Richmond Hill is one of Richmond's premier locations and this property sits at the crest with the most outstanding views. The property is within walking distance of Richmond's bustling river frontage, the town centre and in particular the 2500 acres of open space in Richmond Park.
Richmond town centre benefits from most of the recognised High Street retailers, the famous Richmond Theatre, two cinemas and a range of restaurants and bars.
Fast access to the City and West End can be achieved from Richmond main line (London Waterloo) and underground stations.
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 5 kms (3 miles) from the house providing easy access to London Heathrow Airport and the south of England but also into the West End and City.
The London Borough of Richmond-upon-Thames has some of the finest state, independent and international schools in the country.
An imposing Grade II Listed period property providing over 9,500 sq ft of flexible space over 5 floors with all principal rooms enjoying stunning views over the Terrace Gardens towards Ham House and the River Thames and from the back of the house towards the City of London.
An attendant Coach House of over 2,200 sq ft (currently office use) with parking for at least 8 cars would be included in the sale. The buildings now require refurbishment.
We are advised that this property was built in the early 19th Century (during the reign of George IV) and converted circa 1947 into a number of apartments. The principal rooms located on the first floor provide exceptional lateral space extending over the full width and depth of the building and features five sets of French windows which afford direct access to a full width balcony from which the magnificent views can be enjoyed. It is not just the view from the front of the house that amaze.
The views from the back are towards the City of London and visible on a clear day are the Post Office Tower, The Gherkin and Canary Wharf.
This property comes onto the market for the first time in almost 100 years and provides a unique opportunity for a discerning buyer to acquire a fine family home with the potential to create independent accommodation for staff/relative (subject to planning consents).
Such is the impressive nature of the spectacular views towards the Thames that artists of great renown including Gainsborough, Turner and Reynolds immortalised the vista on canvas and even Wordsworth waxed lyrical on the subject.
The importance of these far reaching views has long been recognised to the extent that they were protected by Parliament in 1902 following a campaign by Cromwell Stephens, a distant relation of the current owners.
Set within a few minutes walk from the main property is a delightful two storey Coach House currently used as offices and extending to some 2,200 sq ft. Many fascinating original features still remain as an historic reminder of its former use and the property boasts a walled courtyard which provides parking for at least 8 cars.
Upper ground floor studio, lower ground floor studio, upper ground and lower ground floor maisonette, full width first floor apartment, two upper two floor maisonettes, garden. Coach House (currently offices) with courtyard parking for numerous cars.
