3 Bedroom House, The Wardrobe, Old Palace Yard, Richmond, TW9 1PA

Tenure Type: Leasehold

Property Description

A Grade I listed building scheduled as being of special architectural and historic interest. The row of houses known as The Wardrobe incorporates the remains of Richmond Palace, built by Henry VII on the site of the Medieval Sheen Palace. Richmond Palace, built between 1498 and 1501, was a favourite residence of Elizabeth I and was used by the Stuart Princes of Wales until the middle of the 17th century. The Wardrobe buildings were built by Henry VII and housed the apparel and other personal possessions of the royal family. This rich history has attracted several residents, including Viscount Cave, Lord Chancellor in Conservative governments between 1922 and 1928. The garden side of the house was refronted in the reign of Queen Anne, very probably by skilled craftsman of the Board of Works (then headed by Sir Christopher Wren, who had surveyed the palace in the 1680s). It remained one house until 1957, then it was sympathetically converted by the Crown to provide three homes, of which No. 3 is the end house. Architecturally, the property is of distinction indicated by its Grade I listing, and its many features include the handsome rear elevation with a large central pediment, and extensive period panelling and doors.

At the rear of the house the large private garden is boundaried by one of the original palace walls, believed to have once had access through it to the Palace Chapel. Other features of the gardens include a summer house, pond and ancient Judas tree. The front of the house offers private forecourt parking as well as a walled front garden.

The house is located just off Richmond Green and only few hundred metres away from Richmond's elegant town centre as well as the most beautiful part of the River Thames made famous by JMW Turner's paintings. Many boutiques and cafes populate the nearby street and lanes, along with a collection of mainstream retailers. Kew Gardens and Richmond Park, with its 2500 acres of stunning deer inhabited parkland, are also both around a mile away. Richmond station provides a fast and direct service into London Waterloo, plus District Line Underground and London Overground services. The A316 is close by and becomes the M3 after five miles, allowing a fast transfer to the M25 or continuation to the west. The opposite direction takes you directly into central London, with Hyde Park Corner being just over eight miles away.

Additional Information
This property is to be sold on a Crown leasehold which was granted on the 5th July 1997 for 150 years at a peppercorn rent.
