About this property

  • Garden Cottage is a delightful double fronted detached Victorian home, in need of complete renovation, that occupies a magical plot and setting within the much acclaimed Twickenham Riverside Conservation Area. As a mark of its local importance it is designated as a building of townscape merit by the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames. Built circa 1860 it was originally the residence of the head gardener of the Orleans House Estate - known for its fine gardens as far back as 1650, when the Parliamentary Survey of Twickenham recorded 'extensive cherry and peach orchards with flowerbeds linked by gravel walks and a kitchen garden.' Currently 1162 square feet planning consent was granted on April 7th 2022 (and remains current for 3 years) to substantially increase the footprint of the house. The proposed scheme was designed by local award-winning boutique practice Morgan Harris Architects Ltd, who also gained the planning permission. Please note that the attached floorplan represents what there is currently planning for and is not a plan of the existing building, which can also be provided upon request. Please also note that the photos shown are a combination of the existing building and computer generated images of the proposed scheme, that has had planning permission granted. What really makes Garden Cottage so unique is how discrete the setting is. Cocooned by its gorgeous listed wall that so beautifully frames its north and south gardens, it affords excellent privacy and a real feeling of 'country living in town.'

It is beyond rare to find a plot of this size in this location, especially one that is so discretely tucked away

Local information

  • The house occupies an enviable position opposite the Orleans road entrance to the stunning open acres of Marble Hill park, that in turn adjoin a particularly scenic stretch of the River Thames - providing 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 a mile) away from Richmond town, with its sophisticated yet charming selection of shops, boutiques and restaurants.
