A real tear-jerker! Family home that played a leading role in a John Lewis Christmas ad is listed for £2.8m and has an entire floor dedicated to a classroom

Its emotional television adverts are hotly anticipated every Christmas and have become a modern indicator that the festive period is beginning. John Lewis spends millions of pounds on the ads, which are renowned for being beautifully filmed and in stunning locations and homes. Daniel Hutchins, head of sales at Savills Richmond, said: 'This handsome detached Victorian home is enviably situated within just a few hundred yards of a particularly scenic stretch of the River Thames and delightful Canbury Gardens. 'The house has a wonderful atmosphere, so beautifully captured in the much acclaimed John Lewis Christmas TV advert of 2014 - of penguin fame.' The detached Victorian home boasts high ceilings and generous windows that emphasise the elegant rooms and natural light. The Government has advised against moving home unless absolutely necessary during the coronavirus outbreak.  The space on the top level of the property could serve equally well as a vast master suite or be divided up into two or three bedrooms with a bathroom. The property is a few hundred yards from the River Thames and is near to both Richmond and Kingston town centres - the latter being only a few minutes walk away.
