was super nice and even had a few groceries waiting in the frig when we arrived which was so nice after our red eye flight into London. I would highly recommend this house!!!
