Property description

A recently refurbished former Royal building located in Richmond’s Old Deer Park, nine miles from Central London. Available on a Short let basis.

This historic Grade I listed private residence overlooks its own lake and was built for King George III as his Observatory in 1769 by the well-known architect of the day, Sir William Chambers. The property stands in seven acres of parkland and is reached by a private drive running through The Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Course.

The King’s Observatory has been converted to a prime residence and retains many of its original features, including listed display cabinets that previously housed the King’s collection of scientific instruments. The property has been finished to uncompromisingly high standards, demonstrating outstanding craftsmanship. The house features state-of-the-art Audio-Visual automation and climate control throughout, including full air-conditioning on the lower ground and first floors. Extensive security systems are incorporated throughout the property and grounds.

The property comprises three floors interconnected by lift. There is an additional and separate entrance to the Garden Foyer located on the lower ground floor. The accommodation includes reception room, drawing room, dining room, South facing library leading to stairs to an outside terrace, four double bedrooms with dressing rooms and en-suite marble bathrooms, family room, guest cloakroom, kitchen, with utility area and larder, staff toilets and various other storage areas. Views of the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed from the roof terrace. The seven acres of grounds are planted for a future landscape of wild flowers and indigenous grasses. The property has its own lake complete with Portland stone boathouse designed to be in keeping with the Palladian style of the house. The lake is used by a wide range of wildfowl. The house has extensive 360 degree panoramic views across the surrounding golf course. There is extensive car parking with covered space for three cars. Four ha-has have been strategically placed to enhance the security of the property.

Richmond Station, with its mainline and underground lines, is 0.7 miles away, whilst London Heathrow Airport is approximately 11 miles away. EPC exempt
