History

Russells House is a Grade II Listed building steeped in history and local connections. Originally built in circa 1718 for the Dowager Countess of Essex. The house was built in adjacent to Cassiobury Park, the seat of the Earl of Essex. It was built in a style very similar to that of The Grove Hotel and Country Estate which is opposite and less than 500m away.

The house has been a residence for the Mayor of London, the Dowager Countess of Essex, the Maharajah of Baroda and a Home Guard (Dad's Army) searchlight battalion during the Second World War. General Sir Charles Colville who served on Wellington's staff at Waterloo left through the front door on his way to battle.

The house remains a Grade II Listed building. Numerous features of the original building have been retained. These include the impressive main staircase, large bay windows overlooking the gardens and ornate coving.


The property also has deep old fashioned cellars and associated with this, is access to a large underground storage area in the old brick ovens of the house.

Local Authority: Watford Borough Council.
