Property description

Tenure: Leasehold

This stunning, late 15th century building located just off Richmond Green was built to house the personal possessions and clothes of the Royal Family.

The Wardrobe is now a magnificent family home, the end of the terrace and benefits from spacious and flexible reception rooms, three bedrooms, a study and a large private garden. The rear garden extends to approximately 100ft and features a summer house, pond and an ancient Judas tree and is bordered by one of the original palace walls, believed to have once provided access to the Palace Chapel. The front of the property has private off-street parking.

This exquisite architectural gem and Grade I listed building is of particular historical importance being virtually all that remains on Henry VII’s once-magnificent Richmond Palace. Richmond Palace was a favourite residence of Queen Elizabeth I, and it was in The Wardrobe that her clothes were stored. She needed a cupboard the size of a building to house everything and in the roof alone, it is said that 2,000 of her dresses were found in large chests. Richmond Palace was built on the site of the old medieval palace of Sheen, a Royal residence from the 13th century, and was destroyed by fire in 1499 but rebuilt by 1510 as a grander palace, renamed after the King's earldom of Richmond in Yorkshire. Among the Tudor palace's former residents are Henry VIII, particularly during the early days of his reign; Catherine of Aragon and Charles I. Today, all that remains of the Tudor original is the front wall, part of the Palace's courtyard, and heavy timberwork from the 1500s. In Queen Anne's reign, The Wardrobe underwent its most extensive renovation, undertaken by Sir Christopher Wren, it is believed. Rooms were lined with panelling and shutters installed. The Wardrobe was then divided into three buildings in 1957 by the Crown Estate.

From Old Palace Yard, you are within easy reach of all the amenities of Richmond town centre. This offers a wide range of shops, from independent boutiques in cobbled lanes to leading High Street brands, along with a Whole Foods Market and large Waitrose. Richmond’s theatres and cinemas are all close by, as are a selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs.
