An amazing house for sale overlooking Richmond Park.

‘One of the most architecturally interesting houses to have come to the local market in many years, All Saints House is situated in a secluded position on Bute Avenue, a private road just off Sudbrook Lane which leads to Richmond Golf Club. The church, which has never been consecrated and which took almost 10 years to complete between 1899 and 1909, was built on the grounds of the former Bute House estate. Mrs Rachael Warde commissioned the renowned designer J Kelly to build the property as a memorial to her late parents who had lived at Petersham House and her aim at the time was to also stop further property development in the area.  Petersham is much older in origin than Richmond and can be dated back to Saxon times and beyond the area between Petersham and Richmond itself is relatively untouched has not been swallowed by the greater London metropolitan sprawl and as a result enjoys fabulous protected green spaces, the river and meadows and a number beautiful period houses. Richmond Park, with 2500 acres of parkland, is moments from the house and ideal for walking, cycling, and riding.’
