Description

Kent House is one of London's finest riverside residences, built in 1760, providing 1,005 sq m (10,817 sq ft) of unrivalled accommodation, allowing for large landscaped gardens, swimming pool/leisure facilities, and secure private parking.
Kent House has important architectural details from several renovations. The earliest part of the house was built in the 1760s on the skeleton of a previous house that had existed on the site from 1710. A second major reconstruction took place in the 1780s, with the addition of the western bay and Georgian period elements including the ornamental fireplaces, decorative plasterwork ceilings, joinery, and fine architectural metalwork. Throughout the restoration project of Kent House, Robin Walker Architects have worked closely with the Georgian Society to ensure the house is restored to its historic splendour. All of these practitioners are widely recognised as the leading consultants for Georgian restoration works in the United Kingdom and emphasise the integrity and excellence of the restoration project.Specialist contractors and artisans were engaged and the noted Georgian expert Charles Brooking has supervised the period details. Clivenden Conservation have restored the
decorative plasterworks, ornamental ceilings, and marble fireplaces. Gardiner & Co have undertaken the joinery works, including the restoration of the sash windows, window shutters, panel doors, ornamental staircase, and the original timber floors. Rupert Harris Conservation have undertaken the restoration of the architectural metalwork, including the fireplaces and the front railings.

We have in place a comprehensive interior design scheme and schedule to ensure the incoming purchaser can create their ideal living environment. Our experts can assist with every detail of the
interior design process from conception to delivery

The rear garden design includes a sunken courtyard at lower ground floor level with brick paving and planting. The central part of the garden can be divided into areas of lawn and perennials, which are surrounded by gravel walkways and framed by stone benches. A swimming pool structure lies along one side of the boundary wall.
At present, the design includes a garage at the end of the garden that will be accessed via a gravel entrance courtyard, which includes four Acer campestre trees that have been chosen for their interesting foliage and will also provide shade during the summer months.
