About this property

  • Dating from 1741 and significantly remodeled by the Hunton family, who founded the notable Richmond law firm Hunton & Williams, in the late 18th century, this attractive three storey townhouse is one of the finest on the street which has no less than twenty two Grade II listed properties.

    Extending to almost 9000 sq/ft this is a grand house, large but not too large, many of the rooms of near perfect proportion, the majority showcasing some fabulous period features, none more eye catching than the Jacobean fireplace which greets you in the entrance hall. The house has served several members of the same family in recent years, each floor having a separate kitchen and several bathrooms, aside from the top floor which currently provides a sixth bedroom. There is clear potential to convert the property back into a large family house or reconfigure to provide ample accommodation for dependent family members.

    Another highlight of the property is the outside space, divided into three inviting areas, a top terrace accessed via the orangery, the main lawned garden accessed via gently sloping steps and a side patio adjacent to the kitchen. There is a gated side passageway leading from Frenchgate and the garage (which is beneath a neighboring cottage), and a further gated doorway into the lower garden which is true oasis enclosed by high brick walls and a screen of mature shrubs and specimen trees. The expansive cellars provide ample storage and workspace.
