    About this property

    • This exquisite and important early Georgian Grade II* listed family home was built circa 1721 by Captain John Gray, who was responsible for the construction of the whole of Montpelier Row - one of the finest examples of Georgian streets in Greater London. Set behind wrought iron railings Suffolk House has a striking facade, featuring beautifully regimented fenestration with distinctive soldier coursing and an enchanting pilastered entrance canopy with a delightful fanlight. Internally this period integrity is also beautifully intact, with notable features including a particularly fine staircase, panelled walls, gorgeous fireplaces, tall multi paned sash hung windows and operational box shutters. All of which are complimented by the tasteful decor and excellent flow of natural light. The aspect to the front of the house is almost entirely green in the summer months and in the winter enables a view towards
      Marble Hill Park and Richmond Hill.

      On first entering one is greeted by the splendid panelled reception hall with a gently rising and most elegant staircase. Staying on this level there is a family room to the front and a charming country style kitchen/dining room to the rear, featuring an Aga and a wonderful flagstone floor. This room opens up generously onto the garden, with folding doors 'bringing the outside in.' Above the extended kitchen there is an artists studio, designed by Geoffrey Darke - a much acclaimed architect. To the first floor there is a fabulous panelled drawing room that occupies the full width of the house and provides a perfect space for formal entertaining, with its lovely proportions and high ceilings. There is also a study to this floor. The well appointed principal bedroom suite occupies the entire second floor and has an ensuite bathroom and dressing room. There are three additional bedroom to the third (top) floor, as well as a family bathroom. The lower ground floor provides an additional guest bedroom and bathroom, in addition to a wine cellar, laundry room and extensive storage to the cellars and vaults.

      To the rear of the house there is a stunning and well established walled garden that is beautifully stocked and enjoys a south west orientation. To the front of the house, across the road, there is a gravelled area, providing off street parking for at least two cars.

    Local information

    • The house occupies an enviable position, adjacent to the stunning open acres of Marble Hill Park that in turn adjoin a particularly scenic stretch of the River Thames - combining to provide a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life. With this semi rural backdrop it is difficult to believe that you are within approximately 10 miles of Hyde Park Corner and just a pleasant riverside stroll (of under a mile) away from Richmond town, with its sophisticated yet charming selection of shops, boutiques and restaurants.
    • Richmond train station (within about one mile) provides a rapid and direct service into London Waterloo, as well as the District line tube and overland to Stratford, via North London. Whilst even closer at hand the delightful village of St Margarets also has a train station with a direct overland service to London Waterloo.
    • The A316 is within approximately half a mile and adjoins the M3 at Sunbury, providing easy access to the south west or central London in the other direction. The M3 in turn adjoins the M25 orbital motorway and thereby offers convenient access to Gatwick and Heathrow international airports.
    • Local schools enjoy an enviable reputation and are considered amongst the best in the country.
