A rare and exceptional historic period freehold building set on majestic Richmond Hill with breathtaking views, marketed for the first time in almost 100 years.

74 Richmond Hill, known as Bonnie Brae which translates from Gaelic as ‘Pleasant Hill by a River’, was built as a family house. This substantial Victorian property offered eight bedrooms, three reception rooms, a conservatory, a large kitchen and butler’s / maid’s quarters on the lower ground floor. The property is currently arranged as four apartments and offers scope for further development or reinstatement subject to the usual consents. Bonnie Brae has survived two World Wars, two Queens, three Kings and numerous Rock Star neighbours. Few properties of this size and location come to the market in Richmond and fewer still have a view protected by an Act of Parliament. Situated on the brow of Richmond Hill, overlooking the Terrace Gardens and the River Thames, this late Victorian five story home offering accommodation of almost 4500 sq. feet, was built over a century ago and yet has been enjoyed by only two families. The current owner’s great grandfather bought the house as a wedding present for his only son. Richmond upon Thames is renowned for beautiful parks, and riverside walks. Across the road are the Terrace Gardens, a public park opened in 1887 as a formal space for perambulating and relaxing which was upgraded in 2009 with sustainable planting, traditional rose gardens and herbaceous borders. A short walkaway is Richmond Park, which at almost 1000 hectares (2500 acres) is the largest Royal Park in London and home to around 650 deer. A pastoral landscape of hills, woodlands, ponds, gardens and grasslands set amongst ancient trees offers a peaceful respite to visitors. The Park is designated as a National Nature Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Special Area of Conservation. Richmond is a vibrant community with an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and local amenities. Richmond Station offers excellent transport links to London and the West of England, yet it is just ten miles from Heathrow Airport. The town boasts three cinemas, two theatres, and a variety of live music venues. The arts and music have always been an important part of Richmond town life and it has been chosen as a home by many people from the entertainment industry. Richmond Hill is surrounded by many impressive vistas, the best of which can be seen from the front windows of Bonnie Brae. JMW Turner’s famous 1819 painting “Richmond Hill” captures this view looking over the Terrace Gardens and Petersham Meadows and on to the river Thames. The view is preserved by the Richmond, Petersham and Ham Open Spaces Act 1902 ensuring that it will be seen from the house for years to come. Bonnie Brae, a unique property located in one of the most desirable areas of London, will appeal to those looking for a forever home within a family-orientated community surrounded by river walks and leafy parks but with all the amenities and attractions of city living on your doorstep.
