Hotham Hall was built in 1913 as a community hall and later became a venue for concerts and political meetings, hosting the Rolling Stones and The Who, and former Prime Ministers, Sir Winston Churchill and Sir Anthony Eden. It was converted into eight apartments in the 1990s and was designed and finished to an exacting standard throughout.
This particular apartment was updated to a design by murphy | davé architects. It is located at the southern corner and has the largest footprint of any in the building. Entry is via the residents parking area and to a large communal hallway, leading in turn, to the apartment and a private entrance hall.
This opens to a galleried landing area, once used by the owner as a dining room, which overlooks the central, double-height reception. The apartment is designed with excellent spatial ingenuity, set over a series of stepped levels with sliding and pocket doors offering the versatility of openness and privacy when needed. Just off the living space are two rooms, one used as a gym, the other a study which is revealed by a full-height, sliding door clad in a patchwork of red hide.
The kitchen lies opposite and is designed by Bulthaup, with appliances by Miele and Neff. Next to it is a dining space, set beneath double-height glazing which opens externally to cedar decking and steps up to the garden.
The bedrooms are arranged around the central living space, with two in the north-eastern corner and the master at the southern end. This is accessed from the gallery via a raised, walk-through dressing room and has a large en suite bathroom, with walk-in shower and fittings by Vola. Steps descend to the bedroom area; a wonderful space surrounded by glazing, overlooking a reflection pool and with views to the garden.
Sharing this southerly aspect is an entertainment room, with a Kodac-painted projector wall and elegant Crittall-style doors that open to the garden and an immaculate seating area.
Inside, flooring is a combination of limestone, oak, and leather in the master bedroom, with underfloor heating throughout and trench heaters beneath the glazed aspects.
The gardens have been designed to be incredibly low-maintenance, with Japanese-style gravel sections, and to provide year round interest with evergreens such as olive trees, Mediterranean palms and bamboo, and Sumac for the warmer months.
Hotham Hall is located close to the shops, restaurants and transport facilities of Putney High Street. Wandsworth Park, Barnes and the Wetlands nature reserve, Bishops Park and Hurlingham Park are all within easy reach.
There are a number of great pubs, bars and cafes in the area including family-owned restaurant Ma Goa, craft beer shop Ghost Whale and The Duke’s Head by Putney’s idyllic riverside.
A little further afield, is Southside Wandsworth shopping centre and the newly introduced Ram Quarter, along the River Wandle, which hosts events with Backyard Cinema and is home to speciality coffee shop, Story Coffee. Barnes ‘village’ is also close by for a further selection of restaurants, cafe’s and shops.
