Old Palace Place occupies an exceptional position with open views over historic Richmond Green. The natural beauty of this position has remained virtually unchanged since its association with the Mediaeval and Tudor Palace on The Green occupied by various sovereigns from the 14th Century. The setting provides a quiet environment yet within moments of the extensive facilities of the town centre. Transport links into Central London are provided by the mainline (Waterloo) and underground (District Line) train services from Richmond station, approximately a 5 minute walk from the house and a comprehensive bus network operating through the town. The major road networks nearby include the A316/M3 allowing access into Central London or out to the South West of England, the A4/M4 approximately 3 miles from the house providing easy access to Heathrow Airport and the West Country but also into the West End and City.
This fabulous home has elegantly proportioned rooms throughout exuding an
atmosphere of considerable style. Generous landings to each of the upper floors and an
imposing oak staircase with carved banisters provide the centrepiece of the house and from
here access to the principal rooms.
On the ground floor is the fabulous dining room with a Gothic fireplace and stone mantel, dated 1655. To the back of the house a comfortable painted panelled sitting room
with direct views to the garden.

uninterrupted views of Richmond Green and allowing an abundance of natural light into the room. This is perfectly complemented by the oakfloor. Two fireplaces with mantelpieces an elegant
ceiling height further add to the appeal of the
Two of the top floor bedrooms have been created from the original billiard room since 1919 and so
have partially vaulted ceilings.
Also on this floor, to the back of the house, is a delightful bedroom with direct views towards the
garden. Dark wood timbers dating from the Tudor period are visible both in this room and on the
landing of the second floor.
In recent years the current owners have made several improvements most notably the creation
of a large family room, and a gym room as well as extensive refurbishment of the kitchen.
The garden is beautifully landscaped and remarkably secluded for such a central Richmond
location. Well established box hedging, a magnificent Magnolia Grande Flora, well
maintained lawn and an abundance of colour in the Spring and Summer months in particular are
compelling characteristics of this delightful garden.
An even more private lower garden provides further interest. The garage and hard standing area
provides off street parking for at least 4 cars.
