An exquisite Georgian home perched on the banks of the River Thames.
In 1711 the Earl of Cholmondeley exchanged plots of land
with Richard Hill who lived in Trumpeters' House next door,
thus giving him a parcel of land by the river. The Earl died in
1724 and his son, the 3rd Earl, built Cholmondeley House
on the riverside in 1740 after he had acquired more land.
Nestling idyllically on the banks of one of the finest and most picturesque stretches of the River Thames, Cholmondeley House is an exquisite and laterally configured Grade II listed Georgian family home. Beautifully retaining its period integrity the property boasts spectacular views of the river, Richmond Bridge (the oldest surviving Thames bridge in London) and Richmond Hill.
Of particular note is the most elegant first floor drawing room with its wonderful proportions and gracious three window bay that floods the room with light. The house is tastefully presented and further benefits from underfloor heating to the ground floor, a very welcoming reception hallway with a striking circular atrium roof light and the rare commodity that is a garage (with a laundry/workshop area too).
The house is discretely positioned behind a deep walled front garden that gives excellent privacy and receives the morning sun, whilst to the rear of the house there is a delightful south west facing 'river garden' that retains the afternoon sunshine.
