Location: Richmond, London

Georgian architecture gets a contemporary makeover at this detached new build house, set on the edge of London’s Richmond Park.

Langdale House has Georgian-style symmetry and proportions set in a light-filled, energy-efficient building. It has an open floor plan, landscaped gardens, extensive glazing and country-meets-town stylings.

Standing behind a gated entrance, its facade features a Belgian blue stone portico and window surrounds, rows of tall sash windows, a cluster of hedge balls and two cypress trees, all of which create a sense of arrival and a refined look.

According to selling agent Guy Bradshaw, the six-bedroom house “has a‘zonal’ aspect” to its design, with living, sleeping and entertaining spaces. Its garden acts as an additional living space, with its formal, tiered design.

The dining area has space and light in abundance and views to the smart gardens beyond.

Alongside its open-plan family room, which opens onto its garden, it has a well-planned “fun space,” which incorporates a gym and a media/games room, and a spacious principal bedroom suite, which provides a sanctuary for parents away from the main living spaces.

Balancing out the clean, modern lines inside are wide, light-oak floorboards, pale green, gray and blue paint hues, and many handcrafted details, including tulipwood kitchen cabinetry, a twisting solid oak staircase and a wine room with full-length, all-round timber wine racks.

The house was built late last year by Richstone Properties, a local developer with an extensive knowledge of Georgian architecture—in 2019 it undertook a £40-million restoration of a nearby Georgian manor house known as Templeton House.

The four-story, 8,423-square-foot house has six bedrooms (and the principal suite has a dressing room) and five bathrooms (three are en-suite) spread over two floors, a reception room, study and an open-plan kitchen/living/dining room. Its lower ground floor has the self-contained studio flat, a gym, a catering kitchen, entertainment room, a laundry room, a garden and an integral garage.


Its open-plan family room extends to more than 10,000 square feet. It has a 0.25-acre garden split over four levels, a bespoke kitchen with Miele appliances, a fully equipped gym, a temperature-controlled wine room, underfloor heating throughout, and air conditioning and an integrated wireless audio system in some rooms. Its self-contained flat and entertainment room have small terraces, bringing in natural light and fresh air.

In its grounds is a double-entry drive with a video entry system and landscaped gardens. The house is fitted with a Banham security system with CCTV and 24-hour monitoring and has solar thermal panels for hot water, whole-house ventilation and heat recovery system, and air source heat pump, which reduce fuel bills.

The after-care service includes two years’ complimentary maintenance—from regular gardening, gutter clearing, window cleaning to upkeep of all mechanical installations and security.

The wine cellar can hold hundreds of bottles and is temperature controlled and lit with LED lighting.
